Broke the Koch Brothers' Takeover of America
What You Should Know / June 5, 2011 -- Multiple students have charged that the group has stifled their dissident comments in order to avoid engaging in a debate about the real issues relating to the Koch donation. "The so-called 'Students for Diversity in Education' have continuously censored any opinions differing from their groups' pro-Koch line," said Patrick Shepherd, an FSU alumus. "Understandably, many students involved with YAL and ideologically similar groups on campus support their 'strategic partners' [as Koch-funded groups are referred to on their website] in this scandal. It is disconcerting though, to see a group flagrantly deny open discourse on the issue." Shepherd has not been the only student to criticize the fact that many of the students affiliated with the group are also connected to Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), a libertarian campus RSO. YAL, a national organization formed in 2008 as an offshoot of Students for Ron Paul, lists four Koch-funded organizations as strategic partners on their official website, including the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.
