In response to the article entitled “Fighting liberal graffiti,”
I would like to say that I support the College Republicans 100
percent in their quest to expose “campus insanity”. But, I must
ask, why should we limit ourselves only to censoring
Walking past the student center today, I was outraged to see,
chalked on the sidewalk in bold, bright colors “KSU Chili Dinner,
$5 per person”. Now what about all the people at CSU who dislike
chili? This “graffiti” is obviously anti-chili-disliker and I am
shocked and appalled that the pro-chili movement is being forced
upon all of us – the susceptible and defenseless student body of
CSU. And how about the other chalked graffiti, inviting people to
the CSU Hockey team’s bachelor auction? This is obviously
indicating favor of bachelors over those who are in relationships.
And who exactly does the CSU Hockey team think they are, auctioning
bachelors only and not those connubial folks? I, myself, was
extremely offended at the implied favor of singles…after all,
isn’t everyone worth the same amount of money?
I think my point has been made.
Sarcasm aside, I believe the College Republicans should stop
their complaining. Not only does it prove to those of us with
different political views that the puerile and immature college
republicans truly are the “crybabies of campus”, but it also
indicates a move to suppress freedom of speech. Remember that one?
1st Amendment (see United States Constitution, 1787)? This is,
after all, a democracy.
So before you’re so quick to scream bloody murder and call for
the suppression of free expression, Campus Elephants, please
remember that actions and articles such as “Fighting liberal
graffiti” will not get you sympathy from anyone. The freedom of
being able to communicate views, regardless of the means, is
democracy; attempting to squelch that is called fascism.
