Wait, there’s more:

This Yale Ph.D (not kidding) also compares Dr. Ben Carson to a Holocaust Denier, because he says transgender people are really “men and women in disguise” – which means Carson does not treat them as “fully human.”

Via College Fix.

Freedom of speech must take a backseat to freedom from offense because the Holocaust happened.

That’s the nutshell argument by a New York University vice provost in favor of universities blocking students and faculty from inviting controversial speakers.

Ulrich Baer, who oversees faculty, arts, humanities and diversity at the elite Manhattan college, writes in The New York Times that “personal experience and testimony” can be more important than “the primacy of argument,” as evidenced by the testimony of Holocaust survivors.

And who is more like Holocaust survivors than college students? he asks:

Widespread caricatures of students as overly sensitive, vulnerable and entitled ‘snowflakes’ fail to acknowledge the philosophical work that was carried out, especially in the 1980s and ’90s, to legitimate experience – especially traumatic experience – which had been dismissed for decades as unreliable, untrustworthy and inaccessible to understanding….

You can read his entire NYT column here, but caution: Trying to following his “logic” may induce a migraine.

And, a welcome “palate-cleanser” from Tammy:

    “This is one of those views which are so absurd that only very learned men could possibly adopt them.” (Variants of this quote have been attributed to George Orwell and Bertrand Russell.)

  2. MACVEL says:

    The argument makes perfect sense if your mission is to make the students as stupid as possible, in order to create a mob.

    Yikes! What an article. Pretty sure I won’t be “Thanking” Yusra Khogali. She’s the Canadian Black Lives Matter leader who called White People “Subhuman” and suggested they be “Wiped out.” Guess I’m just too sensitive.
