Free Speech Advocates Confronted by Race Activists at Harvard

Universities are now a battleground over free speech:

Tensions are rising at Harvard Law School (HLS) after a confrontation between student activist group Reclaim Harvard Law (RHL) and students who are concerned about freedom of speech.

Last week, HLS student Bill Barlow put up posters—which read “Reclaim Harvard Law = Trump”—challenging RHL’s occupation of Caspersen Student Center lounge—which RHL is referring to as “Belinda Hall”—because, as Barlow explained to The Harvard Crimson, both Trump and RHL “support the suppression of dissent, and, to a certain extent, both of them support or endorse racist ideologies.”
