One college bucks trend, embraces free speech and the American Flag
By Stephanie Sanchez | January 3, 2017 | Comments


The place where Barack Obama spent the first two years of his college career was the place where a 9/11 memorial was vandalized mid-September of last year. Occidental College is now responding by implementing programs and events intended to educate students on freedom of speech and the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

The school has released a list of several activities planned by the faculty and administration that will be accomplished during the upcoming spring semester. The events include:

-“A speech and roundtable discussion on the principles of free speech on college campuses, led by Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC Irvine Law School and noted constitutional scholar.”

-“A performance of ‘Defamation,’ a play that will challenge students’ preconceived notions about issues such as race, class and the law by turning the audience into the jury.”

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
