When I was in university, I just walked past the wingnuts and ignored them. They
complain about not getting an audience. Maybe Donald Trump wants to make it
mandatory that students pay attention when they're hurrying to class or
busy doing something else that interests them. This may be a way to gin up
interest or at least make conservative speakers think that they are relevant.The reason students don't care to listen to conservative speakers
is that they remind them of their conservative parents locked in the early 1950s
when a world existed that they cannot related to today. These students have
friends and family who don't look like they stepped out of the 1950s. Nor
do they have friends and family who can relate to what these conservative
speakers are talking about.There is nothing that keeps conservative
speakers from speaking on campus except a few miscreants who come on campus and
make mischief. Very similar to the miscreants you find at Trump rallies,
responding to Trump's urging them to violent acts, punching people Trump
tells them to attack. So, who is to blame here? You can't blame
the universities since they already have rules enforcing the 1st Amendment.
Fred44 - Salt Lake City, UtahMarch 3, 2019 2:41 p.m."Conservative tater you say FOX NEWS is honest about conservative? Wow,
"yeah! WOW! Nowhere have I ever said Faux noise was "news or
fair and balanced" much less that I supported Faux. Faux is considered to be
"entertainment," not NEWS.Never have I ever said that Faux
was "honest" of fair and balanced.You need to quit trying to
spin what you don't understand. Take a moment to re-read anything I've
said and show me where I endorse Faux.Or, just show me a comment I
made supporting Faux. Good hunting.
Apparently Hannity, Limbaugh, Dobbs, Ingraham and the rest of the Faux News
Entertainment Corporation are on hiatus. The Supreme Leader’s usual band
of low information sycophants are again clearly unable to regurgitate anything
different other then the tired talking points of “Socialism”,
“Venezuela”, “Benghazi” and their latest deflection
being “Chappaquiddick”, which was 50 years ago! Give the clear
majority of America a break with these daily asinine talking points. You would
believe with impeachment proceedings now inevitable, this “ilk”
would at least begin reciting new rhetoric. Possibly begin thinking for
yourselves at some point. Country before party comrades! You’re welcome.
I hope his order protects the right to grab the American flag, hug it and give a
creepy smile. That is what needs to be protected.
Issuing a free speech order makes it look like the govt. is the source of our
rights; And, staying on this track one day govt. will think that it is the
source of rights. Freedom of speech is an unalienable right which we are
endowed by our creator.How about just enforcing the Constitution,
The Supreme Law of the Land.
Conservative tater you say FOX NEWS is honest about conservative? Wow, they
still refer to themselves as fair and balanced which is far from the truth. The
other networks report as they see fit with no false claims such as fair and
balanced. On any given show you will have 4-5 conservatives at least two
extremes for every one moderate liberal, not to fair and balanced.
The order should include the Federal government paying for the costs to protect
the right wing radicals.

So a man who wouldn't recognize truth if it bit him on the leg and who has
done his best to denigrate and stymie ability to the press to truthfully report
his actions is now trying to protect the "freedom" of his supporters on
college campuses?Putting aside the obvious hypocrisy and blatant
pandering to his base, that's really not a bad idea.Freedom of
speech is one basic foundation block of a free press.So although his
attempts are clumsy and founded on entirely the wrong reasons, this is not one
of his worst ideas.
ERB Here is more "violence by Trump supporters."Birmingham, ALGet him the hell out of here, will you,
please?” Trump said on Saturday morning. “Get him out of here. Throw
him out!”At one point, Southall fell to the ground and was
surrounded by several white men who appeared to be kicking and punching him, the
men put his hands on Southall’s neck and heard a female onlooker
repeatedly shout: “Don’t choke him!”“I’d like to punch him in the face”Trump said this in
front of a crowd of supporters, after a protester was removed from one of his
rallies in Las Vegas on 23 February 2016.“Maybe he should have
been roughed up” Trump said this on Fox and Friends on 22 November
2015“I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself
or if other people will” Trump said this on 11 August 2015, when
asked at a press conference in Birch Run, Michigan“The
audience hit back. That’s what we need a little bit more of”Trump said this at a press conference in Palm Beach, Florida on 11 March
2016. he mused that he would like to have punched a protester in the face.“If you do (hurt him), I’ll defend you in court, don’t
worry about it”Trump said this during another rally in March 2016
ERB - Eagle Mountain, UTImpartial, please show me one instance of
liberals being beat up at Trump speeches. Now, conservatives by liberals, there
are tons, including this week. Keep drinking the MSM Kool Aid.MaryMc, if

Louisville, KyIt's what came next that set the Kentucky rally
apart. First, a crowd video went viral, showing a black woman mobbed and jostled
by mostly white Trump supporters as the candidate shouted, “Get
out!”Weeks later came a lawsuit, based in part on that video,
in which the woman and two other protesters say crowd members assaulted them
upon Trump's command. And that Trump — among other alleged counts
— incited a riot.There are numerous incidents of Trump
encouraging his supporters to use violence against protesters, but you
won't find them on the Faux Propaganda Hour.You can google this
stuff but you probably won't believe it since it is Documented by the MSM
that you hate so much.
OK, I’ll bite, Daedalus. You are saying Socialism is good, what’s
going on in Venezuela is fine, Benghazi was handled correctly, and
Chappaquiddick was just a car accident. How does anyone respond to that? If you
truly believe all four of your examples prove the Right is wrong, no wonder we
can’t agree on anything with the Left. Seriously.
This is pandering to his base yet again. He doesn't want free speech. He
attacks the free press almost daily. What he says, and what he does are not
consistent. Reports on all the major media outlets are talking about the
hypocrisy of this possible Executive action. Even The Associated Press that the
Deseret News uses. He wants more free speech on campus. Fine! Then
they will be able to attack and speak out against him. Right? That is what
free speech is about, right Deseret News? Don't kid yourself.
Trump doens't want free speech for all. He wants his own version of
propaganda clothed in supposed "free speech".
The government subsidizing inferior products in the marketplace of ideas.Oh no!Socialism! Venezuela! Benghazi! Chappaquiddick!
Free speech allowed on campus - only if it praises the Donald.

What next? A Presidential order to ban on Saturday Night Live
spoofs of the President? Jail for Alec Baldwin for his acting job on SNL

There's a difference.Get educated.
