Welcome to America: Harvard Law Discovers 1st Amendment

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.)

Hmmm. So it’s first amendment out of fear. Sounds like the No Child Left Behind. Schools are required to give the military recruiters home telephone numbers of the students o they could call and ret to recruit them. Failure to give out the home number resulted in the fed govt not giving educational $$$.

Hi Debbie, I just wanted to comment quickly. I am becoming weary of our society. Our universities as you pointed out are just amoral lib think tanks, we allow organizations like the ACLU and others to go unchecked. It is close to being (if it is not already) illegal to preach against homosexuality from the pulpit of a private church. I just don’t understand sometimes why we (the people) put up with this BS. Any thoughts?
