Ben Shapiro: Conservative Speakers Aren’t Safe on Some Campuses

College used to be a neat place where you could specialize in the field you wanted to work and explore the many new options. It has quickly turned into a liberal indoctrination lab where the students are merely lab rats and the professors are mad scientists.

Emphasis on the “mad” tidbit.

Ben Shapiro, author and Conservative speaker from the Daily Wire was interviewed on “Fox & Friends.” He claims that there are college campuses in which it is unsafe for a Conservative speaker to visit.

Fox Insider reports:

In February 2016, Shapiro’s scheduled appearance at California State University, Los Angeles triggered a near-riot. Shapiro said agitators were “bused in” to protest the event and he had to be escorted by police away from the scene after speaking.

Other conservative speakers have generated similar angry responses from students on California college campuses, including Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos.

Shapiro is set to testify today at a House hearing on free speech on college campuses. He said this morning that most college campuses are safe, but the violent protests are becoming more common.

He said he’d like to see federal funding for colleges linked to their willingness to enforce the law and go after violent protesters to ensure the First Amendment rights of speakers.

Shapiro said, “Very often, the universities use that as an excuse to prevent conservatives from speaking on campus. They don’t actually do anything about the crime that’s being committed,” he continued,, “we’re going to see a complete shutdown of free speech on campuses over time.”
