Why we want to make your college an UNSAFE SPACE

You don’t need us to tell you that something is very wrong on US college campuses. Universities in the nation that gave us the First Amendment and the Sixties student Free Speech Movement have been besieged by an unholy alliance between a self-raised army of student offence-takers and busybody bureaucrats, willing to ban a speaker or snuff out inconvenient thought as soon as someone cries ‘bigot’.
