  • More Liberal Tolerance!

    This is the second time in recent months we had such a story.

    Two students are suing the University of Hawaii for violating their First Amendment rights after administrator prevented them from distributing copies of the U.S. Constitution — demonstrating a frightening lack of knowledge about the very legal document they were attempting to censor.

    Students Merritt Burch and Anthony Vizzone, members of the Young Americans for Liberty chapter at UH-Hilo, were prevented from handing out copies of the Constitution at a recruitment event in January. A week later, they were again informed by a censorship-minded administrator that their First Amendment-protected activities were in violation of school policy.

    I found this comment interesting:

    Administrators further clarified their level of respect for students’ free speech rights, making comments like, “This isn’t really the ’60s anymore,” and “people can’t really protest like that anymore,” according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.

    The same idiots that run this campus are probably the same idiots that did protest in the past! Good for thee, but not for me....

      Yes, because college campuses are well-known bastions of conservative thought.

        I'm saddened, but not greatly surprised. Our governments are anti-liberty (property rights). The institutions that they support or run perforce also tend to be anti-liberty. Also, the Constitution can't enforce itself.

          So you approve of strictly limiting free speech? Interesting.

            No. Free speech zones are apolitical means to limit criticism by those in power.

              Hmm...I think I spoke too hastily there. Thanks for clarifying.
