If You Think Campus Free Speech Is No Big Deal, Watch This Shocking Vice News Report From Evergreen State College

 

http://reason.com/blog/2017/06/17/if-you-think-campus-free-speech-is-no-bi

Michael Moynihan finds students scared to express "nuanced" ideas, a progressive professor demonized as a racist, protesters mocking "free speech", and a college president who cannot rule out that he might be a white supremacist

 

Are you one of those people who suspects that all the brouhaha over campus free speech outrages, no matter how individually insane the stories, might be exaggerated in the aggregate when it comes to prevalence and effect? It's OK—I am one of those people, despite writing about the subject on occasion and reading all the fine work done at Reason by Robby Soave and other colleagues.

Or I should say, I was one of those people, before watching Thursday's Vice News segment from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, where (as Ben Haller has written here previously) things have gone pear-shaped ever since a lone white professor refused to stay home during an activist "Day of Absence" for those with pallid skin pigment. Vice News correspondent (and former Reasoner/current Fifth ColumnistMichael Moynihan visited the embattled campus to query the antagonists in the controversy, and the results are stunning, infuriating, bananas.

This is what happens when people who have never experienced actual racism think they know what racism is. Demanding a day of segregation is absurd and in itself RACIST. These fucking idiots are so horrified by racism their solution to it is fucking racism! Seriously these far left people have become everything they supposedly hate fascists and racists.

Weirdos and misfits unite for a fictitious cause to engage in a mutual exchange of ignorance.
