New Report Shows Almost ALL Colleges Restrict Free Speech. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education issued a report recently showing that 9 out of 10 colleges are restricting speech to some degree.
While the trope tends to be that the far left and social justice activists are the ones causing this problem, often they are victims of these policies as well. A story from Vox showed that of faculty who were fired from a College for speech it was mostly liberal identified staff.
Why then does mainstream media and the left claim there is no free speech crisis? Well for one whether there is or is not a crisis is an opinion, but it is likely just tribal.
Conservatives have been complaining over restrictions on speaking events and it would seem like the left wants to deny them this claim. But in the long run, the defense of speech may actually benefit the right.
