Is it ridiculous that an Australian student can be suspended from an Australian university for expressing anti-Chinese Government opinions?

The University of Queensland have suspended Drew Pavlou for two years and removed him from his elected position on the UQ Senate because he expressed anti-Chinese Communist Party sentiments online. The uni are saying that they have to kick him out because they don't want other students being intimidated. If that is the case then why didn't they chuck out the Chinese thugs who beat up pro-Hong Kong demonstrators?

The University of Queensland generate 20% of their revenue from international Chinese students which means they have to bend over backwards for them. The CPC have a dangerous amount of power and influence over Australian educational institutions, it is a genuine national security concern.

Australian universities are now actively anti-democracy and anti-free speech. This is outrageous people, reclaim your educational institutions.

    Australian universities only get foreigners into Australia now. It's the core business.

    It is ridiculous to any fair minded person.  Even though we agree only some of the time this is an example of where you are right.

      False. The Greens in Australia have been the most outspoken about his suspension and they are far-left. Most university educated people in the UK are conservative. You do realise capitalism was created by British academics?

    I notice you didn't quote what the student said. My guess is that it was racist, not a rational discussion of communism.

      You shouldn’t jump to conclusions. He used some choice language but it wasn’t racist. He burnt a book about Xi Jinping but that isn’t racist or illegal either. He is just very outspoken about the Chinese government, and with justification. Now his university wants to silence him.
