Trump signs executive order reaffirming Free Speech

Trump signed an executive order reaffirming the First Amendment. The largely symbolic move is meant to be a rebuke of UC Berkeley cancelling speaking events by conservative personalities after threats of violence by liberal demonstrators.

Rather than always spending large sums on security, the universities should begin teaching and defending true toleration and respect for free speech.

How funny it is to learn that Karl Marx was a free speech absolutist. That is right, did not believe in hate speech or blasphmy laws, nor the suppression of any speech at all. Wow, how far left have these lunatics become when even Karl Marx is not left enough for them?

Well, people have been going batshit insane. So sure! Maybe this'll stop teachers from being threatened for showing Jordan Peterson and encouraging discussion about it.

It’s about damn time that we acknowledge the reality of the situation. Standing outside a lecture hall and protesting the speaker for being wrong or immoral is free speech. Standing inside the lecture hall and drowning out the speaker with chants and shouts isn’t. That’s infringement of free speech towards the person invited to speak. When antifa or radical feminists scream at Jordan Peterson or Ben Shapiro so that no one can hear what they have to say, that is NOT an exercise of freedom, it’s suppression of it.

Free speech is more important than your feelings.

Colleges, "this is unnecessary and unwelcome". If it doesn't change anything, then what is the problem administrators?

Teachers at College and Universities should be required to work in the real world for at least 5 years before teaching at these communist institutions. Most have no legitimate perspectives.

IMO, you should attempt to make the titles a little more objective.

What's really sad is that this takes an executive order for the MSM to even look into that claims. Especially when they have shown the footage from the Berkeley riots over Milo

Leftist and commie dominated institutions calling Trumps order a 'federal intrusion' are the same who reveled in Obama's 'Dear colleague' overreach based on false data.
