Students at Brown University vehemently objected to a speech by conservative pundit Guy Benson, saying he enables “white supremacist and fascist ideas” by supporting free speech.
The 18 students, calling themselves “A Collective of Students at Brown University,” wrote an open letter slamming Benson’s appearance at Brown Tuesday night, even preemptively arguing that the event violates the Student Code of Conduct.
fascists out of how many students? Again, it is important to remember how few these snowflakes are in number. Yes, they are loud, obnoxious, self-obsessed, and bigots, but they are few. The people who agitate me more than these snowflakes are the ones that cater and bow to them. Placating these miscreants is inexcusable. Now, back to the latest outbreak of Selective Outrage Syndrome
The letter first attacks Benson’s support for freedom of speech, specifically referencing his view that hate speech should not be limited by the government.
“Based on our research into the speaker, we anticipate that Benson will make arguments in support of the freedom of any person to make hateful, oppressive, or damaging remarks based on their constitutionally protected right to free speech,” the students fume.
They then contend that the event is an insult to the history of student activism at Brown, declaring that they “will not stand idly by as our proud history of student activism is belittled and the real emotional, physical, and psychological needs of marginalized students are denigrated as illogical and irrelevant.”
The letter goes on to say that the “conversation” surrounding free speech is “explicitly dangerous to the well-being and continued thriving of people of color and other marginalized people.”
In other words free speech for them, but not for anyone who holds different views. Their perverse definition of free speech would make their role model, Marx very happy
“So often, popular conversations around free speech focus on the right of people with power or who hold privileged identities (i.e. who are white, or cisgender men, or wealthy, or able bodied, etc.) to espouse hateful rhetoric which actively makes others less safe,” the students assert. “Rarely do these mainstream conversations on free speech consider the urgent need for people of color and other marginalized people to speak back against systems of oppression for their own self-preservation.”
This is, of course nuclear grade BS. Everyone is free to speak, and these leftists i training have no problem being heard do they? If you wish to really delve into the abject madness of these perpetually aggrieved degenerates go read their whole whining screed
Hint, you might wish to wear hip waders as the babbling idiocy gets very deep
