It’d be nice if congress would do something like this on a national level.

Tennessee passes the ‘Milo bill’ guaranteeing free speech on colleges

As college campuses across the country, especially in California, suppress free speech to protect liberal students’ feelings, the state of Tennessee just passed a landmark law...

It’s amazing that this is still occurring on college campuses after all the bad publicity for so many schools in recent months. What do we have to do to stop this from happening?

At what point do we admit as a country that we have a problem on college campuses? People who reject the protection of free speech for all don’t belong in college.

Nicholas Dirks, Chancellor at UC Berkeley, has written a completely dishonest op-ed for the New York Times. Berkeley is not under attack from both sides. One side is trying to exercise free speech and the other side is attacking.

This is ridiculous:

In disturbing parallels to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the Weather Underground of the 1960’s, we are seeing a small band of violent radicals attempt—and thus far succeed—in imposing their will on Americans.  The terrorist acts that the SDS and Weather Underground engaged in are what we most...

UC Berkeley couldn’t (or wouldn’t) guarantee Ann Coulter’s safety, so her speech has been cancelled. In this case, leftists used the mere threat of violence to silence another conservative voice.

It’s a valid point. Why should taxpayers be forced to subsidize public universities that refuse to uphold constitutional principles like free speech?

One of the fondest dreams of the radical (and not-so radical) left is to undermine the First Amendment and ultimately to control speech.  Democrats have advocated the DOJ’s investigation and even prosecution of climate “skeptics,” condemned “hate” speech formally in the House, supported the criminalization and ban of “hate” speech, and...

As we mentioned in a recent Quick Take, conservative students at Berkeley decided to thumb their noses at campus SJWs by inviting Ann Coulter to speak on campus.

First the school imposed a number of conditions, then banned Coulter’s speech altogether. Ann is vowing to visit the school anyway.
