From their website (my italics):

Turning Point USA achieves its mission of identifying, organizing, and empowering free market activists through the National Field Program, which aims to:

Launch, organize, and support student groups that exist to educate students about the benefits of limited government, capitalism, and freedom

Build and maintain the largest national database of students who believe in capitalism and free markets

Unite like-minded campus organizations in an effort to increase impact and activism collaboration

Educate students about the importance of free market values through well-planned, effective activism initiatives

Re-brand free market values on college campuses through student-driven messaging efforts and face-to-face conversations

Effectively push back against intolerance and bias against conservatives in higher education

Empower and train students to join the movement and become activists on their campuses and within their communities

Too bad Ocasio-Cortez is refusing to debate so far -- if she did, I think it would be a VERY interesting debate!


P.S. For those who haven't kept up with all the latest acronyms, here is what LGTBQIA+ means:

L - Lesbian. Lesbian is a term used to refer to homosexual females.
G - Gay. Gay is a term used to refer to homosexuality, a homosexual person, or a homosexual male.
B - Bisexual. Bisexual is when a person is attracted to two sexes/genders.
T - Trans. Trans is an umbrella term for transgender and transsexual people.
Q - *****/Questioning. ***** is an umbrella term for all of those who are not heterosexual and/or cisgender*. Questioning is when a person isn't 100% sure of their sexual orientation and/or gender, and are trying to find their true identity.
I - Intersex. Intersex is when a person has an indeterminate mix of primary and secondary sex characteristics.
A - Asexuality. Asexuality is when a person experiences no (or little, if referring to demisexuality or grey-asexuality) sexual attraction to people.
+ - The "+" symbol simply stands for all of the other sexualities, sexes, and genders that aren't included in these few letters.

*Cisgender definition: Denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex.

Your thread title is a crackup. I'm glad I wasn't sipping coffee or a diet soda when I read it.

During the last race for Governor here in Texas, the nominee for the Democrat party was Wendy Davis.

One of the monikers affixed to her by opponents was 'Abortion Barbie'.

Looks like the Conservative talking heads are looking for a new "Hillary" or "Pelosi" to discuss 7x24. Gotta throw some red meat to the base and Hillary and Pelosi are now beef jerky.

Do we now need to shoot down this person, whoever it is and for whatever reason they believe they are more important than millions of others like we did Shapiro?

This is as silly as DEMANDING that Mitch McConnell debate Josh Marshall from TPM or Rafael Rivero from OccupyDemocrats... and getting upset when he doesn't.
