    WSJ - Majority Of U.S. College Students Now Support "Regulating" Free Speech

    Majority Of U.S. College Students Now Support "Regulating" Free Speech

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 10/25/2015 15:30 -0400

    While the public's attention has been largely focused on the Obama administration's crusade against the Second Amendment, a more troubling development is taking place in the fight against free speech, and the First Amendment, a war waged far from D.C., on the campuses of America's liberal colleges.
    We read the following excerpt from the upcoming issue of the New Criterian, in which we find that 51% - or a majority - of college students favor "speech codes" (i.e., regulated "free speech"), with only 36% against, first with amusement (as we thought it has to be a joke) and then great concern (once we realized it is all too real) because it reveals that America's best and brightest young minds have decided on their own that they don't really need all those liberties enshrined by America's founding fathers, especially if they "infringe" upon the current mania of "politically correct" everything.
    From the WSJ:

    A recent survey reported college students, by a margin of 51% to 36%, favor speech codes.

    Williams College (Tuition and fees: $63,290) has undertaken an “Uncomfortable Learning” Speaker Series in order to provide intellectual diversity on a campus where (like most campuses) left-leaning sentiment prevails. What a good idea! How is it working out? The conservative writer Suzanne Venker was invited to speak in this series. But when word got out that an alternative point of view might be coming to Williams, angry students demanded her invitation be rescinded. It was.

    Explaining their decision, her hosts noted that the prospect of her visit was “stirring a lot of angry reactions among students on campus.” So Suzanne Venker joins a long and distinguished list of people—including Ayaan Hirsi Ali, George Will, and Charles Murray—first invited then disinvited to speak on campus. It’s been clear for some time that such interdictions are not bizarre exceptions. On the contrary, they are perfect reflections of an ingrained hostility to free speech—and, beyond that, to free thought—in academia.

    To put some numbers behind that perception, The William F. Buckley Jr. Program at Yale recently commissioned a survey from McLaughlin & Associates about attitudes towards free speech on campus. Some 800 students at a variety of colleges across the country were surveyed. The results, though not surprising, are nevertheless alarming. By a margin of 51 percent to 36 percent, students favor their school having speech codes to regulate speech for students and faculty. Sixty-three percent favor requiring professors to employ “trigger warnings” to alert students to material that might be discomfiting. One-third of the students polled could not identify the First Amendment as the part of the Constitution that dealt with free speech. Thirty-five percent said that the First Amendment does not protect “hate speech,” while 30 percent of self-identified liberal students say the First Amendment is outdated. With the assault on free speech and the First Amendment proceeding apace in institutions once dedicated to robust intellectual debate, it is no wonder that there are more and more calls to criminalize speech that dissents from the party line on any number of issues, from climate change to race relations, to feminism and sex.
    And when brainwashing wins over the minds of the young generation, whether due to relentless propaganda, due to constant Apple Store "99 cent" diversions, due to a generational case of Stockholm Syndrome, or simply because said "brightest" minds were never that bright to begin with (the WEF ranked the U.S. at 52nd among 139 nations in the quality of its university math and science instruction) brainwashing wins, period.
    Because if a majority of young U.S. intelligentsia freely hands over its one, most valuable civil liberty, then the nation has far greater concerns for its future than just how overvalued the so-called "market" is.

    Communist Manifesto 101
    "Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed." —Communist dictator, Joseph Stalin (1934)

    This is how sick-minded these people are...
    "Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our founding fathers, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being... It's up to you, teachers, to make all of these sick children well by creating the international children of the future."
    SOURCE: Kathy Collins, "Children Are Not Chattel," Free Inquiry, a publication of CODESH (Council, for Democratic and Secular Humanism, Fall 1987, pg. 11).

    Evolution teaches that only the strong survive. Hitler said, “The Jews formed a sub-human counter race, predestined by their biological heritage to evil, just as the Nordic race was destined for nobility.” Is that not the same as Charles Darwin's theory of NATURAL SELECTION, from his 1859 groundbreaking book, The Origin of Species? Yes, it certainly is! Whether it be Nazism or Communism, BOTH ideologies are rooted in the atheistic viewpoints of Evolution.
    Children are not taught that Evolution was the underlying philosophy of Hitler's War Machine, and still is the fuel that fires the Abortion industry. Evolution degrades humanity to slime. This is why American have murdered over 50,000,000 humans without conscience.

    "Anyone can see the powerful foes that are attacking our children today. It is no problem whatsoever to see the powerful foes: Humanism, Communism, rationalism, new morality, narcotics, our educational system, lewdness, dirty books and plays, etc. All these are our enemies. Satan is after your child!"(Read the complete sermon, by Pastor Jack Hyles, Th.D.)

    "If you want to drive the devil out of the world, hit him with a cradle instead of a crutch."
    Evangelist Billy Sunday

    ...does not the acceptance of this sick and evil Darwinian-evolutionist view that man is nothing but an animal to be trained, without free will, spell the end of Christianity?...
    The best education is SELF EDUCATION.
    Do your own homework and THINK FOR YOURSELF!

    Margaret Louise Sanger
    1879 - 1966

    U.S. president Obama has now made it possible for Planned Parenthood to set up clinic in all public schools.

    “There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”
    —Charles de Montesquieu

    "The purpose of education is to change the thoughts, feelings and actions of students." —Benjamin Bloom (1913-1999)

    The Devil is behind the public school system...
    "The Masons/Communists/Humanists/Illuminists all want the government to train the children of the nation in government run schools.
    Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Illuminati, wrote:
    'We must win the common people in every corner. This will be obtained chiefly by means of the schools.' (Proofs Of A Conspiracy, pg. 111)
    'We must acquire the direction of education -- of church -- management -- of the professorial chair, and of the pulpit.' (Proofs Of A Conspiracy, pg. 109)
    And professor John Robison wrote in his book about the Illuminati entitled PROOFS OF A CONSPIRACY that:
    'They [the Illuminati] contrived to place their Members as tutors to the youth of distinction.' (Proofs Of A Conspiracy, pg. 75)"
    SOURCE: The New World Order, pg. 263, by Ralph A. Epperson; 1990; ISBN: 0-9614135-1-4; publisher: PUBLIUS PRESS, Tucson, Arizona.
    The public school system is evil. Every woe in American society today can be traced to the Godless teachings of Evolution. The very essence of Evolution is that human life is not worth saving. Abortion is made easy when you raise up children to believe that only the strong should survive. Whether it be eugenics or cold-blooded tyranny, the philosophy of Evolution turns an otherwise caring person into a monster. Hitler was a big fan of Charles Darwin's evolutionistic philosophies. To no surprise, Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood) was a racist herself and influenced Hitler's philosophy as well.
    Communism is of the Devil. Communism is not an ideology; but rather, a secret weapon of THE ILLUMINATI intended to enslaved the human race. It was Karl Marx himself, unquestionably the father of modern Communism, who said:
    "My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism." —Karl Marx
    It was Whittaker Chambers, a former Communist and Soviet spy, who said:
    "The Communist vision is the vision of man without God. It is the vision of man's mind displacing God as the creative intelligence of the world."
    Dethrone God? Man without God? Can a person dethrone God? Absolutely not! The very essence of Communist philosophy is the absence of God. That's why public school teach the lie of Evolution!
    The public school system was designed to brainwash children to bring to fruition a New World Order. Those people today who scoff at the notion of a New World Order are ignorant of the times. Also see: Quotes on the NWO.
    The Federal Government has NO BUSINESS educating our children. The government was originally intended to PROTECT our property, person and freedom (now they're confiscating our property, harming our person and robbing our freedoms).
    Tragically, even the government doesn't know what education is...
    "In 1979, a newsletter called EDUCATION USA reported that at least one judge stated that no one knew what education was. That rather revealing conclusion was offered by a judge in a court case involving a mother who sued the San Francisco Unified School District in 1976 because her son, who was a high school graduate, could not read or write. She sought damages for remedial education and the wages her son would be unable to earn because of his lack of educational skills. The judge disagreed, according to the newsletter, saying:
    'Schools have no legal duty to educate. If there is no legal duty to educate, there can be no malpractice where education fails.' (Education USA, September 24th, 1979, pg 29)
    The judge in the district court that heard the case reported that 'schools have no legal duty to educate,' because the purpose of education was not known. Not even the educators know what they are to do with the children forcibly brought to their schools.
    The judge in the appeals court explained:
    'The science of pedagogy [defined as the art or science of teaching] itself is fraught with different and conflicting theories...'
    As a result, he said, there is no way to assess the school's negligence when they do not educate any child. So the courts do not know what the purpose of education is."

    Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries

    Human Events | Tuesday May 31, 2005 3:00 AM

    • Share on Facebook

    HUMAN EVENTS asked a panel of 15 conservative scholars and public policy leaders to help us compile a list of the Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Each panelist nominated a number of titles and then voted on a ballot including all books nominated. A title received a score of 10 points for being listed No. 1 by one of our panelists, 9 points for being listed No. 2, etc. Appropriately, The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, earned the highest aggregate score and the No. 1 listing.
    #1. The Communist Manifesto(NUMBER ONE)

    Authors: Karl Marx and Freidrich Engels
    Publication date: 1848
    Score: 74
    Summary: Marx and Engels, born in Germany in 1818 and 1820, respectively, were the intellectual godfathers of communism. Engels was the original limousine leftist: A wealthy textile heir, he financed Marx for much of his life. In 1848, the two co-authored The Communist Manifesto as a platform for a group they belonged to called the Communist League. The Manifesto envisions history as a class struggle between oppressed workers and oppressive owners, calling for a workers’ revolution so property, family and nation-states can be abolished and a proletarian Utopia established. The Evil Empire of the Soviet Union put the Manifesto into practice.

    Every setting has its own set of approved words and thought. Here at ALIPAC you can either sing the praises of the TEA Party or keep silent about your disapproval. Those are your only choices as I understand.

    Think about gays getting married. Do you think that the Bible Belt has somehow changed their view because the government says the opposite of what they believe?

    Everyone knows that our system of education leans to the far left. Nothing surprising there. The "surprise" is that someone who wants free speech tends to restrict the very same thing that they claim others take away.

    Right wing or left wing, they are really two parts of the same bird.

    Well said. "Parts of Same Bird" is exactly Right. I have noticed, not only on this site, that PEOPLE tend to Copy/Paste "Same Bird" Talking Points so they don't actually have to use Logic and Reason to avoid ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT, even if that means coming up with something as simple as an IDEA. Oh well, they do have the Right to do so.

    "To do the same thing and expect a different result"(Denial)

    note: someone on here will see this post as an insult or a persona attack.

    Mr. Walker,

    Censorship is the banner of a Thought Dictator and buckler to the unlearned. Everyone has an instinct to protect their own opinions but many refuse to look deep down and express why they have the views that they do. That is why censorship is dangerous because the wise and the unwise use it as a escape.

    Some censorship is warrented. Nudity, language, and a few other things. If for nothing but to protect the children to the full harshness of society.
