Damn straight …

… Dear University of Tennessee, Hands Off Instapundit Glenn Reynolds. | National Review.

Reynolds was speaking as a private citizen on a matter of public concern. His speech constituted neither a true threat nor incitement to violence. State officials are free to condemn his speech, they are not free to punish that speech.
Moreover, let’s not forget the context. Motorists do not have to yield to a violent mob simply because that violent mob seeks “social justice.” Instead, if a motorist reasonably believes his or her life – or the lives of their passengers – are in danger, they can take steps to defend themselves, including by pressing the gas to leave the scene. 
Too many university administrators are looking more and more like sworn enemies of freedom.
