If you publicly express the idea that you have a right to own a gun or think people should have to show I.D. before they vote, you might deserve the violence progressive activists seek to inflict upon you. It’s hard too see a recent op-ed published by the N.Y. Times as anything other than glaring support of violent anti-free speech “protests” that have been silencing skeptics of the progressive faith. While it’s not exactly shocking that the Times would publish such an article, it does reflect how rapidly the left is moving towards acceptance of violent authoritarianism.
In an article entitled “What Snowflakes Get Right About Free Speech” an essentially fascist professor, Ulrich Baer, of New York University argues that students are right to shut down speech.
Free-speech protections — not only but especially in universities, which aim to educate students in how to belong to various communities — should not mean that someone’s humanity, or their right to participate in political speech as political agents, can be freely attacked, demeaned or questioned.
Ulrich then claims that Ben Carson saying that that transgender people are men and women in disguise, invalidates their humanity. It gets even crazier, he then claims that Trump calling the media “enemies of the American people” delegitimizes whole groups of people thus constituting hate speech. Literally, the next paragraph, Ulrich hypocritically infers that the historical model of free speech that most Americans support is a “clear and present danger to our democracy.” It’s OK for Ulrich to call you a threat to the republic, but don’t you dare do the same to him!
Ulrich isn’t so much a hypocrite as he is an authoritarian, he simply thinks that might makes right. His tribe is superior to yours and will silence speech that threatens their quest for power and domination over you. True progressivism is simply about power.
Democrats are one thing. liberals are another. The latter are dangerous.
The NY Times is obviously run by a bunch of communists. Make no mistake, if protesters violate my rights, they automatically forfeit all of theirs, up to and including their right to life.
THE N.Y TIME is the small brother of COMMUNIST PRAVDA fron Russia
Don’t doubt that is where we are headed. And it is they who are causing their own demise.
Reprinting or providing a link to the Ulrich Baer would have been worthwhile. As it is, notwithstanding the manifold failings of the N.Y. TImes, you have left things hanging, not an especially good thing to do.
this is how the COMMUNIST have taken over countries.
it’s also how HITLER AND HIS BROWN SHIRTS TOOK OVER GERMANY, but all the left is doing is setting themselves up TO BE DESTROYED BY WE THE PEOPLE, WERE NOT GOING TO ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN TO OUR REPUBLIC NO MATTER WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO PROTECT OUR NATION.
I happen to be a veteran and retired police officer. I hope that no one thinks that they can just attack me because of beliefs because they will get two to the chest. I will protect myself.
Those who follow his advice will soon discover that there are far more of us opposing them who are armed and have combat training and experience than they can muster. Semper Fi!!
The NY times wonder why they are going to heck sales wise!!! They are anti american and we hate them!!
the N.Y. TIME is the small brother of communist PRAVDA!!
This is amusing. The liberals/progressives/Democrats condemned violence employed by law enforcement for decades and now that their grip on power has slipped they advocate the use of violence hoping to regain it. What’s next? Goose stepping down main street with AK-47’s, in Jack-boots?
These assholes are throwing away their beliefs solely for the goal of winning their moral crusade. Resorting to hypocrisy is obviously “un-obvious” to these leftest BITCHES.
Modern universities so not educate, they indoctrinate
