Government employees vow to punish speech that conflicts with their political viewsbigstock-Prisoner-Of-Silence-50930396

New Jersey’s largest government institution has declared the First Amendment null and void.

“There is no such thing as ‘free’ speech. All speech has a cost and consequences,” says Rutgers University’s “Bias Prevention & Education Committee.”

The university warns it will aggressively punish what it calls “bias incidents.”

According to Rutgers:

“Bias Acts Are: Verbal, written, physical, psychological acts that threaten or harm a person or group on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, atypical heredity or cellular blood trait, military service or veteran status.”

Rutgers is a public school, receiving over $400 million in state budget funds each year as a government program.

Under the First Amendment is not allowed to restrict or punish speech, expression or assembly.

But liberalism is the belief America is a mistake that must be corrected, so they have declared themselves exempt from the Constitution’s limitations on government power.

The school allows students to anonymously report others for thought crimes.

Rutgers has an online “Bias Incident Report Form.”  People filling out the form do not even need to be a victim.  The school encourages people to contact authorities if they witness speech directed at others that makes them uncomfortable, so it may be stamped out.

“The Bias Prevention and Education Committee, according to the university, is a ‘two-tiered body comprised of the Deans of Students Bias Response Team and the Bias Prevention Education Advisory Panel working in concert to MONITOR, PREVENT, REPORT, RESPOND, and RESTORE environments in the aftermath of BIAS INCIDENTS,’ Campus Reform reports.

Yes, there is a “Deans of Students Bias Response Team” and a “Bias Prevention Education Advisory Panel.”

Rutgers also warns professors to not teach facts that make students uncomfortable.

“Rutgers professors are encouraged to prevent bias inside the classroom by using ‘the syllabus to create ground rules with regard to difference and disagreement.’ Professors are also encouraged to ask their students ‘how they feel about provocative material, especially that which references issues of race, sexuality, gender, class, religion or any of the other “protected classes,”’’ Campus Reform reports.

In other words, don’t hire someone with the word “Rutgers” on their resume.
