Thatcher in the Rye

"For the last fifteen years, I’ve been writing about the steady decline in respect for free speech on our college campuses. For those who think that dangerous trend is simply the fault of immature college students, I submit the case of Fresno State University Professor Greg Thatcher for your careful consideration. Before reading my response to Thatcher, please watch his brief sermon on the First Amendment by clicking on this link. 

"By way of background information, it was back in April that a Fresno State pro­life group received permission to chalk pro­life messages on the sidewalks leading to the university’s library. After they actually put some of the messages on the sidewalk, Thatcher, who teaches public health, confronted the pro­life students. In the confrontation, Thatcher alleged that the students could not chalk messages near the library, and could only engage in expression in the so­called “free speech area.” This is factually inaccurate as the university eliminated the speech zone in June of 2015. 

"After the president of the pro­life club explained that she had university permission to chalk messages in that precise location, Thatcher threatened to return and erase the messages. But then he did something even worse than that: He actually recruited at least seven students from his class to join him in the patently illegal enterprise of defacing constitutionally protected speech.

"Fortunately . . . "
