On Thursday, May 9, a video surfaced on Twitter of, now former, Turning Point USA students being openly racist. The students are shouting racist slurs, saying, “White power! Fuck the n—–s!”
Turning Point USA swiftly responded to the video with a statement in a tweet:

“As soon as the video in question came to the attention of Turning Point USA staff, we swiftly and permanently removed the student from any current or future involvement with our organization,” said Turning Point USA in their statement.
“His comments were abhorrent, un-American, and disqualifying.” The student in question was removed from TPUSA as soon as it came to the attention of Turning Point staff.
“Tpusa has a zero-tolerance policy for hate, no matter the medium, or how dated the act or comment.”
[WARNING: OFFENSIVE RACIST LANGUAGE AND SWEARING].

The original tweet with the video was shared by an account called “It’s Going Down.” Unfortunately, they have us blocked; so this is a tweet from “The Socialist Party.”
Turning Point USA in no way condones racism. Turning Point USA has denounced racism and is opposed to all hate. Any member of TPUSA that expresses hate or racism will be dealt with in the same fashion.
