Fox Nation host Todd Starnes issued a challenge in a new video released by the Young America’s Foundation, calling on conservative college students to stand up for the Constitution.
Starnes said it “grinds my gears” when a conservative student gets silenced for speaking out on behalf of is beliefs, and that the left is “terrified” of ideas such as freedom of speech and personal responsibility.
The video, entitled “Free Speech is for Everyone,” was the latest of the Young America’s Foundation #TruthStraightUp series, which features prominent conservative personalities delivering brief statements articulating conservative principles, using the tagline “nothing but the facts in 60 seconds.”
Other personalities featured on the show include Andrew Klavan, Ben Shapiro, and Michael Knowles from The Daily Wire, conservative filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza, BlazeTV podcast host Allie Stuckey, among others.
Starnes said that conservatives “have a responsibility to be a good citizen of America,” and that means speaking out for conservative principles on college campuses.
“Conservatives need to be able to share their opinions, they need to share their viewpoints,” Starnes said, noting that many conservative students are silenced in the marketplace of ideas.
Fox Nation’s resident Southerner concluded his 60-seconds of facts by issuing a stark warning.
“If conservatives don’t take a stand for the Constitution, quite frankly I don’t know who will,” he said.
