Ivy atrocity cage fight: Yale petition to repeal First Amendment vs. Harvard’s PC placemats

December 17, 2015

From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

Harvard’s misspelled table decor for Christmas dinner

I’m voting for the placemats myself, but the  “pickled-brained morons” (to quote Advice Goddess Amy Alkon) at Yale who signed up to abolish their constitutional right to free speech are worth a few chuckles as well. For one thing, the Yalies didn’t seem to realize that the petition was actually an Ali G–style hoax in which satirist Ami Horowitz videoed them carefully explaining why it was important to get rid of the First Amendment:

“In voice-over narration, Horowitz explains ‘Just as a reminder, the First Amendment protects the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press — and oh yeah, freedom of petition.’

“A male student tells Horowitz in the video ‘I think this is fantastic. I absolutely agree.’

“‘Excellent. Love it,’ another woman says in the clip.

“In one exchange with a student, Horowitz says ”Cause I think it’s a living, breathing document, the Constitution, it was literally not made in stone.

“‘And the guys who wrote it – they were slave owners.

‘What do they know about how we live today?

“‘So we want to change it.’…”
