A college in Boston, USA, suspended local representation of the Conservative student group Turning Point USA, whose members criticized the Chinese government and distributed stickers around campus. The company has also launched an investigation into the matter.

The film shows a puppet from the video game “Among Us” (which is to find the “imposer” among the soldiers) in a red suit, wearing a hammer and sickle under the heading “China Kinda Suz” – “China is suspicious,” in slang translated from English.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIR), a non-profit, non-profit organization that advocates for the rights of teachers and students in American institutions of higher learning, sent a letter to the Association and the appropriate process of law. To the leadership of Emerson College to conclude the investigation.

While the poll is in progress, Turning Point USA members are prohibited from organizing events or allocating space for meetings.

According to Fire, after the stickers were distributed, Emerson’s International Student Affairs Committee issued a statement to foreign students at the college condemning the “stickers that expressed hatred against China.” Other student groups, including Emerson’s Chinese Student Union, have accused Turning Point USA of racism. The teachers who faced these reactions announced that they would start an investigation.

Turning Point USA stickers are critical of the Chinese government, not the Chinese people. “This investigation will make students and teachers suspect that their rights have nothing to do with teachers. Emerson should immediately correct this and insist that criticizing the foreign government is not discriminatory harassment.

The fire indicated that similar cases had already occurred at other institutions of higher learning in the United States. A student at Fordham University in New York has sued the company after being banned from campus for posting on Instagram to pay tribute to the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre. A professor at the University of San Diego Law School was questioned in March for criticizing the Chinese dictatorship on his personal blog. The fire intervened and the investigation was closed.
