It’s Not Just The President

In the wake of President Trump’s executive order last month to protect free speech or lose funding, some in higher education join the chorus:

Professors and scholars from across the country signed onto a statement urging the federal government to penalize schools that don’t protect free speech on campus by denying them federal money. Academics from the University of Texas, the University of Chicago, Villanova University and UCLA, among others, signed onto the statement circulated by the National Association of Scholars. Jenna Robinson, president of the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal; Carrie Lukas, president of the Independent Women’s Forum; and Mark Bauerlein, senior editor of First Things, also signed onto the statement. More than 200 figures have signed the statement as of Tuesday evening.
