Freedom of Speech?

Here's a novel interpretation of "freedom of speech". At Northern Kentucky University Wednesday some students destroyed an anti-abortion display. Their teacher, literature and language professor Sally Jacobsen, is quoted as saying:

I did, outside of class during the break, invite students to express their freedom of speech rights to destroy the display if they wished to.

Interfering with other people's speech is freedom of speech? According to Jacobsen's web site her specialty is British women's literature. She should have studied Orwell.
