Just when I thought these college tours were winding down, it turns out that Jared Taylor is going to be speaking at the University of Alabama on April 19th:
“University of Alabama President Stuart Bell is encouraging students not to attend an event featuring a speaker who has been called a white nationalist.
Bell issued a statement Thursday, saying a registered student organization has invited a speaker “who has been identified as a white nationalist” to speak at an event in mid-April. He did not name the group or speaker, but the group Students For America First has advertised an April 19 event featuring Jared Taylor, the editor of the online “American Renaissance” website. The topic advertised on the flyer is “Diversity: Is it Good For America?”
“This ideology is counter to our institutional values,” Bell said in the statement. “The University of Alabama did not invite this individual. UA stands for the equality of all people.” …”
Normally, I would go to this since it is so close to home. Unfortunately, I’m going to be traveling out of state though that weekend to attend a wedding.
The issues that were raised in the now defunct free speech movement haven’t gone away. We’re still dealing with Antifa political violence. We’re still dealing with campus crybabies. We’re still dealing with police departments that are standing down. If we retreat from the public sphere, these problems aren’t going to get any better and will likely get worse without opposition.
Note: I would love to hear Jared Taylor’s thoughts on the New York Times article which basically admitted he has been right about race for over 20 years now.
