Bay Buchanan banned from campus

Young America's Foundation reports:
Administrators at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota -- the nation's largest Catholic women’s college -- unexpectedly blocked young conservatives on campus from hosting Bay Buchanan, a popular conservative commentator and U.S. Treasurer under President Reagan. The speech was scheduled for Wednesday, October 22, but was abruptly canceled after college officials deemed Ms. Buchanan's remarks on "feminism and the 2008 Election" too politically charged, citing concerns about the school's tax status. "Because we are a 501(c)(3) organization, the College of St. Catherine has sought to avoid any appearance of partisanship during the 2008 political season," said College spokesman Julie Michener.
That Ms. Michener can say that with a straight face is remarkable, considering the actions of her school's program, Voter Education 2008. Program-sponsored seminars have highlighted student agitators protesting the GOP's convention and featured a representative from the Joint Religious Legislative Task Force, which pushes for universal healthcare and minimum wage increases.
Interesting how this bogus non-partisanship always helps Democrats, huh? I suspect that St. Catherine's actually opposes Bay Buchanan because she's a real pro-life Catholic -- and heaven forfend that students at a Catholic school should ever be exposed to any such thing.

UPDATE: You don't suppose this has anything to do with George Soros spending big bucks to fool Catholics into thinking Obama is pro-life, do you? (Michelle Malkin has more about that.)

  1. opposes Bay Buchanan because she's a real pro-life Catholic

    My Jesuit training emphasized economy in writing.

    You could have dropped "pro-life," because REAL Catholics ARE pro-life.

    Just like REAL WOMEN are pro-life.

    The StKate's crowd would be embarrassed to be contrasted with either Bay B. or Sarah P.
