Senior Jordan Chapman, the Student Association Vice President of Legislative Affairs, argues that YAF should stop its effort against Michelle Obama’s community service commencement challenge.
I am a Republican, although in the eyes of some of my conservative brethren, I am not a very good one. My party has moved more and more to the right in the past few decades, pushing out moderates who once provided a calming influence to the fiery rhetoric of the right. The Young America’s Foundation, or YAF, has been helping to further shift the Republican Party. Never the ones to shy away from a fight, members of GW’s YAF have been known to court controversy with such events as Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week and, more recently, with their response to first lady Michelle Obama’s community service challenge.
