Dennis Prager

Dennis Prager speaks to students and members of the community Nov. 9 in the Education Auditorium.

When conservative commentator Dennis Prager visited the University of Wyoming in November, his planned speech — and even just his presence — set off a flurry of debate across campus.

Protesters argued Prager should be disinvited, citing his controversial opinions on everything from homosexuality to climate change. Prager’s supporters argued he should be allowed to speak, citing principles of free speech.

I would try and approach the same attorney that represented the group that brought Bill Ayers to the UW campus. It is more of a 1st Amendment violation than anything else, political or not.
