The Left Explains Why It Opposes Free Speech

Filed under: Free Speech

If I read this manifesto from the students of Pomonoa College and the Claremont Colleges right, the reason the Radical Democrat Left opposes Free Speech is because Free Speech would lead people to the discovery of Objective Truth. Objective Truth is historically associated with white males, and is therefore bad.

“The idea that there is a single truth—‘the Truth’—is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment . . . This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples.”

So rather than seek the Truth (which is what the White Supremacist Patriarchy does), we should instead constantly shout the approved politically correct slogans and sociological buzzwords at each other. That’s my takeaway from the  manifesto, anyway.

Taken to its logical conclusion, we ought to reject gravity, because our understanding of gravity is an “objective truth” of the White Supremacist Patriarchy. Members of “Marginalized communities” should be able to throw themselves from the roofs of academic building and fly. Because once you are “woke,” you will realize that gravity is a White Man’s Construct, and anyone who accepts gravity is a tool of the White Supremacist Patriarchy.

Many of the students who wrote the manifesto will go on to careers as college administrators and Government bureaucrats with immense power over the lives of the citizenry. Ponder that.

  1. If we are dumb enough to tolerate them, then perhaps we deserve them pretending to be our betters and adjudicating our lives. As Susan Powter (the 90’s diet guru) used to shout…”Stop the insanity”!

  2. For whatever ungodly reason, I’ve been revisiting Orwell’s “1984”.

  3. Your interpretation is entirely accurate and is exactly what is being taught in places of higher education, high schools, and even some elementary schools today. Often, it is taught in such a mild and watered down manner in the elementary schools, educators are not even aware that it’s happening…i.e. No more suspensions or expulsions, no IQ tests for minority students, nobody wins or loses or has special skills…

  4. I think and I hope one day there will be a college bubble requiring colleges and universities to get rid of worthless degrees or even colleges closing down. Hopefully these idiots will never find employment.

    Unfortunately they become teachers and civil servants…and the cycle repeats with even smaller minds.

  7. “If people are free to chose they will chose wrong”

    from the movie/book “the giver”

  8. I have a slightly different take on it.

    They believe that there is no objective or absolute truth. That all things are relative, and that therefore any attempt to teach someone else an absolute truth is evil and obviously wrong.

    In other words, “You can’t tell someone else what’s right and wrong!”

    I’ll give you ten second to see the contradictory and hypocritical nature of that statement.

  9. @6, from statistics I’ve seen, France has the highest percentage Muslim population in western Europe. Apparently at least some of the gay men in France can see the writing on the wall.

  10. The author of the article claims to have been an early opponent of the Iraq War. +1 for her.

  11. isn’t islam objective truth? is islam part of the white supremacy? how low does your iq have to be to believe this drivel? does anybody think that the idea that everybody should go to college is the reason that there are people in so-called institutions of higher education that believe ideas like this.
    college is suppose to be higher education but if everybody goes to college becomes elementary school.

  12. @6 Steve – so, on the eve of an election with Muslims as the major issue, ISIS launches a terror attack in Paris.

    So the French have a choice in this election: grab the life jacket or the boat anchor.

    It should never have gotten this far… I wish I had enough confidence in western peoples to think we might wise up before it’s too late (and it may be too late – see Sweden).

  13. The idea that there is a single truth—‘the Truth’—is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment…

    So, the Left is officially anti-Enlightenment. Got it.

  15. I was in my second year of college (1962) when I first heard of Political Correct speech. The professor was discussing this “new phenomenon” and warned about it and its effect on Free Speech in America.

    No one pain much attention until just ten years ago when the “ugly beast” began to spew fire. Nothing was done and so now we have the results biting us (conservatives) in the a$$.

  16. @ ILC: Of course they are anti-Enlightenment. The Enlightenment was all about rationalism, the triumph of reason, and the right of the individual to mock and question the political powers-that-be of his time.

    The regressive base all of their decision making on how things make them feel, bend language and logic beyond all recognition, and despite claiming to oppose the concept of universal Truth, sure do get angry when somebody questions their assertions.

  17. @15 By the time I made it to university, 1970, the rot had already crept up the wall. My contemporaries of that time are the fking peeps now. I only escaped bc I lived in an obscure town in Wales where life was real.

  18. ““The idea that there is a single truth—‘the Truth’—is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment ”

    Um, I think a Jewish guy named Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the light” long before the Enlightenment.

    Fact is, nearly every society coalesces around the idea that they possess the only truth.

    Another fact is, the Enlightenment may have been the first time people opened their minds to the possibility of multiple truths.
