Let me get this straight… Liberal college campuses refuse to let people like Ben Shapiro speak. But they still have, and actually REFUSE to remove, classes celebrating the talent of someone like Woody Allen. Even in this hyper-charged, Weinsteining-Era exposing Hollywood’s sexual assault coverups.

Campus Reform reports:

The University of California, San Diego is refusing to cancel a course on “The Films of Woody Allen” despite a petition that has received tens of thousands of signatures.

In a statement last week, the Academic Senate pushed back against demands that the class be cancelled based on unproven sexual abuse allegations against the filmmaker, stressing the importance of academic freedom on campus.

“This, of course, raises serious issues concerning academic freedom, utterly independent of any specifics pertaining to allegations about Woody Allen.”   

“As many of you know, a public petition was initiated several weeks ago with the purpose of cancelling a current course on the films of Woody Allen, a staple elective in the Theatre and Dance Department,” the Academic Senate wrote. “This, of course, raises serious issues concerning academic freedom, utterly independent of any specifics pertaining to allegations about Woody Allen.”
