According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, about 30% of college students favor censorship. That’s up from 22% two years ago.

Even more alarming, 53% of students believe “promoting an inclusive society” is a higher priority than protecting free speech rights. Over a third say it is sometimes acceptable to shout a speaker down, and one in 10 approve of violent disruption.

The last figure may seem small, but it means some 2 million collegians in the United States believe it can be OK to use violence to stop speech they don’t like.

Commonly used deplatforming efforts also have a chilling effect, especially when they involve violent mobs — all to familiar in the Bay Area.

  1. In Periods of American History, we have seen movements that are similar.. This isn’t new. There are always dumbed down idiots who want many things they don’t like curtailed.

    All it takes for evil to prevail, Is for good men to do nothing.

    . We will resist and keep America on the course our founders set us on.
