#TXLEGE: Higher Ed. establishment proves Abbott A LIAR (once again)

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
Joshua 24:15

Via. Texas Scorecard:
Starting a college organization is never easy, but starting a conservative organization—Young Conservatives of Texas, to be precise—has proven to be particularly hard at the University of North Texas.

There are many staff, students, and perhaps even those in administration who seem to be against our message. Our freedom of speech is under fire, with rumors that the Student Government Association is looking to put policies in place that would essentially revoke the free-speech rights that were reaffirmed to public universities through the passage of Senate Bill 18—which YCT representatives gave supportive testimony for at the Senate hearing—and Trump’s executive order.
The piece then details the UNT administration's specific abuses.  Typical higher ed. stuff.  To be honest, the details don't matter.

With all due respect: DUH!!!

Of course the higher ed. establishment is ignoring the legislature.  It's what they do.  The only thing that's surprising is that people believed Greg Abbott in June:

The higher ed. establishment will continue to ignore the legislature as long as the Boards' of Regents allow them to do so.  Meanwhile, allowing the higher ed. establishment to do whatever it wants is the one common trait we've seen from Greg Abbott's regent appointees.  And the Texas Senate keeps confirming them.

So why is anyone surprised?!?

We've been making this point for years: See 2017, and 2018, and 2019.

Witness list from this past session's UNT Board confirmation hearing:

All is well with this author's soul.

Bottom Line: The only surprising thing is that anyone is still surprised.
