If there were any remaining doubts in your mind… let this story serve as proof that free speech is officially dead on college campuses.
The vice president of the University of Houston Student Government Association (SGA) has been suspended after a furious reaction to her social media posting that #AllLivesMatter. University of Houston (UofH) SGA Vice President Rohini Sethi received a 55-day suspension along with other disciplinary actions from the student government board after she made a Facebook post that said, “Forget #BlackLivesMatter; more like #AllLivesMatter.”
Sethi wrote a long and heartfelt apology on social media to her fellow students, but she got suspended anyway. But it didn’t stop there.
She must also attend a Libra Project diversity workshop and attend at least three cultural events per month. She is required to write a “reflection letter” and make a public presentation to the September Senate meeting.
The icing on the cake?
Sethi’s comments saying #AllLivesMatter occurred shortly after the Texas Tech University Black Students Association made a controversial tweet supporting #BlackLivesMatter and saying that white lives and police lives do not matter, Breitbart Texas reported earlier this month.
The reality is, there is a double standard on college campuses. If you are communicating a message that advances the progressive agenda, you get a free pass. If you are a free thinker on campus and dare to disagree, you will be oppressed.
Right now, all voices don’t matter in higher education.
