Turning Point USA at Arkansas State University v. Rhodes
« on: November 04, 2019, 01:10:18 PM »
Summary
Arkansas State officials kicked a student and another individual off the patio in front of the Student Union and threatened her with a violation of the student code of conduct simply for setting up a table to promote the campus chapter of Turning Point USA. The lawsuit prompted the state of Arkansas to enact campus free speech legislation known as the FORUM Act, which prohibits such restrictive speech policies. As a result, the university changed the bad policies it relied upon to censor the student, but a federal district court ultimately left no repercussions for university officials for their unconstitutional actions.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
