In a hearing on free speech on college campuses, Democrats dismissed the idea that free speech is under fire at liberal academic institutions like colleges and universities:

The subcommittee’s Democratic members, however, refused even to entertain the idea of weighing in on the free speech debate, complaining that the subject does not fall under the subcommittee’s jurisdiction.

“Let me be clear. We have plenty of work do, and this is not it,” said ranking member Rep. John Lewis, adding, “I do not understand why we are here.”

Rep. Joseph Crowley even went so far as to dismiss the concerns voiced during the hearing, accusing the Republican members of “searching for a problem where no problem exists.”
