Nabb1: 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?


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?

The more you eat the more you fart: Listen, captain obvious...there shouldnt BE a "free speech zone." We already have one...it's called "the whole damn country" according to the constitution.


I visited my local elementary school unannounced with a bullhorn, passing out little American flags and exhorting the kids to "CELEBRATE FREEDOM"!

The staff and police were not appreciative.

They are fascists who hate America.

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.

Back Alley Proctologist: Those little bastards are lucky a porno professor didn't feel "triggered", then steal their shiat and unleash a self-righteous ass-whoopin' on them. Emotionally-violent pieces of shiat.

Mugato: Thunderpipes: And the occupy morons didn't even know what they were protesting.

Libs will always attempt to silence anything that goes against their beliefs. The Constitution is completely against their beliefs. They simply do not want freedom of speech, because then people will argue against their government use of force. Can't have uppity citizens challenging the Messiah

Jesus are you so full of shiat.


Seemed pretty correct to me. "We believe in freedom of speech unless that speech doesn't go with our worldview; in which case we'll shame you into silence you Nazi-fascist-anti Semitic-cis male-homophobic-bigoted-racist-woman hater."

fusillade762: "This isn't really the '60s anymore"
Really? What's with the qualifier?



It means extra, yet subtle, emphasis on the idea that the year is indeed 2014, and the 1960s (a time when student protests were fashionable) ended over forty years ago, and this sort of behaviour is not acceptable. The speaker could well have preceded the statement, with "you know, this isn't the '60s...", but that would have been more antagonistic and less elegant.


For comparison, see "That's so 1990s", which is used to indicate something is not only a bit out of date, but also hackneyed and trite. The amusing thing about this example is that "so" is not usually a word you would use in this context.

aerojockey: iheartscotch: 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.

That's bull.  When I was in college before these free speech zones were implemented I didn't walk past 20 or 30 idiots every day.  (Well I probably did, but not protesting idiots.)  The idiots I walked past were annoying but very few were disruptive.

Universities adopted free speech zones because:
1. They're authoritarian scumbags, and sometimes there is a viewpoint they won't hesitate to use their powers to try to squash out
2. They are sometimes well-meaning people who are too zealous over certain concepts and cross the line into infringing people's basic rights
3. Probably some naive people thought it would make them less likely to face lawsuits and such since they could keep an eye on the protesters more easily


4.  You can't offend the precious snowflakes, or allow someone to be offended, and the right to not be offended is now apparently a thing, and it trumps the right to free speech.

Even thinking about "Free Speech Zones" makes me want to lodge a formal protest at the "Punch A College Administrator In The Face Zone".
