One Texas Ex has had enough with corruption and far-left policies at the University of Texas at Austin and is asking Texas taxpayers—including UT alumni and those simply interested in good government—to join him.
Mark Pulliam has deep ties to UT. He is a graduate of both the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas School of Law and his son is a graduate of the McCombs School of Business. He has launched a new Facebook group called “Stop the Insanity at UT” as a place where Texans can share news about the craziness plaguing UT today and organize to fix it.
Pulliam joined Texas Scorecard Radio to talk about the new group.
According to Pulliam, UT is attracting the attention of a number of higher education reform groups, including The College Fix, Campus Reform, and Minding the Campus. They have criticized the university for efforts such as the MasculinUT campaign, a laughable campaign by the university to redefine masculinity.
“A lot of alumni, all they care about is if UT is going to have a good team this year, make it to the bowls, etc.,” said Pulliam. “They assume that the school is the same now as it was when they got their degree, and that’s simply not true.”
Pulliam points the blame at UT President Greg Fenves, a graduate of the University of California at Berkley who succeeded disgraced former President Bill Powers when he was pushed out due to his involvement in a pay-for-play admissions scandal.
“[Fenves] has cleansed the campus of statuary, including one Texas governor who had no connection to the civil war. He’s greatly increased funding for the African and African Diaspora Studies programs, and he recognized Angela Davis when she came to UT to speak at a Black Studies conference,” said Pulliam.
Angela Davis was a communist terrorist who twice ran for Vice President on the communist ticket.
Pulliam is calling on all Texans but particularly Texas alumni to join him. They can educate themselves about the problems plaguing the university by joining and following his Facebook group Stop the Insanity at UT. And ultimately, they must demand their elected officials, Gov. Abbott, Lt. Gov. Patrick, and their state senators and state representatives, hold the UT administration accountable.
