Think Speak

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/08/03/university-punishes-conservative-student-for-anti-islam-tweets.html?icid=maing-grid7|htmlws-main-bb|dl7|sec3_lnk3%26pLid%3D869987482

A Christian, conservative, white guy posted online about Islam, and racial minorities.  His posts were generally negative about them.  The university he attends has a standard of conduct and they say he has violated that code.

Now he has to attend diversity classes and he has to apologize for his writing.  He is a student, not an employee.  He did nothing illegal and was not representing himself as writing for the university.  He is being punished because someone not affiliated with the school complained.

We cannot make everyone happy with the things we speak or write.  It is a fools errand to try.  The school is being unreasonable and is punishing him because he is not being politically correct.  They are forcing him to march in lockstep with their liberal political views because most progressives don't believe in freedom; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
