Big League Politics reported:

Justin Fairfax is now accused of rape by a classmate during his time at Duke University, according to her lawyers. This is the second allegation of sexual assault levied against the Virginia Democrat lieutenant governor, following Dr. Vanessa Tyson’s claim that Fairfax sexually assaulted her by forcing her to perform fellatio in a hotel room at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004. Tyson has made it clear that she is willing to cooperate in an investigation of Fairfax, according to a source cited by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Evergreen Partners confirmed to Big League Politics that the firm is representing Meredith Watson.

Free Speech Organization FIRE Defends Kansas State Student Jaden McNeil From a Politically Correct Lynch Mob, KSU Will Not Expel the Student

Published

on

After Kansas State University student Jaden McNeil made a Tweet in jest about George Floyd last week, he came under fire from all angles — athletes, the student body, and university administrators.

Given the tense climate of American political discourse in 2020, there was speculation that he was about to be expelled from the university.

Nevertheless, online activism from the likes of staunch right-winger Michelle Malkin helped create sufficient pushback against the lynch mobs that were descending on McNeil.

Now, McNeil has even more backup with free speech organization The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) coming to his defense.

FIRE sent KSU a resounding warning:

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to defending liberty, freedom of speech, due process, academic freedom, legal equality, and freedom of conscience on America’s college campuses.

FIRE appreciates that Kansas State University is one of the few institutions in the country whose policies earn a ‘green light’ rating from FIRE. We write today in response to the University’s statement that it is reviewing its “options” concerning KSU undergraduate Jaden McNeil’s statement on social media.

KSU made a suggestive tweet in response to McNeil’s original tweet about Floyd:

 

A message from President Richard Myers: The insensitive comments posted by one K-State student hurts our entire community. These divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university. We condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms.

We are launching an immediate review of the university’s options. Black Lives Matter at Kansas State University and we will continue to fight for social justice.

Although McNeil was forced to delete his Tweet about George Floyd last week, sites like Revolver still maintained a record of it.

McNeil tweeted jokingly, “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”

FIRE’s letter served as a reminder to KSU that as a public university it is bound by the United States Constitution and is compelled to protect free speech per the First Amendment. Yes, even when it comes to offensive speech.

The letter added:

While McNeil’s tweets may be deeply offensive to many, they do not fall into a category of speech unprotected by the First Amendment, which strictly limits public universities like KSU from punishing protected expression.

The entire statement can be read on Michelle Malkin’s twitter feed:

 

The stakes are high in 2020, as free speech hangs in the balance thanks to relentless pressure from the PC Left and Big Tech.

If the Right loses this battle, all other rights —right to bear arms all the way to the freedom of association — will be ripped to shreds.

The good news is that KSU announced that it will not expel McNeil over his Tweet. But the fight is far from over.

Anyone who values American freedoms should stand in solidarity with McNeil.
