Transcript BF Srian Minton penned this illustration to run in the November 8th issue of The Daily Cougar. While the Cougar staff claimed freedom of speech, College Republicans took strong offense at its content. Courtesy of: The Daily Cougar No Holds Barred Political Cartoon Divides Campus And Community BY: Matt Rogers A cartoon published on page three of The Daily Cougar became the lead topic of three local television networks when a group of students took offense at its content. In the height of the presidential election, Cougar cartoonist Brian Minton penned a cartoon depicting College Republicans holding signs reading "Burn the Homeless" while standing in front of what appeared to be a large swastika. He later claimed it was actually a piece of a campus sculpture. "It's outrageous to link us to Nazis," David Baker, executive director of the College Republicans, told The Daily Cougar later that week. While some objected to the cartoon's content, Daily Cougar staff members believed there was a larger issue at stake ~ freedom of speech. "Our Page Three is for the open exchange of ideas. Because we offend someone doesn't mean we did something wrong',' said Managing Editor Robert Schoenberger, in a report appearing in the Cougar. Members of the College Republicans bitterly disagreed with Schoenberger. "I do believe they have overstepped their boundary legally as well as ethically!' Baker told a Cougar reporter. In a letter addressed to Vice President of Student Affairs Elwyn Lee, College Republicans President Michael Dugan called for administrative oversight of the Cougars content. "The editors of the Cougar cannot continue to publish such hateful pieces with impunity, Clearly, any entity on campus that claims to represent the University in an official capacity cannot be so irresponsible in their decision making process," Dugan said. The College Republicans were invited to voice their opinion at that week's Student Publications Committee meeting, but did not show. The organization also refused opportunities to respond to the paper through letters or columns. Student Life
