Berkeley’s heirs are now proud censors indeed

From Guy Benson at Townhall,

Take ten minutes and watch this profoundly creepy conversation between Tucker Carlson and a left-wing fascist named Yvette Felarca, who smirks with pride as she describes the riot she helped foment in order to “protect” her community from the threat of words. Carlson opens the segment by showing another clip of Felarca personally engaging in violence during an anti-fascist rally in California last year, then questions her about her big anti-speech “triumph” at Berkeley earlier this month. She calmly — and almost sociopathically — makes the case that speech she deems to be “fascist” could lead to “genocide,” and “rape,” and therefore must be forcefully suppressed “By Any Means Necessary” (BAMN), which is the name of her radically illiberal organization. More.

She is, of course, a public school teacher. Will possibly turn up writing study guides and curricula.

Reality check: The student mobs are, we will find, Orwell’s Outer Party. They will only ever be useful for oppressing others. Asking whether they believe in freedom of expression is like asking if Tuesday wears a blue hat.

Our first step is surely to clean up our personal acts by ceasing to give private money to universities, forcing the government and big business to do it. Then, when they get sick of paying protection, our private ransom to avoid the violence and oppression may be, like a form of tax break, reduced over the years… .

Until, that is, the dear little radioactive snowflakes are out looking for work …
