University of Illinois sued over ‘bias response’ team, citing First Amendment issues


There was once a time, not long ago, in which we looked to the higher education as a way to expand the minds of America’s youth.

The idea is a simple one:  By investing in the education of the youth, we would be investing in solutions to future problems.  After all, smart, hard-working Americans are nigh unstoppable…just look at our history.  From Manifest Destiny to landing on the moon, our ingenuity has been a beacon of progress for the world at large and humanity as a whole.

But these days, something feels off.  Universities are no longer ascribing to the tenets of exploration.  Instead, they seem focused on remaining inculpable for the emotional turmoil that young people are unable to escape.  We must remember that these are young people, who are emotional for no reason at all, and at no fault of their own.  That’s just biology – endocrinology, if you wanted to be specific.

Now, as free speech itself is under attack on campuses across the nation, a lawsuit is targeting the University of Illinois over their newly-minted “bias response” initiatives – a program that the lawsuit alleges is an infringement on the First Amendment.

A new lawsuit filed against the University of Illinois alleges that administrators have installed a campus “Speech Police” system.

According to a reportby The College Fix, a new lawsuit against the University of Illinois’ alleges that the institution’s “bias incident” report system allows administrators to unlawfully police speech on campus.

“Bias incident” report systems have been instituted on many college campus around the country. They are structured in such a manner that allows students to report incidents quietly and confidentially. However, these systems have been abused by students since their implementation as a means to report their peers for mundane speech.

As a nation of people yearning to endeavor outward and upward in this crazy world, it is imperative that those in our education system be shown reality– not whatever version of society that we think will keep their feelings from getting hurt.
