Again: Limits To Free Speech On Campuses

In recent times there have been many in or about our university/colleges who maintain that some ill defined “hate speech”should not be allowed in academia. Some of those persons have even used such criminal mob actions as present “a clear and present danger of death or great bodily harm” to others.
The less offensive of those Fascists “shout down” speakers or misuse (Often cowardly) administrators to block any efforts to present them with “politically incorrect” ideas (And heaven fore-fend!) have them run-the-risk of thinking.

Then, what limits should or might be set on speech?
  1. That which the speaker (ie Not criminal respondents) presents the above-cited “clear and present danger” (eg Falsely crying out “FIRE!” in a crowded theater or lecture hall).
  2. That which interferes with the free speech rights of invited/authorized speakers and those who wish to listen to them and think about the views or knowledge presented by such a person.

The dangerous thugs who use or attempt-to-use physical force against rightful speakers (And, their audiences) must be very directly informed that any person can use any level of force to effectively-and-immediately stop a violent attack or even one that is reasonably perceived to be such.

Baring speakers or excluding some from audiences is an attack on both our nation's support of free speech and a cowardly attack on “Academic Freedom”!

NOTA BENE: Please refer to my blog entries of April 10 & 7, 2017.

Why So Many Academics Against Jews & Israel?

Why is there so much angst against Israel and, for that matter, those Jews who “keep the commandments” within our colleges and universities?

I suggest it is because Israel: Is a real democracy; Has a well-armed citizenry most of its men have required (Or for women voluntary) military-combat training with the most modern, individual, weapons; Does not prosecute citizens who shoot-down terrorists; Effectively reduced violent crime by "building a wall"; Has criminally prosecuted its head of government; Does not limit (Non-violent) expressions of religious belief to the inside of houses-of-worshipAnd, understands that the unalterable commands of Islam are evil and directly opposed to all civilized humans (As specially apparent in the "Palestinian State").

These and other like characteristics are so very much hated by the "snowflakes" and other academic Fascists who pollute our campuses.

Some of that hatred and aggression is aided-and-abetted by on-campus Muslims loyally following the commands of Islam to do as much harm as possible to Jews and Israel.

I also suggest that Jews (Like those of Chinese decent) tend to honor scholars over others and academic success over other marks-of-achievement. [This has resulted is some “prestigious” schools setting quotas against both groups for being too academically prepared.]

Polarization In The USA

Denying the USA's "polarization", from academic ivory towers or reality-denying outlets for "lame street media" writers , does not serve the common good. by failing to provide the People of various points-of-view and the extent to which they do, in fact, divide American citizens, legal immigrants and "illegals".

The following should/must be considered:
1. The division, on often geographic/political-district boundaries, between "the right" and the "Nanny State" follower of the DNC as often cause State legislatures to either stop acting OR to to crush the Members of "the other Party" and their requests for "compromise".--Which may OR may-not involve drawing district lines to maximize party majorities in selected districts.
2. The division between those who support democratically passed laws and state-constitutional and traditional definitions of marriage vs. those who oppose such and go to those judges "making law from the bench"----Often in violation of the intent of those who wrote our Constitution and Bill Of Rights . [To Those Who Oppose the provisions of the  Constitution: Please use the democratic process of amendment contained within that basic law rather than the tyranny of judges.]
4. The division between the followers of the "Religion Of Atheism” who wish to, unconstitutionally and in an Islamist style, suppress other religions and drive them out of the public square and view.
5. The like division between the People, legislative bodies as the the fullest exercise of the "right to keep and bear arms" under the Second Amendment (With its "shall not be infringed" clause) as is/was consistent with the intent of the Founders of this Republic---As most often reflects the divisions noted in #1 above).
6. The division between those who seriously (As demonstrated by recent efforts of the People, on a more-or-less ad hoc basis to stop buses loaded with "illegals") object to illegal immigration and those (Including too many elected officials (Of both Parties who are "pimping" for Latino votes) who do not wish the strict enforcement of our democratically passed immigration laws.
7. The division between those who will admit that there is a minority of Blacks who are actively seeking out Whites  to attack by "The knock out game" and violent "Flash Mobs"  and those who recognize that the police are unable (OR, unwilling) to stop such deaths and other injuries to the innocent, leaving them to protect themselves and innocent others.
8. The division between those who hold that Islam is "only just another religion" and those who hold the position that it is a “criminal-terrorist ideology” much like the KKK or the Nazi SS neo-paganism---With only a thin veneer of religiosity.

The real question is: Are those divisions as severe as those of the 1770s and 1850s as led to bloody civil wars---And, an increase of freedom in our land?

Protecting Free Speech & Academic Freedom

There have been Fascist mobs at many colleges/universities who have attacked the constitutional free speech rights (And, “academic freedom”) of invited speakers and those who wished to listen to them.
They have done so by “shouting down” those speakers and by physical assaults as “present a clear and present danger of death or great bodily harm” to others---Which perceived danger allows the police or anyone else to use deadly force to protect the innocent.

Before any event likely to produce those tyrannical acts the responsible and duty-bound school administrators should both assure that protected persons who will video-record those talks and insure that a force-sufficient of armed police are present.

Such officials should before and at those events make the following announcements:
1. Announce that any student or college employee who attacks that free-speech exercise of academic freedom will be immediately banned from campus and, after the usual due-process hearing, formally expelled or fired;
2. The audience will be video-recorded and any such persons will be identified;
3. Any concealment of faces-and-identities will also result in the same actions;
4. Police officers have been asked to be present per my request; 
5. Any acts of violence will both result in the above, punitive actions, and arrest by police officers and referral for criminal prosecution;  And,
6. This college has advised those police that it has no objections to the use of any force necessary to execute any such arrests AND, more specially, to halt any acts which represent "a clear and present danger of death OR great bodily harm" to others.
