Announced speakers at CPAC 2019 include: Television and radio personality Mark Levin, Senator Mike Lee (R – Utah), Judge Jeanine Pirro, Brexit leader Nigel Farage, and RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel.
“CPAC attracts a large number of young conservatives. Those are the same students targeted on campus for their political views. My presentation will bring attention to the continuing issue of attacks on conservative speakers and programs on campuses across the country,” said Strobl. “Time and again free speech is being restricted by university administrators. These administrators do little or nothing to prevent violent protesters and hecklers who effectively veto conservative speech. That is not free speech.”
