Out in Jefferson City, MO, Lincoln University’s completely open to all ideologies and speaking out—unless your views don’t line up with theirs. Some conservative students realized this upon the kids finding the university to be ranked as “very intolerant” of free speech. But LU was determined to not let that ranking rest. Right upon all this, the school retaliated by (wait for it) shutting down the students’ message—do they know the definition of censorship?
Check out this report: “Lincoln University’s Conservative Society has been censored by its student union after it posted an image online showing that the university had been ranked ‘very intolerant’ on free speech in a recent survey. In response, the Students’ Union swiftly suspended the society’s social media accounts, on the grounds that highlighting the university’s ranking had brought it into disrepute.”
But wait, there’s more:

Case in point. Lincoln University’s actions suggest their departments are proponents of anything but the entirety of the First Amendment. Additionally, this begs the question, “What is the school imparting onto their students?”
