Two Years Since The Cal Poly Debacle Ended

I remember this story.

The ACLU can defend Nazis who wanted to march through Skokie; FIRE defends people like the defenseless Steve Hinkle, who was subjected to university-sponsored, -sanctioned, and -enforced harassment.

It ended two years ago this month.

Thank God for organizations like FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.

It never ceases to amaze me how the ACLU will defend the most outrageously overstated of claims, yet won't even discuss real Freedom of Speech issues. I don't think their is a college campus or even high school campus in the nation where you can actually express independent ideas without fear of retribution. Of course, that freedom does come with limitations, but strangely enough, the ACLU will defend people who want to spout pornography or propoganda aimed at liberal causes. Maybe they should remove the "A" from their name. And look up what the word "civil" really means.
