    What Tolerance? University of Minnesota-Morris Shutdown Student Radio Over Using the Word ‘Tranny’

    Students at the University of Minnesota-Morris were booted off air for simply using the word ‘tranny.’

    While claiming the word is a violation of FCC policy, and threatening that use of the word is against the law, the student station manager had the “Deplorable Radio” station terminated from air.

    During a discussion about the university’s lack of “Antifa” violence, Albrecht said the campus was too small for a potential violent activist to hide his identity.

    “You know, you can definitely, you see one tranny that’s trying to punch someone,” Albrecht told The Fix he said on-air. “You know it’s automatically that one guy that you know I’m talking about. I bet you know. I’m not going to dox anybody and name them on air. But you two know if I say the tranny who looks like he’s going to punch someone. Yep.”

    “About fifteen minutes later,” Albrecht told The Fix, “the student station manager came into the studio with a UMMPD officer and told us to leave. She said we had violated FCC law by saying a word that was never allowed on air, ‘tranny.’ So we packed up and left the studio.”
