American academia in a nutshell. One school invites a murderer who killed a Philadelphia police officer to address a commencement ceremony and to the left it’s a great victory for freedom of speech. Another invites a well respected conservative columnist but he’s disinvited because of something he wrote in one of his columns.

What’s wrong with this picture? Murder is cool but a challenging idea is unacceptable?

That would probably get him more invitations.

Indeed.

A prominent conservative political pundit was uninvited from speaking at Scripps College, in a program designed to promote conservative views on campus, because of his conservative views.

Crazy.
