Should such people not be allowed to continue to condemn themselves out of their own mouths?
The strangely one-sided freedom of speech thing continues apace.

According to the article campus chiefs say they comply with the law, in which case the law needs to be reviewed and tightened.
I don't believe there is freedom of speech, douglas, and quite right too. You aren't free to talk about the advantages of hitting your wife, or enslaving people or killing people or so on.
// You aren't free to talk about the advantages of hitting your wife, or enslaving people or killing people or so on.//

and so half the school history teachers in the country are in prison
especially those doing 1820-1840 and the abolition of slavery

Freedom of speech is a valuable freedom/right and should not be abrogated - right on Dougie....
but PP, at what subtle point does "freedom of speech" tip over into "incitement to racial/religious/orientation/** hatred?

(** insert your particular hobbyhorse here)
surely freedom of speech should only go SO far. Without becoming a police state all university student meetings should be vetted & those advocating treasonable practices should be immediately arrested & charged. It would appear that we are too soft in this country when it comes to troublemakers.
This are intelligent people, douglas. Would you like discriminating doctors and lawyers?
