You really need to read Oleg Atbashian’s entire post about the disgraceful behavior by George Mason University that would have had their namesake rolling in his grave, but the whole thing can be summarized by this snippet:
I can argue that in our case, we were handcuffed and spent a day in jail not as much for the fact of posting the stickers, but for breaking a much more important, unwritten campus law – we confronted ideological uniformity, also known as political correctness, which in today’s American universities is as oppressive as racism was in Alabama in 1955.
I went to that campus to challenge that uniformity, not to get arrested. But if being thrown in jail will help break the cowardly silence on campus, I will consider it a small price to pay for starting an honest conversation about the festering ideological intolerance, lack of free speech, and totalitarian impulses at GMU and other American universities.
Who would have thought that a quarter century after the Berlin Wall fell that we would see an American University mimic the old Soviet tactics in defense of those who would murder jews?
