When the student government of Utah Valley State College (w Utah Valley University) heard about Michael Moore's 2004 Slacker Tour, they thought he would be a great speaker that would create the intelligent debate that is the mainstay of college campuses across the U.S. They knew their choice would stir controversy in one of the most conservative counties in America, but they felt they could handle it. They were completely surprised, however, by the tremendous anti-liberal reaction to their choice - a reaction that threatened violence, used bribery, applied political pressure, and ultimately failed to stop the student government, UVSC students, and the community from hearing Michael Moore.
