*Originally published July 2019* There’s a reason everybody wants to come to America. You certainly know why, so there’s no need to go down the list. However, the next generation of leaders doesn’t understand why America is great. In fact, most of them in this clip below name another country as better than the U.S. It’s pretty sad. From The Blaze:
The majority of students conceded that Sweden, Norway, Canada, and Iceland were the best countries in the world.
Barack Obama’s legacy will continue to haunt the nation for a good while to come.
This will be the case until Obamacare is repealed and replaced, and until former Obama administration aides are no longer saying silly things in defense of quite arguably the worst president America has ever seen.
Check out how a former Obama admin appointee who became a college president feels about free speech on campus…
From The Blaze:
David R. Harris — president of Union College in New York and an appointee in the administration of former President Barack Obama — stated in an Inside Higher Ed essay last week, “I oppose free speech on college campuses.”
From the essay, Harris writes:
Free speech, in its purest form, is an exercise in what is achieved when a person yells a view and then leaves, after which someone with an opposing perspective does the same. The speakers do not grow as a result of the experience, and the audience has no opportunity to probe the opposing points of view. Such an exercise is guaranteed by the Constitution, and I wholeheartedly support the exercise of free speech in public spaces.
On campuses, however, we must strive for something more than free speech. Our mission requires that we seek what I refer to as constructive engagement. It is not enough for individuals to speak freely. We must also find myriad ways to put a range of views into conversation with one another. It is what we do in classrooms every day. It is what we do on debate teams. It is what happens across every campus, far more than critics appreciate. It is what happens in the lives of college students much more frequently than in the lives of most adults, in part because college campuses and social networks tend to be more diverse than “real world” neighborhoods and social clubs.
This sounds like exactly what someone from the Obama administration would say.
