Conservative students are frequently becoming victims of hostile and intolerant teachers on college campuses across America. As more and more liberals become emboldened by the hate-Trump and hate-anyone-who-disagrees-with-us movement being pushed by Democrats, Hollywood and the media, it’s more important than ever for students to take a stand against this tyrannical behavior. As long as it’s legal in their state, students need to start recording what’s happening to them. The only way this will stop is if students start suing these people for denying them basic rights that are afforded to all Americans in our Constitution.
A Fresno State University professor was recently caught on camera scrubbing pro-life message off of the sidewalk and encouraging several of his students to do the same.
Here is Gregory Thatcher’s profile on the Fresno State College website. We thought we’d post it before they take it down. His contact information is listed below, if you’d like to have a respectful free speech discussion with him.
“The whole idea of free speech is that we have a free speech area on campus, kay?” Professor Gregory Thatcher erroneously declares in a video recorded by the school’s Students for Life chapter. “Free speech is free speech in the free speech area. It’s a pretty simple concept, okay? This does not constitute a free speech area, okay?”
He and his “students” go on to argue that it is within their own First Amendment rights to actively remove the pro-life messages from campus, and in one instance Thatcher claims that since the pro-life group has “permission to put it down” he has “permission to get rid of it.”
“This is our part of free speech. Do you disagree with our part of free speech?” Thatcher asked while erasing one of the club’s messages, after which he proclaimed that “college campuses are not free speech areas.”
The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has since filed a lawsuit against Thatcher on behalf of the Students for Life chapter at Fresno State, arguing that his efforts to intimidate and harass members of the Student for Life chapter violated their fundamental right to free speech.
***WARNING***The video you are about to see will make your blood boil. It’s pretty hard to watch a full grown man employed by Fresno College sending female students out to do his dirty work. It’s even harder to watch the way he aggressively approaches this young female pro-life student, while arrogantly explaining to her that he has the right to deny her free-speech in America…
“Fresno State Students for Life received full permission to chalk pro-life messages near the library. Rather than countering with his own message, Dr. Thatcher took the illegal approach of censoring speech and inciting students to help in this,” Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, remarked in a press release, claiming that no student “should have to endure this kind of intimidation and harassment for simply expressing their views.”
