Yes, and Democrats in the US Senate want to amend the First Amendment. Free speech is not compatible with radical left wing nuts politics.

Another unlinked claim. I wonder if there isn't some context involved here that webguy doesn't want us to see.

Commissioner Yaki of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights:
I guess Iím having some, a topic that Iíve been following for a number of years and it stems in part from the time that Mr. Marcus was our staff director, has to do with hate speech, hate crimes against groups of individuals on campus.

And it seems to me that there are ways that you can create a very apprehensive coordinate [possible transcription error -EV] of sexual harassment on a campus, but you [Greg Lukianoff -EV] probably would not find any prohibition by a university on that type of conduct to pass muster. Would that be correct? Ö

What about a slave auction at a fraternity engagement or a day where another group decides that theyíre going to celebrate Latino culture by making everyone dress as janitors and mop floors or a situation involving women, have them as a ritual parade around in skimpy clothing and turn in some show or something.

I mean where do you think you can, that the university canít deal with ensuring the route it has environment that is not oppressive or hostile because obviously a campus, especially certain types of campuses where thereís a lot of, where, that are geographically compact, that have a lot of working and living situations in a close area to create a campus atmosphere.

I mean doesnít the campus only ensure itself being much more, being somewhat more closed than just sort of random person on the street where thereís shouting at someone?

Doesnít that gravitate toward having greater ability to proscribe certain types of conduct that have the ability to escalate beyond what anyone would consider to be reasonable or acceptable?

It's pretty standard forum etiquette that he who makes the claim justifies it.
