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?

    Ain’t abject fascism grand?

  • HaleMn

    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!

  • DITTO my comment from the last thread. Same as it ever was… same as it ever was.

  • dtih

    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.

    Hank Hill used to say “that boy ain’t right” about his son, Bobby! This boy ain’t right.

  • 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.

  • Bubba

    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.

    Liberalism is a mental disease and liberals has zero tolerance on dissent.

  • dmacleo

    friggin professional students.
    sickening.

  • Ghost

    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

  • Ghost

    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.

  • rainmom

    7th year student??? in human rights???
    GEEEZE LOUISE!
    anyone hazard a guess on the amount owed on student loans?

  • Will

    First they try to bash in Lot’s door; now they tear down free speech walls. Why are they so uppity?

  • Pinrose

    The ONLY reason Carlton felt compelled to tear down that wall is because the lovers of Liberty and Freedom did NOT understand that Carlton can speak just as freely with his mouth wired shut lying in a hospital bed as he can on the street corner.

    However, if he was lying in that hospital with his mouth wired shut he might not WANT to go trashing other peoples liberties. Just a thought.

  • platypus

    Representative once called Bawney Fwank a faggot on the House floor. Maybe that’s we need to start doing to these deadbeats – call them EXACTLY what they are.

  • platypus

    That would be Representative Armey. Dang senility is getting annoying. 🙂

    Queers are awesome?I ♥ queers! That’s pro-gay? Hahahahaha! Seems like sarcasm.

  • WillofLa

    Back in my day we would have gone to that queer and beat the living *hit out of him and that would have been the last time he torn down any damn thing.

    See people, sometimes it takes violence to knock sense into some people. Otherwise they just keep thinking that the way they think about stuff is okay. They think it’s okay because they don’t get any opposition to it. And I’m not talking about some polite disagreement either.

    Of course back in my day you didn’t know who was queer because they were all hiding in the closets and wouldn’t dare come out for fear of being beaten half to death.

    But it just goes to show you how these people think that the writting on the freedom wall was the acts of violence, not what that boy did. And do you think he’s becoming a professoinal student? Or is it that he just can’t tear himself away from all that young penis?

  • Cactus

    The first thing that astonished me: Human Rights is a major?

    The second thing that astonished me: He’s a seventh-year student?

    In seven years, I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees and was teaching college.

  • Valerie

    …seventh-year human rights student Arun Smith. …

    Sometimes our colleges serve as warehouses for wealthy families. It’s easier than institutionalizing them, and it keeps them out of the house.

  • i wonder if the gun control politicans will be asking for this guy’s mental profile? more likely they will be praising since he is a member of an organized liberal voting group.

  • American Woman

    The Human Rights Major has no understanding of human rights and is a fascist to the core.

    His university should not grant him the degree, since he tramples on the rights of others. But this is academia, a Liberal Stronghold, so just move along.

    The war has begun. For Americans to stand by silently for fear of being labeled a homophobe, racist etc, we lose. Freedom is gone.

    7th-year Human Rights major: “Do you want fries with that?”

  • John21

    No doubt an devote liberal and Obamabot.

    Seven years in school for “Human Rights” also tell you that he is very far from intelligent, or he is very lazy.
    The liberal attack anything they don’t understand or is not in their agenda, like free speech for them it must be controlled by the them or the state

  • HeavyDee

    A 7th year Human Rights major?? Good Lord, let me save you 6.999 years…WHITEY DID IT!!! There you go, here’s your diploma. Oh, you want a double major in Human Rights & Gender Studies?? Here you go…STRAIGHT WHITEY DID IT!!

    There, just think of how much money I just saved your worthless a$$.

    You’re welcome.

  • Chris W.

    7 years in school with no degree? 7 years in college and you are still dumb enough to equate a piece of paper with an “act of violence”?

    You fail at life, sir.

  • Jerry C

    P.O.S.

  • Seven years as a human rights major and all he has learned is that only his rights are what matter? I hope he is facing vandalism charges.

  • paul52

    I nominate Arun for the ambassador’s position in Libya. Maybe Mali and Algeria are available!
