Students Banned from Passing Out Constitutions on Constitution Day at Modesto Junior College - YouTube
It isn’t troubling that a college might have some rules. It is troubling they see the need to insert themselves to stop free speech, to create “free speech zones” and to even restrict the number of people (apparently no more than 2) who can speak/pass out information at any given time.
Via Fox News:
The Constitution guarantees the right to free speech, but don’t try to pass out copies of it at Modesto Junior College in California.
A student at the school who tried to pass out pocket-size pamphlets of the very document that memorializes our rights got shut down on Sept. 17 – a date also known as Constitution Day. Campus authorities told Robert Van Tuinen, who caught the whole thing on videotape, he could only pass out the free documents at a tiny designated spot on campus, and only then if he scheduled it several days in advance.
