Texas Southern President Shuts Down State Rep’s Speech

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Looks like another university is unclear on the concept of free speech. President Austin Lane of Houston’s historically black Texas Southern University evidently decided that students being exposed to non-liberal speech was such a threat that he shut down a Federalist Society event featuring Republican State Representative Briscoe Cain at the behest of #BlackLivesMatter protestors.

#BlackLivesMatter is no longer about racism or injustice (if it ever was), it’s about silencing non-liberal voices.
