Conservative UCSD student banned from Facebook meme page for mocking media darling David Hogg

UCSD

Liberals, as we’ve said time and again, do not support free speech — they simply reserve it for themselves.  On Tuesday, the College Fix reported that Gregory Lu, a vocal conservative student at UC San Diego, was banned from the UCSD Memes for Sleep Deprived Tritons, a popular student-run Facebook group where silly pictures and jokes about campus life reign supreme.  His crime?  He mocked media darling and anti-gun leftist David Hogg.

According to the College Fix:

…David Hogg, a survivor of the recent mass shooting massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida, has become the viral fresh-faced advocate against the NRA and gun-rights groups. Hogg tweeted that he got rejected from another college but “that’s ok we’re already changing the world.” Asked about it, Hogg replied he was rejected from UCSD.

That exchange landed on UCSD Memes for Sleep Deprived Tritons, eliciting much sympathy from students but a hearty “LOL” from Lu. There were some other comments that echoed a mocking tone against Hogg, prompting one moderator to suggest the thread was filled with “hella salty pro-gun people.”

Lu chimed in: “Why would I be salty that he didn’t get into UCSD?”

He was soon banned again. It means he can’t access the page anymore. Asked why, Lu was trolled by a moderator.

“I’m sorry lad,” came the reply. “But we have one rule. If your name starts with G and your last name starts with L we can’t add you back to the page.”

According to Lu, page moderators have made left-leaning political comments and posts without punishment, so there is a certain level of hypocrisy going on.

“How it is ok that a mod on the page can make a comment disparaging people of a specific political belief and then also post images with political opinions and be completely fine, while I’m the one that gets banned,” he The Fix. “If someone else is the one to break the ‘rules,’ especially a mod, and make comments regarding politics, why is it fair that I’m the one that gets banned?”

“Getting banned from the meme page can be something of a bummer. With nearly 27,000 members it’s considered one of the hottest UCSD Facebook pages to see and be seen in,” the report said.

It’s not the first time Lu has been banned from the group, College Fix said.

There’s more, here… And it says a lot about the modern left, which appears to be getting more tyrannical as time goes on.
