Liberal Thought Police Advertisement Likely Stolen by Thought Police
February 4, 2015 - Ann Arbor, MI – A paid billboard at the University of Michigan was stolen, advertising for an event headlined by conservative political commentator and New York Times best-selling author Jonah Goldberg next week. Ironically the stolen sign had with the words “Warning, Liberal Thought Police” (Click here to view sign). The conservative student group Young Americans for Freedom is sponsoring the event.
Grant Strobl, Chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Michigan says, “It is ironic a sign warning of the liberal thought police, was potentially stolen by the liberal thought police. We have filed a report with the real police, and when we find out who did this, we will be pursuing action to the fullest extent of the law.”
The 4’x6’ canvas billboard was placed in front of the University of Michigan Union. The canvas itself was valued at $50, and the advertising space purchased from the University of Michigan was valued at $30.
Jonah Goldberg’s upcoming address will take place February 12th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Rackham Amphitheater. The campus police will monitor the replacement signs until the event to ensure that they remain intact. Young Americans for Freedom hopes that the University will remain a campus in which a wide arrange of viewpoints are tolerated, and where constructive dialogue is encouraged, rather than stifled.
