Campus Reform's Top 15 Most Outrageous Includes UC Irvine

Hat tip Campus Reform

                                                           "One person's hate speech is another person's education."

Campus Reform has listed the top 15 most outrageous stories from academia this year, and sure enough, UC Irvine (where I taught for 18 years) made the list. That was after the College Republicans sponsored a speaking event by Milo Yiannopoulos and indicated their intention to bring him back. That was when UCI suspended the College Republicans for a year over some silly infraction involving their security arrangements. After a national outcry, the suspension was lifted en lieu of a letter of warning- pending the CR's appeal. The CR responded by saying, "What appeal?" It was a classic case of outmaneuvering your opponent.
