UNC Board of Governors: Some speech is ‘more free’ than others

“All speech is free, but some speech is more free than others.” This seems to be the motto of the current members of the University of North Carolina’s Board of Governors and their General Assembly backers. Like the dictatorial pigs in Orwell’s “Animal Farm” — who declared “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” — the board is putting a noble veneer on self-serving and disingenuous arguments.
