As colleges and universities prepare for the return of students in the coming weeks, one of the few administrators willing to criticize the tidal wave of intellectual intolerance on campus is expecting “a mess” when the new semester dawns.

It is a place where you can be at peace with your belief system, safe from any nasty little reality that might conflict, and make you slightly uneasy, uncomfortable. Yes, it is YOUR comfort that is important – NOT the other person’s. If they don’t agree with you, then they deserved NO comfort at all. And no freedom. You, on the other hand, are free to speak your illiterate nonsense at the top of your voice at anyone, because you are – by definition – righteous in all of your beliefs. So, a safe space is a place for righteous people protected from the evil of everyday reality.
What a crock. This is way beyond messy. This is ideological fascism. And these same illiterate and out of control, emotion-driven youth who cannot and will not relate to actual reality who will be running our country? God help us. I am glad I will be dead by the time they fully rise to power. Because there will no longer be a United States of America under their fascist rule, it will have become – if it still exists at all – Amerika.
