U. of Virginia Headed for Lawsuit Over Student’s Speech Rights

The Rubber Room. – Fred Klonsky

You have to be crazy to ask questions at a university!

A judge has ruled that a student can sue the University of Virginia for trying to cancel his First Amendment right to free speech (https://nypost.com/2021/04/08/virginia-student-can-proceed-with-lawsuit-over-panel-confrontation-judge/).

See, they were having a panel on “microaggression,” and a second-year student had the bad manners to ask some questions. Questions! At a university! Whoa! And hard questions, at that–like, what exactly is microaggression, who needs to be protected from it and who doesn’t, etc., etc. Five whole minutes he consumed! And the lecturer was so rattled, she went crying to the looniversity authorities–who suspended the student and advised him to check himself in for psychiatric evaluation–because anyone must be mad, to question the dogma of microaggression. Stark, staring mad.

When the student didn’t go quietly to the rubber room, the authorities expelled him. So he sued them on a laundry list of charges; and most of them the judge threw out, but the suit over the erasure of the plaintiff’s free speech rights will go forward.

We pray he is awarded punitive damages steep enough to make the whole university howl. People need to be fired over this. There should be no place in America that runs just like it was the Soviet Union circa 1970. Including our colleges and universities.

Truly, we are “educating” ourselves to death.

  1. Apparently, there are people that feel so entitled that anything which could even possibly make them uncomfortable is considered a micro aggression. No one will ever achieve such a state, and life would be pretty bland if they did.
