Radical Leftists Trash Pro-Life Display at DePaul University

Conservative students at DePaul University marked the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade with a flag display by the campus library.

But when the conservatives came back at 5 PM to take down the display they found that radical activists had destroyed it and dumped it in trash cans. Three women were seen on camera trashing the display.

DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the US.
Todd Starnes at FOX News reported:

As many as 20 vandals destroyed an elaborate pro-life display at DePaul University, the nation’s largest Catholic university.

The Young Americans for Freedom chapter received permission to erect 500 blue and pink flags to mark the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. The flags represented the number of unborn children aborted every day.

YAF spokesperson Kate Edwards told Fox News that surveillance video shows as many as 20 people ripping up the flags and stuffing them into trash cans.

“They had been thrown and stuffed into various trash cans outside the library,” Edwards said. “If this happens on the largest Catholic university campus in our nation – it can happen anywhere.”

University spokesperson Cindy Lawson told Fox News they are investigating the vandalism and are attempting to find out who is responsible. She could not confirm the exact number of flags that were destroyed.

“DePaul has a very clear free speech policy,” Lawson said. “And although we don’t expect all of our students to be of the same mind on issues, we do stress the importance of respecting others’ right to freely express their opinions on issues.”

    ‘leftists’, ‘libs’, ‘progressives’ WHATEVER they label themselves, are the most vicious hypocrites… scream and yell for everyone to accept their position (no matter what it is on) and if some others are in disagreement to them, they lash out physically (usually against the law, which of course, makes them criminals), as well as verbally with hatred. I have no idea why anyone would take them serious… they are clowns, evil, evil clowns.

    Typical non-tolerant Leftist behavior. So little respect for other’s freedom of speech they think nothing of putting a stop to it through behavior ranging from downright violence, to death threats, to vandalism. They are no better than Communist thugs.

    Like the rest of Catholicism in America, Catholic higher education has been run into the ground be leftist educators. Only 18% of Catholics attend mass weekly. Divorce rates of Catholics are equal to non-religious rates. Atheist George Soros funds Catholic groups with a leftist agenda. Clergy fear discussing the evil in politics for fear of losing tax exempt status. Democrat politicians openly attack Catholic church teachings and are not excommunicated. A majority of Catholics have voted for pro-abortion president Obama in ’08 and in ’12.

    My fellow Catholics have become just another dysfunctional family of a dysfunctional country.

    The leftists gave the pro-life display flags the same level of respect they give the aborted fetuses – they ripped them out and threw them into the garbage. Does this really surprise anyone?

    If you leave a pro-life display and expect it to be there when you return, you are living on a pink, puffy la-la cloud. Why didn’t someone remain to watch the display, with a really nice camera? Or better 2 people with cameras, one to record the other in case of violence. Take this as an opportunity to catch and get a criminal record started or extended for some liberal nut jobs.

    The Alinsky left always talks about being open minded, but they can’t bring themselves to practice what they lecture.

    Wow! I said this in the new thread, too!

    Ain’t abject fascism grand?

    It’s like the perfect question lately, with the Progs’ behavior *lately.

    *And by “lately” I mean at least since their heroes, Stalin, Hitler, and Mao were alive… and having their devoted followers doing the same exact things.

    15 , the anti- catholic site and article are not appreciated. Yes there are leftists in some diocese in the US, but they are not representative of the Catholic Church, only of secularized Catholics, that America so wanted so much and got. These are noy the whole and starting to die off. Lay off with your nonsense, it is tiresome.

    Franco was leading to lead Spain in civil war against the Socialist, as the Socialist were murdering nuns and priests. When the priests are socialist, will they be expecting us to protect them?

    “…we do stress the importance of respecting others’ right to freely express their opinions on issues.”

    Apparently, not everyone near the university is quite on board with that…

    It’s a shame that DePaul University is located in a City that is one of the major liberal sphincters in the United States, but that’s how it is. My advise: Get out Chicago before it’s too late.
