New Department of Education Imposed Speech Codes Major Threat To Political & Religious Liberty

This week the First Amendment seems to be in getting a large amount of attention. From the freedom of the press in the AP story to freedom of association and political activity in the IRS / Tea Party story.

However there is in the big scheme of things a much bigger story that threatens First Amendments freedoms and could have life altering consequences for countless people that is struggling for oxygen to get noticed.

That is a new speech code that is about to be imposed on our College and Universities  that  threatens core values of the First amendment and could put countless students at the mercy of a very sorry campus judicial system.

The Wall Street Journal has a piece up today. In fact it has given the lead op ed to a person that is has been leading the charge and warning about this trend  for some time. See   Feds to Students: You Can't Say That -The Justice and Education departments issue a dangerous new speech code for colleges.

As he properly notes this goes far beyond trying to stop sexual sexual harassment or the crime of sexual assault.

The Wall Street Journal is not the only place where people are raising the call for all to be on deck for this assault. See  No Sex Talk Allowed What's wrong with the Obama administration's definition of sexual harassment.via the Atlantic.

We are facing perhaps the biggest threat to political and religious liberty on our college campuses that we have seen in some time. This seems like a issue where a broad coalition can come together and push back this threat.
