‘Intimidation tactics’ won’t deter free speech rally near WLU: organizers

Organizers of a free speech rally near the campus of Wilfrid Laurier University say “intimidation tactics” from “militant” leftists won’t derail support for Lindsay Shepherd, the WLU teaching assistant wrongly sanctioned for showing students a debate surrounding the merits of genderless pronouns.

Free speech advocates from WLU and nearby University of Waterloo are bracing for a possible counter-demonstration after members of Waterloo’s Revolutionary Student Movement (RSM) referred to Friday’s rally as hateful and discriminatory.

    “Hateful” is nothing but code for “not in accordance with cultural Marxism.

    Both Conrad Black and Rex Murphy have stories today on this subject, at the National Post website.

    Criminalizing “hate” or hatred is like criminalizing any emotion is insane. The Revolutionary Students’ Movement, or any group that wants to remove or subvert our liberties should be attacked on sight.

      I now officially “hate” most university campuses. It wasn’t always this way. People and institutions EARN my hatred. Hatred is a very valid emotion.

        If you will notice, the “allowed” direction of hatred is very directed and quite specific in its direction.
        Not ALL hatred is disallowed, only permitted hatred is allowed. Any hatred directed towards men, Whites from the British Isles and Northren Europe, Christians, and social conservatives is not only permitted but encouraged.

        Hear! Hear! I always say hate gets a bad rap.

    Pegida rally tomorrow (Sat 25th) at 11:00 am on the steps of London City Hall. Rally Number 4! Going to be nice weather. Perhaps the Marxists and Anti-FreedomofAssociation counter protesters will take the day off to rake leaves!!!

      Hopefully , they will both meet their Waterloo.
      If this is the type of garbage that is educating my kids—
      I ain’t gonna Pay.

  • Shebel

    Maybe it is time –to get your University degree on-line—
    Yes–I know that is Now a current trend — BUT–
    It used to be that Good Parents sent their kids to University so they could learn all about Many things and interact and give their Opinions–
    Usually based on what they knew and experienced Before University Life.

    Now- Universities are becoming ‘mini–indoctrination’ centers.

    I send my kid to LEARN
    not to be INDOCTRINATED.

    I used to think Pajama boy had the most punchable face of the decade. These two are running into his territory.

    • disqusW6sf

      They each look like a creep.

  • Shebel

    Forget about that fat ,bearded POS on the Left–
    Look at that Asshole on the Right.
    I bet that he thinks that he looks young and hip with his shaved side hair and his golden locks looped ever so carefully. We can see the ‘grey’ .
    Those Dimples are to Die for—-along with your career. But–
    It is that carefully coifed CLEFT in your chin–that really sets you apart from mere Mortals.
    You ain’t NO Kirk Douglas–boy.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Comes the revolution these are the sort of assholes who will be early up against the wall.

  • bargogx1

    This is good. These guys are coming across as very peaceful and law-abiding, maybe even a litle meek. That will make it all the harder for the leftist media shills and politicians to blame the victim if they get attacked by violent leftists. And since this whole thing is so high-profile right now, it won’t be so easy for them to sweep the violence under the rug either.

    If arguments can’t be settled with words, violence is the answer.
