Over the past few months, America’s college campuses have been rocked by politically-correct racial protests.
But now, Yale University–one of the top schools in America–is taking it one step further. It’s students are actively calling to repeal the First Amendment right, all in the name of political correctness.
Political satirist Ami Horowitz went to see just how far Yale students would actually go–and visited campus armed with a fake petition to repeal the First Amendment.
“What we’re calling for is a petition to repeal the First Amendment,” Horowitz told students, on camera. He referenced all parts of the First Amendment: the freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, and, ironically, the freedom of petition.
“I think this is fantastic,” said one signer. “I absolutely agree.”
“I appreciate what you’re trying to do,” said another student, as he signed the petition.
“I think the Constitution should be one big safe space,” said Horowitz, taking a favorite talking point of college protestors. The students he was talking to nodded in approval, as they signed the petition.
“Excellent. Love it,” said another.
“Hurting people’s feelings should not be protected speech,” told Horowitz to another student–who quickly agreed with him.
“You shouldn’t be exposed to things you don’t want to hear,” said Horowitz to yet another student–who also agreed with him too.
Overall, Horowitz’s collected 50 signatures from Yale students in less than an hour–roughly one signature per minute. So it’s clear that there was quite a bit of support for his phony “cause.”
Yale is one of the top universities in the nation–and has been rocked by protests, after students took offense with a professor suggesting that the administration should not ban “offensive” Halloween costumes.
And it’s clear that some of the best and brightest future leaders in America would rather not be offended than recognize fundamental rights.
