The University of Chicago of stepped up to the plate and has blasted left-wing millennials for moaning about 'safe spaces' and 'trigger warnings' by flat out banning them completely.
In a letter to its incoming class of 2020, the university made it clear that other points of view must be respected. This is in relation to schools across North America protesting and whining when speakers they don't like are scheduled to give talks at their schools.
Just this year the likes of Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos and others have had events shut down by the 'Trigglypuffs' of the world.
Here is what the University of Chicago told its incoming class.
“Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to the college at the University of Chicago. Earning a place in our community of scholars is no small achievement and we are delighted that you selected Chicago to continue your intellectual journey.
Once here you will discover that one of the University of Chicago’s defining characteristics is our commitment to freedom of inquiry and expression. … Members of our community are encouraged to speak, write, listen, challenge, and learn, without fear of censorship. Civility and mutual respect are vital to all of us, and freedom of expression does not mean the freedom to harass or threaten others. You will find that we expect members of our community to be engaged in rigorous debate, discussion, and even disagreement. At times this may challenge you and even cause discomfort.
Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so called ‘trigger warnings,’ we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own.”
Absolutely incredible. Check and mate.
