Professor John McAdams, a tenured professor at Marquette University, was fired after he wrote a blog post defending a student’s right to have a personal opinion.
On Wednesday, several members of Congress introduced a resolution that would end free speech zones and reaffirm the First Amendment on campuses.
For many college students accused of sexual assault, getting justice can be a matter of luck and access to money, thanks to federal regulations that strip due process.
The student bill argues that arresting students who engage in violent and disruptive behavior would result in ‘psychological trauma for marginalized students.’
Middlebury College in Vermont says it had identified ‘more than 70 individuals’ who may have violated campus policies during a riot over social scientist Charles Murray’s presence.
This setback at UC-Berkeley will only ensure that the next confrontation is more brutal, because when rioters win it justifies their aggression.
This is just the latest example of a professor’s reputation being dragged through the mud because he doesn’t toe the line of social justice extremism.
Thanks to the attention to UC-Berkeley’s treatment of Ann Coulter, colleges should be aware that if they restrict the free speech rights of conservative students, they could face lawsuits.
This Middlebury College professor apologized not to Murray, the colleague rioters injured, or the students who wanted to hear Murray’s speech, but to the rioters who shut it all down.
The university isn’t really concerned about campus safety. It just wants to make student rioters happy.
In a statement to the Washington Post, University of California-Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof described the cancellation as an effort ‘to keep students and the speaker herself safe.’
Until administrators start standing up to protesters, it’s going to be up to students to defend free speech in the age of outrage.
Do you believe there’s an objective truth? Well, you’re a white supremacist then, at least according to a small number of black Pomona College students.
Brian Stelter didn’t intend to suggest video games caused the shooting, but that’s how it came across to some gamers, who have seen their pastime linked time and again to violent behavior.
Dear social-justice warriors: step off my game.
