Freedom of speech can now be declared dead. We now know it starts well before college. The only positive note is that half of the students remained after being dismissed by the administrator. To dare talk about Capitalism now gets one of the jackboots to shut you up.
In front of a capacity crowd of more than 450 students, an Otay Ranch High School administrator dismissed students from conservative powerhouse Ben Shapiro’s speech, which was organized by the school’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter and sponsored by Young America’s Foundation, after telling the audience Shapiro’s conservative beliefs “crossed a line.”
The administrator’s actions were caught on camera and can be seen at the :44 second mark in the video below.
After Shapiro explained the power of America’s free market system, noting it could lift anybody out of poverty if they’re able to manage their money, an administrator seized the microphone from a student during the Q&A and said he was going to have to “dismiss the students” because Shapiro had “crossed a line.”
Shapiro told Young America’s Foundation, “”The left has taken over the entire educational infrastructure, and this is the proof: the silencing of facts in order to avoid hurting the feelings of leftist students. No wonder we’re churning out new generations of Americans entirely unprepared for the real world, and entirely unaware of basic principles of Western civilization. Thanks to the brave students at Otay Ranch High School who stood up and were counted. And shame on the administration for coddling the precious butterflies by ‘protecting’ them from reality.”
