As Twitchy has reported, students of Goddard College in Vermont selected convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to deliver the school’s commencement address. The video will be recorded in prison and played at the school’s commencement ceremony.

The school’s invitation to Abu-Jamal has been criticized widely, but a hashtag was started in support of a commencement address from Mumia:

Goddardites unite! @goddardcollege alums, students, faculty RT #supportmumiagraduationspeech to show your support.

Since they’re on the topic of “free speech”:

Mumia snuffed #DanielFaulkner 's free speech right out of him. #SupportMumiaGraduationSpeech

#GoddardCollege: #DanielFaulkner doesn't #SupportMumiaGraduationSpeech because your speaker killed him – @PhillyPolice @FOPLodge5

— Cameron Gray (@Cameron_Gray) October 4, 2014

You are demonstrating both free speech and poor judgment. @goddardcollege #SupportMumiaGraduationSpeech @samanthakolber #GoddardCollege

I see from your resume you u graduated from #GoddardCollege in 2014. *Throws resume in trash* #GoddardCollege #supportmumiagraduationspeech

Because many Goddard students claim to support free speech so much, how about sending a speaking invitation to the widow of Daniel Faulkner, the officer Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering? We’re sure she’d have something to say to them.
