Sorry, I didn’t see this thread and posted links and video in your other Missouri thread. Are these people a small cadre of the Missouri protesters? I thought these were the protesters occupying the quad where the one guy is on a hunger strike. These students are just as wacky as the Yale protesters. This “safe space” concept has run amok.

Check out this video:

Master Christakis: So who gets to decide what’s offensive? Who get’s to decide guys?

Student: When it hurts me. When it’s offensive to me.

Yale Silliman College Master Christakis stands up to Cry-Bullies

Watch all four videos. Video 3: “Walk away.” “He doesn’t deserve to be listened to.”

The New Intolerance of Student Activism

Everyone invested in how the elites of tomorrow are being acculturated should understand, as best they can, how so many cognitively privileged, ordinarily kind, seemingly well-intentioned young people could lash out with such flagrant intolerance.

Yawn. “Freedom of Speech” in the US has always meant: “freedom to say stuff the ruling class is comfortable with”. Now that other people are starting to assert their right to shut down uncomfortable speech, it’s suddenly a thing.

Free Speech on Campus: The 10 Worst Offenders of 2014

College is the place where students should be encouraged to, as Yale promises, “think the unthinkable, discuss the unmentionable, and challenge the unchallengeable.” Unfortunately, schools all across the country not only fall short on promises of free expression and academic freedom but openly suppress constitutionally protected speech on campus by using tools such as speech codes to shut down forms of expression that might be uncomfortable, disagreeable, or even offensive to some members of the campus community.

To give a clearer picture of campus censorship, we at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) today announce our fourth annual list of the top 10 threats to free speech on campus.

While I explained in December why I think 2014 might be remembered as the “Year of the Heckler,” the most significant event for FIRE last year was the launch of our ambitious and large-scale Stand Up for Speech Litigation Project. In order to try to end the problem of campus speech codes once and for all, students and faculty members worked with the law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine to file lawsuits against six colleges, including Ohio University, Iowa State University, Chicago State University, the University of Hawaii at Hilo, Citrus College in California, and, most recently, Western Michigan University. …

Chris Rock interview:

What do you make of the attempt to bar Bill Maher from speaking at Berkeley for his riff on Muslims?

Well, I love Bill, but I stopped playing colleges, and the reason is because they’re way too conservative.

In their political views?

Not in their political views — not like they’re voting Republican — but in their social views and their willingness not to offend anybody. Kids raised on a culture of “We’re not going to keep score in the game because we don’t want anybody to lose.” Or just ignoring race to a fault. You can’t say “the black kid over there.” No, it’s “the guy with the red shoes.” You can’t even be offensive on your way to being inoffensive.

When did you start to notice this?

About eight years ago. Probably a couple of tours ago. It was just like, This is not as much fun as it used to be. I remember talking to George Carlin before he died and him saying the exact same thing. …

PC Principal from South Park

Hope no one is missing the best season of South Park yet. Their take on the current PC war has been a rare glimpse of sanity in an otherwise incoherent screaming match.

I don’t really watch South Park even though I should. I did see this episode and it was hilarious! I also saw the Donald Trump one and that was great too. It’s amazing that after all these years they are at the top of their game. That seems unprecedented in show biz. I’m going to get the rest of this season and watch them all.
