The OAH and Speech Codes: An Opportunity
As someone who has not hesitated to use his academic freedom to criticize the war (normally considered a"leftist" cause), I would urge Montgomery to take this request seriously. This could be an excellent way to build bridges between conservatives, libertarians, liberals, and socialists and thus be better able to defend academic freedom for everyone. It would also be a wonderful advertisement for Joe and Jill Six Pack about the across-the-board consistency of the OAH.
