Self-defence: What every campus free speech warrior needs to know (GUEST Lauren Southern)

Faith GoldyRebel Host

Free speech is going extinct at the very institution that should be its sanctuary: the university. And this extermination is happening really, really fast.

Everyday, it seems, there are new headlines emerging from the West’s college campuses: Disinvited speakers, shamed professors, erroneous demands, and forced apologies — all because a segment of the university community esteems themselves offended

Tonight, I set aside lofty arguments about cultural Marxism and the new face of tyranny, to tell you my own story:

My own encounter with Lady Liberty at university, when she was still free to roam its halls.

Then The Rebel’s own Lauren Southern joins me to talk self defence after being assaulted at a free speech rally in Toronto.

PLUS: We've got your week's top headlines and Quote of Honour!

Yep, I am the NRA! Just wishful thinking. Now that’s real freedom. The right to protect oneself. Someone was thinking, there.

There is more to learn outside the lecture halls at universities.

If the west, specifically Obama and Hillary keep poking the bear, it;‘s going to get mad. Russia does not want war, it’s economy is not strong enough, and Putin has said many times its not looking for war.

Great opening comments. Maybe there is hope for some of these young Marxists yet.

Good Lauren’s ok, Wasp spray works better than bear spray, and it’s not restricted. Keep a can everywhere in the house. My university friend has a brutal liberal prof asked him for a euphemism, so he said it’s like “instead of leave me alone I could say fuck off”.

Outstanding… Simply outstanding..!!!

- “Progressive” policies don’t hold up to scrutiny which is why the scream like children & try to silence anything that might call those failed policies into question. This has become obvious to anyone who wants to observe it.

- If it’s not legal to defend yourself then the government needs to be held criminally responsible if you get hurt or killed.

As leftist governments become more established, political correctness (conformity in thought, word and deed) will be required by everyone. Those who do not conform will be punished and sent to re-education camps. This was and is a common practice in communist countries were everyone must adhere to the party-line. So called human rights commissions are punishing people today for not conforming in our own country.

Note how federal Liberals are required to conform on abortion and other issues or be banished from the Liberal Caucus. Inch by inch freedom is eroded. Can banishment to a gulag be that far off?

Trump is not far wrong when he says this election might be the last chance to save democracy as we have known it.

Who let that thing off it’s leash?…..

Well I have to say, the dog collar is totally appropriate.

That is why we are not hiring anyone under the age of 45 to operate some of our equipment – not time for snowflakes that want to get violent.

Trash from university can go hungry and our security would never step in to help them now.

I’d love to watch the episode but there is no slider bar, pause button or full screen button so I’m going to need to back out and try to find an episode with the above. Not being able to pause for a any reason is really annoying.

Drew Wakariuk – “it is a left cross for southpaws like me.”

Yeah, but a hard “Right” leaves a deeper impression on soft heads ;-)

May as well call them Little Kremlins now.

Brain Hartley Muay Thai is pretty vicious if you know how to use it right. But a good general self defense style such as Krav Maga would be invaluable for people to learn as well. Some styles are at the mercy of other styles, a boxing stance is not good against someone proficient at Muay Thai.

Good show FAITH , and LAUREN I’m glad to here you are charging that creepy queer scary clown , keep us informed on that process

GLENN , a lot of lady justices are wearing "knee cabs "—— ( coverings down to there knees ) and are cheating by peeking through the eye holes and discriminating

Krav Maga is used by the Israeli Defense Force to teach self-defense to recruits with little or no background in martial arts. A civilian version of this training is widely available in Canada and basic concepts can be quickly learned. Krav Maga is very effective in defending against random and sudden violence on the street. Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, etc, are great competitive sports, but there are no rules or referees in a street fight. Just learning the basics of Krav Maga can make the difference between walking away, or being carried away.

At Mount Saint Vincent University …in 1984 no less…I was the only male attending the womyn’s day rally at the seaton auditorium….it was like being a Jewish stage hand at the Nuremberg rally….I will refrain from naming names but the attendees included people who became lawyers, judges, and members of parliament…

I was banned from that campus for protesting what I saw…and I never imagined even when I was part of the vanguard of the men’s rights movement and one of the original group of MGTOW….that I would live to see any attempt to take back university campuses….yet I see it happening and it does my heart good.

There is a general misinformation in Canada that all police are SWAT trained and will risk their lives intervening if you call….the reality is very few police get that training and will only tape off the crime scene to contain the evidence. We have a law society who’s professors…like Tom Mulchair….believe that the worst offence you can commit is depriving a lawyer of his or her opportunity to perform kabuki theatre.

I studied and taught martial arts for 25 years and I saw law students who were formidable fighters come to the dojo beaten up because they decided to take the beating rather than risk their future careers….

My advice in situations of altercation and self defence is to remember that lady justice wears a blindfold.

On many occassions I have convinced adversaries to abstain from violence because NOBODY including them…is safe on the blind side of justice….and settling matters on the blind side of justice was fine by me…..do not feel obliged to involve the law….truth be known….that’s fine with the agents of the law too though they would never publicly admit that ..as long as they don’t have a dead body to deal with….and your assailants are not going to feel obliged to involve them either……:-)

Unpopular speech keeps the conversation going.
commented 2016-10-13 21:46:19 -0400
I sincerely hope these SJW’s are just on campus to protest, and not in fact, attending the University in any formal capacity. If so, they should be evicted quickly and forcibly, because obviously their tiny brains are so filled with BS that there is no room left for knowledge. Their actions insult intelligence.

The only thing you need to know to defend your right to free speech is how to throw a decent right cross and a head butt. The snowflake fascists who are trying to censor your rights have never been in a real scrap in their short ignorant lives, nor do they expect the people they oppress to fight – self defense, learn how, use often, repeat as needed.
