Shortly before finishing, William Thatcher, an assistant professor of public health, approached the group and said they had to keep their messages to the university's free speech area. Thatcher then said he would be back to remove the messages. He returned with a group of students and they attempted to remove the group's messages. "You had permission to put it down; I have permission to get rid of it," he says in the video.Thatcher erased the pro-life messages and his coven of young demons wrote some pro-death messages.
In a statement to CNN, Joseph Castro, president of California State University, Fresno, said the school's policy on free speech is clear. "Free speech on campus is not limited to a 'free speech zone' or any other narrowly defined area," he said. "Those disagreeing with the students' message have a right to their own speech, but they do not have the right to erase or stifle someone else's speech under the guise of their own right to free speech."Bravo to the admin for TWO good actions. First permitting the pro-life messages, then unambiguously DEFENDING the messages against the censor. No weasely mumbling about balance or inclusion or Die-Versity. No need to punish the censor. His foot speaks louder than his slogans. Best of all, the fact that he teaches PUBLIC HEALTH verifies what we already know: Public health is no longer about health. It's solely and specifically about STOMPING heretics and ERASING Deplorables.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
