Colorado Abolishes Free Speech Zones

Moonbattery

Some good may actually be coming of the recent fad among progressives of employing Naziesque mob violence tactics to silence voices they don’t want to hear. A light has been shined on the authoritarian restrictions on free speech that prevail at universities. The attention will not be welcomed by moonbats. Colorado just abolished free speech zones on public college campuses:

The legislation, Colorado Senate Bill 62, prohibits the state’s public universities from establishing unreasonable speech restrictions. The initiative received bipartisan support in the Colorado legislature and still allows public universities to impose “reasonable time, manner, and place” speech policies.

“Once we limit free speech to a zone, we indicate to our students that free speech does not exist anywhere beyond that zone. That is not the message we want to send to future generations about our core values,” Colorado state Sen. Tim Neville, a co-sponsor of the bill said.

To confine free speech to specified zones is to deny that America itself is a free speech zone. That even some Democrats acknowledge this is an encouraging sign.
