The act of cutting off the tongue of someone who is practicing Free Speech is the worst form of hypocrisy. How can someone say that they support the U.S. Constitution and then vote in mass to defund a news journal that prints a diversity of opinion?

There is no such thing as good opinion and bad opinion. The proper way to confront an opinion that is distasteful is to express a counter-opinion. The suppression of the Press is both undemocratic and a contradiction of the concept of higher education. One might expect to see this barbarism toward contrary opinion in Caracas, Damascus or Ar Raqqah, but not in Middletown, Connecticut.
