We traded in a Constitutional scholar for this guy.

hate speech isn't free speech.

I'm concerend he might realize how badly he is losing and let the guys that want to fire the missiles do so.

How the fark would this even work?

Can't wait see how this plays out for professors who support BDS.
 
2019-03-02 04:16:34 PM  
Christ, what a Trump.

He wants to force colleges and universities to give platforms to Nazis and Trumpers.
 
2019-03-02 04:45:22 PM  
Does that include speech saying that his speech is wrong?
 
2019-03-02 04:53:43 PM  
Can we still punch Nazis?
 
2019-03-02 05:05:06 PM  
liberty university will no doubt be given an exemption
 
2019-03-02 05:18:04 PM  
That's... not how free speech works. that's not how it works at all.

FTFA: "He took a punch for all of us," Trump said.

Well, Nazis SHOULD be punched.
Hard.
Repeatedly.

So how many scaramuccis til it gets struck down
 
2019-03-02 05:47:26 PM  
50/50 chance that this is as much a total lie as the other off-the-cuff promises he made during speeches, like a 10% raise for the troops. This one's vague, difficult to enforce, and would turn to dust as soon as a legal challenge hit it.
 
2019-03-02 05:48:35 PM  
Soooo, he wants them to set up free speech zones?
 
2019-03-02 05:49:26 PM  
The GOP is willing to do anything to disupt learning and shoulder students with the increased cost of more security.

Dead for Tax Reasons: liberty university will no doubt be given an exemption


I think federal funds are mostly for research. Don't need to do research to be sure the earth is 6,000 years old and the gays cause hurricanes.
 
2019-03-02 05:51:26 PM  
His executive orders are meaningless. Idiot.
 
2019-03-02 05:51:35 PM  
Nazism, Fascism, Racism are not free speech.

Anything espousing hate, bigotry, or fear is anti-American. Fighting hate is our Civic Duty.

Isn't this the same cat who asked why SNL is allowed to make fun of him last week?
 
2019-03-02 05:52:23 PM  
2 years and still no Executive Order outlawing cancer.
 
2019-03-02 05:52:38 PM  
And the nazi plague of policies intended to give a platform to fascism continues it's march.

The fark right wingers reading this are masturbating to their monochromatic flag decals and punisher stickers.

If only there existed some type of list of basic rights that people that lived in this country could expect to have.

If such a thing existed, this would for sure need to be on it. Like, right near the top.

So the chocolate ration is increasing from 20 grams to 15 grams?

Double Plus Good

Don't demean kitties
But yes

I'm waiting for the follow-up announcement where we learn that Big Dick Toilets are a form of speech.
 
2019-03-02 05:54:21 PM  
I'm hearing more and more about this war with Canada
 
2019-03-02 05:54:41 PM  
All antifa Conrads sign up to speak at conservative universities...and be sure to mention the second amendment.
 
2019-03-02 05:55:20 PM  
Huh? Seems damn far-reaching for an EO. Does the executive branch control such funding? That seems extra stupid.

I don't understand how such a thing can even be demanded...

But I can easily see how it could backfire. If they gotta let everybody speak, well hell, let's all go speak.

I am not at liberty to discuss it further

Those people are fine as long as they include some math in their speeches:

I'd say it's ironic that our first black president was followed by our first white supremacist president, but we all know Trump isn't the first.

/ hopefully the last though
 
2019-03-02 05:57:30 PM  
SCOTUS rulings in the past supported the concept that freedom OF speech also means freedom FROM speech - meaning you don't have hear things you don't want to.

Not anymore. Thanks conservatives.

He managed to be more supremacist than Wilson
That takes doing

Performance art is considered speech.

I'm sure Trump hasn't thought this one through entirely.

"And here we have the classic 'Nazi wailing in pain' piece of performance art... hold up there campus police, this is 'art' taking place".

GREAT!  YOU PATHETIC PIECE OF SCHITGIBBON EXCREMENT AFTER IT ATE A SUN BLEECHED
MARMOT OR SOME OTHER MIDSIZED RODENT WHO SPENT TOO MUCH TIME IN THE SUN, PROBABLY BECAUSE IT DIED AND THEN BECAME DESICATED LIKE YOUR SEPTIGENARIANS SUN WORSHIPPER FANATICS WHO SUPPORT YOU BECAUSE THEY ARE COGNITIVELY IMPAIRED FROMTOO MUCH SUN AND NOT ENOUGH HYDRATION

So what happens when a school turns away some extremist anti-Israel group or some anti-evangelical group?

Man who makes everyone that works for him sign a NDA takes up mantle of Free Speech Warrior.
 
2019-03-02 06:01:56 PM  
When a Conservative says "Free Speech"

What they mean is "MANDITORY LISTENING"

To them only.
Forever.
 
2019-03-02 06:04:18 PM  
Freedom of speech isn't freedom to have a platform, you fascist piece of Cheeto-dusted horse shiat.

We have that already. The problem is lately, several schools have forgot that it exists.  Just because you may label something hate speech or bigotry, does not make it so.  Opinions are like a-holes, everybody's got one, yours is not special.
 
2019-03-02 06:06:22 PM  
Such premium bullshiat should gift wrapped in elegant wrapping papers with bright ribbons rather than spewed out of the mouths of morons.
 
2019-03-02 06:06:37 PM  
Freedom of speech is not a guarantee to a platform. You are always free to walk your soap box down to the park and yell like all the other crazies.
 
2019-03-02 06:06:43 PM  
Let's say this goes through and stands up in court.  So the plan is to withhold funding for research unless alt-right groups are given a safe space?

I'm sure research universities outside of the US will appreciate the influx of talent.

This is some extremely stupid nationalistic dick-stepping right here.

Also like assholes, people have no obligation to give you a platform to display yours.

Paging the Satanic Temple - please report to Liberty University for a rousing conference.

Affording a constant steam of logic is what they do.
