Justine Brook Murray is no ordinary beauty pageant contestant. She’s already got some serious political involvement under her belt — including some memories of time spent in the Trump White House.
She knows how to make the most of an opportunity to make a splash and get her message out. She may not have advanced, or even placed in the running at the pageant she was part of this year, but she left with her integrity intact, and she took her shot and got her message out.
There are two parts to the 90-second video, and she makes the most of it. The first part was where she answers a question. The second part is where she gives a brief speech.
Her response to the question about the ‘most important issue her generation is facing today’ was good. But the brief speech she gave after that was fantastic.
Her answer to the question is here, with the text of her speech to follow the video.:
Our generation is experiencing an epidemic of censorship and entitlement. And it’s because our professors and our celebrities are teaching students to be narcissists, to believe any of you that differs from their own is an existential threat. And this is what I experienced in my own campus with censorship to the point that people believe that speech is violence so that they can threaten other people with simply because they disagree with them.
The videos, both from her social media account…

And here is the video clip from Rumble, which will still be around even if she happens to get ‘canceled’.
Here is her ‘social impact pitch’…
Free speech. It is listed first under the Bill of Rights for a reason. Without it, all other liberties crumble. But today, we’re watching free speech get hammered to the ground by the very institutions that that are supposed to promote diversity of thought.
Lemme ask you something. Are you a student? Are you a teacher? Are you a professor? The mere words ‘I’m offended’ are now being used as an excuse to silence students, fire professors and cancel people simply because they do not toe the popular line of thought. And that’s what I experienced. An Orwellian phenomenon dominating my own campus to the point where it got borderline violent. But through the Miss America organization, I will promote Miss New Jersey AS Miss New Jersey by empowering the voices of young women who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in and become a voice to be reckoned with.
A firey young chica like that making a case for the Bill of Rights? If that seems a little unexpected or out of place, it only takes a quick look at her social media, before it suddenly makes perfect sense.
“Operation: Restoring Free Speech in Higher Education” is an initiative I launched as a @MissAmericaNJ candidate to give a voice to students & faculty who are being shut down for their views.

As Kamala Harris enjoys the ‘long weekend,’ I spend it remembering my grandpa, Morris Bedrin.
A Jewish American soldier in WWII, Pop Pop brought home 2 Purple Hearts, awarded for his valor in Europe.
He would’ve turned 101 this weekend. I graduated college wearing his flag. ?? pic.twitter.com/PHXRmJbBRy

It will take energy like that to push back the rot and entropy that has been laying hold of American institutions. But with energy like that in our youth, there is still reason to hold out hope for the nation’s future.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
