Student Leaders at Tufts Reject Free Speech Measure as ‘Unsafe’

Student Leaders at Tufts Reject Free Speech Measure as ‘Unsafe’

“voted 26 to zero”

The whole “I don’t feel safe” thing is obviously sometimes just a ruse. Not safe equals things that progressives don’t like.

The College Fix reports:

Tufts U. student leaders reject free speech measure, call it ‘unsafe’

A sweeping free speech resolution has been rejected by Tufts University’s student government, whose members called the effort to broaden and clarify students’ First Amendment rights “unsafe.”

Tufts has a “red light” speech-code rating from FIRE, which means it maintains at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.

Student Jake Goldberg’s free speech resolution called for an end to campus anti-free speech rules at Tufts, including vague administrative provisos that crack down on the “use of nicknames,” “hurtful words,” “bias-fueled jokes,” “comments on an individual’s body or appearance,” “innuendos of a sexual nature,” “gender bias,” and dozens more similar examples cited in the measure.

But the Tufts Student Senate recently voted 26 to zero with two abstentions to reject the proposal, with some senators saying free speech actually endangers students, and that free speech protections make administrators’ jobs impossible.

“I believe everyone’s right to access their education on this campus is more important than abolishing the protective restrictions we have on free speech,” one student senator declared after the vote.

The student body surely knows how to chose leaders. /s/

“free speech actually endangers students, and that free speech protections make administrators’ jobs impossible.”

In a sane world, everyone who voted against free speech (or failed to vote in favor, which means all of them) would automatically be removed from any position of influence and put on academic probation.

In THIS world, they will graduate with honors and run for Congress as Democrats.

They obviously can’t understand “Congress shall make no law…”

What good little Communists they are.

Education is obviously wasted on them. They don’t deserve to attend university ~
