(Lake Worth, FL) On Tuesday September 7, 2010 at around 11:00am one Palm Beach State College (PBSC) student and two Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) members, state chairman Daniel P. Diaz and state vice chairman Eddie Shaffer, were shut down and had campus police called on them after tabling and recruiting during club rush at the College. The PBSC student, Christina Beattie, had received prior permission from college administrator Olivia Ford-Morris to promote her organization on campus via telephone and email communication.
On the day of club rush, officials approached the group and after seeing information about the organization and its ideals criticizing Barack Obamas economic policy. Ms. Ford-Morris was visibly disturbed by the material presented, published by the Heritage Foundation, criticizing President Obamas administration. College officials then called the campus police to assure the group left campus. Ms. Ford-Morris denied having ever talked to Ms. Beattie about giving permission to the organization to be a part of PBSC club rush.
I was shocked and offended by her dishonesty. She outright denied giving me permission to table at Club Rush simply because she disagreed with my beliefs! The fact is, she was using her administrative power to silence the conservative opposition. said Christina Beattie.

They probably had their table outside of the designated “free speech zone.”
What a surprise. Lib loonies in academia suppressing free speech. Such tolerance. Such diversity of ideas.
Sounds like the school fears offending some big Obama connected donors to the school.
FIRE (http://www.thefire.org) is one conservative student activist support organization which addresses itself to such matters. (There may be others.)
Do not criticize the Fuhrer. It goes against their doctrine of enslaving the minds of our youth.
“...Ms. Ford-Morris was visibly disturbed by the material presented, published by the Heritage Foundation...”
So the hyphenated, overpaid/underworked, lesbian academic is “visibly disturbed” (gasp/shudder/palpitate), over the lukewarm conservatism of the Heritage Foundation?
Someone’s sheltered ass is in for a stinging education when the real, boots on the ground, deal goes down.
Just another racist black in a position of authority for which they are apparently not qualified, probably gained via affirmative action quotas, given the setting. Using her power to support their co-ethnics while intimidating Whites and conservatives.
Welcome to Obama's America!
Be wary around “dash women”. Especially “Ms” dash women.
But PRO-Obama literature in the liberal college group(s) is OK, right?
The only good thing about this is that we’ve not yet reached the point where the students were summarily executed for blasphemy.

Sounds like this is about as clear cut a case as you will find of illegal activity by those in control.
At first I couldn’t believe any administrator could do this then the thought came to me that this must have been a Black administrator to be so sensitive to criticism of Obama. Sure enough, I scrolled down the page and there was her picture.
It used to be that schools were a place where fair debates were held about hot issues of the day. Instead now they seem to be liberal dirty trick think tanks.
This infringes the student’s Freedom of Speech? Where’s the ACLU?
The libs in the school probably can’t even see the irony.
This over-promoted affirmative action administrator is proving their point.
