- CNN’s Fareed Zakaria : “American universities these days seem to be committed to every kind of diversity – except intellectual diversity”
RARE MOMENT! CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on liberals great delusion of being the most tolerant when it comes to free speech:
“American universities these days seem to be committed to every kind of diversity – except intellectual diversity,” he continued. “Conservative voices and views are being silenced entirely.”
“It’s strange that this is happening on college campuses that promised to give their undergraduates a liberal education,” Zakaria stated.
“The word liberal in this context has nothing to do with today’s partisan language, but refers instead to the Latin root, pertaining to liberty. And at the heart of liberty in the Western world has been freedom of speech. From the beginning, people understood that this meant protecting and listening to speech with which you disagreed.”
Zakaria cite examples of Mike Pence, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Milo and Ann Coulter, listing them as target of war on free speech by so-called tolerant liberals.
