Skip to comments.The slow death of free speech

How the Left, here and abroad, is trying to shut down debate from Islam and Israel to global warming and gay marriage ...
At Brandeis University, we are learning the hierarchy of the new multiculti caste system. .... In theory, Ayaan Hirsi Ali is everything the identity-group fetishists dig: female, atheist, black, immigrant. If conservative white males were to silence a secular womens rights campaigner from Somalia, it would be proof of the Republican partys war on women, or the encroaching Christian fundamentalist theocracy ... But when the snivelling white male who purports to be president of Brandeis (one Frederick Lawrence) does it out of deference to Islam, Miss Hirsi Alis blackness washes off her like a bad dye job on a telly news anchor. ... Islam trumps all: race, gender, secularism, everything. ... in the interests of multiculti sensitivity.

Money talks freely.
It’s picking up speed — rapidly.
It’s important to note the demonic energy in and behind Islam. It takes little imagination to see Satan’s marks all over it, but those who reject Christ Jesus are spiritually blinded. As delusion takes hold on more and more, the whole idea of “fairness” will be shown for the unbiblical sham it is. Doesn’t matter if it’s “American”; it’s not Christian!
What’s Christian? Jesus on a cross! The height of unfairness, and yet...
“God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”
Those who belong to Christ have NOTHING to fear, period! Islamists may chop our heads off, but God will NOT destroy our bodies and souls in Hell!
Also, God will save some Muslims! Perhaps, like the Rwandan victims of the machete massacres, there will be forgiveness sought and granted by once-murderous Muslims and their victims’ families. No condemnation in Christ Jesus. Who can produce this but the Holy Spirit?
God is rich in mercy and eager to forgive!
I knew a guy that worked for the phone company (NET) in the 1970s. He said he was sent to Brandeis to remove all the payphones, the blue box fraud was costing NET too much.
He removed a couple, then the students started to pay attention, questioned him ("work order...), and the students became very arrogant, and very menacingly irate.
Long story short, he called his supervisor...Brandeis came to a financial settlement with NET to leave the payphones...
I was just going to say, there is nothing slow about it.
Any time someone suggests shutting down any type of speech, the proper reaction is to make exactly that type of speech repeatedly and loudly.
Otherwise, a right unexercised is a right lost.
Is this in a free speech zone?
What really bothered me is the whole idea that at a liberal arts college we need to be hearing a diversity of opinion.
No doubt said in all sincerity without a hint of irony. But that is the logical conclusion of the principle that progressive thought and opinion is advancing inexorably towards a definable end of perfect peace, love and tolerance for all. How could there be a diversity of opinion once right has been found and defined for all time?
it appears that the multiculturalists
[Steyn used multiculti] are trying to make it so.
the most i’ve ever heard the ‘n’ word has been out of the mouth of black yutes. they appear to be insensitive to it’s use by their own, but not by anyone else.... the old adage; ‘it’s good for me but not for thee’.
It’s already dead.
Free Speech has Never been Free. There is always a payment due. I thought/presumed, that such- was a known fact, in Our Republic.
they're spooky govt syncophants.....
at least the hippies spoke up...
Blue boxen were the ultimate.
But let's not leave out the black ones. They were more widespread, being basically trivial to construct.
Rare example of a prosecution (Williams College). The link is even basically accurate in describing how the device worked.
