Federal appeals court gives green light to administrators to expel students for tweeting

Snippet -

Because Twitter didn’t exist when legal precedents were set

Are you a student at a public college in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah or Wyoming? Also, do you tweet?

You might want to transfer to a college in another state, one whose federal appeals court knows something about First Amendment precedents.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals released a bizarre opinion last week exonerating an administrator who expelled a student because he called his ex-girlfriend a “psycho bitch” on Twitter.

Navid Yeasin didn’t tweet at her; indeed, he had already blocked her from his feed. But the University of Kansas said he violated an ex post facto condition of an earlier no-contact order by mentioning her at all.

That’s right – this publicly funded entity gives itself the right to kneecap the education you already paid for if you privately mention your ex on Twitter.

A state appeals court already overturned Yeasin’s expulsion as a violation of KU’s own student conduct code – it can’t punish off-campus conduct – but ignored First Amendment and Title IX issues.

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm”, to which Trump replied
“I am the storm”
