We would all be better off if we took a step back and really looked at the First Amendment:

CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW ...

Your state can (and in my opinion should) restrict things like Islam.
Your town can (and in my opinion should) restrict things like gay pride parades.
Your employer can (and in my opinion should) restrict things like union rallies.

All I want is for Congress to know its place.

“The book, “Notre Dame vs. the Klan,” celebrated the 1924 defeat of the Ku Klux Klan in a fight with Notre Dame students.”

But only because the Klan missed a field goal by mere inches.

I’m sitting here this morning supervising Saturday detention at a high school somewhere in Alaska. Stuff like this sends chills down my spine. George Will is correct that the next step is mob action, and when the mob arrives, no doubt they’ll have a laundry list of FreeRepublic posts, along with my required reading list, which is long on demonstrating the errors of socialism and the benefits of liberty. I’m guessing these are feelings a teacher would have had in Germany in 1931, or a Cambodian in 1972, or a Cuban in 1957. Of course, some teachers did survive the genocides and totalitarian storm, but some where taken out and shot. No one said it would be easy doing the Lord’s work. I’m less scared than I am hyperalert to my surroundings.

God help us.

Odd.

You’d think “higher education” would center around the open reading of books.

If I was a student there, I might actually sit out in the open and read something like Kloran of the National Kourier Guard (Little Rock, Ark.: Parke-Harper, sine datum)--an actual Klan document--and dare them to do anything about it. And if they did, I'd sue them in court.

C-SPAN was replaying a talk by Greg Lukianoff this mroning—the source of the details George Will is citing.

A Wash DC assemblyman about 8 years ago used the word, “niggardly” at a public meeting; he had been describing a BUDGET. The word niggardly means STINGY.

Reality didn’t matter —the word gave them BAD VIBES, which is a new sin observed by secular fundamentalists.

They fired him.

The parting shot was maybe the worst —he said he should stay BECAUSE HE WAS GAY. NOT that it was in the dictionary, and known well to educated people, no.

His defense was that he was GAY. Isn’t that depressing?

The real reason is there are still KKK types around in Indiana who just don't want that part of history brought up ~ particularly if it exposes their relatives.

I'd suspect the complaining co-worker had some involvement in the KKK we don't yet know about, or possibly the school administrators who pursued it do.

Remember, DC Stephenson was the only one of them who went to prison ~ they let the others loose when the Klan was crushed.

It's not too late for a really good purge of the residual elements of the Indiana Klan, and this time no more Mr. Good Guy!

Coming soon to the rest of the country. Conservative ideas will be defined as “hate speech”, and the Republican Party will be labeled a hate group. Penalties for espousing conservatism or past membership in the GOP will become increasingly severe.
