I just love this! When protesters against the Bush administration carried protest signs showing Bush's bloody head on a pike (sounds like advocating the assassination of the president to me), that's ok. But now that we have a Democrat administration, free speech is bad unless it's their free speech. They intend to control the information flow on the Internet to control the debate. Yeah, right. Oh, and protests are now considered terroristic and a threat to the state... I saw this coming when I was in college.

It’s true that some of the left’s agenda could come back to bite them later. But in supposed havens for free speech such as universities, what really matters is the political views of the dean, his tenured entourage, and his contributors (first among them being the federal and state government bureaucracies) are.

A few articles lately pointed out that a possible SCOTUS nominee was all for banning ROTC at government funded institutions like Harvard. But the decisions a judge makes can have unintended effects on seemingly unrelated cases. Just ultimately depends on how consistent the thinking of SCOTUS justices is.
