Decline: 19% Of College Students Think Itís Okay To Shut Down A Speaker With Violence
Hot Air ^ | September 19, 2017 | Allahpundit

Is it decline? We all assume that campuses are getting more fascist towards speech, but I don’t know. It may be that there are more students and locals willing to behave violently to silence a speaker nowadays but whether that means the share who are willing to *condone* violence is higher now than it was, say, in the late 1960s is unclear. It’s counterintuitive but conceivable that colleges are more extreme at the fringes but also more tolerant across the mass of the student population.

That’s why so many of us would not object to more Kent State style outcomes.

It’s not a failure of the education system. It’s planned and orchestrated brainwashing and propaganda. Read “A Nation At Risk.” Read James Clavell’s “The Children’s Story.”

Why do you think parents have been home schooling their children and why the NEA and Liberals are furious about that. It cuts into their mind bending via the government schools.

In order to protect our 1st Amendment rights we have to actually use our 2nd Amendment rights. No punishment should be pursued.

Well, to be fair, we *shouldn’t* allow hateful, racist, bigoted, or anti-immigration speech. There are some things that are just beyond the pale, after all.

...there are more students and locals willing to behave violently to silence a speaker nowadays...

Their cognitive dissonance blinds them to the fact that in their zeal to "protect" First Amendment free speech, they are marching right past the part about peaceable assembly.

The schools have been under attack for a century. The traditional American model was replaced with the German psychology based model in the early 1900s. Schools shifted from education goals to population control goals. After all, the true purpose of psychology is control, not help. In fact the schools are succeeding. Their true goal is a ruined civilization

Exactly. I've always wondered how millions of people could be put to death and rounded up to be put into labor and concentration camps without a fight. Now the left does not hide what they think and really believe should happen to those who oppose them. The leftists are ALL the same. I hate them all. They can never be trusted,their word is sh*t and they take one on America and the Constitution any time they have a chance.

19%? I’m surprised the number is that low.
