October 4, 2019 – The fight for Free Speech and against #cyberbullying comes to Binghamton University. The video is a live interview, discussing Lacey Kestecher’s attempt to bring open discussion to fellow students (via a Turning Point USA chapter). It also addresses the result of some students attempting to silence her, via social media, just for saying hello. Literally.
We get her first-hand impressions of this attack on the First Amendment, and how she is moving forward. Also in this live interview is John Restuccia, president of the Binghamton University College Republicans (and formerly an intern for this company) with his view of the issue. Will Binghamton University respond? Will major media pick up the story? If not, why?
Good questions without answers at the moment, but see for yourself and decide because so far they are silent. Though similar situations have certainly reached national levels of interest and coverage. Should anyone, especially on a college campus, be silenced even before they can share their views? If colleges aren’t bastions of free speech, given time how can our country be free?
