UC Irving find themselves in the middle of controversy that they helped create.
So, on the 2nd of June Milo Yiannopoulos was invited to UC Irving to speak to a group of college students.
Now the college republican group has been hit by ‘sanctions‘ against them. Their “privilege to book event space through Student Center and Events Services has been revoked through the spring 2017 quarter” as a way for the college to protest the groups activities.
The reason the college is doing this, the republican group was guilty of a policy violation, they failed to give proof of insurance for the security team.
For this, they have their basic free speech rights revoked for a year.
No, this is a thinly-veiled attempt by the far left wing to stop opposition on college campuses. If this was a liberal group they would have gotten a pass with nothing done. But because its a conservative group, the left must limit their ability to get their message out to the other students.
Its sad when a college, a place where ideas should be expressed and debated, one side is told to shut up and forced to shut up.
