Florida Bill Will Outlaw ‘Free Speech Zones’ On Campus
Political correctness is now trying to destroy a centuries-old principle. ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never harm me.’
The same idiots who run the free speech zone then control them select what can and cannot be said and punish the speech they don’t like because they can’t handle the facts because they are special snowflakes.
The idea that colleges limit free speech, and therefore free thought, is absolutely insane. It’s about time that we started fighting back against SJW’s who have been establishing “safe spaces” where only women or minorities feel safe to speak on our college campuses.
Florida is set to become the 21st state to consider legislation intended to guarantee free speech on public university campuses when its legislature convenes later this month.
If passed, the bill would prohibit colleges and universities from imposing blanket restrictions on speech in outdoor areas of campus, defining those areas as “traditional public forums” open to anybody wishing to use them for free expression, as long as “the person’s conduct is lawful.
Two Florida state senators have introduced a bill that, if passed, would outlaw universities in the state that receive federal funding from setting up “free speech zones.”
Florida State Senators Dennis Baxley and Bob Rommel have introduced a piece of legislation that aims to make it illegal for federally-funding institutions in Florida to maintain “free speech zones,” which are designated campus areas where students are permitted to exercise their First Amendment rights.
In recent years, in an attempt to combat politically incorrect speech and an increasingly tense political climate, public universities have told students that they are only allowed to exercise their First Amendment rights in designated areas of campus.
The new Florida bill would not only ban this practice but would also impose a fine of $100,000 on student protesters who materially disrupt political events on campuses. Read more Breitbart.
