PHOENIX —Turning Point USA, the nation’s largest conservative student organization, is pleased to announce the release of Charlie Kirk’s newest book, Campus Battlefield: How Conservatives Can WIN the Battle on Campus and Why It Matters. Having founded Turing Point USA when he was just 19, Kirk, who recently turned 25, has devoted himself to advancing conservative principles on America’s college campuses.
“I’ve spent the majority of the last six years engaging, encouraging, empowering, and yes, sometimes debating students on America’s college campuses and what I’ve learned will both terrify and inspire most Americans,” says Kirk.“There are far more sinister and destructive forces attempting to indoctrinate students to hate America and Western Culture than ever before, but there is also an openness by students hungry for truth, authenticity and freedom. The left’s death grip on campus culture, on political correctness, and what’s acceptable to think, feel and say, is being challenged like never before. I believe we are in the midst of a once in a generation cultural opportunity and so we must act with urgency, now, if we are going to win this critical fight for the soul of our country.”
Kirk’s Campus Battlefield seeks to take that fight to America’s college campuses, where the left’s decades-long campaign to transform the nation’s universities into radical re-education camps is working. In the book, Kirk argues that free speech, intellectually rigorous debate, and the simple concepts of tolerance and fairness are routinely being corrupted and weaponized to promote radical leftist ideologies, enforce groupthink, and marginalize or eliminate any student, professor, and dean who gets in the way. All the while, these hothouses of close-mindedness are staffed by blame-America, anti-free market, victimology professors who are twisting the minds of tomorrow’s leaders.
Campus Battlefield: How Conservatives Can WIN the Battle on Campus and Why It Mattersis published by Post Hill Press and is distributed by Simon and Schuster. It releases Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018. (ISBN # 9781642930948)
