THE NEW REPUBLIC, IN DEFENSE OF DISINVITING ‘HATEFUL’ SPEAKERS. At Hot Air, John Sexton writes:

It has been a banner day for progressives who want to redefine our notions of free speech. Earlier today Allahpundit wrote about Howard Dean’s dubious argument that free speech doesn’t protect “hate speech.” Then Jazz Shaw wrote about a piece published by the New York Times which argues free speech should be restricted for the public good. For the third part of this hat trick, I direct your attention to the New Republic where Assistant Professor of English Aaron Hanlon has a piece titled, “Why Colleges Have a Right to Reject Hateful Speakers Like Ann Coulter.”

The New Republic is altering the deal. Pray they don’t alter it any further.
