In one of the more absurd acts of fascist behavior imaginable, students at Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Michigan were actually arrested for handing out copies of the United States Constitution without first asking the administrators for permission to do so. Unsurprisingly, the students were members of the Young Americans for Liberty chapter of their college, which has a history of standing up for individual liberty and free speech.

Unfortunately, the powers that be at the school don’t think nearly as highly about the United States Constitution as the Young Americans for Liberty and did everything in their power to have the students arrested for promoting free speech without first asking for their permission — which violates a solicitation policy in effect at Kellogg Community College.

Jack Burns of The Free Thought Project reports, “Additionally, the distribution of materials, according to the college, must be approved first by the department known as Student Life. In other words, the exercise of students’ first amendment rights according to the U.S. Constitution is regulated by the public school’s Student Life department. And the school defines free speech as ‘solicitation,’ another activity which must be pre-approved.” Demanding that free speech be approved destroys the very concept upon which free speech is based. It should not be unrestricted in any way, regardless of how unpopular or controversial the subject matter may be.
