Republican Floats Cutting Funding to Schools That Limit Free Speech

“I think there is a bill out there”

This is an excellent idea. Why should schools receive tax dollars if they can’t or won’t defend free speech?

The Daily Caller reports:

Republican Rep Floats Cutting Funding From Schools That Limit Free Speech

Florida Republican Rep. Francis Rooney, a member of the Education and the Workforce Committee, suggested Tuesday night that members may consider restricting funds from universities that limit free speech rights on campus.

“I think there is a bill out there to not fund the University of California at Berkeley for what they did. And I think it’s certainly worth considering just like the idea of not funding sanctuary cities,” Rooney said on “Patriot Tonight” on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel.

Following violence early in the year that broke out on the campus of UC Berkeley because of protests against libertarian provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, President Donald Trump tweeted, “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”

Elected officials take an oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”. I presume that includes the First Amendment. It therefore is entirely logical for them to defund organizations that will not defend the First Amendment.

Secretary DeVos has a pen and a phone. Secular schools that do not support academic freedom or freedom of speech should lose their accreditation.

It will be fun to watch the liberals twist themselves into knots trying to defend the liberal fascism found on college campuses.

Yet, they will try, or is the phrase now “they persisted….?”
