The Root Of Silencing Campaigns

The root of nearly every free-speech infringement on campuses across the country is that someone—almost always a liberal—has been offended or has sniffed out a potential offense in the making. Then, the silencing campaign begins. The offender must be punished, not just for justice’s sake, but also to send the message to anyone else on campus that should he or she stray off the leftist script, they too might find themselves investigated, harassed, ostracized, or even expelled. If the illiberal left can preemptively silence opposing speakers or opposing groups— such as getting a speech or event canceled, or denying campus recognition for a group—even better.

  1. For our generation of narcissists there is no Trinity “above,” no hell “below” no Moral Law, no immutable Truth, no sin, and no fear of judgment. Therefore they are free to be evil: to think evil, speak evil and commit acts of evil since there is only sovereign willful ‘self’ who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust and hate. Thus sodomy is no longer an act of arrogant defiance of God’s Law and all that’s natural and life-affirming but just another evolving gender and “silencing campaigns” are not infringements upon the rights of others but sensible punishment inflicted upon speech that injures the inflated pride of narcissists. Moreover, Satanism, the worship of pure evil, is no longer evil but just another religion that under the First Amendment allows Satanists to practice their evil religion:

    “An Oklahoma-based satanic group called Dakhma of Angra Mainyu has leased space in the Civic Center Music Hall, which is owned and operated by the city, for a black mass on Sept. 21. The event is booked for the Cityspace theater, the facility’s smallest theater space, said Jennifer McClintock, public information officer for the Civic Center.” (Satanic ‘black mass’ gets green light from U.S. city, Leo Hohmann,, 08/26/2014 )
