You see, in the academy, it's is all about encouraging free speech
– That is, when that “free speech” comes from a sawed-off Messianic Iranian mouthpiece for theocratic despots, the kind of terror-sponsoring reactionaries whose attitude toward women and gays is, to be kind, rather parochial.
Whereas HATE SPEECH…well, that’s a different story entirely.
And it must be stopped, even if doing so means shouting down the speaker so that he is ultimately unable to make his argument.
Remember: nothing shows how much you care more than your refusal to tolerate intolerance.
