Your Speech Is Not Free If You Are Pro-Life

by Sarah Nahrgang Every day in America, 3,000 innocent lives are taken. That is ¼ of our generation. Our brothers. Our sisters. Our friends. Our peers. Nearly 60 million children have been killed by abortion since 1973. They have no voice. They have no rights. When a group of pro-lifers dared to stand up for these rights on Monday, they were shouted over and forced to leave. This is just another case of conservative viewpoints being shut down on…

The Absurdity of “Unfree Expression”

by Kevin Fenchak The Daily Collegian has really pushed the envelope on its generally mediocre, often sloppily edited, and consistently insipid opinion commentary. By publishing columnist Dominique Servati’s article, entitled “When does the first amendment go too far to protect hate speech?”, they have lowered the bar even further. Servati’s argument is not only legally wrong, it is philosophically vacuous and serves only to reinforce the prejudices of leftist students. The importance of an article such as this is…

Purging The Party

by Will Sanders During the Presidential campaign, the news was filled with prominent GOP backers and strategists such as George Will leaving the Republican Party. The media heralded this exodus as indicative of the collapse of the Republican Party brought on by Trump. Surprisingly, the media was correct – but too soon in their prediction. This slow-motion death is still ongoing and is increasing in speed as the Party suffers from more dysfunction and infighting due to its inability…

Kaepernick in The Current Year

by Dominic Decinti The most overused meme in this decade is “It’s the Current Year”, an appeal to beliefs which are presupposed to be the only acceptable modern discourse. Whatever the debate, this appeal to the Zeitgeist is inescapable. It gets thrown around like a football in the West Coast offense. For my readers with a less than stellar football IQ, that is the style of play with all the passes and touchdowns. The one time I will use that…

Equifax Hack Exposes More Than SSN

by Drew P. On September 7th, one of the three credit reporting agencies, Equifax, revealed that the personal information of 143 million Americans has been compromised in a cyber-attack that happened months prior. What makes matters worse is that Equifax is only offering one year of identity theft protection with their own product, TrustedID, which is owned by Equifax. After having my data compromised as a result of Equifax’s incompetence, I certainly wouldn’t trust a company owned by them…

A Conservative Freshman’s First Impressions at PSU

by Andrew Johnson Throughout high school, I began to hear more and more about the prolificacy of strong liberal biases on college campuses from both professors and students; thus, I approached my first semester at PSU politically cautious, but not politically confrontational. My first semester was relatively lax in terms of politics. I took mostly math and science courses which tend to avoid any political influences. However, I was required by the university to take a class called “PSU 16.”…

9/11 Memorial

by Vincent Cucchiara 16 years ago today a tragedy of epic proportions took place on American soil. This attack was not only an example of the brutal violence of which some people are capable, but also a reminder of their absolute hatred of the values and the people which have made the West so exceptional. Take a moment today to remember that your country is a great country, no matter what problems it may have and no matter the…

Students Express Outrage at the Possibility of Enforcing Immigration Law

by Vincent Cucchiara On Friday, 8 September, the Planned Parenthood Generation Action at PSU club organized to defend the rights of people who, presumably, have a right to live in this country only now that they’re outside a womb. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Tuesday that the federal government would be discontinuing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA, an executive order designed to provide an exemption from deportation enforcement for children whose parents did not have…

Left-Wing Politics of Hate on Display: Outrageous Statements from PSU Charlottesville Panel

by Kevin Fenchak and Vincent Cucchiara Penn State’s university-sanctioned panel discussion on September 5th, titled “Charlottesville: What Happened? What Now?” put left-wing hysteria front-and-center for any who cared to attend. While the turnout consisted of an entirely unsurprising coalition of minority students and self-flagellating whites, the narrative presented by the panelists was at once completely predictable and stunningly honest as to their views and intentions. The panelists, drawn from the university’s professional grievance departments (think anything ending in “Studies”),…

Harvey Brings the Worst to America, America Brings the Best to Harvey

By Jack T. With the disaster in Texas flooding block after block of residential neighborhoods, many Americans have put aside their daily toils and comforts for the relatively thankless task of rescuing stranded men, women, and children from the cold and brackish waters. What’s most amazing about the recovery effort is not only the beautiful display of American patriotism and love, but also the massive juxtaposition to the tragedy in Charlottesville. In Charlottesville we saw right wing identitarians brawl…
