Donald Trump Jr. blasted American universities for reigning in free speech and distorting traditional values, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram newspaper.

In an address for a University of North Texas scholarship fundraiser, Trump said: "A lot of other universities don't teach civility or intellectual openness anymore. They've become captive to political hatreds. That's how innocent questions become verbal assaults."

He claimed colleges have turned "traditional" values into "hate speech," according to the newspaper.

"Hate speech," he said, "is anything that says America is a good country and our founders were great people, that we need borders. Hate speech is anything faithful to the moral teaching of the Bible."

Trump said universities often make a bad deal with parents: "We'll take $200,000 of your money; in exchange we'll train your children to hate our country  . . . we'll indoctrinate them and punish them if they disagree with us . . . We'll make them unemployable by teaching them courses in zombie studies, underwater basket weaving and, my personal favorite, tree climbing — but that's only because it's deer season," he said.

Trump, who was paid $100,000 for the speech, praised UNT for its integrity, according to the newspaper.
