Last year, the duo orchestrated a lecture by communist and domestic terrorist Angela Davis.
Provost Meyers attacked Ben Shapiro—who’d been invited to speak by conservative students—in an op-ed published in the campus newspaper.
And this week, McAdams’ shared on his blog the story of a latino student who’d been expelled by President Lovell, another apparent example of Lovell’s attacks on free expression.In the weeks leading up to oral arguments in McAdams’ case, it became clear Marquette felt they would lose this case. Marquette bought Google Ads and full page newspaper ads to bolster their position, and even used their influence with the Milwaukee Chamber of Commerce in their attempts to squash McAdams. Marquette’s President has spent his tenure fighting conservatives and treating them as second-class members of the community. And even while attacking McAdams and taking every effort to rid his school of the conservative professor, President Lovell requested a written apology from McAdams. Throughout the case it’s been clear that Lovell ought to be the one apologizing. He has created an campus environment where conservatives are not welcome.
