Hate group posters found on NIU campus
http://www.nwherald.com/2017/10/18/hate-...s/arusut4/

Of all the places, one of the building these hate group posters have been found is in Swen Parson Hall, the College of Law building! You can tell by my name here I don't like this one bit in the building where I went to law school!

I don't know what the posters said, but the constitutional right to free speech does not extend to what you usually see from hate groups. I hope the administration makes it a priority to nip this in the bud ASAP!

The same sort of thing with sick posters happened several months ago at UIC in the Daley Library.

All I was saying is that the constitutional right to free speech does not extend to unprotected speech. An over simplified list of speech that is not protected by the First Amendment is found here:

http://www.newseuminstitute.org/about/fa...amendment/

Often times the garbage spewed by hate groups is considered incitement to imminent lawless action and/or true threats, which are not protected speech.

There has been an ongoing debate about the constitutional right to free speech as to hate groups; these are just 2 articles of the many out there.

https://www.americanbar.org/groups/publi..._hate.html

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opini...story.html

That is why I said it depends on what the posters said; if the posters would not be considered an incitement to imminent lawless action and/or true threats, it could be protected speech under the First Amendment, as much as I despise hate groups and the complete trash they spew!

Of course, there is the question of whether the freedom of speech guarantee under the First Amendment even applies to public universities.
