Chestertown, MD, August 28, 2003 — The Washington College Republicans welcome Dan Flynn, executive director of the organization Accuracy in Academia (AIA), who will address the topic “Does the Left Hate America?”, Tuesday, September 9 at 7 p.m. in the College's Hynson Lounge. The event is free and the public is invited to attend.
Accuracy in Academia is an educational and advocacy organization whose goal is the return of academia to its original mission, the search for truth and the free, open discussion of all ideas, not the promotion of particular political or social ideologies. Through speakers, conferences and its monthly publication, Campus Report, AIA exposes cases of classroom indoctrination, campus violations of free speech, and unfair discrimination against students and faculty. As executive director of AIA, Flynn lectures widely and edits Campus Report. His articles on higher education have appeared in The Boston Globe, The Washington Times, The Indianapolis News, The Charlotte Observer, Insight and Human Events. Flynn appears frequently on talk radio and has spoken at 35 college campuses during the past year. His book, Why the Left Hates America: Exposing the Lies That Have Obscured Our Nation's Greatness, is now in its 4th printing. He currently serves in the United States Marine Reserves.
The Washington College Republicans is a group of politically engaged students affiliated with the Maryland Federation of College Republicans and the College Republican National Committee. Over the past few years, its student members have participated with the Bush for President Campaign and have been given opportunities to work on various campaigns and to travel to the Republican National Convention and the Inaugural. The club also works on local events and projects with the Kent County Republican Central Committee and the Kent and Queen Anne's Republican Women's Club.
