Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Free speech? No thanks, we’re liberals

The young man assaulted at Berkeley for being conservative speaks his piece.

As a field representative for the Leadership Institute, I travel to campuses throughout California helping conservative clubs recruit and train new members. I’ve seen the intolerance and hate toward conservatives on our  campuses with my own eyes, and the only difference between what happened to me on Feb. 19 and every other day is that the event was caught on video.

Conservative students across the country have suffered verbal and physical assault, social ostracism and even academic persecution for voicing their opinions on political topics. This is because young liberals believe that they are on the morally righteous side in a culture war and, in order to win, they must silence any form of dissent.

Well, no, you just missed. Actually, it’s because they’re fascists.

Increasingly, leftists believe they are justified to respond to ideas disagreeable to them with open hostility and even force.  Students are commonly told now that words are literally violent and can be responded to with physical force. I don’t mean verbal threats of violence or efforts to intimidate, I mean words that express ideas that the listener finds offensive or disagrees with.

NOW you’re getting it, son.

The message that provoked my attacker was our sign that read “Hate Crime Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims,” a reference to the  recent case of Jussie Smollett, who was charged by Chicago police with filing a false police report about an apparently fictitious attack. My attacker said we were promoting violence, which, in his view, gives him permission to use any means necessary to shut us down. The irony is that the sign was intended to warn of the danger of disregarding facts and jumping to judgment in an effort to confirm a narrative our feelings tell us is true.

No, the irony is that this Progtard putz expressed his putative opposition to “promoting violence” using…wait for it…actual violence.

Really, though, I ain’t picking on young Hayden with these minor quibbles. He’s out there putting his ass on the line, walking the walk, fighting the good fight against the violent Left’s Hitlerjugend v2.0, and I applaud him for it. He’s got guts, and I wish him nothing but the best.
