The Ohio Senate has unanimously approved a law to permit free speech at colleges and universities and do away with “free speech zones” (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/ohio-state-lawmakers-unanimously-pass-campus-free-speech-bill-professors-oppose-effort).
A “free speech zone” is a tiny piece of the campus where they allow some semblance of free speech, while restricting it everywhere else.
Opposed to the bell was [trumpet fanfare]… the American Assn. of University Professors. Speech has just got to be restricted at a university, these vegetables–oops, sorry, I mean “intellectuals”–argued… because allowing a “controversial” speaker to speak–they mean a speaker who’s not a leftid–might cause “massive disruptions” that kan’t be kontrolled by the kampus kops.
Gee. Doesn’t that give Far Left Crazy total veto power over who’s allowed to speak? All they have to do is threaten a disruption, and the speaker’s not allowed.
Let the record show that the American Assn. of University Professors is opposed to free speech on campus.
Dudes! Under the Constitution–you know: the law of the land–there’s only one free speech zone in America. It runs from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from Canada to Mexico.
Defund the colleges and universities. They don’t deserve public money, and they certainly don’t earn it.
