Over the past few years, college campuses have been a haven for Cultural Marxist and other anti-free speech activism that intimidates anyone to the right of Stalin. One GOP congressmen thinks congress should consider cutting funding to schools that don’t support freedom of speech. Rep Francis Rooney (R) of Florida said in a recent interview that congress should look into colleges that promote an atmosphere of anti-free speech.
The Daily Caller reported:
“I think there is a bill out there to not fund the University of California at Berkeley for what they did. And I think it’s certainly worth considering just like the idea of not funding sanctuary cities,” Rooney said on “Patriot Tonight” on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel.
Rooney went on to say, “It’s certainly worth considering cutting back funds federal funds to schools that don’t believe enough in our Constitution and our free speech to defend it.”
Following violence last March that broke out on the campus of UC Berkeley because of protests against libertarian provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, President Donald Trump tweeted, “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”
Finally, the President may have a partner in congress that is willing to stand up to the crazy leftists that have been corrupting our best and brightest for almost 40 years.
