From the Associated Press:
DALLAS — Southern Methodist University shut down a bake sale Wednesday in which cookies were offered for sale at different prices, depending on the buyer's race or gender.
The sale was organized by the Young Conservatives of Texas, who said it was intended as a protest of affirmative action.
A sign said white males had to pay $1 for a cookie. The price was 75 cents for white women, 50 cents for Hispanics and 25 cents for blacks.
Pinko leftists are essentially fascists and hypocrites, as this story underlines. They believe in freedom of speech for me, but not for thee. The authoritarian or fascist nature of this jumps right out at ya, don't it? Then there is the lying hypocrisy.
Speaking of lying liars:
A black student filed a complaint with SMU, saying the sale was offensive. SMU officials said they halted the event after 45 minutes because it created a potentially unsafe situation.
"This was not an issue about free speech," Tim Moore, director of the SMU student center, said in a story for Thursday's edition of The Dallas Morning News. "It was really an issue where we had a hostile environment being created."
Getting shut down had NOTHING to do with the content of the speech, see. It was just a safety hazard to have this hostile environment being created. Mr. President, I smell a big fat commie rat. If it was even a fairly extreme fringe left wing speech or demonstration, I bet they'd have had the governor calling out the National Guard before they would have squelched pinko speech.
Name me even one incident where even the cheesiest anti-war protest, say, was shut down by police. "Conservatives might get mad" is not considered a legitimate reason to limit free speech- nor should it be, nor would any conservative expect it to be. If some right wingers were out destroying a press run from the Ball State Daily News, I'd be back at the ol' alma mater myself with a baseball bat to give the fools an attitude adjustment. If the shoe were on the other foot, however, I'd simply be commiting a "hate crime."
What are they saying here with this "hostile situation" business anyway? Obviously the right wingers were not violent. Were they saying that the blacks or Latinos would be expected to become uncontrollably agitated or violent? What's their beef? They were the ones getting the super-discounted cookies.
