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

Quote:
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.

"Taser this: F**k Bush" was printed on the opinion page of the newspaper, causing CSU president Larry Penley to issue a formal statement and the Board of Student Communications to plan a meeting for Wednesday night. During the meeting they will decide on the fate of McSwane and his future involvement with the publication.

"We'll present our petition to the board at the meeting," said student Chelsey Penoyer, the chairman of the College Republicans.

"We're petitioning that he should resign on his own. The petition also urges students to think twice before going to businesses who continue advertising with The Collegian."

In a confidential memo mistakenly released to the local newspaper, The Coloradoan, Fort Collins businesses have already pulled out $30,000 in advertising with The Collegian, which relies completely on external revenue to operate, not student fees.

When it comes to Bush, the First Amendment becomes obsolete. It should be the other way around. This is upsetting to me...when I was in college, there would not have been a student protest against free speech...never. When I was in college, if the Bushies had been in office and doing the things the Bushies are doing now, the college students would be the ones marching and rallying and protesting, not signing petitions in favor of a moron like Bush.

In fact, college protests against the government seem to have become rather antiquated.

I say FUCK BUSH... :evil:

I was called a "throw back from the 60's" because I am for freedom of speech and marches against the war. Even heard a couple of people laughing about all the "old hippies" marching in DC.

The young have become good little Germans and will sit and watch all our freedoms just "go away".

FUCK BUSH!!
