College Republicans Announce Truth Week Lineup

They say Christmas comes but once a year, but for conservatives at Penn State, Christmas is coming twice this year.

It’s every Republican’s dream — a week full of right-wing politicians, authors, and pundits descending on campus to speak to students. That’s right, it’s almost time for “Truth Week.” Hosted annually by the Penn State College Republicans, Truth Week has brought in the likes of Herman Cain, Ann Coulter, Arthur Laffer, and other renown conservatives to speak on campus over the last several years.

This year’s Truth Week, scheduled for October 14-17, includes three speakers, an awesome mustache, and free NRA stuff.

  • Star Parker (October 14, 8 p.m., 117 Osmond): Parker is a nationally syndicated conservative columnist and political activist. In 1995, Parker founded the Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (CURE).
  • Jack Chambless (October 15, 8 p.m., 362 Willard): Chambless is a professor at Valencia College in Florida. He will speak about “what capitalism really is.” (Worth nothing: He scores well on Rate my Professor for hotness).
  • John Stossel (October 16, 8 p.m., Schwab Auditorium): Stossel is a journalist and libertarian columnist who regularly appears on Fox News. He also happens to have one of the best mustaches in politics. He will be speaking on his newest book “No They Can’t: Why Government Fails-But Individuals Succeed”
  • NRA University (October 17, 8 p.m.): All Attendees receive a free one year membership to the NRA.
