University employees: New social media policy is broad, vague and "chilling"

in a state where the chief CEO owes his powers to the tea party of Koch Brothers LLC LTD Inc. -- and where first amendment rights are second to second amendment rights and the NRA Gun Lobby -- this was expected. That no one voted against it only means that all of the new appointments were from the Brownback rightwing nut branch of the GOP. (Or not as One of them Sez). Lawyers and courts and costs coming up. The Lawyers on the Regents love that -- of course.

Regents pass social media policy in wake of Guth tweet

If the faculty member involved had sent a message against, say, a mosque after the April Boston bomb attacks, would that had caused the Regent to have new policy? I suggest no -- it happened only because the gun industry and their lobby NRA was involved. Really. Let's call this the "except for guns" first amendment rule.
