Amherst Uprising

We’ve actually come to a point where students on an American college campus are protesting free speech. It’s like we’re suddenly in Mao’s China.

Amherst Students Protest ‘Free Speech,’ Demand ‘Training’ for Offenders

Students protesting at Amherst College have issued a list of demands to administrators that includes making them apologize for signs that lament the death of free speech.

A group calling themselves the Amherst Uprising listed 11 demands they want enacted by next Wednesday. Among them is a demand that President Biddy Martin issue a statement saying that Amherst does “not tolerate the actions of student(s) who posted the ‘All Lives Matter’ posters, and the ‘Free Speech’ posters.”

The latter posters called the principle of free speech the “true victim” of the protests at the University of Missouri.

Going further, the students demand the people behind “free speech” fliers be required to go through a disciplinary process as well as “extensive training for racial and cultural competency.”

These people are totalitarian thugs. Plain and simple.
