Well said - finally a little light shed upon the very real limitations of the right of free speech without ramifications at private organizations, as well as a thoughtful call to allow the process to run its course before making uninformed judgments - one way or the other.

The right to impose codes of conduct that promote harmony and diversity among our student populations is way beyond the point of debate, as is the right to penalize those found to have violated such a code of conduct. This has nothing to do with political correctness. Importantly - we don't have any real facts to formulate independent judgement as to this specific conduct. Let's let Princeton do its thing.

Well, say adios to the Democratic and Republican parties, not to mention Jill Stein, Paul Krugman, the New York Times, Fox News, MSNBC, those who believe in, and deny, global warming and, finally, 90% of the faculty and administrators employed at Ivy schools.

Persecution of non-criminal private thoughts and speech, even if offensive to some or many, is wrong and unconstitutional. Offensive speech is exactly what is protected and cannot be abridged or punished.

If burning the American Flag is protected speech, surely private snarky comments about the women's swim team are entitled to the same protection.
