Someone gets it right 

At the University of Alabama, the proposed speech code mentioned here earlier has now been shelved, says Liberty & Power.
Defenders of free speech showed up to fill the meeting room. They included students from the residence halls, members of the Alabama Scholars Association, and others who brought a variety of flags, including the U.S., Israeli, Italian, and Christian. The demonstration effectively showed the absurdity of the ban and illustrated the general threat that it posed to free speech.
