A Sanford law student posted the satirical poster pictured below and now Stanford has put his law degree on hold. As a card-carrying member of The Federalist Society myself, I object to Stanford’s anti-free speech administrators and call on Stanford’s president to suspend or fire them immediately. More details here and here.
Update (June 7): Because of negative publicity generated by this sorry state of affairs, Stanford has backed down, but no administrator has suffered any adverse consequences for unlawfully putting the student’s degree on hold in the first place.
1.) Give the kid his goddamn diploma! He earned it & the university already has his money. It may be a private institution, however, he did pay for a service. Barring any outstanding academic shortcomings, the degree is his!
2.) I am pretty sure most Fed Soc members are free speech advocates. I highly doubt most members would take offense.
3.) Crickets from the Hoover Institute?! Really?! Glad to know they are resolute in their commitment to free speech.
