Florida’s governor has signed legislation that will require public colleges and universities to annually survey their students and staff about their beliefs and viewpoints in order to support “intellectual diversity,” while hinting that the schools could face financial penalties depending on the survey results.
The goal of House Bill 233, which was signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Tuesday, is “to ensure” that students are presented “diverse idea and opinion, including those that they may disagree with or find uncomfortable,” according to its language.
DeSantis said the state’s institutes of higher learning have largely become “intellectually repressive environments” and that these surveys will help to change that.
Governor DeSantis is absolutely correct. Colleges have become leftist agenda driven originations that profess a hatred against capitalism but make millions off their students while they drown them in debt.
College is a place of an exchange of ideas; however, it now is only leftist ideas where speakers such as Milos Yiannopoulos are banned from speaking as they disagree with their politically correct narrative or anything contrary to leftist agenda.
Another area of concern is critical race theory which contends that racism has always been part of every facet of American history and still is today. Has there been racism in this country? Yes, is there still? Yes, but to the extent that critical race theory portrays it is divisive and will do nothing but separate us even more.
Another example of colleges and war on free speech is Brandeis University student recommendations for more neutral words for oppressive language which is nothing more than censorship.
