If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps.

Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson.

Okay, my ATS peoples. I am an advocate for free speech. I've tried to always be consistent on that issue.

I've defended;
Westboro Baptist
OWS
I've even stated that firing of tv political pundits on MSNBC and CNN weren't a good idea.

But this is what passes for freedom for the next generation of "leaders".

She calls it "Academic Justice".
Linkovich

More from the article. . .


In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism.



“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” asked Korn in her column.

The column’s subtitle was even more direct: “Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice.”


So is this what we have to look forward to? Progressive "justice"?

Basically, that's just do what I say, earn what I say, say what I want you to say, behave how I tell you to.

As always, read, reply, ignore, or start a career shaving wooly caterpillars and knit tiny sweaters.

I leave it up to you.

Hey beez, there is an old book...I have an old copy.

The title: Harvard Hates America
Read it along time ago, and it was spot on.
I highly recommend getting a copy.

Oh yeah one more thing....Obama and many other cabal
figures have come from that Harvard 'institution'.

This has got to be some of the most closed minded thinking ever. Don't let people say what they think and want???? That's pretty much what I'm getting from her.

Closed minded.

Narrow minded.

And probably afraid that she'd lose an argument if an opposing side was presented.

I think this only goes to prove one thing...very clever people go to Harvard.

Alongside very clever people, who think and say absolutely bloody idiotic things occasionally.

It takes all sorts.

Sorry.

Not allowed.

All "free" speech has to be approved by the free speech proctor.

Some of the dumbest people I've ever met were at University.

Some of the smartest people I've ever met, never finished high school.

Her views are not clever at all, in fact, they're completely idiotic.



From her crazy liberal rambling:

Instead, I would like to propose a more rigorous standard: one of “academic justice.” When an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue.


The irony is just too much.

Some days I wish there was a free america hit squad this type of thing could be reported to. You know an organization of wet work guys loyal to our constitution that you could report violations to that could exterminate those in opposition to our way of life. Sometimes my fantasies make me hopeful for the day when...

ETA: I know not only is this harsh but some would say against the very free speach I wish to protect. Let me be clear I don't mind any speach save for the kind that pushes for limiting the very right used to utter the words of disrespect to our constitution.

I don't think she deserves to be singled out for any particular scorn or animus. From my experience she's just a typical
"progressive" Actually, it's sort of refreshing to have one just come out and say it rather than trying to pretend they're open to a two way conversation.

So authoritarianism to ensure liberalism? Makes sense ...

Hahahaha!


This asshole....


Someone should take away her rights to speak/think, and then ask her how she feels about the subject.

Hmmm, if that's the way she feels I'm sure the bullyboy of North Korea would welcome her into the fold. Let's take up a collection and send her a one-way ticket. Dennis Rodman could accompany her and provide an introduction.

This is the truth.

For a long time, people on the right (or conservative) side of the argument just assumed that the opposite numbers were mistaken or had differing views on how to make this country great. We thought that if we just talked long enough and discussed things, we could hammer it out.

What we missed is that they were playing for keeps and somewhere along the way, they changed the dialogue. It went from a simple disagreement to a struggle of good v. evil with us playing the evil.

In her mind, she is completely justified because the opposing viewpoints aren't just wrong or misguided. They're evil. She likely believes that with all the fervor of any true religious zealot, too.
