Campus Reform first reported the sign.
The sign was posted on the Turning Point USA Rockies Territory Instagram account.
Turning Point Action is an American nonprofit organization that champions conservative values on high school, college, and university campuses across the country.
The account called out the school for “intolerance,” adding, “We didn’t even have an event, but we gotta love @coloradostateuniversity’s intolerance.”
Colorado State University, where tuition is $31,712 a year for international students, has been hostile to conservative organizations in recent months.
Several incidents occurred during the fall 2021 semester.
In one, a student was filmed harassing members of the Turning Point band calling them “right-wing morons” and noting that “disrupting one of your activities is actually probably the one of the most ethical and best things I can do with my time”.
Last fall, students were told they needed to be vaccinated if they were on school property or risked being arrested and charged with trespassing.
A week later, in October 2021, a liberal student was filmed admitting to flipping chapter property before slapping a band member.
Also in the fall, a student was caught stealing a sign advocating against vaccination mandates after the university threatened any student who did not record their vaccination status with arrest for trespassing.
The university later clarified its policy, saying it “does not arrest unvaccinated students,” as long as they provide their vaccination information or declare an exemption.
Conservative students on the mostly liberal campus are part of Turning Point Action, an American nonprofit organization that champions conservative values on high school, college, and university campuses across the country.
