H 333 would revoke scholarships for student protesters

George Orwell would be impressed:

Any student enrolled at the constituent institution who, while present on the property of the constituent institution during a protest or demonstration, is found to have engaged in activity in violation of G.S.14-127or G.S.14-132(a)(2) shall have revoked and withdrawn from his or her benefit all State-supported scholarships or any State funds granted to him or her for educational assistance as required by G.S.116-300(7).

The Committee on Free Expression shall report to the public, the Board of Governors, the Governor, and the General Assembly by September 1 of every year.

Bolding mine, because I somehow forgot about this patently absurd Orwellian concoction from four years ago. Under the guise of "protecting" the free speech of conservatives on campus, this was created to keep other students from freely speaking against them. Republicans wouldn't know genuine freedom if it crawled into their lap and gave them a big wet kiss.
