Suppressing free speech is becoming a common theme at liberal run universities and Marquette University is at the head of the pack — but conservative students with the group Turning Point USA are fighting back.
As reported earlier a professor at the school, Cheryl Abbate, told a student that anti gay marriage speech would not be tolerated in her class.
Now John McAdams, a professor who spoke out against Abbate on the Marquette Warrior website, has been relieved of his duties and even banned from setting foot on the campus without getting permission first.
In a letter to McAdams, Richard Holz, dean of Marquette’s Klingler College of Arts and Science, ordered him to stay off school grounds.
“You are to remain off campus during this time, and should you need to come to campus, you are to contact me in writing beforehand to explain the purpose of your visit, to obtain my consent and to make appropriate arrangements for that visit,” Holz wrote. (Remember, Marquette is supposed to be a Catholic university.)
Conservative students are infuriated.
“If we’re such a welcome, open university, why aren’t we welcoming different viewpoints?” said J.R. O’Rourke, sophomore at Marquette and president of the school’s Turning Point USA chapter told the Milwaukee-Sentinel.
Turning Point USA is a national group that aims to flip the traditionally Democrat college-age vote into the Republican column.
The protest is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday and O’Rourke hopes the message of real tolerance gets through
“We’re hoping the university rethinks its stance, invites him back and doesn’t punish him for having a viewpoint that doesn’t align with the university,” O’Rourke said.
