Well, Falk has succeeded in placing Williams dead last in viewpoint diversity:

while the African-American student that Falk unceremoniously shut down, Zach Wood, testifies on Capitol Hill:

His will be a tough act to follow!

Indeed! The testimony should be interesting.

“Neither students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.”

Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District 393 U.S. 503 (1969)

https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/393/503/case.html 

The court’s 7–2 decision held that the First Amendment applied to public schools, and that administrators would have to demonstrate constitutionally valid reasons for any specific regulation of speech in the classroom. 

 

NB.  I just got a police warning  about Sunday parking in Portland so what do I know about the inclusion of the word ‘public’ in the Tinker judgement. I would think that support of the college from public/tax sources would meet the hopefully broad definition of the word.

 

Yet another poster note. The Daily Signal, the on-line publication of the Heritage Society cited in a comment below, has chosen a masthead name that has unfortunate echos:

As an olde propagandist/brandguy, I am interested in the typeface used for the masthead of Signal:
