University Free Speech Wall Abused By Free Speech

(Before It's News)

Now, it has video cameras to monitor free speech.

The University of Denver (DU) maintains a “free speech wall” for students to use to express themselves in paint—a common feature on college campuses, often taken the form of a wall or a rock. But now, after someone used the wall to paint lyrics from a punk rock song (Minor Threat’s “Guilty of Being White”) and altered a “Black Lives Matter” message, DU has placed restrictions on what the wall may be used for.

Speaking of free speech, even as a CEO your words can have consequences, especially if you explicitly “joke” that you’re going to kill the president-elect with a sniper rifle and challenge the Secret Service to “bring it“.

My recent facebook comment was intended to be a joke, in the context of a larger conversation, and only privately shared as such. Anyone who knows me, knows that I do not engage in this form of rhetoric with any level of seriousness and the comment most certainly does not represent my real personal views in any regard. I apologize if anything that I said was either taken seriously, was offensive, or caused any legitimate concern. Best Regards, Matt Harrigan
