Hold The Presses! College is for “freedom of inquiry…”

UPDATE: Northwestern State in Louisiana lets students have free speech two hours a week!Image result for schedule of free speech

A public university in Louisiana has a speech code that permits students to express their beliefs freely for two hours per week at three predetermined locations.

The Northwestern State University policy requires students to apply 24-48 hours in advance before holding a public demonstration or assembly, and limits such activities to “one, 2-hour time period every 7 days, commencing on Monday.”

Public demonstrations are limited to three locations on campus: the Student Union Plaza, Prather Coliseum East Parking Lot and a so-called “Green Space between CAPA and Varnado Hall.”


The Dean of Students at the University of Chicago says no safe places, trigger warnings and if we invite a controversial speaker, we will let them come and speak.

Well done.  Now, make it stick.

    Allan “Closing of the American Mind” Bloom must be cheering his old post from Heaven. Or whatever the ancient Greek equivalent is.
