Ben Shapiro and Adam Carolla Tell Congress the Truth About Free Speech

On Thursday, the House Oversight Committee held a hearing on the “Challenges to Freedom of Speech on College Campuses.”

Several witnesses were called to testify, including Ben Shapiro, editor of The Daily Wire and contributor to National Review. Watch him deconstruct and dismantle the ideology of the campus Left in less than five minutes.

If we want to protect free speech on campus, we need to follow Carolla’s advice and establish order. This means enforcing the laws and college regulations that already exist, and punishing campus radicals when they suppress free speech. They are free to protest, of course, but they cross a line when they prevent others from speaking.

Claremont McKenna did just that when it suspended students who shut down a speech by Heather Mac Donald. More schools should follow Claremont’s example, listen to Shapiro and Carolla, and defend the idea of the university.
