Why Climate Change and Diversity Are So Urgent

On the secret probe at the university where you say it best when you say nothing at all.

It must have been horrifically awful for homosexuals, as they then were known, in the 1950s. If their orientations or preferences were exposed, they were finished. Their jobs were over. Their marriages were over. Their very lives often were over. And yet they felt a need to find others who shared their orientation. How spot each other? How take the risk of confirming a suspicion? What if wrong?

The secret probe.

Why am I thinking of this? Because I am among the political conservatives at universities in the America of the 2010s. It is a dangerous place for us. We spot others whom we think are like us. But what if they are not? What if we reveal ourselves only to find that we have made a terrible mistake? Will we lose our jobs? Our friends? Our livelihoods? We already have lost most of our movies, our television, our sports leagues, our news, our campuses.:snip:

Conservative Student Group to Collect $70,000 from U.C. Berkeley after Winning Free Speech Case

 

(CNSNews.com) -- On Friday, Nov. 30, the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), a conservative student organization, settled its free speech lawsuit against the University of California- Berkeley, an institution that will now have to pay YAF $70,000 and rescind certain unconstitutional and discriminatory policies at the school. 

Friday’s settlement guaranteed that students will be able to use U.C. Berkeley facilities on a “first-come, first-served basis” to host speakers, regardless of their political viewpoint. In addition, security fees for all events will be $0 unless students serve alcohol or handle money.

YAF spokesperson Spencer Brown said YAF was “thrilled” by the settlement results.:snip:
