    U-Wisc Prof May Not Have Aimed To Misbehave, But Is Busted By PC Police Anyway

    U-Wisc Prof May Not Have Aimed To Misbehave, But Is Busted By PC Police Anyway

    As Instapundit said, it’s  Brownshirts vs. Browncoats, as a University of Wisconsin professor displays a poster of an unapproved rebellious figure.

    ‘Firefly’ and Anti-Fascism Posters Get Professor Threatened with Criminal Charges on University of Wisconsin Campus

    MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 26, 2011—A professor has been censored twice, reported to the “threat assessment team,” and threatened with criminal charges because of satirical postings on his office door. Campus police at the University of Wisconsin–Stout (UWS) censored theater professor James Miller’s poster depicting a quotation from actor Nathan Fillion’s character in the television series Firefly, and the police chief threatened Miller with criminal charges for disorderly conduct. After UWS censored his second poster, which stated, “Warning: Fascism,”

    FIRE is on the case:

    Miller came to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help.

    “Colleges and universities are supposed to foster brave and bold environments of freewheeling intellectual inquiry and expression. If a quote from a network science fiction show is a bridge too far, something has gone seriously wrong,” FIRE President Greg Lukianoff said. “As both president of FIRE and a huge Firefly fan, I call on the chancellor of UW–Stout to rein in his overreaching administration and to restore both free speech and basic common sense.”
