Richard Spencer, Alt-Right leader and head of the National Policy Institute, is being denied the right to speak at the University of Florida, a publically-funded institution. The Orlando Sentinel reports:
White nationalist leader Richard Spencer will not be allowed to speak at the University of Florida next month, the university said in a statement Tuesday.
University President W. Kent Fuchs said his administration had decided to deny a campus venue to Spencer’s National Policy Institute, citing the recent violence in Charlottesville, Va., as well as what Fuchs described as calls online for similar violence in Gainesville.
Fuchs invoked his disagreement with Spencer’s views and the possibility for violence (always started by ANTIFA terrorist groups when police refuse to do their job) as reasons for denying Spencer his constitutionally-protected right to free speech.
“I find the racist rhetoric of Richard Spencer and white nationalism repugnant and counter to everything the university and this nation stands for,” Fuchs said.
Fuchs cited “serious concerns for safety” and said the decision was made “after assessing potential risks with campus, community, state and federal law enforcement officials.”
The shitlib president then joked about how his university values free speech – while shutting down free speech.
Fuchs said UF “remains unwaveringly dedicated” to free speech, but the First Amendment “does not require a public institution to risk imminent violence to students and others.”
Imagine an obese slob saying that she is unwaveringly dedicated to losing weight while scarfing down a triple cheese burger, large fries and large Coke. No one would take such a fatty seriously. For the same reason no one takes President Kent Fuchs’ supposed dedication to free speech seriously. He has sided with ANTIFA criminals in no-platforming Richard Spencer and the Alt-Right.
