the University of Houston Should Learn that "all actions Matter"

When I saw this story at Yid With Lid

If col­leges are indeed train­ing the nation’s future lead­ers, Amer­ica is doomed. On Sun­day, the Daily Caller reported that Rohini Sethi, a stu­dent gov­ern­ment leader at the Uni­ver­sity of Hous­ton, was sus­pended and ordered to diver­sity train­ing for engag­ing in the heinous act of free speech. In this case, the offen­sive speech was a Face­book post that read, “For­get #Black­Lives­Mat­ter; more like AllLivesMatter.”

…con­cern­ing the Uni­ver­sity of Hous­ton the first thing that came to my mind was this.

I can’t believe in an age when there are so many lawyers out of work that a Uni­ver­sity is will­ing to be this stupid.

Granted Uni­ver­si­ties have become rather insu­lar in their thought to the point where actu­ally edu­cat­ing peo­ple on thing that mat­ter has become sec­ondary but I sus­pect this is going to pro­vide an edu­ca­tion to those who attempted to put on this sanction.

Because this type of thing no longer takes place in a vac­uum and because of this, the words of a polit­i­cal leader who I sus­pect is pop­u­lar with the left, namely “GET IN THEIR FACES AND PUNCH BACK TWICE AS HARD:” will come into play here.

First we have the story of the per­se­cu­tion of SGA Vice Pres­i­dent Rohini Sethi on blogs and con­ser­v­a­tive sites and col­lege sites from the Daily caller, the col­lege fix, cam­pus reform, col­lege insur­rec­tion and cam­pus reform and of course Bre­it­bart News

This means that right about now tens of thou­sands of con­ser­v­a­tives on social media are dis­cov­er­ing this story, tweet­ing about this story and get­ting out­raged over it, which will cause Rohini Sethi who meekly sub­mit­ted, likely think­ing that nobody was with her to real­ize she is not alone.

Of course that means that among those upset will be Police Unions around the nation will also be dis­cov­er­ing this who will pass this along to their members.

Even bet­ter this is an issue ready made con­ser­v­a­tives both in Texas and for the Don­ald Trump cam­paign, all he has to do is send out a sin­gle tweet and lit­er­ally tens of mil­lions will be hound­ing the Uni­ver­sity of Texas

And as the Stu­dent Gov­ern­ment had to pass an “ex post facto” rule to allow her to be sanc­tioned and that such sanc­tions involve money this is a law­suit wait­ing to hap­pen. Which likely means that groups like FIRE will get involved and they tend to get results to wit:

Adams State Uni­ver­sity will set­tle a fed­eral law­suit brought by a for­mer ASU pro­fes­sor who says the school vio­lated his free speech and due process rights when it banned him from cam­pus over blog posts crit­i­ciz­ing the university’s pay practices.

The Amer­i­can Civil Lib­er­ties Union of Col­orado announced in a press release yes­ter­day that ASU agreed to rescind the “No Tres­pass Order” it enacted against Danny Ledonne and will pay $100,000 to set­tle the law­suit the ACLU of Col­orado brought on Ledonne’s behalf in February.

Ledonne was banned from cam­pus in Octo­ber 2015, two days after he began blog­ging crit­i­cally about ASU admin­is­tra­tors on his Watch­ing Adams blog. Ledonne taught in the Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion depart­ment and did media pro­duc­tion work for ASU between 2011 and 2015. After ASU didn’t renew his con­tract in the spring of that year, he launched Watch­ing Adams.

Now it’s very pos­si­ble that despite all this poten­tial Rohini Sethi might decide to con­tinue to meekly sub­mit in the hope it all goes away.

But I sub­mit and sug­gest that it’s very likely that she might change her mind and fight and if she does she’ll dis­cover that she has a jug­ger­naut of opin­ion and law behind her and in the end the only power the Uni­ver­sity of Hous­ton has is the hope of keep­ing her intimidated.

Per­son­ally If I ran the Uni­ver­sity of Hous­ton I’d qui­etly reverse myself now before the storm comes and they get an education.

When I saw this story at Yid With Lid

If colleges are indeed training the nation’s future leaders, America is doomed. On Sunday, the Daily Caller reported that Rohini Sethi, a student government leader at the University of Houston, was suspended and ordered to diversity training for engaging in the heinous act of free speech. In this case, the offensive speech was a Facebook post that read, “Forget #BlackLivesMatter; more like AllLivesMatter.”

…concerning the University of Houston the first thing that came to my mind was this.

I can’t believe in an age when there are so many lawyers out of work that a University is willing to be this stupid.

Granted Universities have become rather insular in their thought to the point where actually educating people on thing that matter has become secondary but I suspect this is going to provide an education to those who attempted to put on this sanction.

Because this type of thing no longer takes place in a vacuum and because of this, the words of a political leader who I suspect is popular with the left, namely “GET IN THEIR FACES AND PUNCH BACK TWICE AS HARD:” will come into play here.

First we have the story of the persecution of SGA Vice President Rohini Sethi on blogs and conservative sites and college sites from the Daily caller, the college fix, campus reform, college insurrection and campus reform and of course Breitbart News

This means that right about now tens of thousands of conservatives on social media are discovering this story, tweeting about this story and getting outraged over it, which will cause Rohini Sethi who meekly submitted, likely thinking that nobody was with her to realize she is not alone.

Of course that means that among those upset will be Police Unions around the nation will also be discovering this who will pass this along to their members.

Even better this is an issue ready made conservatives both in Texas and for the Donald Trump campaign, all he has to do is send out a single tweet and literally tens of millions will be hounding the University of Texas

And as the Student Government had to pass an “ex post facto” rule to allow her to be sanctioned and that such sanctions involve money this is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Which likely means that groups like FIRE will get involved and they tend to get results to wit:

Adams State University will settle a federal lawsuit brought by a former ASU professor who says the school violated his free speech and due process rights when it banned him from campus over blog posts criticizing the university’s pay practices.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado announced in a press release yesterday that ASU agreed to rescind the “No Trespass Order” it enacted against Danny Ledonne and will pay $100,000 to settle the lawsuit the ACLU of Colorado brought on Ledonne’s behalf in February.

Ledonne was banned from campus in October 2015, two days after he began blogging critically about ASU administrators on his Watching Adams blog. Ledonne taught in the Mass Communication department and did media production work for ASU between 2011 and 2015. After ASU didn’t renew his contract in the spring of that year, he launched Watching Adams.

Now it’s very possible that despite all this potential Rohini Sethi might decide to continue to meekly submit in the hope it all goes away.

But I submit and suggest that it’s very likely that she might change her mind and fight and if she does she’ll discover that she has a juggernaut of opinion and law behind her and in the end the only power the University of Houston has is the hope of keeping her intimidated.

Personally If I ran the University of Houston I’d quietly reverse myself now before the storm comes and they get an education.


Don’t forget this is the 2nd week of our 6 week tryouts for Da Magnificent Prospect, You can check out their work Monday evening, Tuesday at Noon, All Day Thursday and Saturday at noon.
