Andrew Klavan: Harvard decides "Free Speech" is far-right

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday's show, author and podcaster Andrew Klavan joined me to discuss the latest example of left-wing lunacy on campus.

Harvard has now decided that "free speech" is a dog whistle to the far-right.

The revelation comes after a student group was warned not to use "free speech" in the name of their campus event, which they cleverly named "Ideas Beyond Borders".

Andrew explains that this is a dangerous move, by labeling "free speech" far-right Harvard is effectively telling anybody who supports free speech that their only allies are on the far-right.

WATCH my interview with Andrew to see why this more proof of the importance of the FIRST Amendment to America's Constitution.

doesn’t take a genius to figure out ‘what " is controlling our universities and other places of higher learning- oh and the public system of education. Especially here in Canukistan however I am disturbed that it is ramping up in the U.S. as well. Seems we the free west are “dying” to be oppressed, silenced and under complete control of tyrants be they politicians or fanatical religious groups- namely one in particular which is invading the entire globe after effectively destroying their own countries and their own lives via their religion and culture for the past thousand years and now is on the verge of destroying the entire planet with full support of the western world.
Now if that isn’t INSANITY, I don’t know what is!
Glad I’m in the late fall/winter of my life and even more thankful my children (one about to marry) has decided NOT to bring any more innocent lives into this anti life society/world!

For those on the right their is no such thing as free speech….it all comes at a cost now. Sometimes the price tag is such that lives can be trod upon or even ruined for saying something that but a few years ago may have spurred debate or may have simply been ignored if it wasn’t your cup of tea. With the advent of social media and the avalanche of political correctness unleashed by the uber left progressives over the last several years….well….things have changed….and not for the better. There was always an issue with speech and communist,ultra socialist and dictatorial regimes, but there was the other side of the coin known as the “free world” that offered balance and the freedoms including speech that kept the world from falling into the untenable position of total authoritarian rule. Now more and more idiots like our idiot in Ottawa are becoming embolden and are using social justice and ideology to drive speech, and in the case of Justin Trudeau we are rapidly entering an era of “compelled” speech. It is obvious, it is frightening, and it is dangerous. The corruption and liberal bias of the Pravda like CBC who jump to JT’s command…( as evidenced by this new app controversy)….and Justin’s utter disdain and obsession with trying to eliminate Rebel Media….makes it obvious we are entering the fight of our lives. M103 is on the horizon and MUST be dealt with and our wanna be dictator is like a runaway train. Stay strong folks and fight like hell. I for one want our kids and grandkids to have a chance at a free Canada….not the Canada that the metro sexual freak now in charge is proposing….PROGRESSIVE LIBERALISM…..PLAGUE OF THE 21st CENTURY.

It won’t last long for the doper, but now I see
he’s making prostitution like it’s something great.
He should turn his wife and daughter out on the
street. That way they can turn tricks at .25 cents
a pop. Just about like his mommy only she gave
it away.
Scheer, you had better play hardball and sling
the mud just like those communists do. Trudopes
daddy was a pedophile and, October 1970
he had Pierrie LaPorte kidnapped and murdered
because he was about to out trudeau. And these
papers I have in my hand say the RCMP knew and
did nothing. Trudeau’s must and still do give big
payouts to scum. The young are not smart enough
to know they will eventually have to pay the bill and
commie muslums will take their lives. Like his daddy
this kid and the liberal party are dismantling the family
unit for their perverted ideals. Think people, all you
alternate lifestyles under communism and muslims will
be butchered as they hate you.

MARXISM at work.

And yet they (the left) continue to speak freely. Just no free speech for anyone else.

As always with the left they demand something supposedly as a universal but really it is exclusionary. During the 60’s the leftists were all in favour of free speech. Now they’re agin’ it. What happened? They got free speech but they never intended it as a universal they just made it sound that way.

Kind of like abortion. We were supposed to debate this issue to come to an understanding Once the SCOC dumped the proposed legislation “the debate is over”. Never to be discussed again.

Leftists are an oily bunch, they are. You can always tell when they are lying- when their lips are moving.

“After all it’s 2015”…and after the goof was elected…after all it’s 2018… Now Canada is up against a wannabe dictator..falsedeau…

Any acknowledgement of reality or truth is now considered by the CBC / MSM and SJWs to be “alt-right” or “hate speach” , it truly is astonishing

Trudeau is on side with his admired basic dictator, Xi, who is taking action against free speech and censoring the internet from “wrongthink”. For Trudeau, public discourse must abide by the narrative – globalism, pro-Islam, climate change/taxes, open borders, anti-conservatism, diversity/divisiveness, socialism/Marxism – and if it’s not, then the freedom to object to said narrative must be taken away, just as his favorite dictator Xi is doing.

And the Nationalist Socialists, fascists, who also opposed “free speech” were far left. What does that make Harvard?
