The Queen's University Talk: The Rising Tide of Compelled Speech

About :

I was invited to Queen's University March 5 to give the inaugural lecture/discussion of the Liberty Lecture series, funded by Faculty of Law alumnus, Gregory Piasetzki (LLB 1980).

Dr. Bruce Pardy (https://law.queensu.ca/faculty-research/faculty-directory/pardy) and I discussed the increasingly frequent requirements for compelled speech that characterize the Canadian sociopolitical landscape.

The entire event was, in a word, surreal. Initial controversy over its acceptability rose to the point where the Dean of the Law School William Flanagan and Principal of Queen’s Daniel Woolf wrote missives in defence of free speech (the former: http://bit.ly/2EQJDm3; the latter: http://bit.ly/2tJB8VB). The Queen's University "Human Rights Office" posted a link to the Levana Gender Advocacy Centre and Education on Queer Issues Project "active support" efforts during this event at their “Trans-Positive and People of Colour Positive Chill-In” in Dunning Hall, room 11, where there was coloring pages, music, food, and discussion.

The 900 or so people who attended (who comported themselves admirably and thoughtfully throughout) were subject to a continual 90-minute barrage of noise generated by the protestors, who leaped up on the stained glass windows lining the hall and banged continually on them, breaking one. Inside, we could see shadowy figures dimly outlined through the colored glass. The outside doors were barricaded. One protestor was caught on film saying "Lock them in and burn it down." The din was substantial and ominous, although it is much attenuated in this video, due to the nature of the microphones used, which were designed to pick up speech close at hand.

The protestor who broke the window was arrested, but not before she bit a policeman, attempted to kick the back window out of a police cruiser, and was found to be in possession of a garrotte, a particularly brutal weapon with no defensive utility whatsoever (http://bit.ly/2HoTDAu). The man who cursed so profoundly and eloquently near the beginning of the lecture accosted me and my crew after the talk, and yelled and cursed and threatened at close quarters during our 200-yard walk from the venue to the parkade.

No one who was at this event will forget it.

Not good. Not good at all.

I am so happy that my daughter, a graduate of Queens, is back here in Japan.... in a normal country and not in Canada the land of snowflakery. She was told in Queens not to mention "dice" in a chemistry or physics class when talking about probabilities: it could offend Muslims!

Being a physicist, I told her: tell them that according to the laws of Quantum Mechanics, if God exists, he is a gambling degenerate.

Moreover she was labelled a dangerous rightist for stating her opposition to multiculturalism as she simply said: "I did not come to Canada to stay Japanese but to become Canadian". That is now a controversial statement.

The entire place is insane.

Informed respectfull dialogue, giving people with different views the chance to explain them. Dialogue. Listening and at least trying to understand where the other is coming from. To those protesters (who call themselves students but forgot what that word means) this is too much to ask. They're not even willing to listen, to try and understand, to be respectful. They clearly reject dialogue. No good can come from such people. They are a threat to our society and our values, they are opponents of freedom of speech, opponents of freedom. Our freedom. Society should deal with these tools of totalitarian ideologue before it's too late.

The people against free speech should be recognized and recorded and pass a law that they alone should lose their freedom of speech not all of America or all of Canada.They should get exactly what they are marching for,taking away rights.

'f*ck white supremacy'....??????....these idiots must have taken a wrong turn or something as I'm not sure they were protesting (and I use that description loosely) the correct event.

In any case Dr's Peterson, Pardy and the audience all showed commendable tolerance, patience and dignity in the face of the childish antics of this apparently confused and quite possibly lost (both in the metaphorical sense and in terms of their physical location) hord.

What an excellent question that last fellow posed. Why are the horrors of Fascism vilified and the horrors of Communism not? Do people really think that a variant of Communism would be successful? The path to hell is paved with good intentions.

What the first SJW yelled from the balcony is really strange. He said there is no such thing as compelled speech. He really doesn’t have an idea what he’s supporting.

"no freedom for hate speech"? So they shout that out and seem OK with their own speech such as: "Lock them in and burn it down." Did Jordan Peterson ever say that?

The new "tyrant" are those who disrupt. THEY are the new Hitlers, the new Lenins...the new authoritarian dictators. A tantrum of a two year old on the floor...an accurate assessment.

What is happening to our youth? They are showing signs of absolutism. I am ashamed of those who behave like uncivilized societies when expressing their point of view. It is not acceptable to create anarchy and destruction in order to voice your opinion.

Leftism is an ideological "ism" every bit as dangerous, inherently evil as Fascism, Communism, Islamist Fundamentalism, Cultism, in fact it is exactly the same.

The power of political indoctrination is as powerful as a religious indoctrination, if not more, which are equal and parallel in it's potency and effectiveness, as being witnessed by the actions of leftist ideologue radical extremists that are absolutely intolerant of civil debate / civil discourse, free speech (except for them), etc, by anyone who does not support, comport, acquiesce and or surrender to their demands. They are in every sense of the word and term- fascist.

"Liberal fascism (cultism) is a fascism with narcissistic appeal, universally adaptable to all people who will submit, and therefore is more dangerous than any fascism before, as it will find fewer opponents and is already accepted by millions world wide."

"Nonconformists will be deemed intolerant, and will not be tolerated."

as "hate speach" is labelled anything that you can not understand from this lecture :D Peterson actualy made a speach of love for humanity about whom he wants high aspirations, intelectual development and morality. They are angry bc he lectured about that seeking happiness is not the only way, seeking truth and development is better way. Seeking happiness is speedy and stupid way. They seem to think that happiness is the ultimate goal - well, if you seek that you can get this by buying ticket to Hawai and being lazy on the beach under a palm, so there is no need for you being noisy here :)

Has anyone ever identified any of these protesters? Bet anyone 1000$ they're not productive, they're not creative, they're not helpful, they aren't even remotely clever. They're working minimum wage barista jobs and barely hanging on to employment. That attitude gets you absolutely nowhere in the real world.

There's only one reason leftist sociopaths are against freedom of speech, they're ideas are wrong, immoral and an unlawful plot to control and enslave others and they don't want people to know it.
