Students Arrested for Passing Out Constitutions, Recruiting for YAL on Campus

You can be fairly sure the Constitution faces a threatening environment when students are arrested for passing it out on a college campus. This fate befell three conservatives who were recruiting for Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) at Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Michigan.

The alleged evildoers are:

Nathan Berning, a Stanford student and employee of the Leadership Institute; Isaac Edikauskas, vice president of Michigan State YAL; and Shelly Gregoire, president of Kellogg YAL.

At first Drew Hutchinson, KCC’s Manager of Student Life, told them they had to stop trying to engage students in conversation because this could “obstruct the student’s ability to get an education.”

You have to wonder what they mean by education, if learning about the Constitution obstructs it.

Edikauskas then asked a student walking by if he “likes freedom and liberty.” The student replied, “sure” and stopped to talk to Edikauskas.

Hutchinson, however, declared that this action broke the Student Code of Conduct because the student was on their way to “educational places,” and the question, “Do you like freedom and liberty?” was too “provocative.”

He should have asked something that is considered uncontroversial by college educrats, like “Don’t you agree that America is a racist abomination that ought to be destroyed?”

Not long afterward, the campus police arrived. The activists were told they were “violating the school structure,” that getting arrested would put their college careers in jeopardy, and finally that if they didn’t leave they would be dragged off to jail for trespassing — which is what then happened.

This time the thought police are getting some pushback:

The Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal organization that advocates for constitutional rights and religious liberty, has filed a lawsuit against KCC alleging that the actions of administrators and campus police officers violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments.

Kudos to Berning, Edikauskas, and Gregoire for standing their ground.

Ironically, Hutchinson’s Student Life claims that its mission is to “promote a positive college experience by providing programs rooted in diversity, education, leadership, service and social interaction.” Evidently diversity does not apply to thought, and social interaction is frowned upon when it entails students telling each other what their professors are probably not telling them regarding liberty and the meaning of America.

Busted for behaving like real Americans.

    “It the White man’s Constitution and has no business on campus or in America, Burn it with the flag” whined every white feminist and liberal and minority

    What do expect from Cornflake University?

    Missed something here, I’m thinking; reads more appropriately this way: ‘its mission is to “promote a positive college experience by providing programs (approved by Student Life) rooted in diversity, education, leadership, service and social interaction.”

    A Community College is, by definition, public property. How does one “trespass” on public property? I hope the lawsuit pays out big for them and every single cop who participated in the arrests needs to be fired for violating their oath to the Constitution and have their law enforcement credentials revoked. That serves two purposes, one it gives them skin in the game, two, when the Progressives have no enforcers willing to intimidate the public, their plans go out the window. As I have demonstrated on MB many times, most Progressives are sniveling cowards who cannot back up their fascistic dreams themselves.

    May this school and the swine who run it go down in flames and die in poverty.

    Liberals usually love the word “provocative”, it’s one of their favorite buzzwords when trying to portray degeneracy as cool and edgy. I’m surprised this moonbat used one of the “good” liberal words to describe the behavior of a heretic.

    It is long past time for a massive class-action civil rights lawsuit against these jack-booted Leftists.
