Clemson evicts man for praying outside ‘free speech zone’

Image result for free speech zoneClemson University administrator Shawn Jones demanded that a local man who was praying with students leave campus last Thursday because he was not in a designated “free speech zone.”

Jones, Clemson’s assistant director for client services, cited the Clemson University Facility Usage Policy as justification for removing Robbie Roberts for praying while sitting next to a sign with the word “prayer” on it. The usage policy states that non-students are restricted to certain campus areas for their full right to free speech.

“I did not think it was legal for them to remove a non-student from campus simply for communicating with students.”    

In a Young America’s Foundation (YAF) videodocumenting the incident, Jones tells graduate student Kyra Palange, who recorded the confrontation after praying with Roberts, that non-students are only permitted to exercise their liberties in designated "free speech zones."

“This is not a designated free speech area,” Jones informed them.

“You mean there are free speech areas on campus and that the entire campus is not a free speech area?” Palange then asked.

VOTE TRUMP

And the liberal/socialist idiot press wonders why Donald Trump is doing so well in the face of their all out attacks on him ! Vote Donald Trump and bring back US Constitutional law . 

You mean there are free speech areas on campus and that the entire campus is not a free speech area?” Palange then asked."

Dah... YES!  Most Universities and Colleges today are bastions of Political Correctness.  Free speech has been banned from just about everywhere on or near our cultural institutions and Universities.  Instead we have managed speech, and political correctness has become the driving force behind censorship of certain aspects of political and cultural speech.  George

Orwell's 1984 maybe 32 years late in materializing but what it lacked in timing it certainly made up in its prophetic portrayal of the Orwellian Dystopia.  Double Speak even has its own University Dictionary... vocabulary today.  See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doublespeak

Why do students attend college? To learn by communicating with others who have differing opinions, by expanding horizons, by growing, by maturing...oh wait, that was when I was in college- many years ago. Now, they need their security blankets in their safe zones where no sidewalk chalk is allowed. Is it any wonder we have mindless idiots voting who have no concept of history, of values, of ethics? 

Vote to Makle America SAFE and Great Again - TRUMP/Pence!!!

Excuse me, "Mr." Jones, but here in the U.S.A., it is legal for us to pray anywhere that we wish to pray.  The 1st amendment to our constitution has no mention of "restricted" zones.

The usage policy states that non-students are restricted to certain campus areas for their full right to free speech.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

I hate to say this but the Constitution only applies when it suits their purpose and not when it goes against them.  It started back with the Sedition Act somewhere around 1794.  I am not sure of the date.  As the government has grown, the Constitution has been shoved in the back more and more.  Vote for Hillary and it will be buried completely.  Vote for Trump and it will stay around a while longer and maybe come back out to the front where it belongs.

It's time for Christians to stand up to this BS.  If the Muslims can block traffic by praying in the streets, surely other religions can be afforded the same courtesy.  I thought Clemson was in the Bible Belt.  

Clemson is in South Carolina... once a very staunch Christian State...

But such activities are UN-ISLAMIC!  

We really have to get rid of those who support Islam in this Country. It will soon be another stronghold for Islam, and I don't want to see that. 

Clemson has joined the too long list of liberal toilets.

Why are there not lawsuits out the ying-yang over these anti-amendment "free speech zones"?  Course you know damn well had it been a muslim prayer............nothing would be said.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
