A conservative youth organization continues to see an uptick in traffic to its Campus Bias Tip Line as students at all levels of education are exposed to radical ideology in what one analyst calls “a major battle in the culture war.”
Kara Zupkus of Young America’s Foundation (YAF) says her organization has received “hundreds and hundreds” of tips since COVID began last year.
“I think a part of it is the fact that everything’s online right now, so it’s a lot easier for students to gain … video or audio of their professors going off the rails in class, saying crazy things, and discriminating against conservative students,” Zupkus submits.
One specific area where YAF has seen an uptick involves instances of critical race theory being pushed in colleges, high schools, and even on kids in elementary schools.
“It’s definitely concerning,” says Zupkus. “We have kept busy exposing all these tips and holding these schools accountable, and we’ve been really glad to see kind of the reaction and the reform that schools have taken from the pressure.”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
