The newest recipients of the Free Speech Butt award are the fine folks at New York University and the Langone Medical Center.
As reported in the Daily Caller, “New York University has rescinded a lecture invitation to James Watson, the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, because of his apparently offensive views.”
Big surprise, eh?
The DC reported that a letter from the NYU lecture committee stated that NYU “has a commitment to both the quality, as well as freedom of speech. But that balance did not entail tolerating Watson speech as part of the lecture series.”
Well then, here you go, NYU. Pantywastes!
