More than a dozen posters depicting President John Bardo emblazoned with the message “MISSING: Have you seen this man?” were spotted on a message board south of Lindquist Hall at 8 a.m. Thursday.

They were gone within an hour, a source said.

University sources said the posters were taken down by a student.

Jared Smith, president of student veterans organization, claimed credit for the removal, calling the posters “libelous.”

The posters said Bardo was last seen “At Starbucks evading student concerns and presidential responsibilities on April 10, 2017.”

The poster also mentions Bardo’s salary and makes note of his alleged “Frequency to fire employees for disagreeing with him.”

    Does Jared Smith realize that he’s violated free speech? How is this libelous when it is true?

    They used their right to post the posters with false information. Jared used his right to take them down where is the problem?

    Back when the Muslim students and SGA members were being criticized by community members and donors for changing the seating in the Chapel, President Bardo stood solid on the side of Freedom of Speech. And now? Let’s hear him say to stop this behavior and let Free Speech work. Maybe he can even have Andy Schlapp put back up the Gender Neutral Shower banner in the Heskett Center that Andy took down several months ago that was a move against transgender students that is still unexplained.

    I’m not defending Bardo is any way shape or form but you know you can’t take We The Student’s Republic serious when they have to put cis gender on the flyer. They’re type of self important, easily offended SJWs fine arts and sociology majors that make society one big safe space… Now just wait and see “but it’s the current year, my feelings matter” rebuttal.
