Tyler Russell and Dalton Clodfelter, prominent streamers on cozy.tv, took to Florida State University today to exercise their 1st Amendment right. They set up outside on the quad, seated at a sleek black table with a striking banner reading “#YEisRIGHT. CHANGE MY MIND.” They challenged students to engage in debate concerning Ye’s political and social stances, which have become national news stories in recent months. The session, which was not without drama, was recorded and will be aired on cozy.tv on February 1st.
Last week, the pair got their feet wet at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton with a similar event. It drew serious media attention, including from the ADL and Stop Anti-Semitism, which act as Jewish-supremacist organizations. Coincidentally, just today, Republicans in the Florida State Legislature proposed a bill targeting ‘anti-Semitic’ hate crimes in a callous disregard for the 1st Amendment.
Although things remained peaceful during the previous event, today was far different. While Dalton and Tyler were holding constructive conversations, a growing crowd of leftist and Jewish protesters began to close in around them. Led by the University’s Hillel chapter, which seemingly got a call from their headquarters directing them into action, the horde did everything they could to sabotage the otherwise productive day. They screamed incessantly, hurled insults, and even banged on a drum.
All the while the police stood idly by roughly a block away, doing nothing to protect free speech on the campus. The mob’s unhinged frustration eventually boiled over into physical violence, pushing their way to the table and assaulting them. Luckily, both Dalton and Tyler were uninjured by the manic disruption. Undeterred by the left-wing mob tactics the pair plan to continue their tour, traveling to various colleges and universities in the coming weeks due to popular demand.
In spite of everything, Dalton and Tyler managed to record almost five hours of conversations, capturing the civil and chaotic alike. When reached for comment they reported that “many on the campus surprisingly agreed with Ye’s message of love and free speech with some even going so far as to say that they supported Ye24.”
Their style is reminiscent of Steven Crowder’s “Change My Mind” shtick, except far more compelling and worthwhile. Dalton and Tyler are your average college-aged men, but they are also Christians who see Ye’s Christ-centered worldview as the most important political statement and belief a man can have in America today.
It is important to note that the two are not out preaching a hate-filled message, as the Hillel-directed protestors would have everyone believe. Rather, they are there to spread a message of love and engage in healthy debate. To love someone does not absolve them from criticism. Conversely, to criticize does not require hate. This distinction is evidently lost on their critics.
Dalton and Tyler were not there to incite violence or create a hostile atmosphere, yet the “ADL” and “Stop Anti-Semitism” have been quick to slander this tour as a “vile” and “anti-semitic” stunt. What they do not realize yet is that this is no act; rather, it is the beginning of a serious political development. People are beginning to notice and discuss the issues arising from Jewish influence.
From media to morality, national to international politics, it cannot be denied that there is a disproportionate amount of Jewish power present. This power is made clearly apparent whenever anyone dares to broach this undisputable presence and is shut down and threatened with financial and legal warfare. #YEisRight is only getting started, and with the momentum, it is gaining, a tidal wave of new ideas will wash over college campuses across the nation.

In anticipation of one of the events soon to be possibly occurring in Alabama, someone who presumably attends school there wrote “Ye is right” in chalk on the sidewalk. Russel said on Thursday that the two were ‘under federal investigation’ for the chalk.
“Apparently, we’re being investigated federally cause of the Alabama chalk lmao,” Russell said. “Like it’s chalk that says Ye is Right how is that a federal thing?”
Meanwhile, Republicans in Florida are attempting to pass a bill, HB269, that would make this sort of speech illegal and punishable by law.
Florida State Rep. Mike Caruso and other state legislators introduced the Antisemitism Hate Crime Bill Thursday morning in Tallahassee to define certain antisemitic acts as hate crimes and increase penalties for these hate crimes to the level of a felony. This includes distributing flyers that are considered ‘antisemitic.’
“If we don’t do something now, then soon we will be 1933 Nazi Germany here all over again,” said Caruso. “And I will not stand here and do nothing. I hope I speak for all the legislators, my fellow legislators that enough is enough.”
I noticed those “Free Speech Zones” at my campus 25 years ago. In a burst of youthful idealism, someone spray painted the First Amendment onto the granite marker. That was the only time I’m aware of the space being used.
