University Of Texas Champions Free Speech, Ignores Demands To Disband Conservative Student Group

The University of Texas at Austin will ignore demands from student officials to “disband” a young conservative student group following a controversial “affirmative action bake sale” last week.

The bake sale instantly drew large crowds of protesters, many claiming the bake sale was a “hate crime.” A petition demanding the removal of the group also circulated the campus and as of Thursday, it has 863 signatures.

A resolution, filed by multiple members of the UT student government, called on the UT administration to not only disband Young Conservatives of Texas but demanding that they university respond to future incidents by “putting an individual or organization on disciplinary probation, suspending them or expelling them from campus.”

The director of UT media outreach, J.B. Bird, told The Daily Texan that both the petition and resolution will not be acknowledged by the university because the bake sale is considered a form of protected speech, making participants immune to punishment by the public university.
