“Very Offensive to Texas A&M Aggies Who Believe in Conservative Values”

By Donna Garner

6.23.17

 

[COMMENTS FROM DONNA GARNER:  The “expense report violation” that eventually led to homosexual Bobby Brooks being elected Texas A&M’s student body president (49% of the vote) occurred because the candidate who actually received the most votes (Robert McIntosh – 51%) failed to report on his campaign expense report that glow sticks to get students’ attention had been contributed to his campaign. (3.23.17 – Texas Tribune — https://www.texastribune.org/2017/03/23/how-texas-m-student-election-got-attention-rick-perry/ )

Texas A&M University, College Station, had 66,426 students enrolled for the 2016 – 2017 school year; but only 12,000 of them chose to vote.

 

Now Bobby Brooks, A&M’s homosexual president, is leading other LGBTQ Aggies in the Houston LGBTQ parade. 

 

All that gay Bobby Brooks had to do to win the student body presidency was to get 14 LGBTQ people with “perceived” intimidation complaints to file those on the election website. What a template for success in future elections  – just get enough LGBTQ people to yell loud enough, and everyone else who supports “diversity” will cave!  

 

The problem is that ethnic and racial diversity are inborn and cannot be changed.  Homosexuality is a chosen lifestyle, and those trapped in that lifestyle can choose to change.  Putting the LGBTQ agenda under the same umbrella as “diversity” is factually incorrect and is a tactic the LGBTQ community adopted years ago because people who lacked courage were afraid to counter it. Will our nation sit idly by and allow the LGBTQ agenda to corrupt our nation completely?

Before the student-led panel at Texas A&M made its election night ruling in February, the final vote count had McIntosh with 51 percent compared to his closest opponent, Brooks at 49 percent, according to SGA documents. The difference between the two was 262 ballots in the election that drew more than 12,100 students to vote.

A&M’s student newspaper, The Battalion, reported in February that McIntosh had been disqualified from the race on election night after 14 incidents of voter intimidation were filed against him by students on the university’s election website. The following week, the SGA’s Judicial Court overturned the initial disqualification, dropping the accusations of voter intimidation, but upheld a second charge involving an expense report violation…

“A&M pride on display as Aggies march in Houston LGBT event for first time”

Excerpts from this article:

 

For the first time, Texas A&M University representatives will participate in the Pride Houston parade that celebrates the LGBT community.

Those representing A&M at the Saturday event include Karan Watson, outgoing provost and executive vice president, Student Body President Bobby Brooks and members of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Resource Center.

The initiative for A&M’s presence at the event started with Chad Mandala, the program coordinator of the resource center, when he came to A&M in March 2016.

“The conversation started really around having A&M participate in an event that is a recruitment tool,” Mandala said. “As a means of connecting with current and former students, faculty and staff and a way of really building community that a number of institutions from the state participate in.”

Mandala said he felt it was time for A&M to join other schools that have been participating in pride events across the state. Rice University and the University of Houston have taken part in the Houston event.

A&M participated in the festival portion at last year’s event. The resource center hosted a booth that provided information about A&M and its LGBT organizations. Mandala said the effort drew support from former students and hopeful future Aggies who attended.

After the positive feedback, Mandala said he went to administrators in the Division of Student Affairs hoping to expand A&M’s presence. The result was A&M registering to march in the 2017 parade. Daniel J. Pugh Sr., vice president for student affairs, said he is happy with the resource center’s efforts.

“Our division is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive campus community to deepen the understanding and individual application of the Aggie core values,” Pugh said via email. “And our GLBT Resource Center is a significant part of this effort. The GLBT Resource Center has led in our community and we are so pleased they are doing so in Houston.”

…Mandala said other positive signs include A&M no longer being included in The Princeton Review’s list of “LGBTQ-unfriendly” colleges, and the election of Brooks, who is A&M’s first openly gay student body president.

Brooks was voted into office in a controversial February election, after the disqualification of fellow candidate Robert McIntosh for failing to file campaign expense reports. Brooks said his transition into the new role has been a smooth one.

Mandala reached out to Brooks last month, requesting his presence at Pride Houston. Brooks agreed and has helped recruit LGBT students by reaching out to them personally, encouraging them to march with A&M…

“Perry questions election of first openly gay Texas A&M student president”

By STEVE KUHLMANN steve.kuhlmann@theeagle.com 

 

…Former Texas Gov. Perry said he was “deeply troubled by the conduct of A&M’s administration and Student Government Association” in an op-ed published online Wednesday by the Houston Chronicle following the disqualification of candidate Robert McIntosh.

 

Before the student-led panel at Texas A&M made its election night ruling in February, the final vote count had McIntosh with 51 percent compared to his closest opponent, Bobby Brooks at 49 percent, according to SGA documents. The difference between the two was 262 ballots in the election that drew more than 12,100 students to vote in that race.  

 

A&M’s student newspaper, The Battalion, reported in February that McIntosh had been disqualified from the race on election night after 14 incidents of voter intimidation were filed against him by students on the university’s election website. The following week, the SGA’s Judicial Court overturned the initial disqualification, dropping the accusations of voter intimidation, but upheld a second charge involving an expense report violation. 

 

…Perry went on to question whether punitive action would have been taken against Brooks had the roles been reversed.

 

“We all know that the administration, the SGA and student body would not have permitted such a thing to happen,” Perry wrote. “The outcome would have been different if the victim was different.”

 

The administration is not involved in the student-run election process…
