Stanford Putting Co-Founder of ‘Campus Antifascist Network’ in Charge of Free Speech Policy

“Committee on Campus Climate, Community, and Speech”

Stanford University is putting an advocate of Antifa in charge of their campus free speech policy. This is an insult to anyone who values free speech.

Campus Reform reports:

Stanford bestows free speech policy spot on ‘Campus Antifascist Network’ co-founder

Stanford University placed Professor David Palumbo-Liu — who co-founded the “Campus Antifascist Network” in 2017 — in charge of its “Committee on Campus Climate, Community, and Speech.”

According to an email from Stanford University to students, a copy of which Campus Reform obtained, the committee is recruiting students to “help brainstorm and implement changes to help depolarize the campus.”

Students interested in “making expression, debate, and conversation around ideas and knowledge less encumbered and fraught” were encouraged to apply. Palumbo-Liu was listed in the email as the contact for those interested in the speech committee.

As Campus Reform reported in 2017, Palumbo-Liu co-founded the Campus Antifascist Network (CAN) as a “big tent” for “anyone committed to fighting fascism.”

In his 2017 invitation to join the network, Palumbo-Liu wrote that “fascists have used ‘free speech’ as a facade for attacking faculty who have stood in solidarity with students against the threat that these organizations and individuals pose, and as an excuse to march and organize around slogans drawn directly from “blood and soil” rhetoric of Nazi Germany.”

He also called on college students, faculty, and organizations to start Campus Antifascist Network chapters on their campuses.

Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse! This prof has already proven that he is an anti-free-speech fascist, both by criticizing free speech and by affiliating with the Antifa fascist group.

Sounds like they are creating their own version of the UN’s Human Rights Commission.

How sad is this?

Funny how these people call everyone else “fascists” and “Nazis” when it is they who are the real fascists and Nazis.

“…implement changes to help depolarize the campus.”

1) Polarization of what? Leftists exploit fog. Vague language is a tool. The Professor knows this.
2) Polarization implies that there are two sides. Is that not typical of all ideas? Does not free speech bring both sides out into the open? Marxists fear free speech and open ideas.

One can “depolarize the campus” by making it unipolar — only the narrative exists.
