College Officials Shut Down Student Conservative Group After Seeing Anti-Obama Literature

(Lake Worth, FL) On Tuesday September 7, 2010 at around 11:00am one Palm Beach State College (PBSC) student and two Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) members, state chairman Daniel P. Diaz and state vice chairman Eddie Shaffer, were shut down and had campus police called on them after tabling and recruiting during club rush at the College. The PBSC student, Christina Beattie, had received prior permission from college administrator Olivia Ford-Morris to promote her organization on campus via telephone and email communication.

On the day of club rush, officials approached the group and after seeing information about the organization and its ideals criticizing Barack Obama’s economic policy. Ms. Ford-Morris was visibly disturbed by the material presented, published by the Heritage Foundation, criticizing President Obama’s administration. College officials then called the campus police to assure the group left campus. Ms. Ford-Morris denied having ever talked to Ms. Beattie about giving permission to the organization to be a part of PBSC club rush.

“I was shocked and offended by her dishonesty. She outright denied giving me permission to table at Club Rush simply because she disagreed with my beliefs! The fact is, she was using her administrative power to silence the conservative opposition.” said Christina Beattie.

They probably had their table outside of the designated “free speech zone.”

Sounds like the school fears offending some big Obama connected donors to the school.

FIRE (http://www.thefire.org) is one conservative student activist support organization which addresses itself to such matters. (There may be others.)

Do not criticize the Fuhrer. It goes against their doctrine of enslaving the minds of our youth.

“...Ms. Ford-Morris was visibly disturbed by the material presented, published by the Heritage Foundation...”

####

So the hyphenated, overpaid/underworked, lesbian academic is “visibly disturbed” (gasp/shudder/palpitate), over the lukewarm conservatism of the Heritage Foundation?

Someone’s sheltered ass is in for a stinging education when the real, boots on the ground, deal goes down.

Olivia Ford-Morris

Just another racist black in a position of authority for which they are apparently not qualified, probably gained via affirmative action quotas, given the setting. Using her power to support their co-ethnics while intimidating Whites and conservatives.

Welcome to Obama's America!

The only good thing about this is that we’ve not yet reached the point where the students were summarily executed for blasphemy.

Sounds like this is about as clear cut a case as you will find of illegal activity by those in control.

At first I couldn’t believe any administrator could do this then the thought came to me that this must have been a Black administrator to be so sensitive to criticism of Obama. Sure enough, I scrolled down the page and there was her picture.

It used to be that schools were a place where fair debates were held about hot issues of the day. Instead now they seem to be liberal dirty trick think tanks.

The libs in the school probably can’t even see the irony.

This over-promoted affirmative action administrator is proving their point.

Other groups on campus attended the event and tabled, but had not registered with the student activities coordinator. These groups remained untouched and were allowed to recruit even without permission. The Film Club, one of the groups not authorized to participate in the event, declined to comment for fear of reprisal from college administration.

.... Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak.

Did the student have evidence, like an incoming call from this ladies cell phone? I hope she didn’t delete it. A copy of the outgoing email would be good to provide too.

I don’t doubt the students, they should provide documentation though.

Hit them (college) here it hurts - in the pocketbook. No more donations from alumni. That usually gives them pause to consider the consequences of their actions.

I’ll bet this hyphenated fascist views the college as “her campus”. The fact that the Film Club was afraid of reprisals bears that out...they have seen or heard things in the recent past.

Completely unfit for her job.

A "Mizzz" and a hyphenated last name.

I wonder what the clip-board is used for... Certainly not to keep a list of the approved groups for the event. Only college graduate administrators learn to use clip-boards to hold important information like that.

From what “miss-hyphenated” says in the video this “administrator’s” ability to manage her activities is limited to what she can store in that little brain.

There are other ways to get the message out. She should chalk conservative messages on college sidewalks (if other groups are able to do this), She should also put up conservative postings on advertisement boards on campus as well.

Suing is the key. Forty years ago, I was a YAF state chairman and a law student. To bring the state university to heel on the subject of guaranteeing to students who had paid tuition that their classes would not be disrupted or prevented by antiwar demonstrators at the main campus, all that was necessary was a serious meeting with the university provost and submission to him of the legal briefs that would be filed against the university and copies and its leaders unless the classes were reopened by suppressing the excesses of the antiwar fascisti together with decisions obtained from federal courts throughout the nation.

The litigation should be filed. It should seek money damages from the school and from its decisionmakers and police authorities as individuals and in their professional capacities. It should seek a full range of equitable relief including temporary and permanent injunctions. The students should be prepared to haul the defendants back to court on motions to hold the defendants in contempt each and every time they violate any injunction. Bear in mind that this is a taxpayer-funded government school which has little authority to control the content of speech that administrators do not like. The losing school and administrators also get to pay gargantuan attorneys' fees and costs to the prevailing plaintiffs under relevant federal civil rights laws.

Together with the litigation, wage a public relations campaign pledging any net proceeds to fund conservative campus activity and recruiting on campus. Discredit the school's leaders for their civil rights violations against students who dare disagree with them. Publish quality literature for distribution on the campus in question and all similarly situated campuses in the state to show students what membership in YAF can mean by way of facilitating rebellion against school administrators engaged in suppression of free speech on campus.

The people’s battle against liberal fascism is just beginning.

It may be necessary to disembowel our institutions to gainin a victory for our very freedoms.... freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly......all will now be attacked as opposition to our fascists in government grows
at an exponential rate.

We will have to deal with freedom of speech being treated as a subversive enterprise , allegedly organized to create
the dirorder prohibited by our Homeland Security laws. Laws designed to apprehend terrorists in warrentless searches and wire tapping will be used to prevent the exercise of rights guaranteed by the constitution.

We must not relent, we must carry this battle to the liberal fascists and defeat them, chastising them with the most thorough ridicule we can muster, for if we do not, the issue will later be decided with action set by the example of our founders.

Now is the time to begin to act against liberal fascism in public, as the election approaches in about 42 days.

This conservative university group now has its first lesson in the real politik of liberal fascism, and we must cheer them to continue the fight against their persecutors.
