What the hell is going on in America? Apparently this is some kind of ‘free speech’ – or so the college deems, anyway. To hell with that, I say. Punish these little criminals and get these statues cleaned up, like yesterday:
Students from Chapman University in Orange County, California, defaced the busts of several notable figures, including U.S. President Ronald Reagan, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and author Ayn Rand.
The statues were covered in yellow caution tape, with signs posted on each figure indicating that they were under “student review” for various charges.
The sign below our nation’s 40th President reads:
“RONALD REAGAN is under student review due to RACISM, CLASSISM, and HOMOPHOBIA.”
Don’t worry, they didn’t forget any of these guys, either:
Despite the defacement, school officials cited freedom of expression in a statement to Campus Reform, indicating that the students would not be punished:
“All Chapman University students and faculty are encouraged to speak their minds and express their personal opinions, both privately and in public forums, on any topics they wish. Sometimes those topics may not necessarily reflect the beliefs and viewpoints of the institution or its leaders, but the University strongly supports the right of free expression for members of our learning community and welcomes the opportunity to engage in respectful dialogue.”
“Because the statues in question were not vandalized, but simply have signage placed on them – and although University policy states that all signage on campus must be authorized – the University administration acknowledges the students’ right to express their views and will allow the signage to remain until the end of the week, when staff typically remove unauthorized or outdated signage on campus.”
Or how about you get campus police and lock up these snot nosed criminal wannabees? Let them get away with self-entitlement and petty crimes now, and I can guarantee you will not like the America that you end up living in when it’s time to retire.
