Adam Carolla, Ben Shapiro Talk Unfree Speech on Campus in Congressional Hearings

Just saw John Sexton covering this more extensively than the Hollywood Reporter (go figure), so I deleted that other link.

Shapiro offered this brief explanation:

“Free speech is under assault because of a three step argument made by the advocates and justifiers of violence,” Shapiro said. He continued, “The first step is that they say the validity or invalidity of an argument can be judged solely by the ethnic, sexual, racial or cultural identity of the person making the argument.

“The second step is they say that claim those who say otherwise are engaging in what they call verbal violence. And the final step is that they conclude that physical violence is sometimes justified in order to stop such verbal violence.”

Video, including an excerpt of Adam Carolla's remarks (as well as a link to the full video), at the link.


Incidentally, after initially telling Shapiro it could not have him on campus (despite being invited by a conservative group) because of "safety" concerns, Berkeley has finally allowed him a venue, albeit a smaller venue than requested and smaller, I'd imagine, than needed.

I wonder if Berkeley was hoping to avoid being name-checked in Shapiro's testimony today.
