UK: Extremely Selective Free Speech

Apparently, 112 events featuring extremist speakers took place on UK campuses in the academic year 2016/2017, according to a recent report by Britain’s Henry Jackson society: “The vast majority of the extreme speakers recorded in this report are Islamist extremists, though one speaker has a background in Far-Right politics….” That one speaker was Tommy Robinson both of whose events were cancelled, one due to hundreds of students planning to demonstrate to protest his appearance. The report does not mention student protests at any of the Islamist events.

  • Liberal Progressive

    That only makes sense in a Muslim country like the UK.

    Until all muslims are expunged from all positions related to security then the threat will only increase.

    • Mark Matis

      Until one convinces “Law Enforcement” to decide they chose the wrong career, the threat will only increase. Do you still not understand that it is THEY who do their Masters’ bidding in these manners?????

  • The Buddhist Butterfly

    I don’t think they quite understand the concept.
