Government punishing schools based on their speech environment sounds like it may clash with the idea of the first amendment, which is supposed to protect speech from retaliation from the government.

As a junior at a University this is a huge relief. Leftist students run the show around here and they hate it now that they are getting push back. While I am already protected by the first amendment as a conservative independent student, This gives me extra padding to share my views without fear.

Can you share some examples of things you want to say, but felt you couldn't before?

Every time I see this come up, it always seems to be about people wanting to say things that are hurtful to fringe groups, but maybe there's something else that I'm missing?

How about when ben shapiro went to give a speech at Berkeley and there where riots and he got shut down. Riots by the liberals, the suposed "anti nazi anti hate group progressives".  

University said no at first cuz of the danger and their security could not handle it. He then had to pay for separate security then the university made some other excuse and still got denied.

What this executive order is aiming for is for people like ben shapiro to speak freely and if people plan on rioting or anything of the sort, the university must put its effort in diffusing the violence and preventing it from happening, not preventing the speaker from coming. 

It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.
