Charlie Kirk is scheduled to appear at CSU Long Beach on Tuesday, October 23, 2018. The following is a call from organizers on the ground for a mobilization at CSULB in Long Beach, CA.
Charlie Kirk founded Turning Points USA in 2012 with the aim of growing the conservative movement on college campus. TPUSA likes to call itself a grassroots reaction to rampant liberalism on college campuses but it was, in fact, founded with millions of dollars from the likes of Foster Friess. In 2016, its own employees accused the organization of engaging in racist practices. They further claimed the organization may have been engaged in illegal activity during the 2016 presidential elections. In 2016, TPUSA also started its “Professor Watchlist” to actively intimidate, silence, and harass professors it sees as a part of grand liberal conspiracy playing out on college campuses.
