Owen Stevens, an education student, has been suspended from mandatory teaching programs for allegedly expressing 'conservative' views on his personal social media account. 

Claiming that Stevens' conservative videos "call into question" his ability to "maintain a classroom environment protecting the mental and emotional well-being of all of [his] students,", State University of New York (SUNY), Geneseo, New York, sent him an email placing him on suspension from his field teaching programs.

According to a copy of Steven's suspension obtained by The Daily Wire, he will remain suspended from participating in in-school field experiences and courses that have field experiences until he completes a "remediation plan" which includes removing the conservative Instagram videos, toning down his social media presence, and attending school-sanctioned training.

"After review of all available materials, I find that, based on your continued public stance and social media presence, you do not consistently demonstrate behaviors required by the Conceptual Framework of the School of Education," the Dean of the School of Education wrote in an email to Stevens. The university claims that Stevens violated the school’s inclusivity doctrine, called the Dignity for All Students Act, which requires teachers to foster “a diverse campus community marked by mutual respect for the unique talents and contributions of each individual."

The Dean also indicated that future teachers are required to support all aspects of homosexuality and gender identity. In an Instagram video, Stevens said, “A man is a man, a woman is a woman. A man is not a woman and a woman is not a man.” The Dean told Stevens that his scientific stance on biology is “in conflict” with the school’s Dignity for All Students Act.

“You continue to maintain, ‘I do not recognize the gender that they claim to be if they are not biologically that gender,’” the Dean added. “This public position is in conflict with the Dignity for All Students Act requiring teachers to maintain a classroom environment protecting the mental and emotional well-being of all students.”



 

But Stevens is not one to budge. According to reports, he refuses to take part in the training. He claims that he has received threats from his peers. "I've received threats and horrible incidents of students who all feel like they are making the world a better place by becoming the woke thought police," Stevens reportedly said. "Overall, I want justice and the right thing to be done."

Who is Owen Stevens?

Stevens is a self-admitted Christian and a conservative. His website JustOwen.com features the American flag with the description "An American, Loving America". The host of his own podcast 'Just Owen', Stevens describes it as "I firmly believe that America is the greatest country ever. My podcast covers culture, politics, and life through the lens of a conservative and Christian man. Liberty, American values, and individuality are the greatest gifts that this country has to offer. Please subscribe to the show! I'd love to have you."

On his Instagram, Stevens' posts are a liberal's nightmare. From conservative Christian views on 'abortion is murder' and 'All Lives Matter' to obviously supporting Trump and spreading fake news, Stevens' Instagram handle has it all.



 

Other videos on his Instagram page include him explaining how Trump "himself called for peace", "Islam is violent", Columbus Day isn't about celebrating every facet of Christopher Columbus' life and arguments against gay marriage. 



 

In his latest video, Stevens shared a video explaining the apparent distinction between white privilege and class privilege. Claiming that "white privilege is a lie that has been told in order to victimised Black people", he said that "there is no white privilege in this country. There is no privilege because of your skin colour... just does not exist".



 

Coming to fake news, Owens shared a post four weeks ago, celebrating the arrest of "Biden campaign worker Raquel Rodriguez, was arrested for voter fraud, and election tampering. She was caught by @project_veritas lying about her actions, and is now facing 20 years in prison for directing people to change their ballots to favor democrats." But, shortly afterwards, Twitter permanently suspended Project Veritas' Twitter account. The conservative activist group played a part in the arrest of a former San Antonio campaign worker. According to reports, "the group published an edited video purporting to show voter fraud in San Antonio. The video shows Raquel Rodriguez, a San Antonio woman who appears to be assisting an elderly voter complete a mail-in ballot and talking about illegal polling tactics."
