The DoJ and several States are moving to protect free speech on college campuses, with three States moving to pass legislation explicitly for the purpose, and ten others with legislation already pending.
Liberals and their Progressive-Democrats object.
Many Democrats say the Constitution already protects free speech, and that states have no need to micromanage how colleges handle student demonstrations and speakers.
This is just cynical, though. Or, 8th-grade Civics wasn’t a safe space for them, and they were triggered into not listening. These Progressive-Democrats are ignoring the fact that the mere existence of our Constitution is no protection at all; it must be actively enforced.
Many also object to the penalties some measures are calling for, such as fining or firing—in the case of professors and other college employees—those who are deemed to have deprived the free speech rights of a person or group.
No, we can’t hold Liberal professors or others favored by Progressive-Democrats accountable—those folks are special.
