University of Wisconsin passes new policy to protect freedom of speech, Leftist bullies hardest hit

If you want to see the mental depravity of Leftism, read The Root, and feel the hate. The Root is a place you can go and see how hateful and bigoted the Left is. It is a place you can go and discover what the Left really thinks of America, law enforcement, and individual liberty. Take for example how writer Angela Helm paints a policy to allow college speakers to, well, speak without being shut down by Brownshirt wearing thugs

The University of Wisconsin recently approved a policy that will suspend or expel students who disrupt campus speeches and presentations—because they are infringing on others’ free speech—an ironic and dangerous threat to the right to protest everywhere.

Apparently Helm cannot read, The policy would suspend or expel those that disrupt speeches or presentations. Or, I would imagine peaceful protests. In short it would prevent violent, threatening thugs like Antifa from crushing free speech. In fact the policy says (emphasis mine)

The Associated Press reports that the university’s board of regents adopted the language in a vote Friday. The policy states that students found to have twice engaged in “violence or other disorderly conduct” would be suspended. Three times and you’re out (expelled).

So, what is the problem here? We have seen that several events on campuses have drawn violent protests. Is Helm advocating for violence? Or does she just turn a blind eye when certain speech is silenced? Free speech is great, when it suits her ideological bent I suppose. Typical Leftist. Of course Helm is not the only one crying foul

State public schools Superintendent Tony Evers, on the board by virtue of his position, and a Democratic candidate running against Walker in next year’s gubernatorial election, cast the only dissenting vote.

“This policy will chill and suppress free speech on this campus and all campuses,” Evers said.

Uh, actually the only chilling of free speech now is being done be Antifa and like-minded fascists. this policy would hold those who are actually suppressing free speech accountable

“Who’s going to show up to a protest if they think they could be potentially expelled?” asked Democratic state Rep. Chris Taylor.

Apparent Taylor does not know what words like “violent” or “disorderly conduct” mean

A senior at the university, Savion Castro, accused the regents of “capitulating to a band of right-wing extremists.”

Sure Savion, sure, because allowing people you disagree with to speak is bad right? The policy would also protect people who agree with Savion from having their speeches attacked. See Savion, you ignorant, hateful little fuck, everyone has a right to speak, it is called liberty. And liberty trumps your over inflated sense of self-importance. And the most telling aspect of this discussion is this. Leftist speakers never seem to need any protection from violent thugs. But that does not go both ways. Hmmmmmm

I’m a Victim, He’s a Victim, She’s a Victim, Wouldn’t You Like to be a Victim too?

As you watch this, just substitute the word victim for pepper

Why is being a victim, or at least pretending to be a victim, and telling everyone within earshot how big a victim you are, so popular with people on the left? 

If you are a person who partakes in watching, and trying to understand the Left, you have no doubt asked yourself that question. And if you are a person who does the research, and looks at stats, and simply observes people you might have come to the same conclusion I have. The vast majority of people claiming victim status are not victims or racism/sexism/Homophobia/Islamophobia/ Transphobia or any of the dozens of other “Isms” and “phobias” the left has manufactured over the last thirty years.

Victim hood, and the selling of victim hood has become an industry of sorts. People like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and many other leftist activists have found that if they can convince a certain demographic, be it gender, racial, religious, sexual orientation, or socio-economic, that everything about them is defined by their “identity”, they can then convince that same group that they are victims. Victims who can only be helped by the very people, or groups that have convinced them of their victim status to begin with.

Once they have created enough “victims” They may then begin profiting in one way or another, from keeping those victims perpetually aggrieved, and angry. They are, in a way the slave masters of the 21st century. They shackle people with their “identity”, and then with a feeling of helplessness and  victimhood. They then use their power to get elected, sell books, raise donations, or gain influence or power, in short, it is all about the Benjamins, not helping anyone. If they really wished to help they would shut up, and start looking for actual solutions to actual problems. But, again, the Benjamins.

The victim-creating has become such a big business that now the Victim-Pimps are exploiting naive college students, attending very prestigious, and expensive universities that they too are victims. Anyone, anywhere who reads, or hears something that offends them is now a victim too. Even if you are not a victim, you will be!

If your candidate did not win an election? VICTIM!

If you pull a gun on, or try to take a police officer’s gun and get shot, VICTIM!

Someone chooses not to take part in your Gay wedding? VICTIM!

Your school invites someone with whom you disagree ideologically, to give  a speech? VICTIM!

If you are a woman Feminist and attractive, and a man notices you, VICTIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If a historical statue, monument, song, or holiday notes that at one time Southern states, for varying reasons, seceded and fought a war for that right? VICTIMS!!!!! VICTIMS EVERYWHERE!

If millions of Americans choose to legally buy, own, or carry firearms for self-defense? VICTIMS!!!!!

If you are transgender and anyone dares use a pronoun that refers to a specific gender? VICTIMS!

In fact there are so many victims now, that well, you likely are one, even if you do not feel victimized. Here are a few warning signs

If you are of any skin color, except White! YOU are a victim.

If you are of any gender, yes any of the 57, except male of course, unless of course you are Gay, or a male trying to become a female, then you are a victim.

If you are of any sexual orientation, VICTIM! Well, unless you happen to be straight of course, you sick freak!

If you are told that anyone except those that completely agree with you has a right to express their views………Oh yeah!

If you are triggered, by anything, VICTIM!

If you are a woman, well, then the Patriarchy is victimizing you every time a man looks at you, talks to you, asks you out, compliments you, treats you nicely, or well, breathes in your direction!

I wonder why anyone would want to be like these folks. Seriously (language warning) but this guy gets it!

The saddest thing is that these wannabe victims fail to see who their real victimizers are. They, for some inexplicable reason prefer pretending to be victims, than about throwing off the chains their actual victimizers are tying them down with.

Just another example of how Leftism destroys everything it touches

U.S. State Department Uses British IslamoNazi’s Pro-Sharia Law Photograph To Promote Free Speech (Video)

Internet Gaffe By U.S. government As UK Extremist’s Sharia Law Photo Used In Free Speech Ad – Daily Mail

The U.S. government has made a bizarre internet gaffe by posting a British Muslim extremist’s photograph of veiled women calling for sharia law, citing it as an inspirational example of free speech in the West.

The American State Department’s ‘Think Again Turn Away’ campaign is designed to dissuade Muslims from joining IS – also known as ISIS – and other extreme groups.

The campaign posted the picture on its Twitter account last week, adding: ‘In open societies, all faiths enjoy freedom of speech; under ISIS rule, no such thing as freedom of expression.’

.

.
The photograph shows Muslim women, all in black burkas, running a stall in Dalston, East London. They are standing behind a trestle table covered in leaflets and a banner reading: ‘Shariah law or man made law. Which is better for mankind?’

An investigation by The Mail on Sunday has found the banner was used in an extremist campaign called Stay Muslim, Don’t Vote, which calls for strict sharia law to be imposed on Britain, as well as urging Muslims not to vote in elections.

The photo was given the caption ‘Muslims coming out inviting society to Islam’ – which was copied by the U.S. State Department – by a man calling himself Abdulrahman Muhajir, whose Twitter account is suspended.

.
…………………..

.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal he is Moshiur Rahman, a 33-year-old from Luton, who last year was one of 12 Islamists given Asbos banning them from taking part in demonstrations over a violent protest rally on Oxford Street. At least two of the gang are believed to be fighting for IS in Syria.

Anjem Choudary – the hate preacher who has repeatedly blamed British foreign policy for terrorist attacks and whose al-Muhajiroun group was banned by the Government – was present at the event in Dalston on March 7. He has also given talks in Walthamstow and East Ham at demonstrations where the sign was used.

The photo appropriated by the U.S. State Department was first placed on Twitter last week by a woman calling herself Umm Usmaan, who is a leading figure in the anti-democracy campaign.

She described it as an ‘Islamic roadshow’ and included the slogan ‘stay Muslim, don’t vote’ when she put the photo on Twitter.

Yesterday she posted a picture of another sign with the message: ‘The right of legislation belongs to none but Allah!’

Last night, terror expert Douglas Murray, associate director of the Henry Jackson Society think-tank, said: ‘It’s an incredibly weak “fail”,’ he said. ‘They should be putting a bit more thought into their sourcing. With all of our resources, it’s not even as accomplished as the crudest IS propaganda.’

US Twitter users were also quick to ridicule the State Department, with one calling it an ‘epic fail’. Conservative U.S. commentator Mark Steyn added: ‘Why is the State Department promoting sharia for the United Kingdom? Aren’t they supposed to uphold the Constitution of the United States? Sharia’s incompatible with that constitution, as it is with the legal inheritance of Western civilisation.’

The State Department did not respond to requests to comment yesterday.

Harvard Crimson Columnist: Free Speech Should Be Abolished On Campus Because It Threatens Liberalism

Harvard Writer: Free Speech Threatens Liberalism And Must Be Destroyed – Daily Caller

If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps.

.

.
Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson.

In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism.

“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” asked Korn in her column.

The column’s subtitle was even more direct: “Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice.”

Korn cited several instances of perspectives that clashed with her own being banned from campus as triumphant examples of the way Harvard should be run. The firing of Subramanian Swamy, a Harvard summer school instructor who was dismissed for his anti-Islamic views, was one such triumph.

She also invoked the academic boycott of Israel – something condemned by Harvard President Drew Faust and numerous other university presidents – as an example of the kind of tactics leftists should defend and use in order to get their way on campus.

Korn did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Her sharp rejection of intellectual freedom – a value enshrined by U.S. law and central to the success of American institutions of higher learning – is common among left-wing activists at elite colleges. Last week, Erin Ching, a sophomore at Swarthmore College, took a similar view when she criticized her university for committing the unforgivable crime of allowing a conservative – Christian thinker Robert George – to speak on campus.

“What really bothered me is, the whole idea is that at a liberal arts college, we need to be hearing a diversity of opinion,” she said, according to the Daily Gazette. “I don’t think we should be tolerating [George’s] conservative views because that dominant culture embeds these deep inequalities in our society.”

George, a Swarthmore alumnus, came to campus to debate Cornell West.

Pro-life students at the University of Alabama were victims of a similar belief that conservative views should not be publicly espoused on campus.

And at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, merely emailing an inoffensive .gif of President Barack Obama kicking a door triggers an investigation. The perpetrator was forced to apologize for committing a racial insensitivity.
