Designated Free Speech areas have been in America for more than 6 years

Social justice warriors invented safe spaces  on campus for liberal snowflakes  who can’t handle different opinions but believe it or not, Universities in America have been limiting free speech to restricted zones since at least 2010.

[A grad student] was walking across Clemson’s campus last Thursday when she saw a man [praying]. “…We sat down to pray for a few minutes,” Palange told Young America’s Foundation.

“When we finished, a man from the university approached us and said he could not be praying there because it was not a ‘designated free speech area’… He told him he had to leave.”

Clemson University spokesman told the College Fix they did not ask the man to leave campus or interrupt his prayer, and people are welcome to pray anywhere on campus. But individuals or groups not affiliated with the university have to register certain activities so they can be conducted in appropriate areas.

John Bush in the video below was arrested for protesting peacefully outside the designated free speech zone at a university back in 2010.

 

…America is a “free speech zone.”

Yes, the entire country. Deal with it. You may not like that this man prays. He may not like you don’t pray. Why should there be a winner or loser? Free speech is just that: freedom. You’re free to not like it, not free to ban it.

    For Clemson students and faculty members as well as invited guests, the whole place is a free speech zone. For non-university people, they’re allowed to be there but displaying signs or religious sentiment requires formal permission. This person was an uninvited visitor with a sign inviting people to pray with him. If he’d asked, possibly it would have been permitted. Or not. Meanwhile the administrator was courteously doing his job.

    IN the case of John Bush, the Freedom of Speech Zone was established by the US Secret Service as President Obama was present on campus. Hecklers are removed from Trump rallies. If Trump becomes president the Secret Service will operate the same security protocols.

    Freedom of Speech or as it says in their constitution, the right to peaceable assembly is in their First amendment, but its the same as for the 2nd amendment right to bear arms, it is routinely heavily prescribed. And doing so is legal for government bodies like this public university.
    To say the ‘whole country is a free speech zone’ has never and will never occur.
