Maybe the difference is that it's the government that's attempting to subvert the left-wing and its activists - while abiding, and even promoting, the right-wing - - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    And blaming the university for responding to an ultimatum made by the army is NOT a valid example to bolster your claim that freedom of speech is suppressed when it comes to views from the right. Blame the army - NOT the school...even though you also must remember that his behavior, private or otherwise, still reflects on the school - just as a soldier's reflects on the military. Also, public universities, by their very nature, tend to be reservoirs of the progressive and enlightened thought - often conflicting with the mainstream - that you refer to as "left-wing". This in itself allows for the tendency of them being less receptive to views that conflict with the prevailing thought within their midst. No different than private schools with right wing agendas, or religious schools. Bottom line, the university and its members don't have a problem with ANYONE exercising their freedom of speech - the problem lies with someone using IT as a forum for expressing views that it deems contrary or inappropriate. Meanwhile, what makes the "threat" - which you attempt to discount - very real, is that it's part of a much wider effort emanating from within the 'government' to subvert ALL forms of protest and activism that is contrary to its agenda...whether in the academic arena or not. THAT threat is real.
