Kari Lake released a statement earlier this week after it was reported that Arizona State University fired employees and harassed them over a recent event at the school with conservative panelists.

In the press release, Lake slams Arizona State University President Michael Crow for “bowing to the woke mob” and turning ASU “into a woke indoctrination center.”

“This is really an attempt to purge conservative thought from ASU’s campus,” said Lake.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Far-left Arizona State University’s Barrett Honors College and ASU Gammage Theater fired two faculty members for organizing an event with conservative speakers, Charlie Kirk, Dennis Prager, and Robert Kiyosaki, in February.

Before the event, 37+ members of the radical left faculty at the Barrett Honors College organized a petition against the event, slandering speakers as “white nationalist provocateurs.” Barrett Honors College Dean Tara Williams encouraged this behavior and began censoring marketing for the “Health, Wealth and Happiness” event with conservative speakers. She then promoted an opposition event organized by rogue Barrett Faculty led by Professor April Miller.

Ann Atkinson, executive director of the T.W. Lewis Center for Personal Development, recently published an OP-ED titled, “I Paid for Free Speech at Arizona State,” where she details ASU’s decision to fire her “for organizing an event featuring Charlie Kirk and Dennis Prager.”

In an interview with Atkinson, she told The Gateway Pundit about the threats and harassment she faced from leftist faculty members and ASU leadership before she was ultimately fired for organizing the event at the school’s top personal development center. Dean Tara Williams is also shutting down the T.W. Lewis Center for Personal Development, likely to extinguish conservative thought on campus. “The Barrett culture changed” when ASU hired Williams as the college’s new Dean last August, Atkinson explained.

Atkinson said she was also “asked to defend the question, ‘What is to say the Lewis Center would not invite the KKK as a future speaker? Because some of the values of the speakers (referring to Prager, Kirk, and Kiyosaki) are similar to the KKK.’”

Robert Kiyosaki, a Japanese Marine Corps Veteran, responded to these claims by leftist so-called educators, saying, “I don’t even know what the values of the KKK are. I value freedom of speech with malice towards none. All we were doing was educating and teaching.”
