The Free Beacon reported this about TCU’s punishment:

A non-profit foundation that advocates for civil liberties on college campuses is urging Texas Christian University to reverse penalties and sanctions applied to a student after objections were made to content he had posted on Twitter and Facebook.

Harry Vincent was penalized for posts he made related to the recent protests in Baltimore, the Islamic State, and the threat of terrorism, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. His suspension came after a Tumblr user created a post containing screenshots of some of Vincent’s posts. The user labeled Vincent’s commentary “racist” and “disgusting” and asked readers to contact TCU to report his speech.
