When leftists were on the outside looking in, they were aggressive advocates of free speech on college campuses. But now that they are the establishment and are in the process of consolidating absolute control, they no longer have a use for it. This indicates how much respect for free speech can be found among liberal Ivy League students nowadays:
Students at Yale on Saturday protested—and in one case disrupted—an event held by the William F. Buckley, Jr. Program that was designed to highlight the importance of freedom of speech.
Buckley was an alumnus of Yale.
The targets of the protest and disruption were participating in the Buckley Program’s “Fifth Annual Conference on the Future of Free Speech: Threats in Higher Education and Beyond.”
If it wasn’t already clear how serious these threats are, it should be now.
“A large group of students eventually gathered outside of the building on High Street,” the Yale Daily News reported. “According to Buckley fellows present during the conference, several attendees were spat on as they left. One Buckley fellow said he was spat on and called a racist. Another, who is a minority himself, said he has been labeled a ‘traitor’ by several fellow minority students. Both asked to remain anonymous because they were afraid of attracting backlash.”
Those who deviate from official dogma regarding the advisability of free expression have to remain anonymous for their own safety in the sort of country this is becoming.
Today’s Ivy League students are tomorrow’s ruling class. If you think the situation is bad now, just wait a few years.
