Lincoln University knows JUST how to respond to accusations they don’t respect free speech, they shut it off. That’s right, that’s the route a Student Union chose to take after a conservative group posted an article that showed the university ranked “very intolerant” in a survey about the University’s stance on Free Speech. We think the evidence speaks for itself. Here’s a link to their social media page:
A student union has banned a university Conservative society from using its social media accounts – because they challenged its position on free speech.
Lincoln University’s Conservative Society has been censored by its student union after it posted an image online showing that the university had been ranked “very intolerant” on free speech in a recent survey.
In response, the Students’ Union swiftly suspended the society’s social media accounts, on the grounds that highlighting the university’s ranking had brought it into disrepute.
Lincoln MP Karl McCartney….said that union officials should be “ashamed”.
“This intolerant, illiberal and totalitarian response is akin to something out of the Soviet Union or North Korea rather than a place for learning and debate,” he said.
