Ahead of Trump visit, UA SGA warns students: No disruptive behavior
Updated 3:01 PM; Today 12:27 PM

By Leada Gore lgore@al.com
Update:

Jason Rothfarb, vice president for Student Affairs for University of Alabama SGA, issued a follow-up statement regarding his previous email related to disruptions during the Alabama/LSU football game. The email was published via social media:

"Some have misinterpreted my comment regarding "disruptive behavior." As with other games this season, Organization's Block Seating locations will be clearly marked, but at certain times, other students can and should have access to open seats. By disruptive behavior, we are asking students to be respectful to all students and staff and avoid altercations.
....

Earlier:

The Student Government Association at the University of Alabama is warning student groups that causing disruptions during President Trump's visit to the Tide's Saturday game vs. LSU could result in the loss of reserved seating for the remainder of the season.

A letter from Jason Rothfarb, vice president of Student Affairs, said additional security will be in Bryant Denny's student section during the Saturday afternoon football game. President Trump is expected to be in the audience.

Disruptive activities will have consequences, Rothfarb wrote.

"Any organizations that engage in disruptive behavior during the game will be removed from block seating instantly for the remainder of the season," he wrote.

Copies of the letter were posted to social media.



....

Updated Nov. 6 at 2:38 p.m. to clarify Rothfarb referenced disruptions and not protests.

2. Does that mean they can't cheer him either...

that would also be disruptive. He is such a manipulative creep who is so transparent and doesn't know he is because he is a moron.

ALABAMA: University Students Warned They Will Be Punished If They Dare Protest Against Glorious Leader
November 6, 2019

The Montgomery News reports:

18. That was a very stupid thing to do.

There will be disruptive behavior from the beginning to the end of that game is my prediction.

4. I hope that's taken as a challenge. All the better for someone with a real masterstroke idea.

If someone comes up with something really good, they'll be famous.

11. Jesus H Christ... Have students forgotten

It is their right and their obligation to make the Administration uncomfortable by protesting? It is also their duty to make sure the Student Government knows they are nothing more than a bunch of corporate clown sellouts.

16. I'd love to hear them boo the shite out of him. But I doubt this group will.

If they do, then there may be hope after all.

19. What did you do in the war, Daddy?

"I booed Trump and lost my seating..." Just do it, fans! Do it, and let the fallout fall where it will. Don't let him and his entourage feel comfortable anywhere.

He ruins everything he touches, anyway, and he will ruin your ball game, too.

Perhaps a collective fickle, flying finger of fate, foam rubber style. Just all stand up and point it in his direction.

20. Thing is, Trump's decision was last minute and extremely inconvenient anyway.

He'll get booed simply for the security nightmare he's adding to an already stressful game that is probably one of the single most important games of the season for UA. Sister in Law is a UA alumni with season seats; she's not sure if she wants to go after the debacle of his 5 minute stand up and wave showing at last year's championship.

There is nothing more important on that state than College Football. And he's fucking the situation up even more than this game already is, with two major television shows there to cover the game. This is an event nightmare in the making.
