College GOP Group Loses Recognition for Anti-PC Stunt — 04/20/2007
The student senate at a Rhode Island college has drawn fire for disbanding the school’s Republican group after the group refused to apologize for a satirical stunt designed to highlight political correctness on American campuses.
The Republican group has been disbanded because they would not make a “forced” apology denying their beliefs and concerns. Freedom of Speech anyone? This is absolutely ridiculous and should be rectified as soon as possible. This group did nothing wrong and this incident just goes to show the deep bias found on college campuses these days. I thought this was a free country. I thought college was meant to teach people “how” to think, not “what” to think. If colleges are only going to support liberal views and condemn and shut down opposing viewpoints then they should be shut down too. They have outlived their purpose and should be closed or completely revamped. Ann Coulter believes that public schools and many colleges and universities are just liberal indoctrination machines. With stories like this everywhere across the country, I am starting to agree. It’s definitely time to rethink Home Schooling and Private Schools.
