On Tuesday September 7, 2010 at around 11:00am one Palm Beach State College (PBSC) student and two Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) members, state chairman Daniel P. Diaz and state vice chairman Eddie Shaffer, were shut down and had campus police called on them after tabling and recruiting during club rush at the College. The PBSC student, Christina Beattie, had received prior permission from college administrator Olivia Ford-Morris to promote her organization on campus via telephone and email communication.

On the day of club rush, officials approached the group and after seeing information about the organization and its ideals criticizing Barack Obama’s economic policy. Ms. Ford-Morris was visibly disturbed by the material presented, published by the Heritage Foundation, criticizing President Obama’s administration. College officials then called the campus police to assure the group left campus. Ms. Ford-Morris denied having ever talked to Ms. Beattie about giving permission to the organization to be a part of PBSC club rush.


Apparently some groups who had not registered with this same coordinator were allowed to remain. But if you dare to disagree with Obama’s economic policy your out of luck.

Daniel P. Diaz commented that “It is extremely frustrating that when a conservative organization like YAF tries to start a chapter on a public university, administrators who proclaim that colleges are the market place of ideas proceed to be intolerant and censor views contrary to the liberal ideology.”

Unbelievable bias. The college campuses of today are indeed intolerant echo-chambers.

Drop them a polite note letting them know what you think about their policy to shut down opposing views.

UPDATE

Tigercap has a screenshot of Olivia’s facebook, check out her likes:

I know…shocking!

She can have her views and her politics. But preventing one side from voicing their views and politics, in a college campus of all places, is wrong.

    I’m beginning to notice a trend as I watch the other videos from this group, These kids go to schools without permission and then claim infringement upon their rights when asked to leave…
    I know for a fact that its takes alot more that an e-mail to start a club, so i’m not buying it.
    I don’t even believe they are students at this school considering they have also tried this same stunt at USF and FAU.
    Its a good SET UP especially when the head of Student Services is Black. However, in order to rightfully call foul play you should know your legal rights and yours was not broken here. I’m all for freedom of speech but what I hate is the spread of hate & that’s exactly what you do when you do things like this.
