'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.Yep. A poster from Firefly, and this poster:

How much would you care to bet this very same poster was hanging off of, oh, pretty much every door at ol' UWS every time George W. Bush made a speech? My #1 blogson has made an excellent point about lefties not being able to handle being "The Man", which lead to his most excellent TheOnesDay series. George W. Bush was Hitler, invaded countries to steal their oil - or avenge his father; had dissidents rounded up and tossed into Gitmo; arranged the savage pantying at Abu Ghraib; and a whole host of other charges the left gleefully flung his way.
But oh, you put up a poster we don't like? We'll quash your freedom of speech like a bug. How dare you express yourself in non-approved ways! Don't you know that dissent is unpatriotic? That's when the President has a (D) after his name; if he has an (R) then dissent is the highest form of patriotism. And yes, we've always been at war with Eastasia...
If these weren't the institutions charged with educating the next generations of teachers and politicians, it'd be comical...
That is all.
