Political Correctness Looks to Scalp Illini Student

It seems that the University of Illinois doesn't see the need to allow constitutionally protected speech by its students. Nor does it seem that the school's administration can tell the difference between a joke and a threat. Unfortunately, such scenes at public universities across the country routinely show that our best and brightest are not running our institutions of higher learning.

Lucky for those of us who enjoy freedom and celebrate its inclusion in the United States Constitution, there are groups like the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), a group I have long supported. They have come to the aid of the student targeted by the politically correct University of Illinois administration. One thing that I have learned in my dealings with FIRE over the years - FIRE rarely loses.

Read about the incident from FIRE's perspective.
