Ben Shapiro posterA Catholic university that once welcomed an open communist to campus has told a popular conservative speaker to stay away.

Young America's Foundation wanted to bring writer and commentator Ben Shapiro to private Gonzaga University to speak next spring but the university refused the request, says YAF spokesman Spencer Brown.

"They were more than happy to have Angela Davis speak on their campus," says Brown, "somebody who was two-time presidential candidate for the Communist Party here in the United States."

The university defended its decision to bar Shapiro on the basis that his college appearances often create an unsafe environment due to protesters, and the "potential for inappropriate behavior" could violate Gonzaga's standards of conduct.

Gonzaga, a Jesuit school in Spokane, has about 5,000 undergraduate students. 

Shapiro told a local radio station that the university's reason for keeping him off campus will only encourage people to "make trouble" in order to get their way.

The writer and speaker also mentioned the past appearance of Davis, who he described as an "honest-to-God former terrorist" who was wanted by the FBI.
