What a fun day at Fox News for the Greg Gutfeld Show!
Thank you, for all that you have done to raise awareness about mental illness and addition. Best of luck in your final term as governor. - WCR
"The most useful knowledge that you leave here with today has nothing to do with your major. It’s about how to study, cooperate, listen carefully, think critically and resolve conflicts through reason. Those are the most important skills in the working world, and it’s why colleges have always exposed students to challenging and uncomfortable ideas.
The fact that some university boards and administrations now bow to pressure and shield students from these ideas through “safe spaces,” “code words” and “trigger warnings” is, in my view, a terrible mistake.
The whole purpose of college is to learn how to deal with difficult situations -- not run away from them. A microaggression is exactly that: micro. And one of the most dangerous places on a college campus is a safe space, because it creates the false impression that we can insulate ourselves from those who hold different views.
We can’t do this, and we shouldn’t try -- not in politics or in the workplace. In the global economy, and in a democratic society, an open mind is the most valuable asset you can possess."
On April 25, 2016, Rep. Dan Donovan spoke about “Our Current Political Climate and Political Reform” for Wagner College’s Hugh L. Carey Institute for Government Reform. Donovan, a Republican, was chosen in a special May 2015 election to represent Staten Island and a portion of Brooklyn in the U.S. House of Representatives.
It was a great day listening to and meeting with Congressman Dan Donovan. He is the only Republican Congressman representing a NYC district in Washington, DC. Congressman Donovan is up for re-election in November and we pledged to him that the WCR will take part in his re-election efforts to keep him as a Congressman representing New York's 11th Congressional District.
