Colleges around the nation have turned into anti-First Amendment zones, as administrators at hundreds of places of higher learning have been actively encouraging students to tattle on their professors and fellow classmates when they speak in offensive manners.
Is this even America?
Look at this, from the Washington Examiner:
“The so-called ‘Bias Response Teams’ reviewing these (often anonymous) reports typically include police officers, student conduct administrators and public relations staff who scrutinize the speech of activists and academics.
“This sounds like the stuff of Orwell, although even he might have found the name ‘Bias Response Team’ to be over-the-top. …
“At Appalachian State University, students reported on one another for chalked messages that were pro-Trump as well as chalked messages calling Trump a ‘RACIST.’ The former were reported by students as ‘hate speech,’ the latter ‘politically biased slander’ that was ‘unlawful.’
“While students at Ohio State University reported each other for comparing Hillary Clinton to Hitler, students at Texas Tech were whispering to administrators that the Black Student Union’s tweets in support of the Black Lives Matter movement offended them. Meanwhile, the University of Oregon saw it fit to dictate ‘community expectations’ to students who had the audacity to complain about oppression.”
And for those who dare to complain about these Bias Response Team investitgations?
The Washington Examiner reports members of the team may then visit you personally and demand you clarify and explain.
As the newspaper puts it:
“Yes, complaining about oppression may bring the Bias Response Team to your dorm room to explain why your views were insufficiently polite, decent, and non-controversial.”
