Sci-Fi Geeks And Free Speech Trump Political Correctness And Stupid University Officials (At Least This Time)

We have to be on guard against political correctness at all times.  Fortunately, here's one fight won by the good guys:

Yes, I'm a fan of Firefly.  Yes, I'm a fan of free speech.  Yes, I get tremendous enjoyment out of seeing political correctness and liberal authoritarians lose.  This video is like Christmas all over again.

But the guy was correct at the end there - we need to stand up when we see these things happen, even if we're not fans of Firefly or whatever the issue of the moment may be.  When free speech and Constitutional rights are being threatened, that's all the reason we should need to stand up for (or against) something.  Generally speaking, it's only a matter of time until something we love or rely on is targeted by authoritarian liberals, and since most of us don't have a built in constituency like Firefly, it would be good to know that other Americans will stand with us simply on principle.
