Forget Thanksgiving, it may offend someone…. Like a Muslim.
COLLEGE RELOCATES 9/11 MEMORIAL AFTER ‘TRIGGERING, HARMFUL OR HARASSING’ SPEECH POLICY
Southern Methodist University prevented a student group from prominently displaying a 9/11 memorial that featured almost 3,000 American flags to honor those slain, according to a Wednesday report. They banned the memorial on Dallas Hall Lawn so as to“avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing.” Who is offended by American flags and memorials to victims of a major jihad attack on American soil? That’s it. We are done. Cooked like the Ramadan goose.
Southern Methodist University prevented a student group from predominantly displaying a 9/11 memorial that featured almost 3,000 American flags to honor those slain, according to a Wednesday report.
The school blocked its Young Americans for Freedom group from displaying the memorial on Dallas Hall Lawn because of a July 2017 policy that stressed its desire to “avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing” in the location, according to The College Fix.
The college will allow the group to display the memorial at a different location, but the two groups have different opinions concerning why the request for the first location was denied.
“All approved lawn displays, regardless of sponsoring organisation or subject, now will be located on a larger site, MoMac Park,” said SMU in a statement posted Tuesday to Twitter, describing the policy edited in July. “The policy has been further updated to better reflect [the balance between freedom of speech and freedom from coercion/harassment] and to remove the poor wording regarding triggering or harmful messages.”
