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.READ MORE
