Drain the swamp University of North Texas! Say NO to Donald Trump, Jr!

This petition had 1,302 supporters

The University of North Texas is a University that prides itself on diversity and inclusion. Anyone who represents the University should share those same values. Inviting divisive guest speaker Donald Trump, Jr. to our campus for the UNT Kuehne Speaker Series will bring about reproach to the University. He lacks integrity, demeans entire groups of people and has shown he is incapable of following any sort of moral compass as it relates to human decency. He lies repeatedly, shares tweets that compare Syrian refugees to Skittles implying they will kill people, tweets anti-Semitic memes, praises Alt-Right misogynist Mike Cernovich who is known for once tweeting “Have you guys ever tried ‘raping’ a girl without using force? Try it. It’s basically impossible. Date rape does not exist.”  In February 2016, Cernovich tweeted: “Not being a slut is the only proven way to avoid AIDS. If you love Black women, slut shame them.” In spite of his history of racist and sexist tweets, Donald Trump, Jr thinks he "deserves a Pulitzer Prize..." 

Our value statment clearly says "UNT will be a diverse and inclusive institution creating knowledge and innovations that will shape the future, while cultivating excellence in the next generation of scholars and leaders for the global community." Donald Trump, Jr. lives a life contradictory to all that our great University stands for. He is the voice of America's ugly underbelly and shouldn't be welcome on our campus.
