College: The seedbed of liberal intolerance of free speech.

Read it and you’ll be aghast.

College campus are beginning to look life fascist breeding grounds.

Here’s one definition of fascism: a form of far-rightauthoritarian ultranationalism[1][2] characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy,[3]

Yes, yes, I know. The definition includes “far-right” and “ultranationism.” But take out those two terms and you’re presented with the philosophy that’s controlling higher education today.

“Dictatorial power:” President Joe Biden’s blizzard of executive orders (yes, yes, Donald Trump was guilty of the same thing) that assaults congressional powers. The Constitution, remember, Joe?

“Strong regimentation of society:” Everyone climb aboard the vaccination express. Schools and businesses shut down. Etc.

“Forcible suppression of opposition,” Don’t have your vaccination passport? Try disagreeing with any of the woke dictum. Social media will shut you down. Etc.

To get a true feel of the role of higher education, especially the suppression of free speech and independent thought, I introduce you to the College Fix. If you really want to get depressed about where America is heading, bookmark this site. Here are a few of their eye-opening, troubling posts:

Does a professor have the right to say ‘China virus’? At UDallas, the answer is no.

Half of college students fear expressing ideas in the classroom: survey

The case for allowing natural immunity COVID exemptions on college campuses

UC Berkeley’s latest ‘cluster hire’ fails to add intellectual diversity

This has been going on for years, even decades. Intolerance and enforced subservience. What happened to Liberal Arts?

  • Spoil alert: If you take out "far-right" and "ultranationalism" from the definition of fascism, it isn't fascism.

    The rest of your post is another edition of your hysterical rants and Enquirer-like sensationalism.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Fascism and Communism are convenient labels for authoritarian behavior practiced by governments and agreeing private organizations and businesses. Both are behaviors. Both can be utilized by either the left or the right. For instance, the Biden administration is practicing leftist fascism by pressuring businesses to do what the administration wants -- i.e., forced vaccinations, control of "misinformation" about the vaccines. Let's stop pretending that Fascist behavior is a hallmark of the right, especially when one of its biggest proponents was the head of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

    Dennis, let's stop pretending you know anything about Hitler or socialism. Hitler was in league with the Conservatives and Nationalists. He thought so little of German Socialists that he killed them along with Communists, Jews, and others. Here's Britannica on this:

    'Hitler allied himself with leaders of German conservative and nationalist movements, and in January 1933 German President Paul von Hindenburg appointed him chancellor. Hitler’s Third Reich had been born, and it was entirely fascist in character. Within two months Hitler achieved full dictatorial power through the Enabling Act. In April 1933 communists, socialists, democrats, and Jews were purged from the German civil service, and trade unions were outlawed the following month. That July Hitler banned all political parties other than his own, and prominent members of the German Communist Party and the Social Democratic Party were arrested and imprisoned in concentration camps. Lest there be any remaining questions about the political character of the Nazi revolution, Hitler ordered the murder of Gregor Strasser, an act that was carried out on June 30, 1934, during the Night of the Long Knives. Any remaining traces of socialist thought in the Nazi Party had been extinguished.'

    That you're making my point is totally lost on you. As with all useful idiots, Herr Hitler killed off the true believers to further install his authoritarian rule. The would-be dictators use any label to gain power and then do what despots do: rule with an iron fist and kill the opposition. Do you think Lenin was a socialist? A communist? Stalin? A socialist, communist? When both got the reigns of power the ideology was tossed out to pragmatic killing. Ask Trotsky if you don't believe me.

    You should recognize fascism as it is being practiced by the Left in this country, using corporations to enforce the will on the state. It's just a mechanism to achieve power. You wish to silence all who disagree with you. In the case of the unvaxxed you wish to bar them from society, hang a yellow star on them. Tell me how you are different from a Nazi?

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    You trivialize the Holocaust by equating ways to mitigate the pandemic with how Hitler treated the Jews. Shame, shame, shame.

  • BTW, Dennis, The College Fix is looking to hire an assistant editor. You'd be great at the job.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    So, the snuffing out of academic freedom and free speech on campus doesn't bother you? Guess not.
