“examines the politically correct world of academia, largely driven by the political left”
Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager joined forces a few years ago to examine the erosion of free speech on college campuses and in society in general. Their film, No Safe Spaces finally opened this weekend.
Carolla has stressed that the message of the film is for everyone.

‘No Safe Spaces’ star Adam Carolla says censorship ‘hurting everyone,’ not a partisan issue
Comedian Adam Carolla said the goal of his new documentary about free speech, “No Safe Spaces,” is to simply “make people aware of how nuts it is out there on campuses and in the media when it comes to censorship based on feelings” rather than facts and information.
“It’s not a left or a right wing thing,” Carolla told Fox News. “We have people across the political spectrum in the film, including [liberal CNN pundit] Van Jones, who says it doesn’t help his team to have young people who can’t defend their beliefs. This is hurting everyone.”
Carolla stars in “No Safe Spaces” alongside conservative radio personality Dennis Prager.
The movie examines the politically correct world of academia, largely driven by the political left. Prager has called the film a “wake-up call” to the American people and claimed free speech is being trampled on to satisfy a political agenda.
Josh Shepherd of The Federalist notes that the subject of the film is playing out in real life for Prager University:
Only hours before the premiere and approximately 700 miles northwest, lawyers for nonprofit group Prager University will face off against tech behemoth Google in a California courtroom located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Their case, Prager University v. Google, contends YouTube has exercised viewpoint discrimination against the nonprofit by restricting more than 200 of its short educational videos…
While the film production has no direct affiliation with PragerU, the efforts represent multiple fronts in the same battle. “No Safe Spaces,” from longtime producer Mark Joseph, serves as a thesis statement of PragerU’s cause. It takes audiences on a road trip to several U.S. universities where campus riots, at times violent, break out against invited conservative speakers.
Shepherd also provides a detailed description of what you’ll see in the movie:
On-scene footage of student protesters cuts to dramatic reenactments of scenes from Prager and Carolla’s lives, short animated vignettes, and interviews with such voices as Canadian professor Jordan Peterson, former Obama administration czar Van Jones, comedian Tim Allen, former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, and Harvard University professor Cornel West. Yet commentators are merely a backdrop, as the movie chronicles several little-known incidents.
