Powerline: DePaul Invites Churchill, Suppresses Republicans

via Powerline:
DePaul University in Chicago has invited Ward Churchill to its campus to speak on--of all things--human rights. The college's Republicans have tried to mobilize opposition to Churchill's visit, but have been blocked by the college's administration. Amazingly, the Republicans were denied the right to post flyers criticizing Churchill's visit on the ground that the flyers were "propaganda"!
I found this via a link at Elephants in Academics and they link a site created by DePaul students to follow the visit. You'll see a post there with a letter from the Gov of Colorado asking this,
All decent people, whether Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, should denounce the views of Ward Churchill. Not only are his writings outrageous and insupportable, they are at odds with the facts of history. Ward Churchill has besmirched the University of Colorado and the excellent teaching, writing and research of its faculty.

Why let him besmirch DePaul as well?
