University of Alberta demands pro-life club pay “protection money”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I spoke with Jay Cameron of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom's about the pro-life free speech controversy at the University of Alberta.

When a pro-life club attempted to hold an event on campus they were attacked by student leftists intent on shutting it down. These triggered SJWs were even aided by professors who allowed their classrooms to be used as staging areas for the mobs.

Instead of siding with the students who's freedom of speech was being denied, the university administration opted to give-in to the heckler's veto. Now the pro-life club is being ordered to cover $17,500 for security.

But no, the pooooor SJWs have to pout, hold their breath, stomp their feet and act like the average 6 year old when they encounter someone who holds a different viewpoint.

What a generation of immature children we have now going through higher education.

(snort!) Higher education my ass.

Andrew Stephenson asked, “What’s the alternative, that the taxpayers have to foot the bill for security?”

The alternative is for the snowflake socialist SJWs to develop some maturity and not become physical in their opposition.

Ideally it would be best if the snowflakes would come to realize that those who have different opinions from themselves also have the right to speak.

And even more idealistically it would be great if the snowflakes would debate those that oppose their viewpoint in a non-violent proper debate format.

What a novel concept … to actually debate your ideas in a public non-violent forum just as colleges and universities were meant to do!

What bloody arrogance to believe that no one else has the right to voice an opinion different from your own.

Andrew, you’d make a great crash test dummy. I suggest you change careers.

Andrew Stephenson i guess that abortion clinics should have to pay extra for cops if they are being hounded by violent protesters?

Mike Krchnak well said, Andrew is a an elitist bigot.

All knowing Andrew, it is now clear that you are not as smart as you believe yourself to be. Like all leftist regressive fucktards, facts mean nothing to you, this club is not the hazard, it’s the sociopathic fellow leftists that are. The club members are the targets of psychopathic snow flakes that can’t handle a discenting viewpoint, these pukes are the reason security is required. But, once again, don’t let facts get in the way of your version of reality.

’"Mike Krchnak commented 6 hours ago
Well there all knowing Andrew, you tell us. You know fucking well that this charge is not applied to the other clubs on campus"

“other clubs” aren’t security hazards.

Well Andrew, Muslim Student Associations promote Hitler Youth Week on many campuses in North America, support annihilating Jews is Israel; and the annual Al-Quds march – are they paying exorbitant security costs or venue rental fees?!!!! This hatred is tolerated on campus due to “diversity is our strength” and leftist alliance with Islamists. You are willfully blind!

Andrew your not very bright.
They should fire the professors and expell the students who have no room in their hate filled hearts for anyone else’s opinion.
This is going to lead to war in a lot of western countries who are allowing the Marxists to use violence to intimidate.
Arrest Antifa, BLM, George Soros and any other groups that use violence to advance their agenda. We already have laws against them they just need to be enforced by our politically weak politicians.

University of Alberta, like other campuses have turned into grifters!

Mark Sherman……I believe that the leftist regressives and the mafia operate in the exact same manner. See the liberal party of Canada, Democrats in the US, Labour Party in the UK.

Well there all knowing Andrew, you tell us. You know fucking well that this charge is not applied to the other clubs on campus. I believe it’s a signal to the leftist regressive Sociopaths on campus to not be tolerant of a certain type of free speech. Seeing that you’re the self proclaimed smartest poster to this site, I’m sure you will twist this all up to suit your narrative

This is a Jizya tax! We need to defund these institutions.

What’s the alternative, that the taxpayers have to foot the bill for security?

It’s pretty standard for universities to charge third parties for ancillary costs related to space rental.
commented 2017-10-19 12:05:45 -0400
So extortionist ‘protection’ money is now acceptable by publicly funded organizations?
Maybe the mafia should step up here?

I dont care what group has its speaker shut down by a protesters. All must be free to speak. Where was the permit /permission on the opposition side.

Charge all clubs, all speakers. Charge the counter/opposing clubs speakers the same charge.
Set up security and charge all sides to get in. Use the funds to pay the costs. Two separate areas. Photo ID to get in. Use fire, building, code,security, police as necessary.

Defund these Marxist mosh pits of public money. If they want to create little communist jurisdictions within the nation do it on their own dime.
