GOP surrogates rally at UH event for Trump and right-wing ideas

Star-Adv Sept 21, 2018: … The event, organized by the Hawaii Republican Party and Young Republicans on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus, included a 45-minute talk and question-and-answer session at Kuykendall Hall that was attended by about 200 people. The Republican Party promoted the event as a chance to hear diverse ideas “at a time of increased campus censorship by snowflakes with their safe spaces.”

The two main themes of the talk: America is the greatest country in the world and the Democratic Party has been harming black people through their government programs for the past six decades.

“In America right now there is a big divide,” Kirk told the crowd that included Trump supporters and opponents, and others there just to observe. “Are you thankful to live in America or are you angry to live in America? If you are thankful you’re most likely a Republican, and if you are angry you are most likely a Democrat. You should be kissing the ground saying, ‘Thank you God that I live in the greatest country on this earth.’”

Owens, who is black, said that blacks and other minorities have been brainwashed into supporting the Democratic Party.

“We lost everything by voting Democratic for the last 60 years,” she said. “We have lost everything. Our families have been destroyed, our communities have been decimated.”

She said government welfare programs have “acted like a drug dealer with the black community.”

The audience erupted within the first 15 minutes of their talk, with one critic trying to interrupt and others shouting him down. Owens and Kirk seemed to revel in the controversy, spouting off rapid-fire responses to those who challenged them.

But they were eager to cut the talk short as the main event was outside under a tent in a campus center courtyard. There they sat behind a table with a sign that read: “White privilege is a myth. Change my mind” and encouraged those who didn’t agree to approach a microphone for debate.

About 200 students gathered out front to watch people spar with Owens and Kirk, who often smirked at their political challengers or looked at them with boredom or disdain.

The outdoor spectacle lasted about an hour and a half and often devolved into shouting and was raucous for the UH campus whose students aren’t known for their political engagement. ….

Threats of violence won't stop UH event with Trump surrogates

News Release from Hawaii Republican Party

HONOLULU (September 19, 2018) -- Thursday's event with nationally recognized Trump surrogates Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus will go ahead as planned despite threats of violence, the Hawaii Republican Party announced Wednesday.

Berniecrats and left-wing #Resist activists made veiled and not-so-veiled threats on Twitter and other social media channels. The threats included assaulting Owens and Kirk with frozen poop.

Responding to the threats, Owens said on Twitter: "Frozen poop?! Hahahaha that’s a first.  Let’s do this Hawaii!"

The event, sponsored by the Hawaii Republican Party, is intended to affirm the traditional role of college as a marketplace of ideas and ensure that UH Manoa students have an opportunity to hear all perspectives. It comes at a time of increased campus censorship by snowflakes with their safe spaces.

Owens and Kirk will speak at 2 p.m. in Auditorium 101 at Kuykendall Hall (2517-2523 Correa Road on the UH Manoa campus).

The event is open to working journalists with valid media credentials. 


Free speech comes to UH Manoa: Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk speaking

News Release from Hawaii Republican Party

HONOLULU (September 12, 2018) — National speakers Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk will headline a free speech event on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Owens and Kirk, of the campus activist organization Turning Points USA, are popular TV surrogates for President Donald J. Trump. Singer and songwriter Kanye West tweeted about Owens, saying: "I love the way Candace Owens thinks."

"Students must hear all perspectives: Liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican," said Hawaii Republican Party Chairman Shirlene DelaCruz Santiago Ostrov, whose party is sponsoring the event. "Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens bring a much-needed voice to campus, which is supposed to be a marketplace for ideas but sadly has become a bastion of safe spaces for snowflakes intolerant of other viewpoints."

The event will be held at 2 p.m. on September 20 in Auditorium 101 of Kuykendall Hall, which is located at 2517-2523 Correa Road on the UH Manoa campus.

Held in partnership with the Young Republicans of Hawaii, the event is free and open to the public.
