Figures. 7th Year Human Rights Major and Gay Activist Rips Down Campus Free Speech Wall …It Was Offensive

File under: “You just can’t make it up.” A liberal 7th year human rights major and gay activist tore down the Carleton University campus “Free Speech Wall” after a few hours.
It was offensive.

The National Post
reported:

Only hours after students installed a “Free Speech Wall” at Carleton University to prove that campus free speech was alive and well, it was torn down by an activist who claimed the wall was an “act of violence,” against the gay community.

“What we wanted to promote was competition of ideas, rather than ‘if I disagree with you I’ve got to censor you,’” said Ian CoKehyeng, founder of Carleton Students for Liberty, the creators of the wall.

Installed on Monday in the Unicentre Galleria, one of campus’ most high-traffic areas, the wall was really more of a 1.2 x 1.8 meter wooden plank wrapped in paper and equipped with felt markers.

In truth, the wall’s only overt references to sexual orientation were pro-gay, such as “QUEERS ARE AWESOME,” “Gay is OK” and “I [Heart] Queers.”

By Tuesday morning the wall was gone, destroyed in an act of “forceful resistance,” by seventh-year human rights student Arun Smith.

Last year Arun Smith ran for campus counselor at Carleton because, as he says, “I am here to create open spaces that are safe spaces.”

But, that was last year. Now he’s ripping down Free Speech Walls.

    With ObamaCare he can stay on his two dads insurance until 26 – but at what point does a 7th year liberal gay activist have to make his own way in the homophobic real world?

    Well yeah, free speech can be offensive. No one has the right to not be offended. The only way to combat offensive free speech is with more free speech!

    It must be the math that makes the Human Rights curriculum so hard, branch cuts and all.

    If you look at my #12 on the last thread, yeah. You understand.

    All comments on either thread should be applicable to either thread, it seems.

    Taq, saw that! There are so many of these ‘stories’ now, it is getting to the point that I just don’t give a rats hat.

    ugh. OK, not really… I do care, I care when injustice is blatantly flaunted, when evil is called good and vise versa… I’m just getting so darn tired of it all.

    Hey, loser, isn’t it time to move out of your parent’s basement, quit playing “student” and grow up by becoming a responsible contributing adult? A 7 year student? Gee, you can just imagine this fairy’s major. Real useful, I’m sure. Seriously, fudge packing ball drainer–say goodbye to the glory hole down at the bus station, take a bath (alone, not with one of your bum buddies, loser), shave that scraggly beard (talk about a bearded woman side show freak), and become a constructive member of society…or at least try to be one.

    Freedom for me, not for Thee.

    these monkey brains have no understanding of what their nominal icons preached:
    “Injustice anywhere is a threat to Justice everywhere”
    “I’m not free unless you are free, and you’re not free unless I am free”
    baboons, apes and gorillas will never grasp that Huxley and Orwell were describing THEM

    I take it back, I should said flea brains, grasshoppers, termites and preying mantis… sorry

    Seriously, make a commitment to read Ann Coulter’s book, “Demonic”.
    I swear to you, the section on the French Revolution will alter your worldview- even if you’re as hard-core as me, it will affect you. Promise.
