Calls for student editor to resign after '**** Bush' column


www.cnn.com

FORT COLLINS, Colorado (CNN) -- The College Republicans, a student organization at Colorado State University, weren't planning anything special for the last week of September.

Then on September 21, David McSwane, the editor-in-chief of The Rocky Mountain Collegian, the daily student newspaper, printed the four-word column that sparked a national free speech debate and sent the College Republicans into action, writing a petition to force him to resign.

What an Einstein...

Perhaps the "pair" the student editor should have is brain cells. What does George Bush have to do with the events at the University of Florida? Nothing. The juvenile association is barely acceptable for some mouth breathing MoveOn.org hack, much less a journalism student... What's the next headline? **** Bush, the sun rose this morning?

There is little hope for our future when agenda first crowd permeates our society.

:shk:

really? Did you read the article linked, especially regarding the motive behind this? It was stated the reason for the article was freedom of speech, inspired by Andrew Meyer's actions, and the violation of his freedoms.

There's a leap... First by the "student editor" and then by yourself. Once again, George Bush had no impact on the events that occurred at the University of Florida, or for "freedom of speech" in in general. I'm always amused when "freedom of speech" is bandied about like some catch all get out of jail free card. It's not... And I blame public education for the masses inability to understand the true nature and scope of the First Amendment to the Constitution of The United States.

Perhaps at some point vitriol will be supplanted by substance, but I'm not seeing a positive trend .

not sure where my leap came into play. i was just relaying the information you obviously ignored/missed from the article, and even trying to draw it out for you, since it appears you were unable to see the connection being drawn.

i never made any statements as to my personal opinion in this thread.

So a claim of "I did it because of this" imparts validity? I must have missed that "connection" class... And yes, your tacit acceptance of the editor's explanation" makes you complicit.

heh, so now I am in on the conspiracy?

If you want my opinion, there is no need to draw it out using backhanded comments, just ask


Personally, I think he should resign as well. I do not think this is a case for freedom of speech, in any way. Unless this kid is printing and distributing this entire publication by himself, then other people should probably resign as well.

I'm just not so argumentative, that I will ignore a perspective being presented, simply because i disagree with it. :shk:
