File Under: "Believe It When I See It"...

Fresh off the BLNN is this interesting tidbit...

Protection, at last? University with liberal bent bans political discrimination
The University of Colorado, which has a reputation for liberal politics, has banned discrimination based on political affiliation -- giving greater protection to students and faculty who speak their minds while on campus.

The policy is believed to be a first for any public college or university, and could help protect campus conservatives who might fear retribution for expressing their views in the classroom, or in written assignments.
Or it could be used to punish any teacher or organization that holds anything other than a far-left moonbat view. You got a C in your Organic Chemistry class? It's the fault of that right-wing professor who insisted that you turn in your lab reports on time! Couldn't go to a killer party because you have a physics test the next day? That teacher has a Gadsden flag on her car, doesn't she? I'd be really curious to see how the breakdown of "protection" worked, especially at the University of Colorado.

You know, where they laughably accuse House Republicans of being "too extreme"...

Forgive me for being cynical here. It's just that the past, oh, 25 years or so of my life and my life experience point to this policy only being used one way, and it's not to protect the conservative point of view. After attending not one but two state-run schools (in two different states), I can attest to the political bent of the vast majority of the power players in each. I've been graded unfairly because writing assignments strayed from the left-wing view. I don't see a "ban" on "political discrimination" being applied in a consistent or fair manner.

When they start having Sarah Palin speak on campus without protests and such, I'll start believing it...

That is all.
