‘Less intelligent’ students suppress free speech on campus: Richard Dawkins

Evolutionary biologist and contentious atheist Richard Dawkins believes the students trying to suppress free discourse on college campuses may be “less intelligent” than their peers.

“There seems to be a tendency among some students – perhaps the less intelligent – to suppress free speech,” Mr. Dawkinssaid in an interview with the Australian on Monday. “I hope it doesn’t last long.”

He added that “incitement to violence” is the only incident in which speech should be curtailed.
