  • More Gestapo Tactics

    Why is it always the left trying to curtail speech? What are they afraid of?

    University officials threatened to call the police and disciplinary action against students who were passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution at Southern Oregon University (SOU) last week.

    A group of four students at SOU handed out copies of the Constitution on campus Tuesday while collecting signatures to end the university’s restrictive speech policies, which limit free speech to an area that totals less than one percent of campus. While doing so, the students were approached multiple times by school administrators and campus police who all asked the students to move to a different area of campus...

    ...School administrators threatened to call the police on the students when the group did not leave. One of the students in attendance told Campus Reform that some administrators resorted to “personal attacks” and threatened disciplinary action.

    They're trying to prevent certain people from saying idiotic things like comparing this to the Gestapo, probably.

      In other words they are suppressing the truth.
      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

        No they were trying to prevent students from handing out copies of the Constitution. Oh the horror!

          Maybe because their purpose was disturbing in light of recent events. From the article:

          "The four students are affiliated with Students for Concealed Carry (SCC), a nonpartisan student organization that advocates for concealed carry rights on college campuses."

          Gestapo tactics would involve beating down those students with blunt force. Instead, they experienced mild harassment which they probably interpreted as persecution.

            How in the world do "recent events" or affiliations of students have the result of limiting their right to free speech?

              Whag, you are an intelligent fellow.

              1. The fact that a modicum of hyperbole was used does not invalidate the point in any way.

              2. The Gestapo did not always use maximum tactics, so the hyperbole was indeed mild.

                They were told to move by paranoid people who were probably afraid the students might be packing heat. Certainly, it was an overreaction, but I'd hardly call it limiting free speech.

                Only an equally paranoid idiot would call it "Gestapo tactics."

                  Sorry, I think you are being foolish. Intentionally or just incapable of seeing?

                    I'm capable of seeing that idjuts who want to carry guns on campus deserve whatever pushback they get, however small it might be. In this case it was small: move somewhere else. That's hardly the curtailing of rights and not nearly a Gestapo beatdown.
