Feinstein Defends Public Universities Shutting Down Free Speech

In a Senate hearing that took place this week, Senator Diane Feinstein defended the right of public universities to cancel controversial speaking events when they may lead to violence on campus.

“The fact of the matter is that there are certain occasions on which individuals assemble not to act peaceably, but to act as destructively as they possibly can,” Feinstein stated. “When you have a set group of people that come to create a disturbance, some of them even wearing masks or wearing certain clothing, what do you do?” Feinstein added. “I do believe that the university has a right to protect its students from demonstrations once they become acts of violence.”

UCLA Law Professor Eugene Volokh pushed back hard against Senator Feinstein, arguing that the First Amendment protects speech against the possibility of a heckler’s veto, which is the suppression of speech by a government out of concern of a violent reaction by protesters.

Feinstein is an idiot. To allow thugs to win the day can only result in thugs winning every day.

Public services only come with Constitutional policy and law. It it does not, it's NOT public. Get somebody else money to pay for it.

If she believes this then she should push for no Public / Tax money to go to these Universities / Colleges. Otherwise she is the problem with the Constitution / free speech in Tax Payer funded schools.
