There’s a free speech crisis brewing on American college campuses. The left is trying to label anything they don’t like as hate speech. Christianity is also under attack.

Kent State mulls whether telling someone ‘You need Jesus’ is hate speech
A Christian student leader is demanding an apology after a poster distributed by Kent State University asked if stating “You need Jesus“ could qualify as hate speech.
The public university’s Center for Student Involvement created and circulated the poster on Twitter last week. It was designed to promote an event on free speech issues as part of Kent State’s KENTTalks, which are intended to “provide a safe place for discussions and transformational experiences for our student body” and promote “civil discourse.”
Silhouetted activists on the posters hold a range of placards with messages, overlaid with the rhetorical question “free speech or hate speech?” Alongside provocative expressions including “No More Gays,” “Women Need To Serve Their Man” and “Build a Wall,” the fourth placard bears a nonviolent, basic expression of the Christian faith: “You need Jesus.”
Jared Small, president of the Campus Ministry International student organization, told The College Fix that the poster was inappropriate.
Our entire system of higher education needs an overhaul.
