And my tax dollars are going to fund this? They have forgotten that Rutgers is a public university. It is owned by the taxpayers of New Jersey. It has an open, urban campus. Who are they to tell me that I don’t have free speech while walking through the campus in downtown New Brunswick?
They way to avoid offending anyone. If I wish to speak out agains Islamic extremism, it is offensive. If I wish to speak out against Israeli settlements, it is not. Experience has told me that Rutgers is very biased in its fight against bias. Ok to denounce the klan, but not OK to denounce black lives matter. OK to denounce Jews but not ok to denounce muslims. OK to denounce conservatives but not ok to denounce liberals. OK to denounce Trump, but not Clinton.
If you want to see how the thought police work this is where you need to go.
I can’t wait until I have the opportunity to leave this wretched state.
If Clinton is elected she will undoubtedly do this for the entire country. First she rounds up the Tea Party, then everyone else.
