So Trump is talking about signing an EO that ties Federal Research Dollars to Campus Free Speech... what that would look like... I’n not Sure,  but the thought of  Trump forcing Democrats to rail against Free Speech (And you know they will ) is as heartwarming as it is brilliant

It’s hard to imagine how this would work. What would the EO force? Do neo-nazis have to be allowed a platform in some way? Black Israelites?   Westboro Baptist?

Sure, why not ?

That's how this great system works.  Everyone gets their say, within the laws not to incite violence and such,  then the people vote for representatives who "promise" to follow one of those philosophies.

 

Relax, none of the groups you mentioned have large followings.

Are we allowed to punch, or hit with a bike lock, those folk we disagree with?

This seems like a good idea to have the President with the worst modern record on free speech to determibe what is and is not free speech on private college campuses. What could go wrong?

Pretty sure that there are already laws on the books against those things.

It sure seems to be the general reaction in Berkley when folks dare to exercise their rights.

Worse than Obama, and his going after journalists?

Much worse. Plus, have you missed Trump branding journalists enemies of the state and whipping up the Trump Loyalists to the point where some are physically attacking journalists at his rallies? Or the time he called on a private company to fire employees for exercising their free speech rights?

Do the current laws somehow not apply? Is the university involved in these attacks?
