The students say they were told by student leaders that since the university already has a College Republicans chapter, there was no need for another conservative group. Shalala, who was Clinton's Health and Human Services secretary, has ignored a letter asking for help, the four women and their supporters say.It seems to me that the University thinks that left of center students have many different nuances to their ideas, while right of center students are but one homogeneous blob (and I’d wager $5 they call that blob “ultra-right wing.”)
They call the decision discriminatory, because along with a Democratic club, the school has several groups that they say represent liberal beliefs and causes, such as Amnesty International and Students for a Free Tibet.
How typical. I think that the largest, most comprehensive private research university in the southeastern United States with a reputation for academic excellence should have room for more than just one right of center student group, if that's what students want.
