The Volokh Conspiracy reports that group styling itself as the “Higher Education Council of San Antonio” has put out a statement containing this paragraph—
As members of the Higher Education Council of San Antonio (HECSA), we — the presidents of colleges and universities throughout this community and supporters — feel that it is important for us to speak out and make a distinction between diversity of thought and disingenuous misrepresentation of free speech. We further attest that hate speech has no place at our colleges and universities. Inappropriate messages, banners and flyers that are meant to provoke, spread hate, or create animosity and hostility, are not welcome or accepted.
As the Supreme Court recently reminded us in the Matal v. Tam case, there is no hate speech exception to the First Amendment. Go read Eugene Volokh’s post.
It’s past time to fire the overly-credentialed and under-educated administrative drones cluttering so many schools and replace them with competent teachers.
