A district court in California–of all places–has chastised a Fresno State University professor for harassing pro-life students and trying to restrict their First Amendment right to free speech.
Did you ever think you’d see that happen? I’m astounded. Permit me to go outside and turn a cartwheel. [Returns from doing cartwheel.]
In addition to making him pay $17,000 to settle the case, the judge sentenced the leftid dingbat to… “First Amendment training”… to be provided by the Alliance Defending Freedom, the conservative lawyers’ group who represented the pro-life students. Man, that’s got to hurt! It’s the mirror image of the Maoist “sensitivity training” that our stupid colleges have inflicted upon thousands of students who didn’t have the right mind-set. A dose of their own medicine.
The pro-life students, with permission of the college authorities, chalked their message on a sidewalk. Mr. Prefesser “recruited” some of his students to help him harass and intimidate the plaintiffs and erase their message. His reasoning, if you can call it that, was that this sort of non-PC speech was restricted to the university’s “free speech zone” and could not be practiced outside of it.
Dude! There’s only one free speech zone in America! Its boundaries are the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Fresno State got rid of its “free speech zone” in 2015, but it looks like Mr. Prefesser didn’t know that. Or maybe he was just feeling nostalgic for the good old days of the Great Cultural Revolution.
Whatever the case, this is whacking good news and we want to see lots and lots more of it. Force the leftids to wear the steel wool undies that they’ve picked out for the rest of us. Make ’em howl.
