The Santa Clara University student Senate denied a petition to establish a chapter of the conservative nonprofit, Turning Point USA.
Opponents said the group would make them feel “unsafe” and claimed it stands against “humanity,” according to reports.
“We just want to reiterate that this organization, nationally and here on this campus, is against our ideals as a university of Jesuit philosophy,” one student said in a video, according to The Washington Times.
“And more than anything, it is against our humanity, and that is something every single senator needs to take into consideration when it comes to voting for these individuals, or this group,” the student continued.
“This is not right. This is not who (sic) we stand for as a whole university,” the student said.
In addition, The Daily Caller reports that a full-time university employee showed the student senators a PowerPoint presentation that connected Turning Point USA with white supremacist organizations.
