(RTP 63) The Battle for Free Speech: What’s Happening in Our Colleges?


Free speech is one of the cornerstones of American democracy. It’s a right that many have fought for and continue to defend. However, recent trends in educational institutions suggest that this fundamental right is under threat. A recent survey involving 55,000 students from over 250 colleges has shed light on the alarming suppression of free speech on campuses. So, what’s really happening in our colleges, and why should we be concerned?

The Survey Says…

The survey, conducted by College Pulse and the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE), aimed to gauge the state of free speech in American colleges. Michigan Technological University ranked first as the best for free speech, but the overall findings were disturbing. Many students believe that they have the right to suppress speech if it doesn’t align with their views, labeling it as hate speech, misogyny, or some form of phobia.

The Role of Professors and Administrators

It’s not just the students who are to blame for this suppression of free speech. Professors and administrators are often the ones teaching these skewed perspectives. They create an environment where only one side of the story is told, and dissenting opinions are not just discouraged but actively suppressed.

The Real-World Implications

The suppression of free speech in colleges has far-reaching implications. Today’s college students are tomorrow’s leaders, policymakers, and influencers. If they are taught that suppressing free speech is acceptable, what does that mean for the future of our country? It’s a slippery slope that could lead to a society where free speech is a thing of the past.

The Conservative Perspective

From a conservative standpoint, this trend is deeply troubling. Free speech is not just a constitutional right; it’s a value that should be upheld and protected. Suppressing free speech is not just an attack on a fundamental right but an attack on the very principles that this country was founded on.


The battle for free speech is a battle for the soul of our nation. It’s time to take a stand and protect this fundamental right before it’s too late. Educational institutions should be places where all voices are heard, not echo chambers that amplify only one perspective. Let’s fight to keep free speech alive in our colleges and, by extension, our nation.
