As you may know, Kay Yow — NCSU’s women’s basketball coach — lost her battle with cancer recently. So a group of mourners got together and painted a mural in the Free Expression Tunnel in her honor.

Some assholes decide to deface it with phrases like “Cancer rules”.

And how do we respond? By painting over the defacement. As FIRE says, responding to speech with more speech. No sanctions, no arrests, no witch hunts.

So what made all that okay in November when it was Obama being defaced?
