Such is the drift of universities in the US and here in Australia into totalitarianism that such free speech is now damned as too traumatic to allow.
The president of California State University, Los Angeles recently held a “healing space” meeting where a professor claimed students felt ''traumatized'' and ''brutalized'' following an on-campus lecture by Ben Shapiro, a conservative commentator and former Breitbart News editor. Do you believe this stupidity actually showing that this generation has shit-for-brains.A video released Thursday by the Young America’s Foundation showed the May 17 meeting, in which university President William Covino (below) brainstormed with faculty on ways to block speakers such as Mr. Shapiro from visiting the school in the future, The Blaze reported.“I would have never invited anybody like Ben Shapiro on campus. Never,” Mr. Covino said in the clip. “He was invited by students, he was funded by students, he was supported by students. I would have never invited anybody like Ben Shapiro.”Professor Melinda Abdullah, chair of the college’s Pan-African Studies department, told Mr. Covino, “This is kind of this ongoing conversation about the specificity of anti-blackness, and that’s I think what we see with Ben Shapiro.”She then this scum-bitch called Mr. Shapiro a “neo-Nazi.”“I get he’s Jewish, so that’s ironic that I’m calling him a neo-Nazi,” she said. “But that’s basically what he is, the equivalent. A neo-KKK member — let’s call him that.''“Students come into my office feeling traumatized, feeling brutalized — physically,
emotionally and mentally,” Ms. Abdullah said. (below)
Note the craven and scurrilous use of race politics - the vicious abuse - to silence conservatives who actually denounce racism. More of the same hatred of free speech from ideologues terrified at having to defend their Marxist creed.
The Way I See It........the young and the ignorant will always hanker for a new, more perfect world order. They will, in their ignorance and romanticism, deny the idea that conflict is inherent to human nature, believing instead that we can live in harmony as one. It’s a lovely little fairy tale, one that the late Senator Brown narrated so well in his little book ''Earth…''
It is the prerogative of the young to be idealistic. And it’s the duty of the old to point out their error, to teach them about Mao’s Red Guard, the Hitler Youth Movement and the teenaged peasants of Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge and the millions of people that were murdered in the process.
