Free speech advocate: UT students ‘self censor’ because they are ‘terrified’

Nicole Neily, president of the free speech nonprofit Speech First, joined Fox News’ Tucker Carlson recently to discuss her organization’s latest lawsuit, a case on which Campus Reform previously reported.

The lawsuit, filed on Dec. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, alleges that the University of Texas engages in “unconstitutional” practices, which Neily outlined in a segment with Carlson.

“We allege that the University of Texas has four unconstitutional policies on the books,” Neily told Carlson. “They have a verbal harassment policy, a campus climate response team, a bias response tea, as you said, an acceptable use policy, which governs all internet and digital use on the campus, another residence hall manual, and all of those policies violate students’ First and Fourteenth Amendment rights because students are terrified to express their opinions.”
