Update: DePaul University is Reconsidering its Steven Crowder Ban
Please note the byline. This isn't Crowder writing about himself. And he's totally not looking over my shoulder as I do.
We were surprised to find out Steven was "banned" from performing at DePaul University. Mainly because he was never scheduled to perform at DePaul University. Simply the idea of Crowder was enough to cause the Speaker Review Board to have a seizure.
But rejoice, Crowderheads! It would appear the review board doesn't think Crowder is Literally Hitler. At least not officially. From those meddling kids at Campus Reform:
DePaul University has agreed to reconsider its decision to reject a request from its Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter to hold an event featuring Steven Crowder.
The school’s Speaker Review Board had initially denied the request on the grounds that it had determined that the conservative comedian “creates videos to purposely to rouse and provoke people by making fun of the opposing side,” which the Board felt was inconsistent with “DePaul’s educational mission.”
Unlike DePaul which causes controversy by threatening to arrest Ben Shapiro if he stepped foot on campus. Ben Shapiro. Not to be confused with Chewbacca, the Wookiee who rips arms from sockets if he loses. Shapiro.
“Upon further review of the Student Organization Speaker Review procedures, it has been determined that the procedures were incorrectly followed in the case of the DePaul Young Americans for Freedom (DYAF) speaker application for Steven Crowder,” Burke wrote, specifying that the Board had failed to invite any YAF members to discuss the Crowder application.
“Therefore the decision to not approve DYAF’s request for Steven Crowder to speak at DePaul has been rescinded and the Board will reconsider the DYAF Crowder application at its next meeting,” she informed Burkhart.
Not that the YAF is optimistic things will change. We'll probably go through this again next month. Crowder's comedy being as scary and mean as it is.
It just means we totally have to play DePaul University now.
