(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – When the student newspaper of the University of Virginia, an institution of higher education founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson, calls for the canceling of a speech by a former Vice President of the United States of America, there can be no doubt that the American education system is in crisis.
But that is precisely what has happened.
As Fox News reports in “UVA student newspaper criticized for arguing against a campus visit from Mike Pence, ‘unjustifiable’ speech“:
“The University of Virginia’s student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, recently published an editorial board piece that said they don’t ‘condone’ former Vice President Mike Pence speaking on campus and argued against what they deem ‘unjustifiable’ speech.
“‘We refuse to condone platforming Pence,’ they wrote, arguing that the former vice president’s beliefs threaten ‘the well-being and safety of students.’ The editorial board said the university’s ‘silence’ was ‘deafening’ and shouldn’t be mistaken for neutrality.”
Now ask yourself this: What could Mike Pence, who has spoken on numerous college campuses since leaving the Vice Presidency in January of 2021, possibly say that would threaten “the well-being and safety of students”?
That was a rhetorical question as the answer is obvious. There is nothing he could – or would – say that would endanger college kids.
