Selective Outrage Over Free Speech Week in Education

Selective Outrage Over Free Speech Week in Education

Your weekly report on education news.

The double standard on free speech in education is maddening. Consider what the left finds acceptable:

And what the left does not want to allow…

And when did this become acceptable?

The side that supports freedom is making some gains.

Yet this is where we are.

A story in two parts.

There’s not enough political balance.

Good for him.


This is far too common.

Political intimidation, plain and simple.

Safe spaces are still a thing?

Oh goody.

This sounds like the premise of a sitcom.


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Made-up outrage. The right is stupidly accepting the woke politeness rules of the left.

There ought to be more offensive speech, not less.

If we are not outraging the left now, we may not get a chance again and it will be too late.

Collin College fired a leftist professor for advocating leftist causes. I took a class there a few years ago and followed this, which is the only reason I know. I don’t think she should have been fired, but just saying she ain’t Ben Shapiro.

And he’s a RINO to boot!

Philosophies of divergence (e.g. liberalism) are notoriously scalped from ethical (i.e. relativistic) religious (i.e. behavioral) cloth.

Of course there is selective outrage. If we all stuck together we wouldn’t be in this mess.

Consider the Democrats:

Have you ever heard of a never-Obamar?
How about a never-Biden?
Or a never-Fetter?

Have you ever hear of Democrat in Name Only?
Have you ever heard of a Democrat nominee who
pretended to be liberal, but later turned out to be conservative?

    Yes, I have heard of most of those things.

    Never-0bamas were called PUMAs.

    I don’t know about Never-Bidens; he was the inoffensive compromise “at-least-he’s-not-Trump” candidate. And I’m not in PA, so while I’m sure there are many who would never vote for Fetter I don’t know whether they have a name.

    But the rest of your list? Absolutely. There are many of these. Does the term “blue dog” mean nothing to you? Or “boll weevil”?

Shapiro with his Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Adonis physique would scare the heck out of me too.
