Drakonian Student Government at Drake University

Hat tip The College Fix and Times Delphic

Image result for draconian

Drake University in Des Moines is a private institution. Drake came to the attention of my friends at The College Fix this week when the student government denied recognition to a conservative group called Turning Point USA. They are being deemed "hateful" and "condescending" (because they are pro-life and pro-2nd amendment).

Here is the report from the campus paper, The Times Delphic. It is noted that Creighton University also recently denied recognition to Turning Point USA.

So, rest assured that Drake University students are still safe from conservative thought. Still, it seems rather Drakonian to me.

No pun intended, of course.

There is a conservative Lutheran church I often visit where one family had a daughter who got a full basketball scholarship to Drake. I wonder where in the mix that falls? Oh, did I mention she is of visible African heritage, like most members of the church?
