‘Hot Air’ and ‘Firefly’ Actors Praise FIRE

By October 5, 2011

Since FIRE’s recent victory at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, the Internet has been abuzz with news of our success. Some of the praise comes from Firefly actors Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin, who were instrumental in getting the word out about the censorship of Professor James Miller’s posters and pointing out the blatant hypocrisy of UW-Stout’s administration.

Fillion and Baldwin are both featured today in a post about the case by Ed Morrissey on Hot Air. Baldwin’s reaction to the case:

I am heartened and encouraged by the outpouring of support from the "Firefly/Serenity" community. It remains a tragic multi-generational crime that Leftism’s educational malpractices have so perverted our nation’s educational system that it becomes necessary for an American university to convene training seminars on the First Amendment. God bless FIRE and free thinkers everywhere for shining their lights.

And Fillion’s reaction:

There are times we must try hard to find meaning. I understand that. I don’t understand when we try hard to find malice.

Head to Hot Air for the whole post about FIRE’s victory at UW-Stout.
