More on CLS v. Martinez

For those interested in the Christian Legal Society v. Martinez ruling, there’s an extensive Q&A with the Alliance Defense Fund’s David French here. The headline says it all: “You Cannot be and Equal Participant in the Marketplace of Ideas.”

Today the Supreme Court held that universities can require student organizations to require that student groups must accept “all comers” for membership and leadership positions, even if those people oppose the group’s main purpose. You can find the opinion here, and I’ve only just read the syllabus, but the court has gutted the Constitution’s freedom […]

Your public schools

A bunch of high school students from one of the local public schools got together and wrote a letter to the editor of the San Luis Obispo Tribune. After reading the missive, one wonders what they’re teaching young people today. We are writing to protest the law that targets illegal immigrants in Arizona. Amnesty International […]

Line of the week

The best line of the week comes from National Review’s Jonah Goldberg writing about the genocide supporter at UCSD. This endorsement of genocide is brought to you by Aristotle. For the record, the answer to Goldberg’s question whether the UCSD administration would cite freedom of speech and diversity of viewpoints if a student advocated the […]

Idiot of the month

The result was predictable. I mentioned last week that a couple of Live Oak High School administrators had removed five students from school for wearing T-shirts featuring the American flag on Cinco de Mayo. Well, the fallout has been predictable. The heightened police presence was due in part to rumors swirling around the school Thursday […]

No intelligence required

I’m really not sure how to appropriately gauge the level of stupidity on display here by school administrators. Five Live Oak High School students' First Amendment rights were challenged this morning when they were asked to leave school because they donned American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. Officials at the school chose not to […]

Ivory tower cowards

When a bunch of mullahs manufactured outrage a few years back over some largely innocuous cartoon depictions of the "prophet" Muhammed, hundreds died as rioting followed. In covering the violence, most American newspapers and magazines declined to publish even the most tame of the cartoons out of what they said was a desire not to […]

What First Amendment?

Once again, college administrators have demonstrated that they don't think the First Amendment applies to the campus: Two students who were threatened with suspension at the College of Alameda after one of them prayed with an ailing teacher in a faculty office can sue the community college district for allegedly violating their freedom of speech, […]

Earlier this year, tucked in the massive stimulus bill, was a sop to the teachers union in Washington, D.C. The bill effectively killed the D.C. opportunity scholarships that gave a few lucky poor children an out from D.C.'s atrocious public school system. I'm not a proponent of taxpayer-funded vouchers for kids generally. I think the […]

The San Diego Unified School District apparently believes there's little difference between Junior ROTC programs and street gangs. Marksmanship training must end on San Diego school district campuses, a split school board decided Tuesday. Critics argued that the training, part of ROTC programs, sends the wrong message when three high school students have been killed […]

Starting to watch the Wheel of Time and they screw with it 60 seconds in, suggesting the Dragon Reborn might be a woman. That could never work in the world Robert Jordan created.

Marcus Arbery, father of Ahmaud, who was senselessly murdered, had every reason to give an angry & vindictive speech, & he would have been applauded for doing so

Instead he affirmed his faith in the Kingian vision of racial equality, and in so doing restores our faith in America
