The executive action is appropriate as long as these institutions receive FEDERAL money. Since all the original state constitutions were patterned after the federal constitution, I doubt any state allows such institutions the right to restrict speech either because of property taxes. If such an institution receives NEITHER federal nor state money, then that institution can restrict speech as it deems appropriate.

These quasi-private institutions have only themselves to blame for allowing such incestuous relationships with governments, both state and federal ... again, the definition of FASCISM.
