University of Florida Threatens Student Protesters With Suspension, Banishment from Campus

The University of Florida threatened pro-Palestinian student demonstrators with suspension and banishment from campus for three years in a letter if they violate any of the rules put in place regarding protests.

Some of the rules included prohibiting protesters from using bullhorns or speakers to amplify their voices, possessing weapons or protesting inside buildings on campus.

The university said it permitted activities included “speech,” “expressing viewpoints” and “holding signs in hands.”

Other prohibited activities included littering, camping or use of tents, sleeping bags or pillows, and blocking anyone’s path. 

The letter was not signed or dated but indicated it was sent from the university’s Division of Student Life.

“I have had issues with@UF’s refusal to follow Florida law since October, but as far as these Muslim terror campus takeovers go, this is perfect. It preserves 1A while preventing disruption, and provides severe consequences for those Muslim terror supporters who refuse to comply. Every University in Florida — and the country — should copy and paste it; any that don’t (or haven’t taken similar action, like we see at Emory or UT), are no more than madrasas,” Florida Rep. Randy Fine, the state Legislature’s only Jewish Republican, said.

The protests held at UF were relatively tame compared to other universities across the country, WUFT reported.
