The Student Senate at UW-Eau Claire recently decided to bar the use of student fees to fund any student-organized activity that promotes a "particular ideological, religious, or partisan viewpoint." In that March 2005 action, the student government amended the school's "Organized Activity Funding Policy," and placed that policy directly at odds with federal law and rulings in Supreme Court cases such as Rosenberger v. University of Virginia (1995) and Board of Regents v. Southworth (2000).
David French, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), says UWEC is engaging in viewpoint discrimination against groups like Campus Crusade for Christ and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.
See the hypocrisy? Five years ago the radical right was arguing that it shouldn't have to pay the fees to support certain speech. Now the radical right objects to a University's decision to end the fees that they didn't want to pay in the first place.
It's good to always be the victim.
