    Recent events at the University of Missouri, Yale University and some other colleges demonstrate an ongoing ignorance and/or contempt for the principles of free speech. So let's examine some of those principles by asking: What is the true test of one's commitment to free speech? Contrary to the widespread belief of tyrants among college students, professors and administrators, the true test of one's commitment to free speech does not come when one permits people to be free to express those ideas that he finds acceptable. The true test of one's commitment to free speech comes when he permits others to...

    The Mizzou protest has sparked a lot of controversy all across the country even right here in our own backyard, this time in Statesboro, Georgia. If you’ve missed what’s been happening at Missouri University here’s a brief timeline: September 12, 2015 – Student government complained about the bigotry and anti-gay sentiment which gained national attention. October 4th, 2015 – Caucasian student removed from an event strictly for black students and uttered, “these niggers are getting aggressive with me” while being removed. November 3rd, 2015 – Student Jonathan Butler vowed not to eat until the president of the school resigned. November...

    Now that the adults have cleared out of their prestigious presidencies and chancellorships at the University of Missouri, the Thought Police are coming out everywhere on campus in full array, complete with fancy titles, academic regalia and the usual meaningless catchphrases of the day. For example, Mizzou is getting its first vice chancellor for inclusion, diversity and equity, whatever those words now mean. This much is clear: They don't mean what they ostensibly say. Nor for anyone of a conservative bent who hasn't yet learned to keep his mouth shut and go along with exclusion, conformity and anything but a...

An interesting title for Barack Obama's most trusted and closest adviser and 'Social Justice Czar', Valerie Jarrett.

    What kind of environment should be tolerated on America's college campuses? Recent high-profile student protests at several schools allege bigotry and intolerance based on words. Free speech is in play. But there is a stark difference between perceived bias and real discrimination. Factoring in the "urgency" created by 24-hour news coverage, the recent spate of student protests and, in a couple of cases, the ouster of two university presidents and a chancellor, belies the fact that there is an all-too-real civil rights threat on the rise on college campuses. Organized, coordinated campaigns involving outside groups, some students and even some...

    If you never heard of the term "Red Guards," allow me to fill you in. During Chairman Mao's Cultural Revolution movement (1966-1976), many over-zealous Chinese college students began referring to themselves as "Red Guards" of Mao and the Communist ideology. They were an ignorant bunch, but a deadly force with unchecked power. They believed "knowledge is useless," and "exams are harmful," so they went on strike, refusing to take classes. Initially, the Red Guards targeted their aggression at professors and school administrators. Any old grievances and frustrations became excuses to punish people who used to command respect. Professors and school...

In light of recent episodes of mob action on American campuses, the quote needs updating: When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in "diversity" and demanding "safe spaces." Demand is the key word. It marks the essential authoritarianism at work here. At the University of Missouri, students "demanded" that (now-former) university President Tim Wolfe write a "handwritten" letter of apology acknowledging his "white, male privilege."
