Free Speech Shit and Shinola Primer

My son is soon to be in college. He graduates high school in 14 months and soon will be on his way to college. Boy, the time does fly.

He and I have been having discussions of late of college life. What to expect, what not to do. Some of the conversation is inane. Such as, the difference between shit and shinola. Or the more serious, such as don't ever get into a car with someone that has been drinking.

Lately we have been talking about oh the crazy ultra-liberal shit happening on college campuses of late.

Safe Spaces. He believes that people who do this are basically "p*****s." He says, "nowadays you have young people you can't stand to hear something they disagree with, but in the 20th century you had young people going off to war or protesting against war and you didn't see them bitching about anything a the time."

Speech on Campus. We had a talk once when Ann Coulter and that crazy Milo Yiannopoulos were banned from college campuses because of their ideas. My son agreed with me that while we both find them abhorrent and brain damaged they have a right to speech. On the other hand one who finds these two and others like them disgusting also have the right to protest peacefully, ignore them, or close their eyes and stick their fingers in their ears.

Has much as I find Richard Spencer's views on Jews vile he does have the right to speech in this country.

If you don't like what someone says and they haven't directly threatened you are family with physical harm stop making every little microaggression as some insult to you.
