Norfolk, Va. – Like President Trump’s Twitter feed, Texas A&M University’s Facebook page is a forum open to the public. The school admits that it censored comments from PETA and others because we have voiced our opposition to its cruel muscular dystrophy experiments on dogs. Texas A&M appears to have censored public discourse because it doesn’t like PETA’s truthful statements about the university’s breeding and tormenting of crippled dogs. The Trump Twitter ruling is an irrefutable message to government officials who are banning dissenting views: You need to stop. If the president of the United States can’t violate the First Amendment, it should be clear to Texas A&M officials that they can’t, either.
