Guzman Under Attack: Liberal Students Smear Hispanic Trump Supporter+Michigan State Professor

By Brandon Hall

Michigan State Professor Dr. Joseph Guzman was recently named as a member of Donald Trump's National Hispanic Advisory Committee, as well as a statewide co-chair for Donald Trump's Michigan campaign.

Guzman attended a recent rally outside of Lansing last month where he was able to sit behind Trump and subsequently meet the GOP Presidential candidate-that's where his troubles escalated.

He's used to taking hell for being a Hispanic Republican, but now Guzman is being harassed in the halls of Michigan State, online, and even while out with his family. Evidently, a picture of him behind Trump at the rally has irked some far-left students.

One attack being perpetrated on Guzman is a flyer making its way around campus full of personal attacks, insinuating Guzman is a sub-par professor despite high student approval ratings. The flyer, seen above, features the picture of Guzman behind Trump....

It also claims Guzman supports fascist policies and "unfair and unequal" treatment toward Hispanic migrant workers...

Guzman tells WMP he was disappointed by the tactics. 

"The First Amendment protects freedom of expression and association, particularly in the civic realm," Guzman tells WMP. "It's unfortunate some think that civic activity involves suppressing other individuals right to free speech with lies, smears and disruption."

Don't you just love the "tolerant left?" :p :)

Guzman meets with Trump in New York

Guzman tells WMP he's excited to work with Trump.

"It is an honor to be a part of Mr. Trump's National Hispanic Advisory Committee," Guzman tells WMP. "Although I do not speak for the campaign, I can tell you that we enjoyed an open, earnest and constructive discussion this afternoon. I am energized and more convinced than ever that Donald Trump is the leader to move our nation and all our communities in the right direction."

Guzman supports Donald Trump's immigration plan announced last night in what may have been Trump's best policy address ever.

“Mr. Trump’s plan to strengthen our border and stop illegal immigration is tough and fair for all," Guzman said in a statement.  

"It will enhance security, address unlawful trafficking and keep Americans safe," Guzman continued. "Untold suffering is caused by human and drug trafficking stemming from our uncontrolled border, and it must be stopped.  Mr. Trump’s plan to immediately secure our borders, end sanctuary cities, protect us from violent offenders and enforce current immigration laws is the opposite of Hillary Clinton’s dishonest 100-day amnesty plan and the Democrats' other hollow, unfulfilled promises to Latinos.  Voters have a clear choice in this election: address our border problems in a lasting way that is tough and fair for all, or continue with empty promises that compound human suffering and compromise our safety and security."

  1. A highly educated, courageous man. A family man. A dedicated republican. He has quite a task trying to fish a few survivor’s out of the progressive bog of a student body at any university.

  2. There's plenty of NeverTrumptards on the "Right"(wrong) as well....

  3. Trump is up dramatically with Hispanics and Blacks in most recent poll...

  4. Donald Trump is favored by one-in-four African Americans and one-in-three Latinos, according to a poll conducted by the Boston Herald and Franklin Pierce University.

    The poll of 1,025 likely voters was conducted by RKM Research for Franklin Pierce University and the Boston Herald, from Aug. 31 to Sept. 4.

    Overall, Franklin Pierce gets good marks for its polls and the results are in the same ballpark as many other polls. For example, the poll showed Clinton ahead by three points, 44 percent to 41 percent. Eight percent of respondents back Gary Johnson.

    The poll showed that Trump has a very favorable rating among among 18.4 percent of 105 Hispanics, and 10.5 percent of 101 African Americans. He also scored a “somewhat favorable” rating among 16.4 percent of Hispanics and 13.3 percent of African Americans. Combined, he gets a positive rating from 35 percent of Hispanics and 24 percent of African Americans.

  5. Well then, little kiddies.....don't take his class. The administration should support the professor publicly.

  6. These students did not limit Guzman's free speech. They did not ask the state to fire him for his views.

    Free speech is not freedom from criticism. These students were also simply using their free speech by passing out fliers in a public space.

  7. Thanks so much for this information. I have to let you know I concur on several of the points you make here and others may require some further review, but I can see your viewpoint.
