Democracy Dies with a Heckler’s Veto

Once again, Daniel Greenfield has dropped a reality bomb on his readers.

 

The free speech movement is an absolute joke when the leftists among us decide who has the right to speak and on what topic.

If you want your children or grandchildren to receive a real undergraduate education, don’t send them to Berserkely!

Democracy Dies in Darkness was the Post’s grandstanding response.

But it’s the heckler’s veto that truly kills free societies.

Whether it’s Muslim terrorists who hate cartoons or leftists who reject free speech, the blackmail of violence, real or threatened, brings the marketplace of ideas to a halt.Berkeley was once renowned as the home of the Free Speech movement.

Increasingly it’s becoming the place where free speech goes to die. The shadow of the heckler’s veto is spread by an institutional left that is eager for the excuse to impose it.

Not all hecklers are created equal.

 

The hecklers of the left always have special privileges. And when the heckler’s veto is exercised, we must look beyond the hecklers, their bats, and pepper spray, to the institutions that aid and abet them.And when the heckler’s veto is exercised, we must look beyond the hecklers, their bats, and pepper spray, to the institutions that aid and abet them.

If a society means anything, it must have the ability to maintain public spaces free of the heckler’s veto.

Without it, a society is little more than violent Socialist blackmail with a human face.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
