Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro barred from public university, speaks anyway - February 26, 2016, 09:24 AM

This is glorious but also deeply troubling. Ben Shapiro was approved to speak under the auspices of the Young Americans Foundation at California State University in Los Angeles (CSULA) on Thursday, February 25. Some faculty and students found out about the scheduled event and put pressure on the administration to bar Shapiro from coming to their campus, even resorting to threats of physical violence to Shapiro and the organizers of the event. In a flash of astonishing irony, the administration caved, cancelled the event, and claimed that Shapiro would be invited at a future date on which other speakers would also be given a chance to speak so as to better represent the diversity present on the public campus.

Shapiro was not deterred; he went to speak anyway. What ensued should be alarming to anyone who still thinks America stands for freedom. Check it out here and on youtube:

Welcome to the Idiocracy. Embrace the moronic hysteria!

Depressing that colleges admins would move to silence a particular voice.

I think it's alarming that a group of students calling for diversity formed a three-deep militia line and blocked entrance to a peaceful demonstration. I think it's alarming that said students, at the direction of their university faculty, used threats of violence to shut down the demonstration and actual violence to disrupt the demonstration when it proceeded without their permission.

This is fascism, folks.

When you can't defend your ideas via reason, resort to shouting people down and threats.

How freaking stupid are these people that they can't see the corollary to totalitarianism.

What I wish is the same thing that would have happened in DC at the McDonalds. Roll up about 20 deep with some friends and see how the loud screams get quiet.

Shapiro explained it really well in a recent interview with Dave Rubin. These precious snowflakes have no real threats so they fight those things that make them feel threatened. This has given rise to the "micro aggression" phenomenon, which grants permission to use macro aggression (violence) in response to micro aggression (perceived hostility or criticism). As Shapiro put it, this is really nefarious stuff.

Here is the full interview. It's worth watching, as Shapiro remained in control during the entire thing. Rubin could not refute any of Shapiro's positions. True conservatism, properly articulated, cannot be refuted. It just can't be refuted.

Commit the crime, charged, arrested, trialed, and sentenced when the evidence is clear and unequivocal. This is the way the system of justice is "supposed" to work. Done and done.

But conversely when it happens in the inverse, even with clear and compelling evidence, once again, the system short circuits.

Just like this recent college case ...

White College Students Who Called Black Student 3/5th a Man, Put Lock Around His Neck, and Displayed a Confederate & Nazi Symbols in Their Dorm Suite Avoid Hate Crime Convictions.


... and this is exactly what fuels movements like BLM and the grousing at Conservatives who often proclaim that there is nothing wrong or biased with the system, the prime target in the construction, application and enforcement of the laws, or its adjudication.

Until people stop looking at all this in a matter of black white green and yellow racism itself will never die.

Human psychology is based on quickly programming responses to environmental factors allowing an increase in response time for our natural fight our flight mechanisms. If we continue to further push differences among the population and people as being a "class" or "group" we are just further creating these unconscious pathways to keep different and progress racism sexism class-ism etc....

We need to evolve to be humans as a single entity to stop all this nonsense.

I don't get why people do not get this.....

I prefer Morgan Freeman's approach to be honest and I think Hate Crimes are bullshit.

Assault is assault. Murder is murder.
