Betsy DeVos appoints campus free speech advocate. Liberals are flipping out
By Ryan Girdusky | June 6, 2017
… Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has appointed free speech advocate Adam Kissel to deputy assistant secretary for higher education programs effective June 19.
Kissel’s career highlights include working at institutions dedicated to protecting free speech at universities like the director of the Individual Rights Defense Program and vice president of programs at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. A key issue for Kissel is the low standard of evidence needed to convict a college student of sexual assault and harassment, reported Inside Higher Ed.
Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), well-known for her defense of Osama bin Laden as a man who built roads, schools, and daycare centers back in 2002, blasted Kissel’s appointment in a statement.
“I am deeply troubled this hire is another concerning sign that President Trump plans to make it more difficult for survivors of campus sexual violence to get justice,” Murray said in the statement. …
Well, this flip-out reaction was predictable. I wonder if Libs & Progs realize that when they predictably go Full-Godwin regardless of what Trump or his Administration do, they give Trump & Co. freedom.
