Unequal Application of Campus Speech Codes

Hat tip College Insurrection

Campus Insurrection is cross-posting this article from the Jerusalem Post describing how US universities are applying campus speech codes unequally. The writer is not completely identified but states that his/her campus is the University of Wisconsin.

The article incorrectly names UCLA as the campus where the Israeli ambassador's speech was disrupted. It was UC Irvine, of course, where I teach part-time. Ar any rate, the article is important. Pro-Israeli students must insist that their right of free speech is protected and must speak out when violations occur.
