Democrats hate free speech and thats the next thing theyre set to eliminate after free elections.
Intellectually the Left always fails. Their ideas and beliefs cannot withstand scrutiny. One of many reasons they have attempted to destroy secondary and higher education
In a way, the colleges are doing us a favor. Because they are showing us what the United States would be like if the liberals took over everything.
Any non-PC speech would be more than just frowned upon. It would be classified as hate speech, punishable by criminal sanctions.
Nobody would get shot (yet). But step out of line just an inch, and you life would be ruined.
Nice early Christmas present:
“After being intimidated and distressed by JCJC staff and campus police, Brown stopped using his First Amendment rights on campus for fear of disciplinary action, removal from campus, or arrest. Subsequently, Brown and YAL filed suit against JCJC.”
JCJC filed a Motion to Dismiss Browns lawsuit for lack of standing and appreciable damages. The DOJ stated that regardless of if the case proceeds, JCJC has a freestanding obligation to comply with the First Amendment.
The DOJs Statement of Interest concluded with a not-so-subtle piece of advice; JCJC need not and should not wait for a court with jurisdiction to steamroll it into compliance. It should comply voluntarily with the First Amendment, andand soon.
“YAL President Cliff Maloney praised the DOJs action by saying, The Response from the Department of Justice and Education should be an encouraging sign for defenders of free speech a sign that the American peoples patience with censorship on college campuses is running thin. The only permission slip anyone should need to speak on campus is the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Just getting the kiddies ready for life in the “fundamentally changed” America.
Universities have evolved into leftist political bastions due to the non-stop flow of cheap money to them, and to students.
Cut off all Federal student loans.
Cut off all Federal grants and money to universities that raise tuition rates
Jews beware. Academia is becoming a breeding ground for anti-Israel activists.
I’m OK with putting college presidents in jail for creating places where the US Constitution does not apply.
Two words: Hillsdale College
“Jews beware. Academia is becoming a breeding ground for anti-Israel activists.”
Sadly, many of those anti-Israel activists are themselves Jewish.
Jones County Junior College is a junior college accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools located in Ellisville, Mississippi. JCJC serves its eight-county district consisting of Clarke, Covington, Greene, Jasper, Jones, Perry, Smith and Wayne counties.
In case others were wondering too. 8>)
Yes, amazing isn’t it.
I can’t remember the college campus site or the speaker but I do remember a recent FOX video showing the crowd screaming “FREE SPEECH!” so loudly and continuously that the speaker just left. Anybody have a link?
Kind of ironic ...
Been wondering why the DOJ hasn’t gone to these colleges sooner with all the Anifta and other groups attacking pro-trump, pro-republican, pro-life students.
In Michigan, where I live. Awesome College.
Lets see the DoJ do this at Harvard, Columbia, Berkeley and Stanford.
Theres something to be said for starting small. Get a consent decree from Podunk U., which puts Harvard on notice as to what is coming down the pike. If Harvard wants to go amicus curiae, with the junior college in Mississippi, that is their choice.
