When I was a student at the Institute, it was a very conservative campus, sure there were leftist Professors, like the guy I had who wore a tye-dye shirt every single day and spoke of his love of the liberation earned in the 60’s, but abuses of student’s political freedoms were non-existent. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case as explained in several articles by Mike Adams (no not that Mike Adams, but a Professor at UNC Wilmington), here, here and here. Adams yesterday asked people to contact Governor Perdue about all of this, and today, Neal Boortz has discussed this as well.
During the 2004 Legislative session, Senate Resolution 661 passed the Senate but was killed in the House, calling for an Academic Bill of Rights to protect intellectual diversity. Perhaps it’s time to revive that proposal.
