We all know that universities tend to be extremely progressive. That’s the case in both the United States and Europe. Whenever a student dares to express conservative views, he’s quickly pushed aside, marginalized and sometimes even punished for his audacity to speak his mind. After all, freedom of speech doesn’t mean that everybody has that right. Of course not!
You may laugh, but British university students now actually demand the “right to be comfortable.” I kid you not.
It doesn’t get much insaner than that.
The great British YouTube’er Pat Condell shares that view and just published a fantastic video in which he utterly destroys progressive universities and students. Teaser:
Inevitably, of course, this right to be comfortable is very selective, and only extends to those who hold the correct opinion. Anyone else can expect to be made very uncomfortable indeed by being silenced – either banned outright, or shouted down by militant “progressive” puritan bigots who think in slogans, and who think it’s more virtuous to be “progressive” than to be factually accurate or morally just, or to have anything remotely resembling an open mind.
Ouch. And guess what? There’s much more where that came from. Watch it:
