    KSU football team refusing to practice or play

    Until a student is expelled from campus for a supposedly racist and/or threatening tweet. I say supposedly because I can't find what the tweet says, but if there was no threat made I don't see grounds for expulsion. The first amendment guarantees your right to be an utter revolting shit if you want to be one. Is KSU now going to have twitter police monitoring every student's tweets? I just wish I knew what the tweet said. If it was just along the lines of a certain race or group is a bunch of subhuman garbage and I wish they weren't here then that is despicable but I see no grounds for expulsion. If the student added "and I wish they were all dead and I'm going to start making that happen" then you possibly have an entirely different ballgame as you have entered threat territory.

    He said "congratulations to George Floyd for being 1 month drug free." Kid is the founder of America First group on their campus. He's deserves whatever comes his way in my opinion.

    If this is successful (and it probably will be) I can't wait for a tweet from a player that is racist to make it public and demands for his expulsion to crank up.

    This whole damn country is turning on itself. It's really getting sad and scary. Someone gets offended and instead of putting on your big boy pants and saying 17 it and moving on with life you have to drop down in the floor and have an adult version of a temper tantrum and start demanding all this bullshit and rioting and looting. 17 me, people, does nobody have a backbone anymore?

    In the 1700's, severely out manned and out gunned we kicked the shit out of the British and won our freedom. In the early to mid 1900's we kicked the shit out of fascism and nazism twice. In the 1990's we kicked the shit out of the world's third largest army that was attempting to take over a region. In the early 2000's, in just a few weeks, we kicked the shit out of an army that fought the Soviet war machine to a years long quagmire. This country used to have balls and fortitude. Now we can't go about our day to day lives because of the logo on a 17ing bottle of pancake syrup.

    Revolting. Despicable. Not worthy of expulsion.

    I'm not really sure how it works legally but if Kansas state doesn't want him representing them especially with an organization on their campus I understand that. But you're probably correct in that they may not have that authority legally. If they had known he had tweeted something similar to this prior to applying they could simply deny him admission.

    This idea has become so beaten down between tech censorship and the woke corporations holding your livelihood in their hands. People have to conform to their employer's politics or face financial ruin. The decline of worker's rights in this country has been a disgrace.

    Not really. Schools expel people all the time for saying/doing reprehensible things.

    I heard edgier jokes in the 4th Grade but wokeness is the new religion and Floyd a Saint so the modern Inquisition must come down hard on the heretic.

    What is free speech supposed to protect you from? I mean he ain't getting arrested. Give me a constitution lesson because you are clearly much more of a bonafide patriot than I am. KSU doesn't want to associate with him seems like within their right to me.

    Also no one is forcing you and your buddy to get on social media. Play at your own risk, especially if y'all think it's the downfall of society.

    It's supposed to protect you from getting kicked out of school for making a bad joke.

    Yes, basically first amendment free speech is just about the fact that there can't be laws on the books that prevent someone's right to express their opinion (including even a disgusting one like this K-State student). However, there are non-legal consequences of someone speaking their mind every day. Colleges set their own admission standards as to who they will accept and set their own student conduct policies for their own campus. Even if someone gets kicked out of college for vulgar speech, it doesn't mean their first amendment right was violated as long as they aren't legally prosecuted. Even if this guy was kicked out of K-State nobody is stopping him from exercising his free speech rights. He can keep on saying what he wants to say but he just won't be saying it as a K-State student.

    Every good black comedian I?ve ever watched makes jokes just as racially off-color as that. And I only mention black comics because I don?t really like white comics, so I don?t watch them.

    True, but most colleges have to try and uphold some kind of conduct standards for their students. Most comics don't have any standards.
