“It is disturbing when Constitutionally-protected free
speech leads to efforts on the part of university
administrators to intimidate and silence not just those who speak out but those who may be thinking about it speaking.
If anything, those who run our universities should be going out of their way to ensure that students know that they will be supported if they express views that may be unpopular or different. Especially at a time when our rights are threatened by a dishonest administration in Washington that is engaging in illegal, warrantless wiretapping, schools should be a place where students learn to think, speak and write critically.”
