Iowa State Student Leaders Backtrack on Free Speech Zones, Claim They’re Advocates of Free Speech

Free speech zones are not an actual expression of free speech, but a restriction of free speech:

Iowa State University’s student government considered a bill that would create a new free-speech zone on campus. They ended up gutting it unanimously, and then claimed they were “advocating” free speech.

Iowa State Daily reports on the curious debate and vote on the bill, which would have created “another zone” for ISU members to express themselves without restrictions, provided it wasn’t “within 100 feet of a campus building” or impeded “foot traffic.”
