Posters Marking Remembrance of 9/11 Vandalized at U. Florida
No respect for the dead.
Earlier this week, we reported on a similar incident at Occidental College. Do these students have any idea how offensive their behavior is to most Americans?
Campus Reform reports:
9/11 posters vandalized at Florida
Posters memorializing the lives lost on Sept. 11 2001 were vandalized by University of Florida students on Friday afternoon.
The Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter at the University of Florida decided to hang up posters with photos labeled ‘Never Forget’ in remembrance of the 9/11 terrorist attacks 15 years ago.
The posters also included images of the Iranian hostage Crisis, Benghazi attack, Beirut Marine barracks bombing, USS Cole attack, the murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl, the Orlando nightclub shooting, and the ISIS beheading of American James Wright Foley
Shortly after the posters were hung, Daniel Weldon, President and founder of the YAF chapter told Campus Reform that one poster was vandalized with “Love Trumps Hate,” and two other posters residing in designated “free speech zones” were “torn from the walls.”
When Weldon confronted the individual that carried out these actions, her response was that “his freedom of speech did not matter” because her “freedom of speech is to have my poster go over yours.”
