Chicago University professors - leading the world in free speech ...

... or something :D

100 Chicago Professors "Propose To Exclude Viewpoints
They Find Objectionable" 

 …“It’s been quite interesting to watch this because, as you can
  imagine, there are many people who are opposed to Steve Bannon and
  wish that he hadn’t been invited,” Mr. Zimmer says. Nonetheless,
  “the students have been remarkable. The student government had a
  ‘town hall’ with the faculty member who invited Bannon.” The
  students ran the event, “and they were very clear that there was to
  be no disruption, that they wanted to have a conversation.”

  But at American universities, it isn’t just the students you need
  to worry about.

  More than 100 Chicago professors have signed an open letter to Mr.
  Zimmer objecting to Mr. Bannon’s invitation:

    “The university should model inclusion for a country that is
     reeling from the consequences of racism, xenophobia, and hate.”

  They propose to “model inclusion” by excluding viewpoints they find

    “We believe that Bannon should not be afforded the platform and
     opportunity to air his hate speech on this campus.”
