UMass-Amherst abandons free-speech rights

Pete Chagnon - OneNewsNow

An organization that defends individual liberty in education is taking issue with the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.

Last month UMass-Amherst came under fire for its treatment of conservative columnist Don Feder. Feder was invited by a conservative school club to give a presentation, but was unable to do so after student protestors heckled him off stage while university officials stood by. Now another censorship issue is brewing on the campus after student protestors stole copies of a conservative newspaper and blocked its distribution on campus.
