Architect Of Biden’s Anti MAGA Speech Sits On UT’s Civics Institute Board

Sep 14, 2022 | Political News

We recently reported that UT System President Randy Boyd appointed two former Tennessee Governors, Phil Bredesen and Bill Haslam, to sit on the board for the university’s Institute for American Civics.

Boyd said in a press release that he wants the board and the Institute to be a “beacon of light for civil discourse, viewpoint diversity and civic engagement.”

However, with at least one of the board’s other members, there may be a significant conflict of interest.

One of the appointees, Jon Meacham, who is a visiting professor and co-chair of Vanderbilt University’s Project on Unity and American Democracy, is also one of the architects behind President Joe Biden’s speech that labeled MAGA Republicans as being a “threat” to America.
