In the past week, screenshots from Turning Point USA's GroupMe were leaked by individuals in the group. These messages contained heinous statements of homophobia, transphobia, and racism from members of the organization. This is not a political ordeal, rather it's a show of blatant bigotry from the organization of Turning Point USA on campus. Not only does the community spread bigotry and hatred, but they were also promoting their followers on Instagram back in January to commit a form of terrorism by raiding the capital building after Donald Trump lost the 2020 Presidental Election. Turning Point USA's members have made fellow Hokies uncomfortable on more than just one occasion as they have been seen promoting their organization in a booth in front of D2 without masks. Additionally, they also promote their pro-gun agenda which is extremely inappropriate considering the long history of gun violence Virginia Tech has. Virginia Tech is a college for everyone to be accepted, including Muslims, individuals in the LGBTQ+ community, and individuals of color. As of so far, the organization has not released a statement on the matter, has turned off its comments on Instagram, and was even seen liking comments of those who were defending their organization. The hate speech that has come from Virginia Tech's Turning Point USA is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Bigotry has no place in Blacksburg.
