The Constitution as Crime

     You’d think that if anything were Constitutional, it’d be the Constitution. Not at Kellogg Community College it isn’t!

“Kellogg Community College is being sued after campus police arrested three conservative activists and college students while they were handing out pocket Constitutions and signing students up for a conservative student organization.

“As detailed in video footage[…] a KCC student and two fellow conservative activists spent two to three hours handing out Constitutions and recruiting for a Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) chapter on campus in September before they were accosted by administrators and ultimately arrested for trespassing.”

     The excuse? Free speech violates free speech or something:

“They were first stopped by Drew Hutchinson, the manager of Student Life at KCC, who told them they couldn’t approach students outside or engage them in conversation because it could ‘obstruct the student’s ability to get an education.’

“‘We ask that you don’t do it in the middle of everything, and part of that is because if we obstruct the student’s ability to get an education then it kind of becomes counterintuitive to the whole, um, right to speak, kind of Second Amendment rights [sic],’ Hutchinson explained, intending to cite the First Amendment.”

     Funny how the high lords of academia don’t complain as hard about actual violent riots like those seen at U.C. Berkeley and NYU.
