Princeton Free Speech Class Canceled

It is reassuring to see educators educate rather than recite propaganda. Here an Ivy League professor demonstrates why we cannot have free speech in the erstwhile Land of the Free:

“Anthropology 212: Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy, and Pornography,” a course on freedom of expression at Princeton University has been “reluctantly” cancelled, Professor Lawrence Rosen informed his students…

Last week Prof. Rosen received national attention for using the N-word in this class on freedom of expression. … One report, cited in Princeton’s main campus newspaper, says that Rosen asked, “What is worse, a white man punching a black man, or a white man calling a black man a n****r?”

Only persons of politically preferred pigmentation are allowed to utter the N-word. But Rosen defiantly asserted his right to use it as needed to make a point in an academic setting.

A witness recounted an occurrence during the class that may explain why it was canceled:

A male student of color stood up, inches from professor Rosen’s face and shouted “F*** YOU,” this witness claimed. Just before that, a female student of color had shouted at Rosen, as the first was approaching, “do you feel safe right now.”

This thuggery did not take place in a prison yard, but in an Ivy League classroom. Thanks again, Affirmative Action.

The event confirmed that our hard-won right of free speech has gone on the sacrificial pyre along with everything else we have given up in the name of political correctness. Not even a professor in his classroom is free to say what blacks decide is offensive.

Yet we are still expected to pretend they are oppressed, in order to explain low levels of achievement.

On tips from TCS III and Bodhisattva.

    Communist, Progressive, Liberal trash, have made higher education into a useless money pit, and waste of time. The victims of this monetary and intellectual fraud are not qualified to do anything, or be of value to any corporation or even small business. Don’t hire them.

    Progressives are anti-free speech because they’re anti-truth…. That, and they’re authoritarians.

    These millennials are living in delusions because they’ve been taught that the “truth” is anything they want it to be. Which of course is why progressives these days use language like “your truth” – they don’t say “the truth”.. If they don’t “agree” with the way something is – they will just pretend that “something” doesn’t exist.

    When you have kids walking around like dictators in their own little delusion er alt-reality that has potential to severely corrupt society.

    This needs to be stopped before it’s too late.

    Princeton skips eligible students for quota students and gets what it deserves.

    Which raises the question….why would a qualified person wish to go there????

    This is what the liberals have always wanted. Now they have it. Lots of luck getting hired after graduation. Affirmative action sure has worked out to be a positive for our country. With that and some more illegal immigrants we should have a perfect environment for learning. Sign me up. After graduating from such an institution, I’ll be able to walk away with $50-100,000 in student loan debt and a job that pays $25,000. Great

    It seems that the Ivy schools are the worst offenders; so in less than 20 years, their reputations for excellence are all but gone. They will only get by on their past history for so long before the private paying public decides the tuition is not worth a damn cent.
    I certainly don’t view them as erudite or exceptional as they have dumbed down their qualifications for students to be accepted.
    Pathetic.
