Yale University: Blame-the-Speaker Approach | The Volokh Conspiracy

The Volokh Conspiracy – Yale University Press Buys Into the Blame-the-Speaker Approach

Yale Univesity self-censored itself by not showing the illustrations in a book about the cartoons of Mohamed that incited violence a few years ago. Their reason boils down to the same sad “didn’t want to offend anyone” logic.

This from the comments:

Just another case of liberal academia showing it’s true ‘backbone’… They’re real good at yelling and screaming against the USA, when they know the police will be there to PROTECT them, not SILENCE them, but let there be the slightest actual danger or even hint of such, and they run like the scared rabbits they are.

Well said.
