Meet LSU’s New Self-Appointed Acceptable Speech Czar

Earlier this week, we brought you the story of Ethan Guerra-Deslatte. He’s LSU student and John Bel Edwards intern who is trying to punish a fraternity over a Game Day banner mocking 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

This Pajama Boy wannabe has now emerged as the ringleader of the totalitarian campus left activists who are trying to ban Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking on campus next week. The LSU chapter of Students for Trump invited Milo to speak about campus free speech issues.

From The Reveille:

Ethan Guerra-Deslatte, vice president of administration for LGBTQ student organization Spectrum, said he and other students have been receiving counsel from the Office of Multicultural Affairs and have been in communication with the Office of Diversity on how best to handle and potentially prohibit Yiannopoulos’ upcoming appearance.

LSU Vice Provost & Chief Diversity Officer Dereck Rovaris suggested invoking a University policy stating that if someone has a history of violence or causing violence, their event on campus can be denied, Guerra-Deslatte said.

“He’s not just anti-LGBT. He’s anti- anything that will get him attention,” Guerra-Deslatte said of Yiannopoulos. “This realistically can incite violence.”

I’m not a fan on Milo or his whole “being an asshole for the sake of being an asshole” schtick. But I also realize it’s a thing because of wannabe totalitarians like Pajama Boy here.

Milo has the right to express his viewpoints at a publicly funded university like LSU. It is the job of a university to expose its students to differing viewpoints, even the ones that hurt Ethan Guerra-Deslatte’s feelings. It is Guerra-Deslatte’s right to protest Milo, but it is also Students For Trump’s right to bring him on campus. Any violence that results from it is the fault of the people committing it, not Milo.

If Ethan Guerra-Deslatte is going to protest Milo, he should actually know what he’s protesting. Milo is about as far from being “anti-LGBT” as you can get because he’s well…..gay.
