Brown university is the subject of intense criticism in the wake of a documentary from one of its graduates on the evisceration of free speech on campus. The elite school has followed the same course of other schools in declaring speech or symbols “micro aggressions” and allowing students to prevent speakers from appearing on campus or addressing other students. The film by Rob Montz is scathing and embarrassing as he shows students successfully barring people from uttering opposing views or shouting down a man because he is a white heterosexual.
This includes students proudly talking about how they succeeded to forcing the cancelation of a speech by the New York Police Commissioners because “tough questions are not enough” and some ideas should never be expressed on campus.
While Brown University has dismissed the film, it shows ridiculous scenes of students who clearly believe that they have a protected right to silence those with whom they disagree as well as faculty who have legitimized the attack on free speech.
Here is the Montz film:
