Portland atheist student’s free speech alarm

April 25, 2018 --
This article by Portland State University Student, Andy Ngo, originally gained national attention by being featured in the Wall Street Journal, Feb 15,2018, about a campus controversy and the loss of free speech.  Mr. Ngo’s article is below:

I belong to Freethinkers of Portland State University, a skeptic student group. We’re hosting a panel this Saturday (2/17/18) on diversity featuring James Damore, the Google employee who was fired last July for writing a memo expressing heterodox views about sex disparities in the company’s workforce.

We expected controversy. But we also got danger. The left-wing newspaper Willamette Week published an article with a false and inflammatory headline: “Tech Bro Fired from Google for Saying Women Are Biologically Unfit to Be Engineers Will Speak at PSU Next Month.” The subheadline inaccurately attributed to Mr. Damore the view that “women can’t do math.”
