In reading George Boardman’s column, he equates “safe space” to mean “idea-free zones staffed by thought police…where the enemy is…a thought that deviates from progressive.” Wow.

The following article appeared in today’s edition of The Sacramento Bee:
Two Fresno State students are suing a professor in federal court for erasing anti-abortion messages they wrote in chalk on campus earlier this month, claiming their free speech rights were violated.
Video footage shows Greg Thacher, a professor of public health, scrubbing the chalk message with his shoe and instructing other students to do the same. Thacher claimed that the messages would only be allowed in a designated “free speech zone” on campus.
