Police To Students: Your ‘Free Speech’ Is Scaring Other Students

Published

(Via Zerohedge)

In yet another test of the U.S. Constitution’s protected freedom of speech, the Constitution Club at Southern Illinois University (SIU) inflated a giant beach ball and asked students to come by, grab a sharpie, and write whatever they felt like writing on the ball.

The students’ free speech rights exercise was quickly interrupted by campus police who informed the club members they had received complaints about the ball and the group would need to stop their activities.

According to Campus Reform, the reason SIU chose to attempt to stop the demonstration was that campus police said the students did not go through the proper channels to be able to hold the demonstration:

Executive Director of University Marketing and Communications Doug McIlhagga telling Campus Reform that the activists were in violation of the university’s policy “governing freedom of expression and demonstration activities.”

“The demonstrators didn’t follow the proper University procedure for a public forum by going through the Vice Chancellor of Administration’s Office for approval,” he elaborated. “We normally get the ‘Request For Use Of The Designated Public Forum’ form. However in this particular instance, we did not.”

Ultimately, the group was allowed to continue with their free speech demonstration but not before having to make contact with campus police to explain their actions. The SIU police did not appear to want to interrupt what the group was doing but were under marching orders from their superiors.

“This is not considered like a public place,” one campus police officer told the students. “Right now, we’re going to have to put the ball away … it’s freaking a lot of people out … people are reporting that they’re scared of the beach ball, and what’s going on here.”

At issue is whether or not a university campus, a public facility, is, in fact, private property or public property. If it is public property, then the group should not be compelled to go through any channels of approval. Instead, the group is subjected to what some consider an arbitrary process, which attempts to secure the outside approval of a third party (in this case, the Director of University Marketing and Communications) to get the blessing for what the Constitution already allows.

It is not the first time a group on campus has been accosted by police for attempting to assert their free speech rights. As TFTP reported last January, several college students were arrested for passing out pocket-sized copies of the U.S. Constitution and signing students up for membership in their conservative student organization. The incident occurred at Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Michigan, and involved members of Young Americans for Liberty who were arrested on Sept. 20, 2015, and charged with trespassing.

Brandon Withers and Michelle Gregoire were arrested and spent nearly 7 hours in jail for their unapproved distribution of the U.S. Constitution and for allegedly attempting to recruit others to their club. The “offenses” resulted in demands the students remove themselves from campus property. The students refused to leave and were arrested by campus police and charged with trespassing.

According to The Washington Times, Scottsdale, Arizona-based “Alliance Defending Freedom,” a nonprofit legal organization that “advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith,” filed a lawsuit on their behalf Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan. Senior ADF counsel Casey Mattox issued a statement wherein ADF claims their clients’ constitutional rights supersede any unlawful school rules denying them such freedoms.

Kellogg Community College had established several rules regarding the exercise of free speech and has established a free speech zone. Additionally, the distribution of materials, according to the college, must be approved first by the department known as Student Life. In other words, the exercise of students’ first amendment rights according to the U.S. Constitution is regulated by the public school’s Student Life department. And the school defines free speech as “solicitation,” another activity which must be pre-approved.

The Ugly Truth About Dating Transgender Women

Published

on

Spoiler: They’re the most superficial, narcissistic, arrogant, and boring people on the planet.

By Chad

One night at a bar in Las Vegas, I was approached by the most gorgeous blonde bombshell. After exchanging pleasantries, dancing, and a few drinks, I decided to go home with her. Before getting down to business, “Sarah” (we will call her) dropped the bomb: she was trans.

Now I didn’t freak out or anything. I like to think I’m a pretty open guy. I’ve “dated” hundreds of women (Believe it or not, virgin reader, maybe even a thousand). I would be secure enough in my masculinity to bag a trap. However, it’s not for me and I decided to end the night there. Respectfully (JK I plowed that boy p*$$¥). We talked for a while to disarm the grenade that just went off and I thanked her for a wonderful evening and returned home…

…But it got me thinking: what is this world like? No one in my circle of friends has ever dated one. There are no believable articles or blogs on the subject. They all reek of propaganda. If you read about it online, it’s almost always described as “stunning and brave.” The media will actually have you believe you’re “bigoted” if you don’t want to!!!

To “prove I was no bigot” [JK], I decided to start a social experiment of my own. What I discovered was somewhat shocking to say the least.

Now my first encounter with “Sarah” ended amicably enough. She was visibly irradiated though, and tried several times to coax me into sleeping with her after saying no. Guess she’d never been turned down before. “It’ll be our secret.” That said, we left on decent terms. The next night, I ventured out to a local LGBT spot to try my luck for the first control.

Superficial Lisa

“Lisa” was a 23 year old fair-looking white trans girl . Most men wouldn’t be able to tell (I could). I started chatting her up in the bar, and after a brief conversation, we exchanged numbers. My goal was not to sleep with them, only simulate the dating experience as much as possible. For the next few days, Lisa would text about nothing but being a trans person. Even when I would try to change the subject, conversations often ended with her comparing herself to “biological” women, always framed as being better than. Examples below:

She went on and on and on…

When Lisa wasn’t commenting on how trans she was, she would comment on MY appearance. Context: I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I’m extremely fit (regularly work out; never miss leg day, bro.)

Omg I’ve been dreaming about your body! You look like you could f*** while holding me!  You need to shave your face tho, I hate scratchy beards.

On our first, and last, date at a local eatery, she commented on every article of clothing I was wearing.

You have a great body, why are you hiding it? You should wear more tanks.

Again, if I tried to steer the conversation any other direction, it would immediately fall back on either my appearance or how she is trans. I drove her home, and told her this would conclude our seeing each other, to her dismay. She was pretty vitriolic about it after, attacking the same facial features she complimented merely minutes ago.

You look like a juice-head. Muscles gross me out. I bet you have no dick.

I laughed it off and even apologized for disappointing her, then drove off. I found this to be a reoccurring theme. Even in short conversations with other trans girls at bars, they just can not help but talk about themselves being trans, and if not that, then it goes straight to your appearance. Absolutely narcissistic and self absorbed.

Arrogant Jen

Not being able to stomach much more of the gay bars, I decided to head online. That’s where I met possibly the worst of them all. “Jen” was a fiery Hispanic girl I matched with on Tinder. Now she was really passable. I would have been fooled had I not been seeking people like her out. She messaged me shortly after matching. I even found myself somewhat wondering how she was still single… until I didn’t.

Like the others, she drowned on about herself, but I decided to push further for the physical date. She also wrote me a list of her essentials requirements for men she can date. After sending a few pictures, I passed her “test.” I won’t bore you with the details but, suffice it to say, I’ve been with Insta-thots that were less picky.

The following day, she pushed back our 7:00 date to 7:30, which I obliged. I drove out to her place. Since I wasn’t familiar with the area, I was literally 60 seconds late (Important detail, keep this in mind). I text’d Jen to let her know I arrived. What ensued was the most ridiculous interaction I’ve ever had to date:

To be honest, this was a relief. I was shelling out good cash and time at this point on my experiment. I received 50 text messages about why I was an “asshole” and left after 2 or 3 minutes trying to calm her down.

A week later, she asked me out again, but I declined, telling her she should see someone about her obvious issues…

The Ugly Truth

You’re better off dating real women, fellas. I could have pushed many of these “women” further into dating and such, but the barrage of useless conversation, literal mental illness, and suffering is just not worth it. Keep in mind that this is my experience with ones who wanted to sleep with me. I can’t imagine what it would be like for a guy half my stature who was actually into this?

I’m sure there are at least a few trans women that aren’t complete utter trash. I would find them to be the exception, not the rule. In total, I picked up 15 traps, and 14 of them were absolute messes.

Some of the girls I encountered didn’t mind telling me about how they used to pimp themselves for cash to pay for surgery. I think this probably more well known but it’s worth mentioning here. Who knows how many of them have done this…

TL;DR unless you have a high tolerance for bullshit and love penis, date regular women. It’s actually easier!!!

OCD: Conservatives Suffer From Ocasio-Cortez Disorder

Published

on

What was the #1 mistake the media made in the 2016 election?

In the past, the mainstream media ignored anti-establishment candidates it disliked.  Slowly, but surely, their poll numbers would fall.  Yet they couldn’t help themselves when Donald Trump came on the scene in 2015… and they covered him all the way to victory.

Now, Conservatives begin to make the same mistake:  memeing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez like the world is going to end in 12 years.  It would be fine if AOC memes weren’t so juvenile, shit-tier, & flat out not funny.

They fall into a category called “Boomer memes.” It’s a term that pokes fun at the “2nd Greatest Generation” for not being particularly tech savvy, but it’s used here to describe low quality content:  Think fuzzy/irrelevant pictures, generic fonts, usually too much text, and toilet humor.  They might as well call her a “poo-poo” head, because they aren’t changing minds.

Note: The “Boomer” meme

You cannot scroll down your Facebook timeline without seeing her face on one of these perversions posing as “memes.”

Like an ex-girlfriend, she wants your attention.  She wants you to call her back.  She wants you to hate on her.  It fuels her.  You’re essentially working public relations for the DSA Party when you continue to post about her.

“I need you to hate/So I can use you for your energy”

You may think you’re doing some kind of public service calling out her stupidity.  In reality, you’re pushing the disenfranchised right into her arms.   Like an ex-girlfirend, the best thing you can do is be indifferent to her existence.  The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference… and drives women crazy.    Hanging on her every word and blunder is what the media did to Trump, and it skyrocketed his campaign at every turn.  Think “Grab her by the p*ssy.”

Stop memeing Cortez unless you’re going to do it intelligently.

And if you think she can’t be president, you weren’t paying attention during 2016.

P.S.  Notice I didn’t use her image once.  I did this even though I knew posting it would have given me 100s, if not 1000s of likes.  Don’t be a slave to AOC.  She IS your boss if you meme her.  You don’t work for her.  And neither do we.
