A group of Clemson students are demanding that the university “prosecute defamatory speech” to help correct a “pattern of social injustice” at the school.

As part of an on-campus campaign known as See the Stripes, “underrepresented” groups have created a list of grievances and demands following a Clemson fraternity’s “ Crip-mas” themed party in December.

“[W]e want a public commitment from the Clemson University Administration to prosecute criminally predatory behaviors and defamatory speech committed by members of the Clemson University community (including, but not limited to, those facilitated by usage of social media),” the demand from the group states.

“The First Amendment unconditionally protects freedom of speech,” said William Turton, chairman of Clemson’s Young Americans for Freedom, told Campus Reform. “This fundamental American value is non-negotiable. All speech, even speech that is considered offensive and hateful, is protected. I may disagree with such speech, but it should not be silenced.”
