Meh, I don't care what the Jehovah's witnesses believe on their own time, but get annoyed as all he'll when they come knocking on my door.
I've read the constitution before, would rather just get to class now, mkay?

Both Burch and her friend, the complaint alleges, were at an outdoor event featuring other student groups who were distributing literature from various tables set up for that purpose. Burch claims she left her table and approached other students, and an administrator told her and her friend to get behind their table.

Oh look, another conservative that thinks the rules don't apply to them. Because obviously the message they were trying to get out was so much more important than everyone elses.

You sure do love authority, don't you? Why should there be rules on a public campus about peaceably assembling and distributing pamphlets? Does the notion of that activity offend you so? We have a state school, political speech, and it seems no one was being disruptive. Why does this activity trouble you? Is it because they are conservative?

It ain't exactly Rosa Parks being told to move the back of the bus.  But it is pretty silly.

I'm not particularly happy what this group deems restrictive speech codes, but you might find it interesting.   A site to look up and see if your school or alma mater has speech codes.

Did you RTFA? They weren't being stopped from handing out the Constitution, just to sit at one of the tables like everyone else. And how do you know they were conservative, was the Second Amendment highlighted and the 4th whited out?

I was asking Dinki. He seems to have flexible opinions on this stuff based on things like that. Also, there were other incidents mentioned in the article. Personally, I think "free speech zones" are anathema to the First Amendment, but we have a country full of people with delicate sensibilities who are so open minded that anything that diverts from their open minded views is offensive.

Evidently the girl and her friend weren't getting any attention while sitting at their table, so they decided to take their literature and force it on others.

They knew the rules regarding distribution of their flyers and deliberately broke them. No one was preventing them from disseminating info at their table.

I'm not a conservative, and they should be "allowed" to hand out literature anywhere, especially at a public university, as per the 1st Amendment.

That bothers me less than this idea of "free speech zones" if you want to protest.  Which for this particular instance at this school is explained in a bit more detail here.

The rules were in place for a reason.  If I had to guess
, I'd assume that student groups were restricted to proselytizing from the tables only to maintain some semblance of order. If one group starts to 'work the crowd' then others get it into their heads to do the same thing, and suddenly things are much more chaotic.


So, they could hand out their flyers at the table like everyone else, or leave.  If you can't abide by the rules don't play the game.

I think you're being a little unfair there.  But the point stands:  Where is the line drawn?

And I also wish we knew if they were just handing out copies of the Constitution.  Or if in addition to that they were trying to recruit for the organization (they're Libertarians).  If it was more than handing out copies, then I think they should be following the rules like the other groups.

If free speech is the issue it shouldn't matter what's handed out. The Communist Manifesto should be just as protected as the US Constitution.

Also, the point he makes is valid.  An area was set up for student groups to hand out literature, these students left that area.  The issue wasn't their message, it was the physical location of where and means by which they were spreading it.

And I didn't say that they have the right to disrupt lectures by handing out propaganda, but you took my statement and ran with it, reducing it to the point of absurdity.  Barring students from disrupting class lectures and interfering with learning does not go against the 1st Amendment.  Barring people from getting up and handing out flyers in public areas does go against the 1st Amendment.

Young Americans for Liberty. Sounds like a conservative group to me ('liberty' and 'patriot' are the go-to words that conservatives love to use in their organization names).

These whiny conservatives need to get their asses behind the table like everyone else, hand out their constitutions, and quit their whining.  But what's a conservative without lots of unnecessary whining and the constant feeling of persecution?

Mine's dinged for the discrimination and harassment section of the student handbook.  I read the offending section and it seemed pretty boilerplate to me.  But I suppose it could be broadly interpreted to suppress speech.

But then you skipped the right after that where it says they protested the rules, and then were told they couldn't protest except in the Free Speech Zone.

Now If someone decides that the rules about Free Speech Zone doesn't apply to them, well they're right, it doesn't.  The Constitution guarantees free speech, and case history is pretty clear that these limited Free Speech Zones go too far to restrict it.

Did you RTFA? They weren't being stopped from handing out the Constitution, just to sit at one of the tables like everyone else. And how do you know they were conservative, was the Second Amendment highlighted and the 4th whited out?

Did you RTFA? They were also restricted to a "free speech zone" when they tried to protest. Either one is a restriction on the right to freedom of speech.


There's a reason universities adopted the concept of a Free Speech Zone.

Anybody can go there and pass out whatever. From Neo- nazis passing out swasticas to hellfire and damnation preachers. The reason it's like that is; any group there doesn't disrupt the entire campus.

If it wasn't like that; you'd have to pass 20 or 30 idiots spouting verbal trash everyday. This way; if you want to go listen, you can. If you want to avoid it, you can.

/ the idea is; you have right to free speech, but, I have the right to avoid your cardboard demogogary

// there's a hellfire preacher that inhabits the kansas state university free speech zone from 8-10am, every Saturday for the last 10 years; he ran out of new and interesting material 5 years ago and just rants about Obama, the Illuminati, ravenous sluttitude, the government and EBT cards.

/ I know this because it has become very popular to go and heckle him

Damaniel: ElLoco: MFAWG: Conservative poutrage at it's finest, reported by one of the house organs of Conservative poutrage.

I'm guessing you and several of the others up there didn't read the article? It was a Young Americans for Liberty group.

Young Americans for Liberty. Sounds like a conservative group to me ('liberty' and 'patriot' are the go-to words that conservatives love to use in their organization names).

These whiny conservatives need to get their asses behind the table like everyone else, hand out their constitutions, and quit their whining.  But what's a conservative without lots of unnecessary whining and the constant feeling of persecution?


Once again, liberals against free speech. How quaint.

The Constitution of the United States offends you. Think about what that says about you. Scum.

Colleges use federal money. The government is not supposed to be able to trample the Constitution. So every lawsuit is a triumph over the liberal piss pants ugly folks.
