CRU Response to Isaac Windes & State Press

State Press Article: link

Rick Thomas is in it for the laughs.Or at least that’s what he claims.”

Great, so we know right off the bat this article is going to be a hit job. With no context given, we’re given the insinuation CRU is a not a serious organization.

“…has displayed a flag with origins on the online forum 4chan that some describe as a racist hate symbol.”

Who? Biased sources? What does the actual community say it represents?

Whenever the press uses the phrase “… that some describe as…” it’s typically done in a passive aggressive way to cherry pick inflammatory remarks without taking responsibility for it. Nowhere in this article does Isaac Windes mention that Rick Thomas preferred not to include the flag in the tabling event at ASU. Rick specifically mentioned during the interview that “it was a cringy thing to include for political purposes on campus.” A fellow member however wanted to use it while he tabled, and was approved, because Rick didn’t want to violate his individual freedom of speech.

According to ‘Know Your Meme’, the flag represents a tongue-in-cheek ethnic origin of “shitposters” known as “Kekistanis” who worship the ancient Egyptian diety Kek. In late January 2017, Kekistan began widely circulating on Twitter following its promotion by YouTuber Sargon of Akkad.

“Thomas’ social media includes a slew of tweets featuring alt-right rhetoric and discriminatory language, including posts calling out what he said is a “White Genocide,” a term often used by white nationalists who advocate for a white ethnostate.”

The loaded terminology by the State Press is done to shape public opinion for you. The term ‘White Genocide’ is a critique on modern society which has a double standard against white males.

As an example: If this Georgetown Professor had made the same inflammatory tweet, but replaced the word ‘white’ to ‘black’ or another racial minority, would this professor lose her job? Absolutely! There is clearly a double standard in how we treat groups of people by the color of their skin. Why is it ok for society to be openly hostile to one group and not the other? Is this a political or societal agenda to disenfranchise white males who are known to typically vote conservative?

“White people are genetically inferior and inherently evil and guilty because of their DNA.”

To not recognize this new norm, is a grotesque sign of bias from the State Press.

“I fully support a eugenics policy that utilizes infanticide on pregnancies deemed likely to produce disabled children.” in response to

This statement is pretty consistent with planned parenting founder and Democratic hero Margaret Sanger “that some describe as” openly racist against African Americans. Secondly this was a tweet, made by Rick, in response to another person from 2017. This tweet was made to mock another user’s opinions on their abortion views. Comparing it to a form of infanticide.  Since the original tweet was deleted, it’s extremely irresponsible of the State Press to post this without the proper context.

The rest of the article attempts to further slander Rick and CRU by guilt of association. Yes, racists have been photographed with a Kekistani and Nazi flag… somewhere. Coincidentally the US flag is also in the image, should we also ban American flags from Arizona State University as well? Perhaps the SJWs in the State Press would approve of this.

CRU contains a diverse student population. We have Muslims, Atheists, Jews, and Christians in our ranks. We have White, Black, Native American, Arab, and Indian members. Joshua Bernard, Vice President of College Republicans United was interviewed by Isaac Windes. Strangely enough, he is barely mentioned in the article. Perhaps it’s because Josh is mixed race and does not fit the narrative that CRU is a secret alt right club for white nationalists.

Now that Isaac Windes has built up hype and outrage against CRU, there will probably be a call for action to notify the Dean of Students, review the code of conduct, take funding away, anything to potentially disenfranchise a successful conservative club at ASU.

Emergency Protest Against Jeff Flake

Brett Michael Kavanaugh is an attorney and jurist who serves as a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. On July 9th Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump to replace retiring Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Immediately Democrats dubbed Kavanaugh as an extremist who would likely vote to overturn Roe v Wade, Gay Marriage, and other Progressive causes.  Liberals across the country have called on Democrats to delay the process for as long as possible, betting Democrats would retake Congress after the midterms and would have the votes to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation. 

On September 16, 2018, Christine Blasey Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University, said Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when she was 15 and he was 17.

Jeff Flake is one of four Republicans who are on the fence to confirm.  Earlier in the week he indicated he can only support Kavanaugh after an FBI investigation. Critics say the FBI will not provide any more information that hasn’t already been discovered by the Senate hearing, that this only serves to further delay the process. Current committee chairman Chuck Grassley invoked Joe Biden by quoting:

‘The next person who refers to an FBI report as being worth anything obviously doesn’t understand anything. The FBI explicitly does not — does not, in this or any other case, reach a conclusion. Period’
– Senator Joe Biden on the Anita Hill hearing 1991.

(Anita Hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexual assault)

On September 28th on Friday, CRU member Jonathan Rigney proposed an emergency protest at Senator Flake’s office to urge Flake to confirm without delay. The protest was held Saturday morning at Jeff Flake’s Phoenix office. At the gathering, participants signed their names on a petition written by CRU President Rick Thomas. A pdf scan of the document and signatures was emailed directly to Flake’s official account at
