There should be absolutely no federal funding, taxes, or regulation whatsoever for education at any level — and about 80% of everything else the central government does.

If we have a Constitution, we do, then the Law of the land is free speech. Deny free speech, then deny US Taxpayer funding.

No college that receives taxpayer money should continue to get paid tax money if it doesn’t allow conservative input.

With Federal Funding comes repression of free speech and the expectation of CRT and who knows what next! Schools that teach Truth should have NOTHING to do with Government money!

Their funding should come from those that support their agenda. Many US taxpayers don’t support that agenda.

Recognizing that universities are bastions of liberalism is no excuse for allowing them to obtain endless taxpayer dollars while they practice flagrant, unapologetic viewpoint discrimination.

No college should be forced to let people speak with profanity laced content & no college should be forced to let any “Hate Speech” be delivered on campus. College should be allowed to choose speakers of their choice & morality. Read the goals of communism written in 1950s & then compare to what is happening to USA & then vote in poll again.

We should not be locked out of the conversation. People need to be able to express their views both sides even if we agree to disagree!

Universities need to be weaned off the govt teat. Additionally, university admissions policies need to be more transparent. Most public university admissions policies wouldn’t survive in the light of day.

Schools are not teaching kids to do critical thinking for themselves. The liberals don’t believe we can/should think for ourselves…that was mentioned by Obama in a speech he made. College Students should hear all sides to an argument and then make up their minds…the libs just want to spoon feed their own indoctrination to students…brainwashing is high on their list. If America doesn’t wake up and do something to prevent socialism, America will implode.

HE Should have included (.50 Cal. Machine Guns with Overlapping Fields of Fire, every 300 yards, on top of the WALL. And “MOW DOWN” (Every Illegal) attempting to cross into USA illegally !!!! ????☹️????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Who is going to decide what schools get funding & who will not? This will end up being a Partisan issue and result in favortism to colleges. Each college should have to right to decide what speakers they want to perform at their school. The poll questions should only be yes or no in this case.

Far left liberalism has unfortunately been in our universities since the 1960’s & we did nothing about it, & now it seems they have their way in most of our universities, & we (conservatives) have to take a back seat there. It’s not right, & it’s not Democratic – We need to make changes as to what ideologies our prospective university professors espouse (and the administrators of OUR universities should make Sure these professors are Not teaching Our children that socialism/communism is a good way to live!!!

Freedom of speech guaranteed in the constitution that all the people need to know if they want to make up their own constitution then go to another country

Shouldn’t colleges and universities follow federal laws in order to receive federal funding? Likewise shouldn’t they follow state laws in order to receive state funding? Aren’t professors allowed to go to their classes and teach them as long as what they are teaching is within the law?

…and students who aggressively (i.e., violently) attempt to block conservative presentations/speakers should have their federally guaranteed scholarships stripped.

Any and all entities that accept Federal Funding MUST adhere to the 1st Amendment regardless of beliefs and ideology. If you denounce, ban, deny everyone’s freedom of speech, or allow the shut down, refusal to allow speakers or violent protests by students/staff , then you should have your funding revoked for 5 years after the first offense and then a lifetime after the second offense.

What happened to Freedom of Speech? All of a sudden it’s one sided? You can’t say certain things on Social Media because you will be banned for a period of time and the majority of television is the same. I’m so glad AMAC and a few other great places are keeping it “real.”

Any facility that denies equal access must not be eligible to receive any local, state, or federal government funding.

Yes, where Freedom of Speach is denied on College campuses , the Fedgov should withhold any/all funds it has lined up for that college. ALSO , the fedgov should not pay off the student loans of students at such colleges . The fedgov cannot forgive student loans because the fedgov is not the lender of those loans to those students . But the fedgov wants to pay off those student loans only because theyre little Democrats . The fedgov will tax working people to pay for those student loans . Why is the fedgov giving money away to students who come from upper middle class families and who will most likely become upper middle class persons themselves? Why does the DEMOCRAT fedgov want to GIVE money to the rich DEMOCRATs ? Could it be that these students are the same students who deny freedom of speech on their campuses ? Is this why the DEMOCRATs want to pay / GIVE , them money or ‘ forgive ‘ their loans ?

Of course, federal funding Should be Withheld from colleges that oppose conservative free speech. Free speech should be honored and all “Reputable” colleges should see to it without debate. Why would anyone want to fund education to our young people that would cause them to hate someone else’s opinion? Would it be acceptable to ban someone from a good education because of their race or gender? No, not in today’s America. The same applies to political thought. College professors should follow ethical rules.

If this is the way to teach our next generation workforce, politicians and parents by sending them too publicly funded schools, then remove federal funds and especially tax-exempt status. Harvard University alone has an endowment of over $40,000,000,000. Now tell me the rational thinking of them taking federal funds? Schools are not required to follow the Bill of Rights!! They deny free speech under the law yet receive taxpayer funds. Parents are trained to believe that only through colleges can their child find a job or career that will support them through life. Most private businesses do not have owners with college degrees. Electricians. Plumbers, Welders, Facility Directors, Heavy Equipment operators, Cosmetologists, Graphic Designers, Landscapers, Truckdrivers and many other jobs we rely on every day to run this country do not require college. Technical High schools and on the job training after graduating from public schools are the best way to fill the gap in the workforce. These trades make $60-200K per year depending on if you are the owner or employee. College isn’t the answer for everything. Working in a trade also removes the $100K-400K student debt from your life.

Of course, but we may have wait for a Republican administration, or if sooner, have a veto proof majority in congress to even start the process, let alone put real pressure on the Judiciaciery to enforce it.

No one should be prevented, silenced, threatened or “cancelled “ for wanting to speak. It is their right as an American!

At some point, the dignified and respectful art of intellectual debate is no longer valued or acceptable in higher institutions of learning. No longer do educators encourage healthy debate and, thus, fail as educators. They refuse to admit that differing viewpoints challenge and hone a student’s critical thinking skills—skills that are a sign and a result of a superior education.

Currently students are continually volunteering to go deeply into debt SIMPLY TO BE INDOCTRINATED. And, likewise, parents are bankrolling this disaster. What a shameful waste of money.

Better yet, college Diversity Offices should be required to enforce diversity of thought. They should not be allowed to hire or promote Liberal professors or administrators until at least 50% of them are either conservative or Libertarian.

Freedom of speech applies to everyone. If only one side is acceptable, then it is no longer education, but indoctrination. No freedom, no Federal funding.

No Socialist/Communist liberals should be allowed to speak at all. Colleges should NOT receive any Federal funding or OUTSIDE funding that VIOLATES the U.S. CONSTITUTION.
