Students attending a conservative conference held by Turning Point USA in West Palm Beach, FL, were told they needed to “expose Islam” for the “ugly thing” it is. Thousands of young Trump supporters gathered in Florida to hear a simple message: the left hates America and ‘destroys everything it touches.’
TPUSA Turning Point USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded on June 5, 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.
Since the founding, Turning Point USA has embarked on a mission to build the most organized, active, and powerful conservative grassroots activist network on college campuses across the country. With a presence on over 1,300 college campuses and high schools across the country, Turning Point USA is the largest and fastest growing youth organization in America.
Business Insider Sophia Witt ((below), the director of Israel outreach for Turning Point USA, directed the “F U-nity: Addressing Terrorism on Campuses” session at the conservative advocacy group’s annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida. “I don’t even want to call it ‘radical Islam’ — it’s just ‘Islam,'” Witt said to applause.
Kirk’s communications director, African-American woman Candace Owens, has made headlines in recent months because of her interactions with the rapper Kanye West and her connection to West’s infamous Oval Office meeting with the president. The publicity Owens got in relation to West helped elevate Turning Point USA’s national stature.
Speakers at the conference included the younger Trump, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, the Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, and the British politician Nigel Farage.
Sophia Witt, the director of Israel and Jewish outreach for Turning Point USA, directed the “F U-nity: Addressing Terrorism on Campuses” session at the conference.. Speaking with several dozen young attendees, Witt decried campus groups that claim solidarity with the Palestinians, singling out a group called Queers for Palestine.
Witt said the current academic climate in the US, which she characterized as overwhelmingly anti-Israel, had translated into a situation in which “they’re actually encouraging terrorism on these campuses.”
In a slideshow presentation, Witt said terrorism used to look like the Nazi Party in Germany but today appeared in the form of Muslim students and professors on college campuses. “I don’t even want to call it ‘radical Islam’ — it’s just ‘Islam,'” Witt said to applause.
“There are pro-Israel organizations telling students to find common ground with the Palestinians,” Witt added. “Screw that — I don’t want to live in peace with you, you’re a terrorist.” Witt told the young people in attendance that they should reject calls to find unity in debates regarding Israel and the Palestinians. “Stop unifying with terrorists,” she said.
Witt said “all” Muslims were “radical” and encouraged the attendees to “expose” them.”There are a lot of ways to go undercover and expose these people,” Witt said. “We absolutely need to expose Islam,” she added. “It’s not just Islam, it’s Muslims too.”
Urging the audience against believing practicing Muslims could be moderate, Witt said: “They’re painting a really pretty picture for a really ugly thing. They’re allowing us to believe there are moderate Muslims.” She said that perhaps the only “good kind” of Muslim was a “nonpracticing” one.
