Free speech is under attack. If you didn’t know that, get your eyes and ears checked. Stat. Because the First Amendment is a regular topic in the modern sphere (see Even Liberal Richard Dreyfuss Defends Free Speech, Skewers UC Berkeley and Bill Maher: Liberals Banning Free Speech is Like Book Burning).
Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager are joining forces to kick down the safe space doors, hoping to restore free speech to its glorious spot in the American Lexicon.
Here’s the rub: it’s easy to blame students. They’re advertising their stupidity by vomiting their thoughtless gray matter droppings all over social media. Pointing and cackling in their gender fluid faces is normal. But Carolla says the blame lies elsewhere:
“The kids are 19, stupid and high. They’ve never not had a house with four TV sets in it. We shouldn’t be listening to them,” he says. “What’s going in with the 50-year-olds running the place? That’s the story that’s missing in the media.”
Blaming the professors who are allowing this, and even teaching it in the first place? There’s a thought.
Lemme channel my inner Ted Cruz for a tad: “I’d like to note” for every story where we bash (deservedly) Millennials for their perpetual whineage, some Millennial commenter cries “BUT OUR PARENTS MADE US THIS WAY!” or some facsimile thereof. In other words stop blaming us young people, and start blaming our parents. Or in college and universities cases, in locos parentis. That’s latin for “acting parent.” I did the college thing, too.
There’s something to the examination of the tree from which all the rotten apples are falling, yes. Especially if these young, mushy brained, gender-fluid imps have been incubated in a nest of shitty ideas since conception. Adam Corolla and Dennis Prager — it appears — are attempting to hit the giant red Reset button in hopes of jumpstarting the mostly unused minds of college students. A noble cause, to be sure. And a challenging one.
But if any two chaps can do it, these guys probably can.
