13. All you have to do is google. There are limits on free speech

Rights, particularly where it is disruptive in educational settings. Here, the speaker advocates violence against women. Take a look at just one example of a university’s policy and you’ll see a clear violation.

“Illegal speech activity, not protected by the U.S. or California Constitutions or by this policy, includes speech that promotes actual violence or harm, constitutes criminal harassment, or words which by their very utterance would incite an immediate breach of the peace (“fighting words”).“ (Humboldt U policy).

Edited to add: I advocated prospective students’ voting with their feet. This is a perfectly reasonable expression of their free speech rights, to say nothing of their rights to choose any university at which to study. They have no obligation to enroll at a university where comments creating a hostile environment toward women or other groups are allowed with impunity. And donors have no obligation either. I think the provost will reconsider her position in the coming days.
