A Free Speech Victory in California (This is a good one)

Fighting back and not wimping out works!

Via Instapundit. 

"Conservative students at Stanford University won’t have to pay thousands of dollars in “security costs” to host an event on traditional marriage views, as the administration reversed course after the student group accused them of trying to tax free speech."

Actually, "security" is the new "shut up". 

This has happened a lot in Canada-remember when Ann Coulter tried to speak here?

Just as a reminder, from the Globe & Mail: 

"Right-wing antagonist Ann Coulter cancelled a University of Ottawa address last night after organizers decided it wasn't safe to speak.

"The move followed boisterous demonstrations outside that sponsors of the appearance feared could turn violent."

"There was a risk there could be physical violence," said Canadian conservative activist Ezra Levant, who was scheduled to introduce Ms. Coulter.

Actually, it was the "safe space" p*ssies who were the most beligerent. If you recall:

"I was just worried that things were going to be said about certain groups of people that were going to make them feel very unsafe and very uncomfortable and we promise our students here at the University of Ottawa a safe, positive space," said Rita Valeriano, a second-year sociology and women's studies student.

I wonder if she's in 7th year now.
