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.
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.
