UCI Tries to Save Face With College Republicans

Hat tip Debra and Breitbart


A few days ago, we cross-posted a letter sent to UC Irvine by an attorney representing the College Republicans in the wake of their suspension by UCI in the wake of the Milo Yiannopoulos appearance.

Now UCI has responded to that letter in what can only be described as an attempt to save face while capitulating. Instead of a suspension, it is now a warning.

Even Fox News has weighed in.

It is clear that the College Republicans have outmaneuvered UCI by refusing to file an appeal to the suspension. (If only Republicans in Washington could be so shrewd in dealing with Democrats.) This also shows the incompetence of universities in dealing with issues of free speech. They have no clue what free speech really means.

And JVP is on the wrong side, again, defending those who disrupted a Jewish student gathering at UC Irvine

Interesting. Of course, by JVP's definition of free speech. Nazi beer hall brawlers in the 1920s were merely exercizing free speech.
