Dixie State University says Students Can’t Criticize Presidents

A lawsuit was filed by the Young Americans for Liberty group, who was prevented from expressing free speech by way of satire of George W. Bush and Barack Obama. As The College Fix reported:

“Students at Dixie State University have filed a lawsuit against their school after administrators refused to approve their request to distribute flyers to promote their libertarian club, hand outs that rebuked big government by playfully lampooning George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Campus officials denied the flyers on the grounds that they violated school policy, which does not allow students to disparage others, according to the lawsuit. But the students, members of Young Americans for Liberty, allege their free speech rights have been infringed, and a leader of the group said in an interview administrators are “silencing and marginalizing” them.”
