College Campuses Policing Free Speech

March 10, 2017

New York, NY – Claire Hardwick, OAN Political Correspondent

While identity politics is being used by different political groups to promote certain ideologies, Jillian Melchior, a political writer said a place where identity politics is most prevalent, and exclusive, is on left leaning college campuses.

Melchior has spent a lot of time on college campuses, and says college campuses are ironically, becoming more exclusive.

“I do a lot of reporting on college campuses, and one thing I’ve noticed is they’ve got a lot of these buzzwords that have become really popular. One of them is inclusion. So, you know, we have to have an inclusive climate, inclusion is a priority. But a lot of times, this word inclusion is actually being used as a euphemism for exclusion,” Melchior said.

Melchior said the best example of exclusion is by policing language, where they set up inclusion programs that bar certain language.

Melchior said there is a trend on college campuses to claim you are being oppressed or targeted in some way, and it is pushing college campuses further to the left while shutting down opposing points of views.

    Well either there is free speech or there isn’t free speech; there are no in between’s. The left has always been eager to censor speech and that should tell everyone what there true nature is about; controlling the narrative regardless of how they control it. As for US campuses who want censorship; they should lose all Federal funds and be dragged into court for denying individual rights guaranteed in the US Constitution, which is a direct violation of an individuals civil right.

  • OldPatriot32

    Firing 50% of the college “professors” and replacing them with centrists and/or conservatives would go a long ways to restoring political balance in our education system. Won’t happen though, administrators in these institutions are solidly on the Left; many have the hearts of true Communists. One or two more elections and the US either joins the 3rd World of tyranny, or the 2nd American Revolution will begin. Leftists pretend not to notice that 80 million armed Americans are predominately conservative or moderate politically. They will have brought Armageddon on themselves. God help us.

  • madsaxon

    Being a victim brings so many perks.You get a free pass on many things, you get a protected place, increased moral superiority. automatic membership in the brotherhood of victims. sympathy. victimhood can even help you get laid. The list is endless.

  • Lee

    Where is the ACLU? They proclaim they support rights of people. Why aren’t they suing these colleges?

    I guess they believe that you have to be liberal to have rights.

  • A marcus Young

    The DNC has made it part of an agenda to seek positions within our colleges. Now there is a majority of card carrying liberals in power, the schools prevent conservative professors from teaching there. In my opinion, this is a critical part of our national security. We need to desegregate our schools away from political monopolies. We need to assure fairness of doctrine, fairness of opportunity, and protection from radical indoctrination that would be subversive to the United States.

  • Lauren Highfill

    Someone needs to represent these students who are shut down! I have walked the gauntlet on this one. I was once told by a professor that I used a communist reference from a news article because…quote “Reuters is known to take money from communist countries like Russia.” She didnt even bother to notice the American writer who also publishes pieces in mainstream liberal media outlets. She shamed me in an online forum and I could say nothing. I have been told to avoid words like he and she because now some people dont identify as male or female and I was told I was racist because I believe in better immigration policy, and I wasn’t even born I the US! I have been told I must admit my White privilege in order to pass a class. Another professor interrogated me once to find out the real reason I was attending a Human rights Delegation in Guatemala…as if I were some left wing secret service agent trying to expose them. Her exact words were “Who are you planning to report me too”. That made for an awkward experience for us all! I was simply passionate about human rights in Guatemala. Apparently, or so I’ve learned… conservative anthropologist don’t exist or at least they aren’t appreciated in any way, shape or form. Especially not in the right wing liberal agenda feeder schools like the one I went too!

  • Cody

    so if anyone does not let u speak up tell them their unamericana and can go away

  • Rodney

    yep…a whole generation of cry babies more concerned about denying free speech that doesn’t fit the liberal bill. Well, f- em…say what you want and make act like all the nutjobs we have been watching since the horrible night that Hillary got her ass stomped

  • jenshadus

    Then students feeling gagged should sue the student government for impingement of their 1st amendment rights.

  • American Insurgency

    I think it may be time for regular folks to take over again.

  • mattwm

    The pussification of America. These liberal boys and girls are too dumb to know what free speech is all about. Someday, either them, or their children, will have to fight a war to protect it.

  • SingleCut

    definition of inclusion – a buzzword that really means exclusion of anyone who disagrees with you

  • Stephen Chock

    Campus “rent a cops” cannot stop rapes on campus, but they can stop FREE SPEECH?

  • greg12345678910

    As a graduate of the University of Michigan, I can attest that there is a VERY strong liberal bias on campus. It starts with the professors and administration who are almost universally liberal. They may not advocate their politics in the classroom, but they permit a climate toexist on campus which is very liberal. Not sure why they still need the tenure system since they all share similar ideas…

  • marcthepig

    Poor snowflakes. When it all hits the fan, they will be nothing but food.

  • TwoInchPattern

    There was so much potential in the headline…but this was a waste of web space. I think OANN can do much better than this. I grade this article F for lack of effort.

  • unknown patriot

    Its sad, but what has happened is that Socialist and Communist have gotten root in our Colleges. In fact about 4 years ago I was taking Social Studies class in College… and the whole class was based on Communism and its origin and its meaning… Really? Lets say I dropped the class. It seems that a certain person has sowed the embers of Class Struggle in this country. America… can you believe it? A growing communist and Socialist threat with in our borders?

  • B-K KnightRider

    So basically this is a meaningless opinion piece because she provides ZERO evidence and ZERO rational arguments to support what she implies and claims. I guess she is not aware that federal laws ALREADY inhibit speech in both the education and work-place environments to some extent. Speech that causes sexual harassment is only one such example.

    • Jose Arcadio Buendia

      yeah, speak out in the workplace, haaaaa, see what happens, please don’t because you will learn what lefty zero tolerance really means

      • B-K KnightRider

        Yeah, right, as if conservative/righties are not intolerant about certain kinds of speech.

        Why do you people find it sooooooooooo bloody difficult to understand the concept of treating other human beings with dignity and respect. You know, like basically what the Golden Rule says – all ten versions of the Golden Rule.

  • tom

    this entire attempt and the successes of a the liberal agenda is a multi facet and multi front war against free speech and obviously free thought are some of many tools used by the left to destroy the very fabric of our Christian nation. These tools the liberal left use as a “policy” are designed for one purpose and one purpose only and through the policy of “gradualism” they will eventually succeed if they are allowed. Destructive “leaders” have used this policy throughout history over and over again. If one reads any communist, socialist, despotic imperial,, national socialist, and many other destructive “manifesto’s.” one will see the playbook of the liberals is no different and calling these people “progressives” is an insult. These “ideas” that the left tout’s as progressive is just another lie wrapped in old lies covered with the blood of all the victims whom have died fighting these forces of evil throughout history. Adolf Hitler was quoted as saying, ‘We do not need the parents, we need the children.” So please protect your children from the death of education and the lies our children are immersed in each day at school and please get out and get involved, unless we come together and say “ENOUGH” our country will be destroyed. Nikita Khrushchev said ” your children’s children will live under communism and that Americans are gullible and you won’t accept communism but will be fed small doses and by the time you wake up you will be living under communism.” That is scary and prophetic when one looks at the Marxist education that our last president and our last secretary of state and her sexual predator husband and those who fill key positions throughout government, not to mention the commie education that is being rammed down the throats of the most gullible of all, our children.

    • B-K KnightRider

      Except there is no such thing as an absolute right. ALL rights can have, do have, and should have reasonable limitations on them – including free speech rights. Freedom OF speech does not mean freedom FROM consequences for irresponsible speech, especially when irresponsible speech is also illegal.

      • TwoInchPattern

        No you are wrong. We are “….endowed by (our) Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Being endowed by God seems fairly absolute to me (and to our nations founders).

        • B-K KnightRider

          Ideological nonsense.
          FACT: There is no such thing as an absolute right.
          FACT: ALL rights have reasonable limitations on them, even life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

          Through proper due process in the appropriate circumstances the government CAN extensively limit all three of those rights with incarceration and even strip someone of those rights with the death penalty. On a smaller scale laws against trespassing and breaking and entering for example reasonably restrict our liberty and right to pursue happiness. Laws against theft restrict our right to pursue happiness. Even traffic laws restrict our liberty and the right to pursue happiness.

          BTW, tens of millions of people believe that nature is our creator through natural biological processes. Even millions of religious people believe that God is not a stupid micromanaging puppet master and so nature creates us through natural biological process. Oh, and then there is the fact/truth/reality that the Declaration of Independence has no legal authority. The Declaration of Independence only provides the basic moral foundation for our country while the Constitution provides the basic legal foundation and framework.

  • Hater

    I have the pleasure of working on a mostly liberal college campus in southern California (It pays the bills). But more and more it really pays off to be a gay, disabled Latina woman- if you want to advance. Totally know where Ms. Melchior is coming from. Not a problem if you want to put a “F*ck Trump banner in your dorm window for all to see, but don’t even think about displaying anything in public praising him or lashing out against the libbys! Then again, I have no problem displaying my Hillary for Prison bumper sticker in my office. Don’t like it…don’t look at it snowflake!

  • FromThe70s

    The ground work for this began decades ago.

  • jenshadus

    Yea, inclusion means regurgitating what the prof says, and throwing honest debate out the window. Remember the vietnamese re-education camps?

  • Sure, Not

    A good reminder of the climate young folks face when heading off to college. Parents and relatives/mentors have only so many years to prepare them to think critically, challenge unsupported or illogical assertions, identify unintended consequences and be willing & able to defend the conclusions they draw. Some teachers help in that effort too, but I recall plenty of faculty close-mindedness in high school too.

  • Jose Arcadio Buendia

    i have a hypothesis
    1-make sure teachers k-12 don’t teach students what they need to know especially about citizenship, the concept of ‘freedom’ especially about a government that governs least, free markets, and american history
    2-don’t separate the talented students from those that are not as talented, and give them the best education money can buy
    3- make every student believe he is a ‘gifted, hardworking, motivated learner who wants to achieve and excel’ and only racism and bigotry will stand in the way of your success
    4-then they get accepted to colleges who have been lowering standards
    5-the indoctrination implicitly begins with, ‘look what your teachers have not taught you’ the kids buy into the nonsense
    6-the students do not know or realize that big government has controlled teachers with what to teach, how teach, how much time to teach, what not teach, how much time to teach specific topics…
    7-college administrators allow ‘free speech’ as long they ‘vet’ the message and the messenger and o-kay the content

  • Marra

    Indoctrination plain and simple. From day one, I went through every book my children brought home from school at the very beginning of the school year. If you don’t look through the curriculum, you have no real way of knowing what is being put into the heads of your children! It can begin in first grade! Wake up, America! Be aware of what your children are being taught. And it should be a reflection of your American values, morals and manners. If it’s not, talk with other like minded parents and confront the Administrator or principal. We have only ourselves to blame when we permit our children, even those in college, to be indoctrinated by liberal idiots. I’d rather a kid working at Wal Mart than to pay to send a kid to a college that encourages the policing of speech. Ridiculous!

  • Jaxon65

    What a bunch of subjective garbage. Not a single fact presented yet the right wing media barks and the OAN membership bleets. When the author says ‘they set up inclusion programs that bar certain language’ what school is he referring too? What is the name of the program? What language is being barred? The author claims to ‘be spending a lot of time on college campuses’ but apparently didn’t bother to write down any details around this mysterious affliction called ‘identity politics’ that is gripping American college campuses! Be outraged! The left is ‘shutting down opposing points of views’ he concludes. So here is what is actually happening (if anything at all). Everyone is entitled to voice your opinion, go right ahead… but you are not entitled to your own ‘alternative facts’. If you try to spin opinion as fact without facts or using obvious falsehoods on college campuses then people are going to push back with their own voices. Because to remain silent is to admit it as truth. The 1st amendment protects your right to say what you want, it doesn’t protect you from hearing what others think about your words. It doesn’t protect you from others forming an opinion about you based on what comes out of your mouth. Stop whining righties and join the ‘debate’! Debates involve facts…try to find some next time you visit a campus Mr. Melchior. Ms. Hardwich bears some responsibility as well for just regurgitating this without an probing at all.

    • Jose Arcadio Buendia

      you have a point, jaxon, we need facts that can be verified. scary that we can’t get facts

  • Jack Green

    So why isn’t the ACLU there to protect everyone’s right to free speech?

    • Frank

      Because the ACLU is an Anti-Constitutional tool of the Socialist/Communist party. Used SOLELY to oppose the Constitutional Republic. The ONLY time they defend the Constitution, is when it undermines someone else’s rights guaranteed by that same piece of parchment.

  • letsberealistic

    Take a baseball bat to them.

  • Matt

    We know there are alot of Colleges that are now influencing our children in activist politics.
    ( they even are paying our children to go out on the front lines of these often violent Marches)
    and this is encouraged by the DNC/Liberals and the people they have placed in charge of these Universities.
    But you as a parent must start to speak out against this.
    We the People must start to stand up and voice OUR opinion
    or continue to let this New progressive Liberal movement
    step all over our ideals , morals and Ethics.
    Now there are some who are speaking out and the Universities
    and the so called teachers(activists) are out there silencing them.
    Thru demonization, shunning, threats,violence
    ( Look at the Berkeley they are a Prime example)
    These are YOUR children they are brain washing
    and you are PAYING the tuition for it
    write letters , make calls this has to stop

    • Jose Arcadio Buendia

      yes, old-fashion american values are not what made america great because of the fearful ‘r’ word, racism, the kryptonite that stops anyone who talks sense, you anti gay, poor, immigrant, Muslim,,,basher

  • AtomicFury

    We know where the problem is most prevalent, so what we should do is mandate that colleges must represent all people instead of being breeding grounds for anti-Americanism.

    • Jose Arcadio Buendia

      yes, just like the left has played it, withhold federal funds until freedom of speech is permitted freely

  • TradeBait

    It’s past time for conservatives to use the court system like the leftists have done forever.

    • Jose Arcadio Buendia

      yes, trump is taking a page out of the FDR playbook, pack the court when you can’t get the decisions you need, can’t say i agree but my lord how else can the scales be balanced
      see the judge from Hawaii, what a joke that is

  • greg12345678910

    They shoud stop giving professors tenure. Tenure was created to protect professors from being fired for speaking unpopular views. But today most all academics agree on liberalism. So they don’t need tenure…

  • Dens

    The ‘mini me’ leftists who under the tutelage of their America hating ‘professors’ have taken over most college campuses appear to be not much different from Communist China’s ‘Red Guards’. These guardians of Marxism took thought policing to a whole new level of misery for anyone expressing or suspected of having opposing views in that Country. Of course these American lefty professors and their mouthy converts are following the same script as did Chairman Mao’s Red Guards. For them it’s Marxism yes and our Constitution no. Our entire education system from K thru College is one swamp that really is ripe for draining.

  • Scott

    The answer to this is pretty simple.

    Pull the Taxpayer handouts when they violate the laws and rules of our country, then see how long this insane mindset and behavior lasts.

    • Jose Arcadio Buendia

      great idea, let’s get people to obey the law or we pull the sect 8, stamps, wic, welfare, planned parenthood visits etc, scott. why not you can’t follow the law, neither you nor your kids get funds.

  • Randy Culbertson

    I do volunteer but I have enrolled both my granddaughters in a private school cost me a lot but I feel by the time they graduate they will get a real education and I volunteer there gladly each day, the teachers there are so much better they treat all the kids the same…….Even as a well educated man myself and many years in the military both my granddaughters are so well behaved, know how to defend themselves well and are extremely knowledgeable in all subjects. Thanks to our President and his school choice my cost will be extremely lower now and both girls will get a great education, I am a proud grand parent of two of the smartest girls and they both enjoy school and I enjoy knowing the administration and all the teachers are well educated and actually teach school unlike those kids in public schools whom wont have the same chances as both my girls will have…….yes I know its private school but at least they are not preached about things that are not needed to be taught in schools and yes even my oldest knows about things like different religions and even political ideas but they are allowed to form their own ideas about social issues, not preached one side like public schools do now……This school even when public school teachers were out protesting these teachers at their school refused to stay out and instead stayed and taught the kids about civics and why the protest were going on from both sides not just one side of it……They have five of these private schools and in the teachers and administration contracts it states that any person whom teaches their ideals to students or is caught doing so is subject to firing immediately and so far haven’t seen one case of it from any teacher………….at the rate of these schools filling up very soon public schools in our city will not even be half full as even next year they are already building four more schools and hiring qualified teachers even now for next school year…..glad this private school is available to them and many of the kids around here as I have seen it so far there are no problems nor are there any under educated kids being passed just to move them on most kids I have come across and helped there are extremely bright well educated students and seem to want to listen and learn many even ask me about teaching them self defence and even their principal likes that idea and having me teach them about my experiences in the military and all the countries around the world I have been to at all grade levels………yes I agree with you about the BS and the pay of teachers but the bad teachers whom these school systems allow to hang around even after being exposed as bad teachers are the reason why many teachers get paid so little and get no respect from students……….at this private school teachers get paid based on merit and each gets evaluated twice by two different administrators, they either do the job correctly or they get fired and so far not one teacher has been fired and like the students the teachers there actually say they enjoy their jobs a lot and from experience I can see why they do enjoy working there……..

  • “LIBERTY&FREEDOM”

    Been going on forever. Kent State during Vietnam war good example

  • Rick Martinez

    Unfortunately, it may be too late for these liberal democrat schools and colleges to reel in their teachers from spewing their liberal agendas and free-speech hatred–and even to police themselves. Perhaps the only thing left to do is “de-fund” them: NO MORE federal money for them.
    Not one more cent to these liberal dummies…until they not only prove themselves, but start hiring
    administrators and teachers who are not only conservatives, but teachers who can go back to teaching HOW to think not WHAT to think–without political correctness.

  • All American

    You touched good points like volunteering to mentor at local schools. Parent involvement. Then you take off(?)!
    In many States teachers are paid higher salaries than others. This is something that one would assume they investigate before accepting an assignment.
    Parents should be mentoring their children and setting a good example.
    Parents should stay current with their childs curriculum.
    Parents must monitor their children to ensure that school work is a priority.
    See how easy and nicely written Jay. You can do it calmly…

  • All American

    To nip this in the bud Parents must complete a detailed investigation with your teens before agreeing on a 4 year college. Conservative vs Liberal.

        It’s because to the Leftists, the left IS the middle.

  • fishfry001

    Exactly. Its already a proven fact that the left wing “inclusive” liberals are nothing more than fascists in rainbow colored shirts.

  • bucketnutz

    If the system would fix the High School education standards and practices, they could incorporate the fist two years of College into the last two years of High School thereby saving money and establishing more maturity and respect for everyone’s speech.

    • All American

      Great point

    And the ACLU is no where to be found
    if the ACLU wasn’t a Liberal Destructive offshoot

        • Randy Culbertson

          First I understand what you are saying but surgery and glasses haven’t helped not much I can do to express my opinion and facts unless I want like I stated the so called self proclaimed internet English teachers only want to comment about my spelling….fact and everyone here knows that……….I am writing this to you only for one reason and that is to thank you for at least taking the time to read what all information I have to pass on that is actually truth, whether people believe it or not I have lived most of it or discovered much of the information I give out or has been reported to me by several of my friends whom over the decades have not been able to report it without those the information is about actually retaliates against them,, fact……..So now myself and several of my retired friends whom known first hand or has the documents to show the proof, we are building cases against many of those criminal corrupt especially politicians and well be delivering to those whom we know we can trust, like FOX NEWS, President Trump, and even Vice President Pence, We are in the process of collecting more information and will expose many within our local state and even federal governments to include those in congress today and well as two past presidents……..
          This has taken me a couple of hours to write due to eyesight and I do apologize for making your eyes bleed but think all I have gone through to lose most of my eyesight…….No I don’t want your thanks or anything I served in the military because that was my best way to serve my country, now I am serving it by putting out facts and the truths if you don’t like my caps then by all means don’t read it and don’t learn the truth……..
          if I misspelled anything in this you know why but its said I have to submit a disclaimer before I can even write a comment and the only thing most of these hypocrits have to come back at me is because of my use of caps, not saying your comment did but it seems when people are not able to use their brains anymore to research the facts and their only way to attack the truths is to comment on someone elses disabilities…….All I will say to those type of bigots is they just help prove my points, and to coin a great phrase from a would have been great president “””””””””ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY” as many hasn’t served their country, and most haven’t even voted but they go out so called protest,,,,AKA riot………….thanks again for reading my post and I didn’t use mostly caps for this out of respect towards you and what you wrote here……

          • Jonquil

            That’s all well and good, and I’m glad you post. My only problem is that, with my vision problems, I often cannot read your posts without giving myself a massive headache.

            I’m very thankful that you post; I was just explaining to another reader that you have a good reason for having to use all caps sometimes.

            Much of the time I get a lot out of your posts, and I do appreciate the effort! And thanks for laying off the caps this time, I’m having a very bad eye day.

            And I do appreciate your service to our country: thank you! I say the same to my elder brother (he served three tours in Nam) and I used to say the same to my father (4 years in the European theater during WWII). They used to groan and make self-deprecating remarks every time I would call them on Veteran’s Day or Memorial Day to thank them, but eventually they stopped complaining because I ignored their complaints. lol

          maybe it’s my problem, my keyboard won’t type capital letters and i have not had it fixed, haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

      • Randy Culbertson

        jack there just for you I wont use one cap…….but if that is your only complaint then you are the problem with kids I spend many hours teaching my grandchildren and even volunteer and if I cared what people like you have to complain about my so called yelling instead of the real problems of public school systems or you just needed something to complain about looks to me like you want to be the internet English teachers once again, but facts are I have lost most of my eyesight due to my time in the military and I write in capitals so I can see what I write so people like you don’t have something to complain about my spelling ……like a great general once told someone whom got into her conversation with me and her without knowing the facts……….”YOU NEED TO GET A LIFE” ………….jack………………..

    • Jonquil

      They are indoctrination camps that charge.

  • Bamf

    Thank you OAN, for publishing stories that CNN & MSNBC won’t 🙂

    • Randy Culbertson

      I tend to agree with you 100% with that, as I find both those so called news networks a disgrace to journalism…..just like I do with the new York times……Thanks for the comment about OAN as I watch only them and foxnews anymore even have blocked cnn and msnbc so my grandchildren are not exposed to there lies and fake news and bigotry……….The funny thing is I used to vote demoncrat when bill Clinton ran but after I got military duty at the white house and congress and personally witnessed all the criminal acts going on I couldn’t see doing that anymore and now I vote 100% republican and yes from the day my President Donald J Trump walked down those stairs at Trump Tower I supported him voted for him and even support any actions he does to clean out the corrupt criminals in congress and our government today and yes I have sent President Trump many hours of video proving what I stated about members of congress and many documents to support it……..and I will tell you know took me longer than usual to write this comment because I usually write using caps because I lost most of my eyesight in the many years I served in the military honorably, I gave 27 years of my life for my country and was shot three different times so if you see a comment from me misspelled or in caps that is why…..I get tired of all these bigots whom don’t write comments about the subject but of others without the whole facts sounds like they could get jobs at cnn and msnbc lmao………if you check the comments blocks you will see where I have had to explain to these bigots whom have nothing to say other than they think they are the internet English teachers…………once again I agree with you in your comment and am sorry if I misspelled many words and not being able to see what I have typed……

      • All American

        Thank you for your service🇺🇸Wishing you all that is blessed🙏🏻

        • Randy Culbertson

          i am writing this not using caps out of respect, however it has taken time to do so……..but like many of my Brothers and Sisters in arms whom don’t get free everything and did get rewarded by being spit on had blood thrown at us…….however most of us Veteran now say too little too late, but thanks for saying that to those that serve now……….and thank you for understanding the fact that losing much of my eyesight is the reason i use caps what does amaze me the number of people don’t make comments about facts i put out there for them to read and believe if they want…….instead they only comment about myself either using CAPS or misspellings because of my eyesight and loss of it in real combat, where many Vietnam era veterans whom can claim that fact did indeed serve during that time however they were in fact those whoms numbers came up during the draft at the time and went and signed up for places like Germany or never left the USA, yes i give them the respect of serving my country(USA) but when people only make comments if you look back from a guy named Frank first he claims he is a Vietnam era vet but that doesn’t mean he served in combat even once in fact many Vietnam era vets were so called that because the war as was the draft was over before they even signed up……i don’t want anyones pity when i have to post a disclaimer about my eyesight due to military service and injuries in combat nor do i care really after all i went through by so called citizens of the USA……….When i served my country I believed in four things foremost and in this order, God, Country, Marine Corps and Family but i always had good honest hard working real Americans………yes when Obama was elected i supported him even though i didn’t always agree with him, and yes i voted for and support my now President as i have done to every president even the likes of scum like Johnson whom wanted to reverse all JFK had done for minorities in that time i still supported Johnson even though now i have found out he was a total criminal………facts state here i once again thank you for supporting my current brothers and sisters in arms but my disclaimer because of the bigoted internet English teachers and those that have nothing in factual proof against my comments they comment on the fact i use CAPS and my misspelling words grammer, i say if they have a comment or even facts then by all means post against what i have stated as I and many of my friends many whom are still in the military and many whom work for the US government we have put together as much legal information and documentation we can to expose and convict many of those in congress and whom are behind all these riots and hatred in this country…….I don’t care about what these people claim to be to me is either step up with intelligent comments or like many real Americans are say they just need to STFU…………hope i didn’t misspell or grammer wasn’t perfect but i once again respected you and sent this in regular type….

      • Bobo Brazil

        I usually write using caps because I lost most of my eyesight in the many years I served in the military honorably

        It is not the NY Times, it’s Carlos Slim, majority stockholder. It’s not the Washington Post, it’s Jeff Bezos of Amazon. The billionaires who control the corrupt modern media must be called out and attacked by name. Do not let them hide behind institutional reputations built by families long gone.

  • Susan Dudak

    From what I am seeing and hearing about as to college campuses, I’m extremely happy that I have no children or grandchildren of college age right now. I feel they are dangerous places to be at this stage of our country; mainly in the area of brainwashing. These college professors are doing more indoctrinating than teaching. Pitiful.

    • Bamf

      I graduated about 5 years ago and I’m thankful I just missed this crap.

      • Susan Dudak

        You sure missed a bullet, excuse the pun.

    • Jonquil

      My husband and I are raising our grandchild. I can tell you right now, if this nonsense is still going on at college campuses by the time she’s college age, I won’t pay my money for sending her to an indoctrination center.

      I may try to talk her into training to be a plumber or electrician at a trade school instead.

      • Susan Dudak

        Jonquil, I totally agree. I think the way things are going and how we are in desperate need of plumbers, electricians, etc, trade school is the way to go. They make terrific money. I have friends who say they don’t even know their children anymore after they are in college a couple of years; they become radicalized.

        • Jonquil

          Hard to outsource an actual trade, too.

  • Bill Jr

    Sales Of Duct Tape Sour Through The Roof As “College Campuses Policing Free Speech.” An Industry Spokesman Said, ‘We Can’t Keep Up With The Demand, Left Wing College Officials and Students Are Tapping Up The Mouths Of All People That Don’t Agree With Them. Their Claiming It’s A ‘Environmental And Noise Pollution’ Effort Along With Being An ‘Anti-Hate Speech’ Agenda Item. An ACLU Spokeswoman Said, ‘Using These Terms Will Assure Public Support Because They Sound So Caring and Nobel.’

  • Native Born American

    No federal funding for radical leftists indoctrination centers.

    The students must be the product of turning your children over to a cult, beginning with day care at birth.

    • Jonquil

      We’ve pulled the grandkid out of public/unionized school and have found a good charter school for her. So far, so good!
      Also, the charter school is religion neutral. The public school was far too eager to teach religious doctrines of everything BUT our religion.

  • Linnie

    Pull their funding!

    • All American

      And do not enroll

    • Hater

      Most of them rely on the liberal states they reside in (like California) to fund them. They play ball by unionizing workers, bringing in and funding illegal anchor babies (sorry.. Dreamers) and the governor rewards them. And then you have the private donors who pump millions into the campuses as well. Funny how those people who are “down to earth with and care so much for the common middle and low class people” have hundreds of million of $$ to throw around!

  • AtomicFury

    Unbelievable that such stifling can occur in this country.

    • All American

      Yes, however good to realize and unite against it

  • Candygram for Mongo

    Inclusive just not for right-leaning folks. Diversity except for conservative views. Tolerance except when lefties don’t get their way.

    • Jonquil

      Judeo-Christian values not welcome there. That goes for females that attend most universities as well.

  • William Wooten

    Screw em.

  • William Wooten

    Shut down all Federal funds.

  • Rick in TX

    COLLEGE CAMPUSES SNUFFING OUT FREE SPEECH BIT BY BIT
    There, fixed your headline.

    • William Wooten

      lol to true.

    • Susan Dudak

      Right on, Rick!!!

    • All American

      We must unite and Boycott these institutions🇺🇸There are many conservative alternatives🇺🇸

    • Teamwork 195

      Yes political correctness needs to be drained with the swamp.

  • Al Hope

    Tip: there are far too many free loading, subversive Marxists pretending to work for a living at our Marxist Occupied Universities…remove half the staff, so the remainers can educate our youth.

    • William Wooten

      Start with the federal funds, including Pell grants.

  • Bob Barton

    A good ass whipping would be a good inclusion for these snowflake cry baby’s.

    • William Wooten

      lol

    • bucketnutz

      That’s part of the problem , you have kids graduating from High School with a third grade mentality going into college with no social skills for respecting other opinions or the rights of other people than themselves. They have to grow up.

      • Scott

        Indoctrination, which has been allowed by those who were elected to protect the American way of life. There should be punishment for our “elected ” officials, who have allowed things to come to this.

        A good round of public executions would resolve this issue very quickly I think.

        • Bobo Brazil

          The United States has been totally defeated in the “War On A Tactic” after 9/11. The tacticians goal is for a weak group to scare a bigger enemy into overreacting and destroying their own values.

          We have been totally defeated on every front: Our predominantly Judeo-Christian nation has NOT “turned the other cheek”, NOT forgiven our trespassers and NOT embraced the outcasts and least among us. Our freedom-loving nation has NOT defended our right to privacy and NOT defended our right to property.

          We have forsaken the Founding Fathers constitutional “rule of law” model of government and embraced the communist/dictatorial/terrorist model espoused in your comment: “A good round of public executions would resolve this issue very quickly I think.”

          • Scott

            When these turds push the lines like this they should be disqualified from any State or Federal financial aid. These “colleges” are not worth going to anymore.

          • A marcus Young

            We simply need to re-program the doctrine and remove the radical agendas. WE do that. The government should step in when liberty is in danger, and step out once we have returned to equilibrium.

          • A marcus Young

            Every country has its low points, and struggles. Evil will always be trying to destroy. But we are heading for a brighter future. Perhaps, ironically, we needed a failed leader like Obama to remind us that the evil still lurks in the shadows. When good men do nothing, evil wins!

          • David Bagdasarian

            No, the liberals have perverted the “law” and turned it upon itself. Let the executions begin.

      • Tim Lass

        Don’t worry. They’ll grow up…especially when they finally enter the ‘real’ world and discover their college degree doesn’t mean half of what it used to. “Inclusion” won’t have near the relevance it once had when they’re faced with tens of thousands in student debt and can’t get a job, because they chose to “follow a passion” instead of follow the job trends. Yea, stocking shelves through the night at Walmart is where many of these knuckleheads end up. 🙂

      • Majoritysense

        That is what happens when you take God out of the classrooms and government.
        Teachers get paid well to dumb their students.
        Morals go down the drain.
        Thank the democraps.

      • A marcus Young

        Holy BIbles, the United States flag, Christianity are the devil…

        • David Bagdasarian

          and you are its disciple.

    • Jay

      Like the Herr Trump kids and all the rest of the rich kids who got everything and anything they wanted and never have to worry as daddy will get them out of any trouble

      • All American

        Your thoughts regarding this issue are in “Left field”! Rich is what you perceive!

      • “LIBERTY&FREEDOM”

        You need to stop your writing disability and get some schooling.

        • Eric

          and you need to jump off a cliff “liberty and freedom- we all know you are a muslim sympathizing troll.

      • MayflowerPassenger

        Is that your excuse for being a failure?

      • Matt

        Like all the Liberal Hollywood kids
        and Democrats Children(Chelsea)
        Gotcha

      • Wheel of misfortune

        Kind of like your Uncle Soros gets your ilk out of any trouble and pays your legal bills after you’ve been arrested for destroying property and beating old people, right?? You’re a troll.

      • “LIBERTY&FREEDOM”

        Ya and buttholes like you and your ilk doing nothing but taking the handouts that us taxpayers provide. Your the problem jay. Your views on what has been going here in the US for the past eight years has all but destroyed free society. Take responsibility or STFU.

        • Eric

          why do you always talk gay online? is it because you are a muslim sympathizer and only like that part of animals? liberty& freedom is a muslim troll. watch out yall.

    • All American

      Believe it or not “they” the Progressive Liberals are starting to push their agenda from many grade schools to College.
      It is the parents responsibility to entrust the education of their children to qualified professionals. It is also the parents responsibility to review their children’s lessons throughout their schooling years to ensure that the schools standards meet.
      Many school children still recite the pledge of allegiance. Many schools fly our flag proudly in each classroom. Other schools do not.
      Many schools teach the history of religion while others teach one and it is not always Catholic.
      We must be cognizant of who is educating and the teachers agenda.

    • Eric

      SO TRUE.

    • Jose Arcadio Buendia

      the old days are gone, lefties are violent protesters, and righties just dream of the good-old–butt-whoopin days, haaaaaaaaaaa. and the left claim the righties are the hawks, haaa, no?

  • Recapitate

    First amendment violations should apply to any school of higher education that is publicly funded
    or private schools of higher education that accepts any government grantssubsidy.

    K-12 should be excluded, but parents should be given a means of communicating with other parents so they can organize against abuses.

    • attli

      Agreed.

    • Bobo Brazil

      First amendment violations should apply to any school…

      First amendment violations only apply when the government tries to impose prior restraint or actually jails/fines someone for speech.

      K-12 should be excluded…

      No. K-12 is the government. Only the government can commit a First Amendment violation. Why include colleges and then exclude the government??

      …but parents should be given a means of communicating with other parents so they can organize against abuses.

      What’s wrong with their email? Also, if my kids’ public school (aka the government) gives my email to any other parent without my say-so then I’m gonna be in that principal’s face, pronto.
