You know those pronouncements we always hear emanating from the mouths of university deans and college presidents? The ones about how universities are the bastions of free speech, the open range of ideas.
Don’t believe it . . . until they give unfettered free access to military recruiters and their free speech.
Harvard Law School apparently just discovered the First Amendment and will allow the military to recruit there.
But it’s not out of the goodness of the elitist Crimson ivy-heads’ cold hearts. It’s because the school might lose federal grants and funds–an issue soon to be decided by the Supreme Court.
Remember, John LeBoutillier got it right with the title of his book. Harvard Hates America. And so do the other universities that have yet to follow Harvard Law’s current lead.
(Full, proud disclosure: My father is an Army veteran, and my great-uncle was a career Army man. My cousin, an Air Force Academy grad, recently returned from serving in Iraq.)
