College: it’s the place you go to broaden your horizons, open your mind and… be sheltered from all things with the potential to be “triggering” (see University of Tennessee Bans ‘Gender Based’ Pronouns. For Real…). Including human beings. Basically be sheltered from all the things. Period. If you talk about controversial things, like mean facts, you don’t get to come on campus. EVER. Especially if you’re Ben Shapiro. You know, because tolerance.
DePaul University recently informed a campus group that conservative pundit Ben Shapiro would not be permitted to speak on campus.
“Given the experiences and security concerns that some other schools have had with Ben Shapiro speaking on their campuses, DePaul cannot agree to allow him to speak on our campus at this time,” the university’s Vice President of Facilities Operations told YAF in an email.
Earlier this year… Shapiro was banned from speaking at California State University Los Angeles in February, with the university’s president citing the need for “free exchange of ideas.”
Yes, you’ve read correctly. Behold, the land of “higher education” in 2016.
Remember how we said don’t go to college? Here’s another reason to tack onto the ever-growing list of why. (WATCH: University of Texas Campus Police to Issue Citation for… Free Speech?!) Universities tend to be cesspools prime for adult crybabies to fester and grow. Why? They blatantly refuse to entertain any idea, fact, or statistic that doesn’t fit their pre-conceived viewpoint of the world. A very narrow, pre-conceived viewpoint of the world, might I add. One filled with white guilt, cis-privilege and oppressive patriarchy. One where people with dissenting viewpoints can only be addressed as hate-speakers, undeserving of exercising their First Amendment right. Say, this preconceived viewpoint of the world almost sounds, dare I say it… closed-minded? Maybe even “information-phobic”?
Is it any wonder, then, that these sweltering turdbombs go on to vote Bernie? Or even Hillary? Yeah that’s indicative of the value of their university education. Thanks a lot, college. We owe you one.
