Janet Napolitano’s Clever “Defense” of Free Speech

Hat tip Legal Insurrection

UC President Janet Napolitano has a cleverly-written op-ed in the liberal Boston Globe in which she seems to defend free speech on campus.

What Napolitano sweeps under the rug is that it is the left that is blocking free speech. By harking back to the distant past, she implies that conservatives are the guilty party. Very clever.

Meanwhile, Napolitano has presided over a system where conservative and pro-Israel speech is met with disruptions and little to no punishment for the perps. On May 18, the Students for Justice in Palestine aided by “legal observers” from the National Lawyers Guild attached to the UCI Law School disrupted a pro-Israel event necessitating the calling in of campus police-after which the disruptors marched back to their usual staging area-the campus Cross Cultural Center from which they came. For that SJP got off with a warning letter! And now Napolitano heralds an upcoming book on freedom of speech by UCI law school dean Chemerinsky and Chancellor Gillman??!!

Napolitano also neglects to discuss the role that left-wing professors play in all this as they use their classrooms to indoctrinate students -all in contravention of the UC Regents’ Policy on Course Content.

Napolitano would have more credibility if she named the guilty parties and enforced and protected free speech and rules of civility on her campuses.
