SPEECH: Signs of the times

Print Article

Some interesting contrasts occurred to me during last week’s significant anniversaries:

Black-hooded Antifa adherents violently preventing free speech and ideas, contrasted with the image of Tiananmen Square students who were demanding free speech being crushed by communist tanks and machine guns.

College students huddling in their “safe spaces” and labeling as “Nazi” anyone who doesn’t agree with them, contrasted with the thousands of young men who went straight into hell on D-Day to save the world from the very real Nazi threat.

What have we come to?
