The New Tyranny of "Hate Speech"

Political correctness as defined by the Left is the new tyranny.
A Christian student saying marriage is between a man and a woman is “hate speech.” But it’s not “hate speech” when Sean Penn wishes death by rectal cancer to his critics or imprisonment for any journalist who dares speak the truth about Venezuelan DICTATOR Hugo Chavez. 
This case concerning the Christian student goes beyond our constitutional First Amendment free speech rights. It’s also about that precious “academic freedom” that’s so touted by America’s intellectual class. Oh, I forgot: “academic freedom” only pertains to the faculty. Students need not apply.
Mark my words: The Left will go from defining “hate speech” to their next target — “thought crimes.” Welcome to Orwell’s 1984.

Christian’s speech deemed ‘hateful propaganda’

Charlie Butts – OneNewsNow – 3/9/2010
A Christian student in the Los Angeles Community College District is carrying his free-speech case to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.Jonathan Lopez had an assignment in a public speaking class and was required to give an informative speech on any topic. Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) attorney David Hacker tells OneNewsNow that Lopez chose to speak about his Christian beliefs. “And during that speech, when he mentioned that marriage is between a man and a woman according to his Christian beliefs, the professor called him this horrible name, refused to let him finish the assignment, and told other students in the class, ‘If you’re offended, you can leave,'” Hacker explains.

When no students left, the professor dismissed the class. Hacker adds that Lopez is an “A” student — “but the problem is he never got a grade on that informative speech, and in fact, the professor wrote on his evaluation form, ‘Ask God what your grade is.'”
The ADF attorney argues that demonstrates the hostility towards religion on many college campuses. The lower court in Los Angeles issued a preliminary injunction against the school, saying its speech code — allowing administrators to punish Lopez’s “hateful propaganda” — is unconstitutional. That has been appealed to the Ninth Circuit.

  1. “Ask God what your grade is”. Wow, this from a “prof”? How unprofessional!
    I hope this kid wins…

     
  2. The Left are vicious and narrow! I hope this student prevails in the 9th Circuit, which is traditionally also very liberal. Now let’s see what this circuit has to say about preserving this student’s inalienable rights!
