Conservative Society Censored for Drawing Attention to Censorship

(Before It's News)

For all their navel-gazing, campus totalitarians don’t seem to have much self-awareness. From the U.K.:

Lincoln University’s Conservative Society has been censored by its student union after it posted an image online showing that the university had been ranked “very intolerant” on free speech in a recent survey.

In response, the Students’ Union swiftly suspended the society’s social media accounts, on the grounds that highlighting the university’s ranking had brought it into disrepute.

The Conservative Society owes the student union a debt of gratitude for indisputably proving its point.

More irony: Lincoln is home to one of only four surviving originals of the 1215 Magna Carta, which was crucial in securing individual liberty. The British might want to find a more appropriate home for this precious document.
