Free Speech Week is coming to Berkeley College. You know, since the campus seems to not always understand what free speech means (see Berkeley Faculty Calls ‘Free Speech Week’ a Threat to Mental Health. Demand Boycott and Berkeley Demanding Massive ‘Security Fees’ for Ben Shapiro. But they Love Free Speech). Clearly they could use a lesson in what it means. Watch as this middle aged man loses his crap over seeing a poster advertising the event. Specifically, Milo coming to campus.
Well, not “coming” per say…
Crass and tacky? Sure. But it’s not like saying the word “boobs” on cable news. That would have been taking things too far.
This man practically lost his hair piece over a poster. Because it had words on it. Words.
This is what college SJWism has brought upon us; grown dudes who throw temper tantrums in public because they didn’t get their way. It’s becoming almost impossible to tell which videos are parody these days. The left is their own parody.
Again, the poster was crude. We get it. Obviously, free speech doesn’t always look like refined philosophical discussions between monocled men and tea drinkers.
Freedom of speech is not always classy. Sometimes it’s offensive or something you don’t exactly agree with. These are basic fundamentals that come as no surprise to many LwC readers, I know. Still, very few leftists understand this distinction (see CREDIT WHERE DUE: The ACLU Challenges DC Metro for Violating First Amendment). Hence why man children are getting their panties in a twist over words on paper.
The scariest part of all this? While we laugh and make fun of these tightly wound diaper wads, some of them want to silence others so badly they’re resorting to violence (see DOMESTIC TERRORISTS? AntiFa Violently Attack Journalist). Aaaaand that’s precisely why the fight for free speech is so important.
Speaking of which:
