Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression (TJC) hands out yearly “awards” to government agencies that show themselves hostile to free speech. This year, however, the Jefferson Muzzle Awards were reserved for various colleges, as the increasingly radical left institutions of higher learning, spurred by such groups as Black Lives Matters and the craven administrators who quiver in fear of them, have scarred freedom of expression over the past year in a multitude of ways.
Fifty schools got their ceremonial muzzles—the Muzzies?—in five categories:
1. Censorship of Students
2. Censorship by Students
3. Efforts to Limit Press Access
4. Threats to Academic Freedom, and
5. Censorship of Outside Speakers
And it’s not funny.
