A New Form of ‘Poll Tax’ for Republicans at the University of Washington

The University of Washington College Republicans, a 25-member student group, has invited Patriot Prayer to take part in a rally on campus on Saturday, February 10, 2018. As far as I can tell, Patriot Prayer has never committed nor advocated violence of any kind but have had members physically attacked by leftist activists.

UW Police Chief John Vinson released a statement saying the security cost “is likely to exceed the $17,000 estimate provided by UWPD.” He further stated what seemed an obligatory and contradictory statement regarding the university‚Äôs “support” of College Republicans’ “right to invite speakers.”
