What is the biggest crisis facing the world today? Is it terrorism, global warming, the refugee crisis, or a failing economy? In this week’s boralogue, John shows that the biggest crisis is the threat to freedom of speech. Global warming dissenters are summarily dismissed and shunned from the scientific community. Those who don’t believe in the current PC narrative on college campuses are told to shut up – in the name of tolerance, of course. Fortunately, PC-think is beginning to unravel as the stupidity of its assertions is becoming ever more obvious.
How did we get to the point where free speech is under attack? David Horowitz (www.horowitzfreedomcenter.org), Founder and President of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, reviews the history of political correctness and the battle of ideas, asserting that the issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution. The goal of progressives is to destroy America and the Constitution. It’s up to us to speak out before this becomes a reality.
Jewish students on college campuses are experiencing a very real politically correct backlash. Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (www.amchainitiative.org), Lecturer at UC Santa Cruz and Director at the AMCHA Initiative, examines how those opposing the BDS movement on campuses are being physically threatened and silenced. They are finding it is not a level playing field for protected speech among different campus groups. The new anti-Semitism looks a lot like the old as the assault on free speech continues.
Where does the church stand? Aubrey Shines (www.glorytoglory.org), Founder of Glory to Glory Ministries, asserts that churches should stand at the forefront of political activism and speak out for truth when politically correct narratives stand against it. God’s Word is a call to action and the Truth shall lead the way.
