A week ago today, the extremist ugly head of campus "liberalism" snapped and snarled at California State University Los Angeles.
The occasion was the appearence of Ben Shapiro to give a speech. Shapiro writes:
Hundreds of students gathered to chant slogans, block entrances and exits to the student union auditorium, rough up those who wished to enter, pull the fire alarm, and trap other students inside that auditorium under threat of violence. Police officers stood aside and allowed that mob to violate basic safety protocols, reportedly at the behest of the school administration.
"This is America in 2016, on a state-funded university campus," Shapiro observes.
How has the U.S. arrived at this unsafe place?
"We have spent two generations turning college campuses from places to learn job skills to places to indoctrinate leftism and inculcate an intolerant view of the world that insists on silencing opposition," Shapiro explains.
"We have made campuses a fascist 'safe space' on behalf of the left. Anyone who disagrees must be shut down, or threatened or hurt."
This hatred against freedom is not limited to university extremists.
"We've entered an era of politics in which baseless feelings count more than facts, in which political correctness means firing those with different viewpoints, in which government actors insist that they can police negative thoughts," Shapiro writes.
"We're on the edge of freedom's end, and many Americans don't even see it," Shapiro concludes.
"They would have had they been at CSULA that day. And they will soon enough if they don't stand up for their rights today."
