  •  The precedent this could set (4.00)
    is frightening. Thank you for giving everyone a heads up.

    You point out:

    There are some good provisions in this bill, but some VERY, VERY BAD provisions that are clearly intended to make it possible for conservatives legally to harrass and discriminate against viewpoints they don't agree with in the academy.  

    We need to speak out against the bad provisions and explain politely and clearly why they are bad, so that those debating and considering this bill might understand.

    It seems to me that you have to fight the introduction of the whole bill, not just the VERY BAD provisions.

    That the author of this bill blankets the bad stuff in a bunch of innocuous good stuff is a ruse. This REALLY smells of just the beginning of the attack on public academia from our Facists Friends in power.

    •  I agree, the whole bill should be fought. (none)
      But in fairness there are at least two provisions that are written in such a way as to "protect" all sorts of speech, without any nefarious code words for liberal or progressive speech.

      However, yes, of course.  You are right-- this thing must be stopped!
