What happened to the Right of Free Speech on American college campuses?

 

Free Speech – 1st Amendment

When riots break out in the streets of Berkley to prevent Breitbart Senior Editor MILO Yiannopoulos from giving a talk on campus, it raises awareness that action must be taken to allow free speech to thrive in America. Those who attempt to shut down free speech, for any reason, must be stopped. This attempt to obscure Milo’s ideas has actually increased interest to hear what he has to say.

 

College Campus Disgrace

Walter E. Williams, professor of economics at George Mason University, wrote an article titled  ‘College Campus Disgrace’ where he discusses the University of Nebraska Omaha’s workshop for “anti-racist allies”, Black students at the University of Michigan demanding “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work, among others.

Another example Mr Williams provides is a comment by Bob Lange, an associate professor emeritus of physics and an adjunct associate professor at Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management says, “It is not terrorism to kill representatives of a government that you are opposed to.” Lange maintained that the 2012 terrorist attacks on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya — which killed four people and injured 10 others — were “not terrorism.”

A human sexuality professor at Orange Coast College, Olga Perez Stable Cox, was recorded telling her students that Donald Trump’s election was an “act of terrorism” because he is a “white supremacist” and Vice President Mike Pence “is one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.”

In Dennis Prager’s column titled “Why Professors Object to Being Recorded,” Prager says: “Our colleges and universities (and an increasing number of high schools and elementary schools) have been transformed from educational institutions into indoctrination institutions. With the left-wing takeover of universities, their primary aim has become graduating as many leftists as possible.” He adds: “Most professors objecting to being recorded know on some level that they are persuasive only when their audience is composed largely of very young people just out of high school. They know that if their ideas are exposed to adults, they may be revealed as intellectual lightweights.”

“What’s going on at the nation’s colleges represents a threat to both liberty and academic excellence. It is a gross dereliction of duty for legislators, donors and decent Americans to allow it to continue.”

Liberty is Not for Snowflakes

Walter E. Williams states “At least two-thirds of federal spending can be described as Congress’ taking the rightful property of one American and giving it to another American, to whom it does not belong. Congress has no resources of its very own. If Congress gives one person something that he did not earn, it necessarily requires that Congress deprive somebody else of something that he did earn.”

Colleges lead the nation in attacks on free speech. Some surveys report that over 50 percent of college students want restrictions on speech they find offensive. It takes a bold person to be for personal liberty, because you have to be able to cope with people saying things and engaging in voluntary acts that you deem offensive. Liberty is not for wimps, or snowflakes. Read Walter E. William’s full article

Illegal Immigration

I used to have no patience with people who break the immigration laws, by sneaking in. If people are willing to break the law to enter a country or if people support those who do, what does that say about their character? If they are willing to break the law in this regard, how many other times will they be willing to break the law?

However, after digging deeper, now I feel compassion for illegal immigrants because America shares responsibility. America built a system that entices, encourages, enables, supports and rewards illegal immigration.

Political Correctness

Political correctness is an organized system of lying designed to save some feelings at the expense of reason, logic, truth, and often the safety of others. For decades, the progressive left has bullied those with different opinions to keep silent for fear of being branded a racist, bigot, facist etc.. The recent election of Trump is bringing a necessary correction to the progressive left that has so long had a stranglehold on the media, academia, and the entertainment industry.

Grievance and Victimhood Business

For the love of money, fame and power, the elite progressive media, academia, entertainment industry and many in public life generally, have a vested interest in precipitating and continuing the race war in this country.

The grievance and victimhood business, where, race-baiters, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton made their fame and fortunes, supersedes reason, truth and logic, but is still alive and well among the left.

Famous left politician Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren lied about having a native american heritage to get listed in the minority section of a law teachers for-hire directory which led to a Harvard law job.

Famous left NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal lied about being black to gain advantages. Privileges for being black range from experiencing ‘affirmative grading’ by college professors, to landing internships and coveted college scholarships, to building profitable activist carriers on racial grievances like Sharpton and Jackson.

A business with a minority female listed as owner, immediately moves to the top of the list when competing for coveted government contracts.

Claiming to be a member of any, even vaguely minority, identity, puts one on the fast track to profit, power and advantage in an era where victimhood and grievance have become currency in an America bolstered by the progressive left.

Black Lives Matter

Bolstered by Obama and the progressive left, BLM is the culmination of the racial divide pioneered by Jackson and Sharpton. BLM is the last socially acceptable hate group in America.

Dedicated to division, segregation and racial hatred, BLM marches on the streets calling for the death of white police officers, then receive praise in gushing essays from the pandering press the next morning while the police officers, whose job it is to mop up the mess, get called ‘institutional racists’. They’ve taken the opportunism of their predecessors and added the worst identity politics of feminism and marxism to the mix. Leadership is loose and evasive especially, if trying to find where the donations went. They hate capitalism, the police, and the rule of law. Led by Shaun King, the ultimate BLM opportunist, and another white man masquerading as black for personal gain, BLM has only succeeded in further alienating the races from one another, leaving black cities in ruins, and has set race relations back several decades.

Highly respected black lawmen, Sherif David Clark, says “BLM has no more to do with black issues than students for a democratic society have to do with democracy. They are a means to an end, and they use the black population as sacrifices for their goals.”

My Black Heroes

True black leaders for whom I have great respect and admiration:
Dr Martin Luther King, Dr Ben Carson, CJ Pearson, Jason Reily, Amy Holmes, Jesse Lee Peterson, Elisha Crews, Kevin Jackson, Markeece Young, Nestor Djonkam, Thomas Sowell, T.D. Jakes, Larry Elder, Alan Lee Keyes, Condoleezza Rice, Renee Summerour, DeJuan Hoggard, Tommy Sotomayor, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Clyde Hughes, Tiffany Sanders, Gianno Caldwell, Lawrence B.Jones III, Antonia Okafor, Niger Innis, Charles V Payne, Harris Faulkner, David Webb, David A. Clarke, Jr, Walter E. Williams, Herman Cain, Minister Cage, Tim Summers, Pastor Mark Burns, Justice Clarence Thomas, Ty Burnz, and growing …..

 

Transgender Bathrooms

Another bright idea from the left with which I totally disagree. Women, girls and children must be protected from having men who are confused about their sexual identities in their bathrooms.

 

the ‘Gay Wedding Cake’

Forcing a baker, against their will, to make a gay wedding cake is as wrong as it would be to force a gay baker to bake a cake with a homophobic slur.  First, it’s unnecessary because there are plenty of bakers who would be happy to do the job. Second, it’s an infringement of freedom to require businesses to aid in the promotion of ideas.

the Solution

America has been steadily declining for decades while being led by left elites who believe that skin color, sexuality and gender are more important than who we really are. America at it’s best is devoted to the umbrella of values that made this country wonderful such as capitalism, property rights and free speech, all enshrined in the constitution and amendments.

Soundly reject all propositions of the left. Disallow left elitists to fixate on that which separates us, which divides us by those insane identity categories to control how we see the world, only resulting in Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee and Ferguson. Instead focus on what brings us together, that which takes America to the moon and builds the internet!
