One good idea: Ask college donors to stop donating until colleges stop pushing violent leftism

Turning Point USA, the student-focused conservative nonprofit, recently announced its new project, ‘DivestU’, which encourages conservative Americans to stop donating to their alma maters. The idea? To show that left-wing bias will no longer be tolerated. The move comes at a time when universities anticipate financial struggles as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. ...

The goal of the project, according to the spokesperson, is to spark more than 1,000 divestments totaling $1 billion. The organization’s website has a form for relevant university donors to fill out. TPUSA staff then reaches out to confirm that the individual has previously sent funds to the stated university and plans to stop doing so. The spokesperson said that the funds are not required to go elsewhere, although a TPUSA donation tab is featured on the rightward column of the DivestU webpage.

I like the potential outcome. I think reducing radical leftism in academia is incredibly important.

Unfortunately this also somewhat legitimizes cancel culture via encouraging people to withhold their money based on ideology.
