Court orders University of Wyoming to allow Bill Ayers to speak
The University of Wyoming has been ordered to invite domestic terrorist Bill Ayers to speak at their Laramie campus. Initially, Ayers had been invited to speak by the university Social Justice Research Center, but was later uninvited by UW President Tom Buchanan following protests by conservative student groups. Ayres filed a lawsuit and won a district court ruling, forcing UW to provide him with a lecture facility and adequate security for the event.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of the First Amendment, so I do not take issue with the ruling. No one should be silenced from expressing their political opinions, no matter how onerous they may be to others. However, this must apply to both ends of the spectrum.
Ayers, in my opinion, is one of the most evil men currently living. Mr. "Guilty as sin, free as a bird, it's a great country", actively plotted to overthrow the US government through the terrorist Weather Underground organization. Horrifically, he planned for the mass execution of millions of Americans who would resist his revolution after it was successful.
In spite of who he is, what he has done, and what he continues to do to undermine and destroy America's Constitutional foundation, he has the right to speak.
There's only one problem with this righteous defense of free speech. Although universities are profuse in their invitations to radical leftist speakers, they are notoriously discriminatory against voices on the right. Will this court ruling open the doors to force universities to invite conservative speakers?
I look forward to the potential lawsuits filed by Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and Rush Limbaugh, among many others.
