Hey, remember Joshua Nash?
He’s the Purdue University Northwest student who was maybe, possibly, kinda threatened with expulsion because he wrote that Black Lives Matter is “trash” online.
Well here’s some good news: the crackpots at Purdue aren’t going to expel him after all.
After feeling the heat of much righteous indignation over the matter, the school issued a statement saying that the administrative wacko-birds never really wanted to expel Nash.
They just wanted to have a dialog with him.
Here’s the statement:
Purdue Northwest has never suggested, let alone threatened, the idea of disciplining the student in question for exercising his right to freedom of expression. When, as here, an administrative meeting is called with a student on our Calumet campus, the purpose is to explore possible ways to support or establish a dialogue with that student, not to discipline him or her. The idea is to see if there might be a teachable moment opportunity for the student, not to treat it as a conduct matter. Protecting free speech is of central importance to our university, a commitment recognized by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education when it conferred on Purdue Northwest its highest “green light” rating for its speech policies. Nothing involved in our administrative meeting process represents an abridgement of that stance.
