NYU, Global Center
Last Friday, eugenicist bigot Charles Murray came to speak at NYU. Other hate-preachers like Gavin McInnes have also appeared on campus. Inviting bigots to come and share their opinions merely provides them a platform from which to spew hate. But how should student activists respond? Calling for their censorship using language selectively against their free speech sets a dangerous precedent, giving administrators a powerful weapon to use against activist groups on our side. Instead, we must fight hate speech with free speech of our own – via protest and disruption.
Join the NYU Socialists for a discussion on free speech!
We will be reading and discussing this article.
We will also discuss the Socialism conference being held this summer and vote on possible topics for public meetings in the coming weeks.
