Liberal censorship

I think this article is an interesting example of how liberals are terrified of honest debate in the market place of ideas. While liberals are the first to cry "censorship" when conservatives try to use market forces like boycotts to lessen the impact of messages mainstream America finds offensive, it is the liberals who resort to actual censorship by punishing dissenting views and removing them from the debate. This is particularly true at America's universities.

This particular story comes from Oklahoma University. It is of particular interest to the Banshee Blog because it mentions OU President David Boren (see "Mock Con: Session One in the Books" from January 30).

I found this story on Clay Whittaker's blog which, by the way, is generally worth checking out. If you go there, make sure you read his About Me section.
