OHIO STATE STUDENT GROUP: BEN SHAPIRO'S WORDS CAN 'THREATEN' 'MENTAL SAFETY'

A student group at Ohio State University (OSU) sent a warning to its members prior to a Tuesday by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

The Student Advisory Council of the Morrill Scholars Program at OSU sent an email in order to create “awareness around this event in preparation for the impact that his words, beliefs, and followers may have on our community.” The email specifically targeted Young America’s Foundation (YAF) and Shapiro, who is editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, and claims that many of his views are “misogynist,” “racist,” and “transphobic.”

A member of the Morrill Scholars Program confirmed the existence of the email to Campus Reform on Wednesday.

“For instance, Shapiro has argued that feminism has created what would be called ‘rape culture’ because its elimination of traditional gender roles,” the email stated. “Shapiro has said that income inequality (specifically in the African American community) has ‘nothing to do with race, and everything to do with culture.’”

The Student Advisory Council of the Morrill Scholars Program contended that Shapiro’s presence is unsafe for the mental well-being of students on campus.

“Shapiro’s rhetoric has the potential to threaten the emotional and mental safety of much of the campus community,” the email stated. “If you do not feel comfortable around a climate that will be created by Ben Shapiro’s presence, we encourage you to seek a safe environment for yourself. Knowing the hostile environment that can result from these kinds of events, we encourage you to seek an inclusive environment and reach out to talk with someone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but what kind of absolute, colossal bit of codswallop this is!!

IF, as a college student, you cannot verbally rebut, when you think that an idea or attitude is incorrect, and have the facts of your argument at your fingertips, then I am sorry for you, because your college education has been an utter, complete waste of time.

The "Real World" into which you will graduate, has no mercy on people who are incapable of dealing with an argument.

This world It is hard, fast, and will eat you up, and spit you out, if you are pathologically incapable of taking care of yourself, and not turning into a spineless plate of jello, every time you hear something that is contrary to your values. Because you will hear that... a lot.

So, Ohio State University students, life's tough; get a helmet!. And please, go see this lecture, and see if this man is really that terrifying, or ... if, perhaps, "influencers" on campus, really don't want you to go, not because they are " terrified" by his language, but that perhaps you will learn something that may well be contrary to currently held beliefs...and be the truth.

And we now have a follow-up to this story: SHOCK VIDEO: UNHINGED PROTESTERS TRY TO SHUT DOWN BEN SHAPIRO AT OHIO STATE

Antifa labels Jewish conservative a Nazi fascist.

This is an Orwellian moment, writ large; universities no longer teach, or encourage independent, critical thinking. Even though I might abhor what someone might say, I would defend their right to say it.

I thought that this was part of the core principals of the American democratic Republic.

But fast forward to this point in the 21st century, and we find that they are teaching identity politics, and demanding that students hate everyone they, and "the influencers" hate; it is just that simple.
