How Conservative “Hate Speech” Makes Our Campus Safer (UPDATED)

"Here is the exact wording of the voice mail I got from the parent who declined to leave his name: “My son was planning on attending UNC­ Wilmington in the fall of 2017. However, based on a column you wrote on the Internet, we are now withdrawing his acceptance per his request. Free speech is protected. But your hate speech isn’t.' ” 

Mike Adams
Author’s Note: This column contains some bad language from a critic – although I don’t mind. The fact that I am receiving flak shows that I am flying over the target.

How Conservative “Hate Speech” Makes Our Campus Safer

. . . "In all seriousness, the time has come for you to consider your role in encouraging these kinds of unhinged lunatics who decry “hate speech” while wishing death upon their political adversaries. It is clear that you have been stung by criticism from the political left and that now you seek to appease them whenever the opportunity arises. That is why you jumped on the anti­HB2 bandwagon. That is also why you decided to attack me in public back in January. 

"You need to reconsider your tactics. Experience shows that you can never appease leftists. If you give them a license to define “hate” then they will surely exempt themselves from the definition. It is far better to ignore them than to empower them. Let the sons of lunatics go to Berkeley with other fragile “warriors” who are compelled to riot every time they hear a divergent opinion. We don’t need them here in North Carolina. 

"In other words, your administration needs to stop marginalizing conservative professors. You need to clone them instead. We make excellent lunatic repellent for those who call ideas hateful because they lack the intelligence to rebut them."

UPDATE: Berkeley Silences Free Speech With a Kick in the Teeth  . . . "YAF is not in the business of hosting conservative gatherings that resemble professional wrestling shows. They are meant to foster thoughtful and enlightened debate and conversation.
"So why – you may ask – did the conservatives not proceed with Ms. Coulter’s speech?
"It turns out the university’s police department has a stand down policy – meaning they do not get involved unless there is an imminent loss of life, according to a lawsuit filed by YAF.
"In other words – liberals get a free pass to beat the living daylights out of conservative kids so long as the victims still have a pulse.
" 'All the while Berkeley administrators look the other way – while speech liberals disagree with is silenced.
“ 'Berkeley should be ashamed for creating this hostile atmosphere,” YAF president Ron Robinson told the Washington Examiner. “Berkeley made it impossible to hold a lecture due to the lack of assurances for protections from foreseeable violence from unrestrained leftist agitators.”
"It would’ve been like throwing red meat to a pack of liberal jackals.
“ 'I had the misfortune of being in a leftist riot as a student, and I wouldn’t want to put my children or anyone else’s children into that situation without assurances that law enforcement would protect them,” Robinson said." . . .

If these campus leftists and those who side with them are possessed of a conscience, they have to be asking themselves, "what have I become?". These are truly the dark ages for American society; Donald Trump has not caused it all, he only revealed it.  TD
