One Response to UO Senate to meet on articulation, expedition, denunciation

  1. honest Uncle Bernie says:

    It will be interesting to see how many people vote against denouncing White Supremacy and Hate Speech on the UO campus. WS and HS are both very popular causes at UO.

    Will be interesting to see what the UO senate actually proposes to do about these. Ban neo-Nazis from speaking on campus? Ban “hate speech”? I see a real chance for a First Amendment case that UO will lose. The late Dave Frohnmayer taught me something about this.

    But wait, the senate resolution says that UO will “unite in solidarity.” To me, this sounds vague to the point of being completely ineffectual. Pointless virtue signalling.

    Might it not be better, instead of giving publicity to these creeps, which is what they want, to ignore them and thereby shun them? That is what I did when I found a swastika on campus in the last year or so. I suppose I could have made a big deal of it in the Register-Guard or Eugene Weekly or Oregonian. Again, I think that is what these losers would have wanted, they would have been thrilled. But I dealt with it very quietly. I still think I did the right thing.
