Should outsiders try to influence the hiring or tenuring of university faculty?

Reader comment on item: Redeeming the Wayward University [through Engagement by Outsiders]

Absolutely. Freedom of speech and freedom of association should be on an equal footing. Students' freedom to attend classes is more curtailed than a professsor's freedom to indoctrinate.

Would anyone stand by while a licensed physician openly advocated a medical procedure which would more than likely kill a patient, a procedure based solely on that physician's obviously undocumented whim?
