Geher’s Free Speech Task Force has already hosted events on campus, one of which was a talk by Dr. Jonathan Haidt on victimhood culture, safe spaces, and political correctness.
The chair of a university Free Speech Task Force bashed what he called the “stifling politically correct left” and is planning to create content and events pertaining to free speech.
“Censoring, just banning someone on campus and saying we consider you dangerous because of your ideas, because of [sic] what you said doesn’t have a lot of educational value,” said Glenn Geher, Chair of the Free Speech Task Force at State University of New York (SUNY) New Paltz. “This is a place where all voices can be heard, even if some of them are unpleasant.”
The cancellation of SUNY’s debate with Accuracy in Media (AIM) director of investigative journalism Cliff Kincaid, yet again puts the university at the center of the national discourse about free speech on college campuses.
“What I find troubling, which people don’t seem to be talking about that much, is what is the point of bringing people who are essentially hate mongers to a college campus?” said SUNY sociology professor Anne R. Roschelle. “I disagree with the idea of a university spending money on someone [sic] is a known hate monger.”

Students4Justice wants a segregated space to organize social justice efforts. This request is on the organization’s list of demands it sent to school officials. They’ve coordinated campus protests to pressure administrators to cave. And circulated an online petition addressed to the university’s president.
A student activist group at the University of Michigan is demanding campus officials provide them with a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts.
The demand is one of several lodged by Students4Justice, who this month coordinated campus protests to pressure administrators to submit.
They wrote in an online petition that President Mark Schlissel has rebuffed their demands,The College Fix reports.
‘Our president has blatantly ignored us and it is time for us to speak up. We have been told that our demands are “rude”,’ Students4Justice states on its Facebook page in announcing its petition.
So far, the organization’s petition has 134 supporters.
‘We are calling on someone to care about students’ concerns and to lead us with integrity and help us fight against the oppression and hateful acts that try to destroy us and our community.’
The clamor for a ‘a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize, and do social justice work’ comes even as the public university builds a $10million multicultural student center.

Creative Artists Agency (CAA) is set to host a political summit called “Take Action Day” on February 23, signaling that Hollywood is doubling down on political advocacy in the Trump era.
The summit will feature speeches from newly-elected U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA 23), according to Variety. Clients and industry pros are encouraged to attend workshops and view presentations on issues ranging from immigration to civil rights and the environment, among others.
Other speakers include former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, and Salam Al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
CAA — one of the world’s largest talent agencies — represents some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including directors J. J. Abrams and Kathryn Bigelow, actresses Jennifer Aniston and Emily Blunt and actor Jeff Bridges, as well as politicians like Joe Biden and Barbra Boxer. The agency also represents musicians like Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.
CAA president Richard Lovett says he hopes the summit will offer its high-profile attendees the tools to “take immediate action” on the political issues they are passionate about.
“Since 1995, CAA has been committed to providing leadership and support in addressing numerous issues of our time,” Lovett said in a statement. “Our ‘Take Action’ event is meant to educate and inform, and, even more importantly, provide attendees the ability to take immediate action in support of causes about which they are passionate.”

No Campus for White Men shines a bright light on the growing obsession with diversity, victimization and identity politics on today’s college campuses, and shows how it is creating an intensely hostile and fearful atmosphere that can only lead, ultimately, to ever greater polarization in American society.

Welfare systems attract people who are more likely to depend on welfare; multiculturalism ensures that those people never integrate into the surrounding society, making it nearly impossible for them to get off of welfare or adopt Western values. This is a problem now recognized by nearly every major European leader.
While the left-wing media in the United States claims that Donald Trump is responsible for Muslim riots in Sweden – even though increases in crime in Sweden long predate Trump’s presidency – his general take on multiculturalism in Europe has been proved right once again. On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that Danish Muslims fighting on behalf of ISIS were still receiving Danish welfare payments. Here’s the Times:
About 145 Danes have traveled to Syria or Iraq to fight for militant groups since 2012, according to the Danish security and intelligence services….Last year, the news media reported that more than two dozen Danish citizens receiving unemployment benefits had traveled to Syria to fight for ISIS, even though the law requires recipients to live in Denmark….Officials said that since last year, municipal and state authorities had been trying to collect about $95,000 in welfare benefits that had been wrongly paid to 29 citizens who had gone to Syria to fight for ISIS.
The law in Denmark prevents removal of welfare benefits without a full-scale trial, apparently.

Campus protests have recently reached a new level of intensity, with riots even breaking out in Berkeley, California earlier this month. Dr. Michael Rectenwald, a clinical professor of liberal studies at New York University, joins the podcast to share his insights on what he sees from the most extreme groups on campus.
Professor Rectenwald gained notoriety when he announced he was the author of a previously anonymous Twitter page called “Deplorable NYU Prof.” Dr. Rectenwald controversially was placed on paid leave at NYU after his revelation. Were his Twitter page and his paid leave related? Professor Rectenwald tells us, and also explains how “social justice warriors” have taken over most campuses.
Watch the full 77-minute session, in which Donald Trump says he wants to update the people on the ‘incredible progress’ made in the past four weeks. The president turns fire on the media, calling the industry dishonest and ‘out of control’. He dismisses reports of chaos and conspiracy in his administration and claims his team is running like a ‘fine-tuned machine’.
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
