‘More Fascist-Left Speech Repression’

“The violence and brutalization of political opponents is a new phenomenon in American politics, but it is becoming increasingly common, and it has a historical antecedent: the Nazi ‘Brownshirts’. In “The Coming of the Third Reich”, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts)

“organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

“To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).

“That is just the kind of public arena that the Left has been trying to bring to the United States for years — particularly on college campuses.

“But I’ll be at Truman State University today anyway, facing down the fascists, unless the university cancels my event at the last minute. That is, however, unlikely, as university administrators have already attempted to appease the Left-fascists by scheduling a lecture by Faizan Syed of the ‘Hamas’-linked ‘Council on American-Islamic Relations’, right before mine…

“I also hereby invite Syed to a public discussion or debate of the relevant issues, either at Truman State University or at any other venue. He will either contemptuously refuse or ignore the invitation altogether. This is because Leftists today, and their Islamic supremacist allies…wish only to smear, demonize and marginalize those whom they hate. They have no interest in honest, equitable discussion and dialogue. That should tell the students at Truman State University something. However, students today are so used now to that kind of treatment being meted out to those who are dissenters from the establishment line that they will probably welcome it, and cheer Syed on.

“If the Left-fascists at Truman State succeed in beating me up, will it prove them right? No. Will it demonstrate their moral superiority? Quite the contrary. Will it stop me from speaking? Absolutely not. And even if they kill me, others will keep on telling the truths they hate. They can’t kill us all, although I fully expect that in the long run they will try…”

“Freedom of speech is a core principle of our free society. But everywhere we look, there are signs this freedom is being suppressed.

“Our Parliament just passed a controversial ‘Liberal’ motion to condemn the loosely-defined {? You mean ‘incoherent’} “Islamophobia”, despite a lack of consensus amongst Canadians about what the term even means.

“One of Canada’s top universities caved to the perpetually-offended mob and accepted the resignation from one of its scholars. The reason? Professor and former journalist Andrew Potter wrote an article that was too critical of Quebec.

“And just a few weeks ago, a young campus activist in Alberta was condemned and removed from his position after sending an email that was offensive to feminists.

“These are more than just isolated incidents. They’re just three of dozens of readily available examples of a political correctness mob run amok.

“The breakdown of freedom of speech on campus is particularly concerning.

“University is supposed to be a place to explore and discuss new ideas – including controversial ones. But rather than challenging the opinions of young people and preparing them for the real world, universities are quickly devolving into bastions of intolerant group-think.

“Trigger warnings and safe spaces have become the norm, and speech codes and bans on offensive language are being discussed and promoted by university officials.

“Alongside this crackdown on supposed hate speech, conservative events on campuses across North America are being met with violent mobs and shut down by self-described ‘anti-fascists’.

“Irony is lost on these little emperors as they cry fascism over conservative ideas while using force to silence opinions they deem unacceptable.

“The anti-speech mob is getting more and more popular. For years, I have been speaking on university campuses about my book, “Generation Screwed”. The book chronicles the economic doom facing young people in Canada, and provides ideas and solutions for rescuing our fiscal future.

“Many university campuses now have their own ‘Generation Screwed’ clubs, where students get together to talk about how to tackle problems like massive government debt, high taxes and a slumping economy, while also dabbling in topics like freedom of speech and the modern campus environment.

“The people attending these events are not extremists. They are regular students worried about their future. Yet, even these student-run events have become a target for the political correctness mob.

“Last month, a ‘Generation Screwed Action Forum’ at the University of Toronto was first disrupted by the mob – who marched into the auditorium chanting slogans and accusing the speakers of being ‘white supremacists’ – and was eventually shut down.

“The darlings of the Left opted to pull the fire alarm and force the evacuation of the conference rather than allow students to hear opinions counter to their own.

“Of course, that didn’t stop the final speaker, Ezra Levant, from carrying on his discussion outside in sub-zero temperatures.

“This weekend, I will be speaking at the ‘Generation Screwed Action Forum’ at the University of Calgary – that is, if the anti-speech mafia allows for it.

“What these little tyrants fail to understand is that free speech will prevail. The more they use force to shut down events they don’t like, the more intrigue and interest there will be in these ideas.

“The hysterics of ‘social justice’ warriors and anti-fascist fascists are back-firing and helping to drive more people towards conservative ideas.

“That’s because free speech trumps political correctness, even on a university campus.”
