For conservative college students who are worried about being railroaded, attacked or silenced if they dare express a non-PC thought, someone now has your back. A non-profit legal group called Speech First is offering what might be considered low-cost free speech insurance. They say if a member’s First Amendment rights come under attack on campus, they will stand by you in support every step of the way: on campus, in the media, and in court. It’s all covered by the membership fee of only $5. They say talk is cheap, but these days, free speech usually costs you a lot more than that.

You can find out more about Speech First at the link, along with what may be the most surprising fact of all: the group was founded by a former activist for the ACLU. That might be why they don’t specify that they’ll defend only conservative speech: if your liberal speech is under attack by conservative college administrators, they will defend you on that, too.

But somehow, I can’t imagine that that would cost them more than $5 a year.

    This is not about the same thing exactly, but I wish someone would look into the censorship being used against Christians and Conservatives on Facebook and YouTube. It is getting to the point of ridiculous. Many times I can just click on Comment on Facebook or not even click on that but just put my cursor on the reply line and the whole message just disappears. Is that not illegal when it is so noticeable what they are doing?

    Mike, You are a voice of reason in a sea of untruths, half-truths, and down right lies. Your daughter is a chip off the old block. She is amazing up there at the lectern day after day. Tell her there are a lot of people rooting for her out there... Ignore those untruths, half-truths, and down right lies. A big question that my friends and I all wonder about is: " Why has Hillary Clinton not been prosecuted yet?"

    Dear Mr. Huckabee: I read your news briefs daily. I enjoy fox news and occasionally entertain myself with the liberal talk shows where I get my daily dose of laughs and disdain. But I am now in my 6th decade and have developed a reasonable brain to sift through the "bull" our populace is handed by the liberal media and ideologues. How can we help our young people learn to think for themselves as opposed to the teachings of socialist mind managers we call teachers and professors? We have lost our way of critical thinking and reasonableness! I hold places like Hillsdale College in high regard. Why do we not have more colleges and universities of similar nature?
