Marxist College Student Stabs Free Speech Ball

Nothing could be more emblematic of modern college life than a militant snowflake who calls himself “Karl Marx” stabbing a free speech ball. From University of California, San Diego:

Library walk is the epicenter of campus where student organizations advocate for their respective causes, and several students and activist from Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) and the Leadership Institute were peacefully advocating for First Amendment rights … with a large inflatable ball upon which students were invited to write anything they wanted.

The ball-buster started by signing a free speech petition with the name Karl Marx and writing “sic semper tyrannus,” (“thus always to tyrants”) on the ball, then stabbed the ball four times and walked away.

By stabbing the inflatable ball with a pocket knife, he destroyed a platform for free speech not only symbolically but actually.

The very notion of free speech is considered offensive by social justice warriors.

Using the email address he signed on the ball, Brian Pryor of the Leadership Institute tracked “Karl Marx” down to Groundwork Books, unsurprisingly a Marxist bookstore. But another commie “pushed Pryor out the door, allowing the suspected vandal to flee.”

Police caught up with the vandal, but the owner of the ball did not press charges.

Maybe other countries that succumbed to leftism imagined leftists to be nice people, who would allow freedom of speech even if given the power to quash it. Americans won’t have that excuse.

On tips from J and TCS III.

    ‘did not press charges.’ Must be an establishment Republican. Wonder if he also apologized to the Marxist for offending him.

    They got so close with Obama that they could taste the Marxist utopia. Then Hillary blew it for them, even with all the ballot box stuffing. You know how it is to have a lifelong goal merely inches away and have it snatched away…

    “thus always to tyrants”

    The left denying the rights of others while saying they are fighting for those rights.

    I remember the former Soviet Union where, for examples, the communist movement was supported by labor unions until the communists were in power. Then all labor unions were outlawed since “the party” represented the people.

  4. Mr. Freemarket says:

    The goal lives on.

  5. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Or maybe he was threatened. Wouldn’t be the first time.

    “What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.”

    and writing “sic semper tyrannus,”
    the hypocrisy is strong in this one

  8. George Lortz says:

    Hopefully, they’ll start turning on each other, and leave us alone to restore freedom.

  9. ICEvictim says:

    standards are racist. Or something.
