Campus Fascists and the Suppression of Academic Free Speech

Of the many intellectual perversions currently taking root on college campuses, perhaps none is more contradictory to what should be one of higher education’s core values than the suppression of free speech. With alarming regularity, speakers are shouted down, booed, jeered, and barraged with vitriol, all at the hands of groups who give lip service to the notion of academic free speech, and who demand it when their speech is at issue, but have no interest in listening to, or letting others listen to, ideas that contradict their own world view.

    There is absolutely nothing intellectual about it, and it demonstrates that these cannot in truth be called places of higher learning as they once were.

    Only turning off the taxpayer spigot will concentrate academic minds.
