A professor at the University of Colorado was fired by the school. His wrong doing? He spoke at a rally in support of Donald Trump.
He committed no criminal offense. He didn’t incite a riot. He didn’t attack anyone. He merely supported a candidate in what is supposed to be a free and democratic election.
But in this “woke” society, that is enough to justify terminating the employment of an otherwise. And free speech organizations are calling it out.
According to Breitbart News, “The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is calling out the University of Colorado Boulder for violating the First Amendment by punishing a visiting professor who spoke at the ‘Save America March’ on January 6 in Washington DC.”
“The First Amendment is clear: A public university cannot cancel a professor’s courses, withdraw his role in organizing campus discussions, and preemptively decline to renew his contract because of public anger over his extramural political expression,” said FIRE in a statement.
As of the time of this writing, the professor has not been reinstated.
