About :

I was invited to Queen's University March 5 to give the inaugural lecture/discussion of the Liberty Lecture series, funded by Faculty of Law alumnus, Gregory Piasetzki (LLB 1980).

Dr. Bruce Pardy (https://law.queensu.ca/faculty-research/faculty-directory/pardy) and I discussed the increasingly frequent requirements for compelled speech that characterize the Canadian sociopolitical landscape.

The entire event was, in a word, surreal. Initial controversy over its acceptability rose to the point where the Dean of the Law School William Flanagan and Principal of Queen’s Daniel Woolf wrote missives in defence of free speech (the former: http://bit.ly/2EQJDm3; the latter: http://bit.ly/2tJB8VB). The Queen's University "Human Rights Office" posted a link to the Levana Gender Advocacy Centre and Education on Queer Issues Project "active support" efforts during this event at their “Trans-Positive and People of Colour Positive Chill-In” in Dunning Hall, room 11, where there was coloring pages, music, food, and discussion.

The 900 or so people who attended (who comported themselves admirably and thoughtfully throughout) were subject to a continual 90-minute barrage of noise generated by the protestors, who leaped up on the stained glass windows lining the hall and banged continually on them, breaking one. Inside, we could see shadowy figures dimly outlined through the colored glass. The outside doors were barricaded. One protestor was caught on film saying "Lock them in and burn it down." The din was substantial and ominous, although it is much attenuated in this video, due to the nature of the microphones used, which were designed to pick up speech close at hand.

The protestor who broke the window was arrested, but not before she bit a policeman, attempted to kick the back window out of a police cruiser, and was found to be in possession of a garrotte, a particularly brutal weapon with no defensive utility whatsoever (http://bit.ly/2HoTDAu). The man who cursed so profoundly and eloquently near the beginning of the lecture accosted me and my crew after the talk, and yelled and cursed and threatened at close quarters during our 200-yard walk from the venue to the parkade.

No one who was at this event will forget it.

Not good. Not good at all.

Does the University not have security to stop those who would disrupt a university event or lecture.

You hear the barbarians here? The professors and administrators at Queen's University are responsible for that. This is exactly what they inculcate in these young minds. And notice they did not lift a finger to stop it. This is outcome they are aiming for. Notice also that the local political authorities have clearly ordered the police not to interfere with their pet thugs. State sanctioned physical intimidation. That's the Left.

Wouldn't it have been interesting if they went outside and offered the group a chance to come in and join the dialogue? See if they could articulate their perspective and be open to an alternative one. I have no idea what they were protesting other than just the opportunity of free speech.

Another inspiring example of keeping your head when others are losing theirs". I know these rebellious kids well. They really don't know where they are much less what they are doing. But it is a mistake to think they're not getting an education.

If I had been in that audience, the protestors would have been permitted to leave without incident. But if they sprayed their shit on ME, they'd need a fucking ambulance. Speech is one thing, Assault is another, and I will throat-punch anyone who physically attacks me.

That banging on the windows is nightmarish. It's frightening. It reminds me of a little child trying to annoy their big brother or big sister to scream "stop it" and the quick dissolve satisfaction that that brings.

These ‘educated’ SJWs do not even understand the definition of the word bigot!
To deny an alternative opinion with such force is not only ignorant and stupid, but is the clearest demonstration of bigotry.

The speaker not JP has misrepresented conservative philosophy. The belief in the individual is conservative. It is not a party and is not responsible for shutting down anyone's speech. It is more in the line of stoicism.

Fascism is not synonmymous with racial superiority though. It does place a large emphasis on top down authoritarian order, but the fascist states of Mussolini's Italy and Franco's Spain didn't really touch on race at all, only the nazi regime really. Hell, Mussolini had some Jews in his blackshirts.

Blimey, that has to be the most PATHETIC protest ever. Banging and scratching on the doors, windows or walls is what a dog or spoiled child does. They really do need Mummy to smack their bum-bums and to put them on the naughty step for a little while - AND - NO choccy bars after din-dins, okay...?
...not to worry though, they'll need their nappies changing in a minute so they'll stop then, anyway. Phew!

When I watched the paunding croud I made an association with Bulgarian communist group which made the bloodiest terrorist attack on Bulgarian soil. The atentat in the church Saint Nedelya in Sofia.
It was carried out on April 16, 1925, on Holy Thursday, when a group of extremists from the Bulgarian Communist Party's military organization blew the roof of St. Nedelya church in Sofia. At that time, the funeral ceremony of General Konstantin Georgiev, killed on April 14 of that year by other Communists, was held there. The special purpose of the attack was to eradicate the military and political elite of the country. The attack killed 134 people and wounded about 500, part of them died later by their wounds.
Among the casualties were innocent women, children, students and disabled war veterans.
When you see this kind of bahaviour led by blind hatred, be careful.
The same communist party ruled in Bulgaria for 45 years.
In the first years of the communist regime almost all the intelligencia was obliterated. Medical doctors, scientists, buisnesmen, professors, teachers, priests and Christian pastors were thrown in forced labor camps. Most of them died there.
Some of them survived and wrote their memories.
If you care of your children, do NOT let communists win. Еvery communist regime is degenerating into dictatorship. No exeptions.

Who were those young white men yelling "F*** white supremacy"? You know if any one of them had stopped and said "Hey, I don't think we should be breaking these windows" the rest of the crowd would have turned on them and called them racists. It is very revealing as to who the intolerant ones are.

57.45 mark, "I know where identity politics leads......it leads to the gulag, it leads to the concentration camps, it leads to blood in the streets, we don't need that here, we're doing pretty well, so we can leave it". Phew....not jumping the shark here are we Jordan? If Jordan didn't spend so much time concerning himself with "the marxists, the radicals and the extreme left", he might possibly have crystalised most of this seminar into the reasonable libertarian principle, "educate/communicate....don't legislate". This might get a simple message across without all the aggro.............and help reduce the anxious, high pitched tone in his voice.

Anyone who doesn’t think the people pounding on the windows wouldn’t slaughter you if given the chance, you’re delusional. These are the same types of people that murdered millions in the last century. They are your neighbors, coworkers, relatives, etc. Never give them any power.

As an ex SJW, whenever he points out how silly it all is i am prone to laugh nervously lol
Im glad thats not my life anymore, i feel like im happier since i let that go.
I did protests, organized events and all that, from the ages of 16-18. I didnt even know how to make a resume but i was out there shouting nonsense about politics i thought i understood. It turns out its easy to convince a teenager they know better than everyone else lol.
I had an interest in politics and social issues but instead of being encouraged to study and learn the basics of it, i was taught to lead chants and organize mobs.

I know enough now to know i dont know everything.
And I now value a long, tiring debate over a screaming match any day.
