About "You Don’t Say"
There’s an increasing trend of speakers on college campuses being shouted down and even threatened or assaulted for saying things students don’t want to hear. And college administrators and professors are increasingly standing by and letting it happen, because they share the views of the students: that freedom of speech isn’t important when someone is saying something they don’t agree with.
State universities, as agents of government, are supposed to uphold the First Amendment because the 14th Amendment binds the Bill of Rights on the States. Any time a state institution stops or encourages others to stop someone’s free speech rights, they violate that person’s human dignity and impede the overall search for truth, which can only come through open inquiry.
This plan argues that the federal government should deny all funding (blocking student aid and student loans) to any public university that does not protect the 1st Amendment rights of its students, faculty and speakers. Schools that lose all their students who receive any federal funding would quickly change their ways and start protecting 1st Amendment rights, like they should be doing already.
