Arizona U student challenges the Youse Shut UP!! Zone

(The majority of her U at most times.)

From Daily Signal:

A student at an Arizona community college is challenging her school’s so-called “speech zone,” arguing the policy “severely limited” her right to free speech and due process.

Brittany Mirelez, a freshman at Paradise Valley Community College in Maricopa County, Ariz., was kicked out of the designated speech zone in October for failing to obtain permission to use the space.

Mirelez had set up a table to converse with students about a group she is trying to start called the Young Americans for Liberty. The group, which has branches nationwide, advocates for limited government and liberty-minded candidates.

Originally, Mirelez said a Student Life official granted her permission, but shortly after setting up her table, a different official told her she had to leave because she didn’t get approval to use the space 48 hours in advance. More.

Reality check: The world of the First Amendment has been a world where liberty meant the freedom to hold an unpopular opinion safely, not the right to shout profanity in public.

Most of her fellow students are principally interested in freedoms of the latter sort. Current officeholders are only too happy to give them the latter but not the former—which would be wasted on them anyway at this point.

Britanny would be an easy hire, and if this all washes up, she should leave Asshat U and look at No Daycare U.

Like, if one HAS a future other than glorified welfare…

Note: US First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

  • Good for her.

    Shouting profanity in public is not the same as yelling “fire” in a crowded theater. Sorry, that’s protected speech, toots.
    You are just like the prohibition supporting anti-constitutionists who support federal drug laws.

      Yes it is, Holmes was not fully correct.

          Shouting profanity in a public place is not necessarily protected if it amounts only to disturbing the peace. Playing a kazoo into a loudspeaker might amount to the same thing.

          Many today would be far more willing to protect merely creating a disturbance than offering a political view that is an alternative to the progressive one That was the intended point Sorry if you missed it.
