Bush to the rescue on speech codes!

The Bush adminstration has warned colleges about campus speech codes, and David Limbaugh says “hurrah!”

What ever happened to the conservative ideal of self-governing institutions? The speech codes I know about are bad, but they wouldn’t be such a problem if the civil rights laws hadn’t imposed affirmative action and so forced a regime of lies on every sizable institution in the country. If local bureaucrats are oppressive, sporadic intervention by super-bureaucrats isn’t likely to be the fix, and if schools have problems it isn’t likely to fix them to tell them they can’t say officially what things are good, beautiful and true and back their view up with authority.
