A Tennessee lawmaker, advocating for a free-speech bill, said that terrorist organizations should be allowed to recruit on college campuses under the First Amendment.
Republican lawmaker state Rep. Martin Daniel said ISIS recruitment activities were akin to “being exposed to differing viewpoints.”
While presenting a billed dubbed the “Tennessee Student Free Speech Protection Act,” Rep. Martin Daniel, R-Knoxville, fielded a question from Rep. John DeBerry Jr., D-Memphis, about whether he believed ISIS should be able to stand in the middle of university campuses and “recruit for ISIS.”
“Yes,” Daniel replied. “So long as it doesn’t disrupt the proceedings on that campus. Yes sir. They can recruit people for any other organization or any other cause. I think it’s just part of being exposed to differing viewpoints.”
