Censorship In Seattle

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 11, 2017

         THIS IS HOW BAD IT HAS GOTTEN IN ACADEMIA, A PLACE ONCE NOTED FOR ALLOWING MANY VIEWPOINTS SO STUDENTS COULD MAKE UP THEIR OWN MINDS.

         THE DEAN OF SEATTLE UNIVERSITY’S LAW SCHOOL HAS REVOKED SPONSORSHIP OF A FEDERALIST SOCIETY EVENT. THE REASON? IT MIGHT BE “HARMFUL” TO MINORITY STUDENTS TO HEAR A CONSERVATIVE VIEWPOINT.

         THIS IS NO JOKE, EXCEPT THAT IT IS A JOKE FOR THOSE WHO PROMOTE TOLERANCE, ACADEMIC FREEDOM AND INCLUSION. THIS IS REALLY INTOLERANCE, ACADEMIC PROPAGANDA AND EXCLUSION.

         THE FEDERALIST SOCIETY FAVORS ORIGINALISM WHEN IT COMES TO THE CONSTITUTION. ITS MEMBERS WERE PREPARING A DEBATE ON IMMIGRATION. A DEBATE! ISN’T THAT PART OF WHAT ACADEMIA SHOULD ALLOW, AS OPPOSED, SAY, TO TOTALITARIAN COUNTRIES WHERE ONLY ONE VIEWPOINT IS TOLERATED?

         THIS KIND OF CENSORSHIP IS NOT UNIQUE TO SEATLLE’S LAW SCHOOL. IT IS TRENDING ACROSS THE COUNTRY. MY QUESTION IS: WHY DO PARENTS PAY LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY TO SEND THEIR CHILDREN TO SCHOOLS LIKE THIS WHERE THEIR FAITH, VALUES AND THE NATION’S HISTORY WILL BE SCRUBBED FROM THEIR MINDS BY BRAIN WASHERS? I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
