Opinion : The End of Free Speech at University

Opinion : The End of Free Speech at University
Accross the globe , Universities are increasingly becoming hostile places to basic human rights such as freedom of conscience , freedom of expression , freedom of speech even freedom of thought . 

Where as once upon a time universities where places of intellectual space where everyone could share different views and ideas , they are now places of safe space where students are shielded from certain views and ideas .  

In the video below , a group of students at Yale University attack Professor Nicholas Christakis , demanding his resignation after he and his wife sent an email to students stating that ... "if you don’t like a [Halloween] costume someone is wearing, look away, or tell them you are offended. Talk to each other. Free speech and the ability to tolerate offence are the hallmarks of a free and open society ". The message was in response to an email from the school’s Intercultural Affairs Committee that told students to avoid wearing halloween costumes which may be culturally insensitive  . 
  

Following that incident with the professor , two of the students were given university awards for "enhancing race and/or ethnic relations." . The professor's wife who had sent the email was forced to resign . 
 
In recent years , there have been many examples of students trying to shut down Free Speech. Last year in the US , a number of violent incidents occurred .

In California , at the University of Berkeley , former Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos was forced to cancel his speech after protesters stormed the campus , throwing smoke bombs and flares

  

At Claremont McKenna College , protesters shut down a planned speech by conservative commentator and author Heather Mac Donald who later described the incident as an "exercise of brute totalitarian force" . In Vermont Hundreds of students at Middlebury college violently protested a speech by conservative author and columnist Charles Murray , while at the university of Chicago , A group of masked protesters tried to stop Corey Lewandowski, a former Trump campaign manager, from speaking . 

Back in Ireland , there are more and more examples every day of speakers being prevented from speaking .  
 
In March 2014 , The Palestine Society at the University of Galway called for a student referendum that would allow the student union to Join the BDS Movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions)  an anti israel boycott movement .The Union decided to hold a referendum on the issue. As Part of the debate Professor Alan Johnson of BICOM (Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre) a UK based  pro Israel organisation was invited to speak to students .
 
As the Professor was about to speak , Joseph Loughnane (people before profit Galway) and other palestine society members stormed the room demanding the professor "get the f–k off our campus” 
 
Below Joe Loughnane (people before profit Galway) screaming at Professor
 
  
In a more recent Incident at Trinity College Dublin , another BDS group  'students for justice palestine' organised a week long anti israel event which saw them block the Israeli Ambassador to Ireland from making a speech at the college .  

In the video below we see around 40 students in Trinity's art block chanting "we are all palestinians" , whats even more worrying is that numerous lecturers from the Department of Sociology and the School of Ecumenics have lent their support, among them Prof David Landy while Ciaran O’Rourke is confident many more will join. 
 
 
  
News of the blockade spread quickly and back in Galway University where the visiting professor was told to "f–k off" , some students were very excited that the Israeli Ambassador had been blocked from speaking and took to facebook to celebrate . 

 

In Ireland , the driving force behind these groups appears to be associated with the ideology of Karl Marx and in particular one political party - people before profit appear to be very influential in the formation of these groups at university level . They also appear to have taken over many of the student unions . 

A Brief look at the Trinity People Before Profit page shows communist and palestinian flags , people giving the fingers  , adverts for Marxism Training Courses and general hostility towards certain views .   

Here are some pictures taken from Trinity PBP facebook page .

quite disgusting really , when you see student groups flying the Hammer and Sickle and laughing about it . Communism isn't much fun for anyone . why dont they go live in North Korea and see how much they like it . would certainly put manners on them , they might actually learn something valuable.
^
that video of Yale Students attacking the Professor is disgusting . Of Course , Yale is the home of Cultural Marxism in the USA . To think that anyone would be rewarded for such behaviour is very worrying indeed .
^
you couldn't make this up .. the anti Jewish guy is head of the Anti Racism Network in Galway
^
Down with this sort of thing . It takes real indoctrination to end up this way

^
disgusting , those students are bullying that professor and for what , because he expressed a different viewpoint to them .

to think that yale would reward such behaviour goes to show how far gone into the gutter the education system has become

I must say he remained remarkably calm throughout , if someone screamed at me like that , like that girl did to him , oh boy , I think it would be a very different video
^
We saw the same behaviour at UCD when the SU President Katie Ascough was impeached because she removed a page (on advice of the Union's Lawyer) advertising abortion services from a book given to new students . it was illegal to advertise abortion and she could have faced criminal convictions and a fine of up to €4,000 if it wasn't removed . yet the lefties who lets be honest more or less run UCD jumped on it and got a petition together to get her impeached

There is no country that boycotting has ever worked on

Iran or russia or north korea  didnt work there only made them more determined in their paths
^
why would you go to a galway united football game with a palestinian flag ??

can someone give mr Loughnane , a galway flag , surely that would be more appropriate yes
^
Thank you for this article , it has opened my eyes a little more as to what is going on at 3rd level

I am very worried by the left , they seem very intolerant of free speech and freedom of expression as is our right under bunreacht na hEireann .

I hope students will open their eyes and start to question the motivations behind their unions .

I think one thing has become clear , the student unions appear to be simply fronts for far left causes to expand their membership and support

Its very worrying , it really is , genuinely am worried by this
