Filmmaker Reveals The One Event That Ended Free Speech On College Campuses

In just two generations, college campuses went from being the mecca of free speech to being a war zone where liberal social justice warriors silence — and even physically assault — conservative speakers and other students who defy their doctrine.

A lot of people have been left scratching their heads, wondering how college culture became taken over by snowflakes.

Documentary filmmaker Rob Montz appeared on Adam Carolla’s podcast to talk about his new project SilenceU on Friday to try and pinpoint the exact moment free speech really died at college campuses.

“The first anecdote happened in 2013, which is when New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly came to Brown University and was basically shouted down,” Montz said. “I’ve talked to a lot of people that have been following this issue, for them, they mark that specific incident as the turning point for campus culture generally.”

According to the Brown Daily Herald, the protestors were outraged by Kelly’s support for ‘Stop-and-Frisk’ because they believed it profiled against black and Hispanic men.

“When Kelly himself took the stage, protesters’ boos mixed with applause. As soon as he began to speak, many protesters stood with their fists in the air and began shouting in unison, after which neither Kelly nor Vice President for Campus Life and Student Services Margaret Klawunn and Vice President for Public Affairs and University Relations Marisa Quinn — two administrators present — could regain control of the auditorium,” the Brown Daily Herald stated.

With administrators unable to restore order, eject the protestors, and punish those responsible for silencing a conservative speaker, the mob of social justice warriors knew they had won and could win in the future.

“In 2013, just a couple of years ago, it’s when it turns,” Montz continued. “These schools had always been overwhelmingly liberal but to the point where they reject the basic norms of civil discourse.”

So this culture that riots at the drop of a hat or when Milo Yiannopoulos comes to campus is just under four years old.
