Why Students Should Let Conservatives Speak

Căn hộ cao cấp Vinhomes D' Capitale Trần Duy Hưng

College students often protest conservatives speakers coming to their campus. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, discuss how students should handle speakers they don’t like coming to campus. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/

“President Trump is sometimes criticized for what his critics say is a lack of support for the First Amendment based on his frequent attacks on the mainstream media.

But it appears that he’s not the only American who thinks there’s no place for viewpoints that a listener finds offensive. Some millennials — the largest demographic in the country — do not seem to be a big fan of the fact that the First Amendment protects hate speech, especially millennials in college.

Conservative students at the University of California at Berkeley planned “Free Speech Week” in part to protest liberal students’ ongoing efforts to silence conservative voices that they believe are harmful to students, conversations and policymaking.

The Berkeley Patriot, a student group, invited Milo Yiannopoulos, who once said “feminism is cancer,” to speak on campus, a decision that was widely denounced by liberals on campus and beyond. Group member Pranav Jandhyala said next week’s guests include conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who previously said “I’m a Christian first, and a mean-spirited, bigoted conservative second,” and former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who used a homophobic slur to refer to women attending northeastern women’s colleges.”

    Why don't we just let free market economics dictate who speaks at colleges? The amount of money speakers get should be proportional to the amount of people that attend. If speakers don't think they can turn a profit by speaking at a college, they will just naturally go to other colleges where they think they can be more successful. If a speaker doesn't care about profits and still wants to get their message across, I say, let them speak, provided that the venue is not occupied by another event.

    Book them to speak and if people don't want to hear what they have to say then they shouldn't attend. If they are speaking to empty venues they will not be interested — there is nothing in it for them if it isn't going to create a media frenzy and get their names in the papers and in the news. So, after a time or two they will stop booking speaking engagements that do not bring them any recognition. It's not ideal but protesting them and/or cancelling their speech just fuels the fire. It makes them that much more determined to turn the objection to their speech into…wait for it, a media spectacle that gets their names in the papers and in the news. Stop feeding the trolls.
