Found: A liberal dismayed over campus censorship

George Will column concerning a new book by a liberal dismayed over speech censorship on campus. Author is, “…Greg Lukianoff, 38, a graduate of Stanford Law School who describes himself as a liberal, … lifelong Democrat who … has never voted for a Republican “nor do I plan to.” But as president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) he knows that the most common justifications for liberal censorship are “sensitivity” about “diversity” and “multiculturalism,” as academic liberals understand those things…At Tufts, a conservative newspaper committed “harassment” by printing accurate quotations from the Koran and a verified fact about the status of women in Saudi Arabia. Lukianoff says Tufts may have been the first American institution “to find someone guilty of harassment for stating verifiable facts directed at no one in particular.”…”
