Fareed Zakaria Hits The Nail On The Head!
CNN HOST FAREED ZAKARIA DESTROYS TOLERANT LIBERALS: “FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THOUGHT IS NOT JUST FOR WARM FUZZY IDEAS THAT WE FIND COMFORTABLE…”
CNN’s Fareed Zakaria is a must-watch, as it touches on the very core of the purported tolerance among liberals
While America’s White Left believes their policies of socialism, cultural assimilation and outright disdain for anything other than their own righteous ideologies are the only way forward, Zakaria succinctly explains that it goes against the whole idea of what Liberalism is supposed to be.
American universities these days seem committed to every kind of diversity except for intellectual diversity… Conservative voices and views, already a besieged minority, are being silenced entirely… The campus thought police have gone after serious conservative thinkers like Heather McDonald and Charles Murray, as well as firebrands like Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter…
Some were dis-invited… others booed interrupted and intimidated…
It’s strange that this is happening on college campuses that promise to give their undergraduates a liberal education… the word ‘liberal’ in this context has nothing to do with today’s partisan language… but refers instead to the Latin root ‘pertaining to liberty’
And at the heart of the liberal tradition in the Western world has been freedom of speech… from the beginning people understood that this meant protecting and listening to speech with which you disagreed.
Freedom of speech and thought is not just for just warm fuzzy ideas that we find comfortable… it’s for ideas that we find offensive.
There is also an anti-intellectualism on the left… an attitude of self righteousness that says we are so pure, so morally superior, we cannot bear to hear an idea with which we disagree.
Liberals think they are tolerant, but often they aren’t.
