College Students Getting Punished Left and Right for Criticizing Black Lives Matter

“number of students being disciplined for exercising free speech on college campuses has skyrocketed in recent months”

Across the country, college students are finding out that you’re not allowed to speak out against Black Lives Matter. You can badmouth Trump all you want, but BLM is off-limits.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Students Report Unprecedented Free Speech Violations as Schools Punish Critics of Black Lives Matter

The number of students being disciplined for exercising free speech on college campuses has skyrocketed in recent months as schools crack down on criticism of Black Lives Matter, according to a legal nonprofit that offers free assistance to students.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), which defends free speech on college campuses, says that it has seen an unprecedented number of First Amendment violations amid the ongoing wave of racial protests. Students and faculty can submit alleged violations of free speech to the nonprofit to ask for legal help or advice. This summer, according to FIRE’s Adam Steinbaugh, “a significant portion of incidents” had to do with students getting in trouble for commenting on Black Lives Matter or related racial issues.

“Where there is conflict and controversy, censorship follows,” Steinbaugh said in a statement. “A significant portion of incidents are borne from the heightened political and social tensions accelerated by the homicide of George Floyd.”

FIRE reviewed 575 cases between June and August, surpassing its average of 149 summer case reviews. The organization does not respond to every request for legal assistance, though August 10 marked the group’s 100th letter of concern to an institution this year, bypassing its previous annual record of 83 letters. During an online event on free speech, executive director Robert Sibley said reports are still coming in at an increased rate as schools return to session.

It’s time for the white students to stop cowering. Write lists of demands and present them to the dean(s). Occupy a few offices. Demand separate facilities, just like those provided for the Exalted Minority.

Sue, sue, sue.

That “word” will never go away. It is a choice that the stupidest among them make. Most persons of African ancestry do not make that choice. The media has no interest in covering the vast majority of ordinary Americans.

They feast of freaks.

BLM is a political organization affiliated with the Democrats. Very clever to make criticism of them a hate crime. Clever but evil. They are also promoting the killing of cops. I think we should be able to speak out against that.
