Gonzaga University: Censorship of ‘Hate Speech’

Category: Free Speech
Schools: Gonzaga University

Gonzaga University has reaffirmed the value of freedom of speech after unfairly disciplining a student group for posting fliers with allegedly “discriminatory” language. In response to a letter from FIRE, President Robert J. Spitzer agreed to rescind punishment of the Gonzaga College Republicans. The group had been disciplined after it posted fliers containing the word “hates” as part of the title of an upcoming speaker’s book: Why the Left Hates America.
