“I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” he said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans.”
“A revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the second amendment is,” he continued.
...Director of Texas A&M’s Memorial Student Center, Luke Altendorf, told Campus Reform on Friday that the university was unaware of Glover’ talking points prior to his speech.
“I had no idea, we really didn’t know that topic was coming up,” he told Campus Reform. “Someone was asking a question about activism, I think that’s where some of that came from.”
Altendorf declined to say if, or how much the school had paid for Glover’s speech, but said student fees were not used.
In the past, however, the university paid Angela Davis and Harry Belafonte $25,000 for their speeches at the same event.
Altendorf also defended the school’s decision to host those controversial speakers with university resources.
“We didn’t feel those speakers you are referring to are bad decisions on these topics because we want to foster discussion,” he said.
The video recording of the event was captured by members of a student group, the Texas Aggie Conservatives (TAC). That group has also created an online petition blasting Texas A&M for its speaker selections.
Eric Schroeder, chairman of the conservative group, called the event “outrageous.”
“It should be a time for real reflection and respect,” he said referring to the memorial breakfast for King. “Instead, the university pushes a political agenda.”
Schroeder also called on university President Bowen Loftin to make up for the event by inviting a conservative speaker of equal star power.First of all, racist America haters like Glover are too ignorant to realize the Second Amendment was created as a buffer against a tyrannical government like the kind we see coming from the Obama Regime (that Glover supports).
I'd like to ask Mr. Altendork why a great university like Texas A&M (whose university system I'm alumni of) feels the need to pay thousands of dollars to Communists like Angela Davis (implicated but acquitted in the 1970 murder of a Marin County judge) and Harry Bellacommie (supporter of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez). Glover is also (according to Discover the Networks) a supporter of Cuba's Fidel Castro and appeared with Hugo Chavez as well.
I would challenge Texas A&M University to invite Dr. Alveda King to speak in honor of her uncle, if they want to honor Dr. King. It is sickening how his legacy of a better America for all races and a color blind society has been hijacked by radical liberals who use MLK Day as a day of bashing America and whites as inherantly racist.
