New College Student Survey:
Yes, Speech Can Be Violence

National Review, by David French

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 10/12/2017 12:02:15 PM

If you follow free-speech controversies for any length of time, you’ll understand two things about public opinion. First, an overwhelming percentage of Americans will declare their support for free speech. Second, a shocking percentage of Americans also support censoring speech they don’t like. (Snip) For example, 81 percent agree with the statement that “words can be a form of violence.” A full 58 percent of students believe that colleges should “forbid” speakers who have a “history of engaging in hate speech.” And what is hate speech? The definition the students liked was staggeringly broad. Two-thirds agreed that hate speech is

Maybe we should just close all colleges for one or two years and send these "students" to pick up trash along our highways for that period. This might serve as a dose of reality.

(for literalists out there, that´s just my tongue-in-cheek suggestion)

I suggest they have to write, 1000 times at the beginning of each semester, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me." See if that helps some of them.

Half of college students were idiots when I went to college in the 70s. The current crop makes them look like geniuses.

If you think speech is violence, and words can hurt,

Go get your dictionary, while I take out my bat.

Apparently, we need to revise the old rhyme, "sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me".

One of life´s lessons that few seem to learn is this. "One CHOOSES to be hurt, insulted or become angry over words". Anyone that is "triggered" by speach has a problem that requires intervention, not a safe space.

The Supreme Court ruled that money is speech, therefore, if speech is violence, then money can be denied by the taxpayer for student loans. Since violent speech is only attached to conservative thought by liberals declaring speech as violence, then leftist snowflakes should be denied access to college....

#5, I was thinking the same thing. My mother said that one to me many times when I was growing up. I´d say "But he called me ......"
and then get the sticks and stones deal.

Today, as you read this, my website Right Wing News is shutting down operations. It has been around since 2001, but became massive a few years ago because of Facebook. Remember the mainstream media liberals going out of their minds because the Russians reached almost 150 million people with their $100,000 Facebook ad buy? In July of 2015, in just a week, the Right Wing News Facebook page reached 133 million people. Because conservatives were sharing content they were interested in, little ol’ Right Wing News (well, I guess nearly 3.6 million Facebook likes isn’t so little) was driving the same

Lost in the tumbling headlines of a busy week was a ruling that reminds us the corruption of federal justice is not confined merely to a few politicized bureaucrats monkeying around in the Hillary and Trump investigations. On Monday, US District Court Judge Gloria Navarro dismissed with prejudice (against the Justice Department) all charges against Cliven Bundy and his sons. If you´ve forgotten the Bundys´ stand-off with the Feds in Nevada, here´s how National Review´s David French summarizes it: On one side was a collection of dangerous, out-of-control armed men who were deliberately provocative, prone to saying unhinged things in a

A recent trend in many states is to outlaw "conversion therapy," where people who are unhappy with homosexual inclinations go through therapy to dispense with those inclinations. Even though the process is voluntary, liberal states cannot tolerate the idea of someone with same-sex attractions wanting help to get rid of them. In the U.S., state governments are beginning to outlaw conversion therapy in growing numbers. California became the first to do so in 2012. Eight other states have banned it in some form since. In 2017 alone, Nevada, New Mexico, and Connecticut have signed their own bans into law. Now

After issuing an executive order late Wednesday closing his commission to investigate voter fraud, President Donald Trump now stresses the need for more voter identification and has tasked the Department of Homeland Security with ensuring the integrity of elections. The White House so far is not saying that the president will call for a national voter ID system. But his tweets Thursday seemed to suggest so: [Tweet] Donald J.

Sites like Vox, the Daily Beast, and the Weekly Standard have long praised the dossiers of Robert Mueller’s legal investigative team. The essays prove mostly the same. They often employ the same superlative nomenclature: “all-stars,” “dream-team,” “army,” and “professionals.” The hagiographies list the legal CVs of various lawyers and investigators now employed (usually on loan either from the FBI, Obama or Trump Justice Departments, or prestigious East Coast firms). The reviews often hint that such “firepower” may mean a one-sided legal bloodbath ahead. The mere names spell “very, very bad news” for the White House. Yet the Mueller legal team’s dossiers also

For Mansour Osanlou, the former head of the bus driver’s union in Tehran, a “new revolution” has begun in Iran. The protests, which began on Thursday in Iran’s most religious cities and spread throughout the country within twenty four hours, now bring together workers and intellectuals, the unemployed, and the elites – a combination not seen since the 1979 revolution that toppled the Shah. On Saturday, security forces in Tehran used rubber bullets and truck-mounted water canon in an unsuccessful attempt to disperse protesters at Tehran University who were seeking to march on the Supreme Leader’s compound, Osanloo told me in a

Here’s to a 2018 where markets are rising, terror is falling, spaceships are flying, Korea is quiet and sanity returns. Hey, it could happen! In my last column, I speculated about things that might go wrong in 2018, ranging from a hacker-inspired collapse of the power grid to a bitcoin depression. I hope I’m wrong about all of it. But in keeping with the optimistic spirit of the New Year, here are some things that might go right in 2018. Let’s hope that I’m not wrong about these.

A few more deep anti-Semitic thoughts from the new Islamist face of the left. On December 9th, taking to her Facebook account, Linda Sarsour justified Palestinian terrorism: In context of what’s happening in Palestine in response to the announcement about Jerusalem and in general living under the longest and most brutal military occupation – we have to get a few things straight. Nobody gets to tell an occupied people how to respond to their own oppression and the continued stripping of their humanity, agency and land whether they are Palestinians or not. Nobody. Oppressed people determine how, when and where to resist. They

My first real memory of Christmas was when I was 5 years old. I had gotten a cheap little plastic Nativity scene with a tiny Baby Jesus which truly mesmerized me. Just a few days later I would be clutching that Nativity scene to my chest in terror as I hid in a closet in our bedroom as the police came to forcibly evict my family onto the street yet again. By the time I had reached the age of 17, myself, my older brother and younger sister had been evicted from 34 “homes,” many of them lacking heat, electricity, water or

Can great individuals affect the affairs of man? If they can, then Winston Churchill is certainly one of the greatest among them. (Snip) Instead of merely showing events unfold at the ground level, “Darkest Hour” focuses on Churchill, the man who led Great Britain to eventual victory in World War II. It’s about how this man of relentless resolve, almost a caricature of British stubbornness, desperately kept his country in a fight he knew it must win at any cost. This in the face of the collapse of his country’s strongest allies, utter defeat on the battlefields, and defeatism among the ruling class

So there will be more empty seats round the Christmas table this year, after an "Australian citizen" mowed down pedestrians at the junction of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street in Melbourne. The casualties include "a pre-schooler with serious head injuries". The "Australian citizen" (I presume this designation is being used to emphasize that he´s entirely eligible to serve in Mr Turnbull´s cabinet) did it deliberately, but relax, lighten up, there´s no need to worry because, according to Victoria´s police commissioner, all this terrifying terror is "not terror-related".

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a historic Republican tax reform bill, after a Democrat tantrum in the U.S. Senate delayed the bill. President Donald Trump is expected to sign it at any moment. Democrats have pushed a constant narrative that the GOP tax reform would hurt the poor and middle class while benefitting the wealthy, corporations, and Republican donors. This narrative is false. Here are five things the tax reform bill actually does, and why Democrat posturing has actually harmed government revenues, poor college students at a particular college, and homeschool families. 1.

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
