Harvard writer: Free speech threatens liberalism and must be destroyed

If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps.

Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson.

In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism.

“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” asked Korn in her column.

The column’s subtitle was even more direct: “Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice.”

Korn cited several instances of perspectives that clashed with her own being banned from campus as triumphant examples of the way Harvard should be run. The firing of Subramanian Swamy, a Harvard summer school instructor who was dismissed for his anti-Islamic views, was one such triumph.

She also invoked the academic boycott of Israel — something condemned by Harvard President Drew Faust and numerous other university presidents — as an example of the kind of tactics leftists should defend and use in order to get their way on campus.

Korn did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Her sharp rejection of intellectual freedom — a value enshrined by U.S. law and central to the success of American institutions of higher learning — is common among left-wing activists at elite colleges. Last week, Erin Ching, a sophomore at Swarthmore College, took a similar view when she criticized her university for committing the unforgivable crime of allowing a conservative — Christian thinker Robert George — to speak on campus.

“What really bothered me is, the whole idea is that at a liberal arts college, we need to be hearing a diversity of opinion,” she said, according to the Daily Gazette. “I don’t think we should be tolerating [George’s] conservative views because that dominant culture embeds these deep inequalities in our society.”

George, a Swarthmore alumnus, came to campus to debate Cornell West.

Pro-life students at the University of Alabama were victims of a similar belief that conservative views should not be publicly espoused on campus. (RELATED: U. of Alabama censors pro-life students for ‘offensive’ poster)


And at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, merely emailing an inoffensive .gif of President Barack Obama kicking a door triggers an investigation. The perpetrator was forced to apologize for committing a racial insensitivity. (RELATED: Student forced to apologize for emailing pic of Obama kicking a door, because RACISM)

It's the communist way. You can't really be liberal and be a totalitarian too. It's an oxymoron.

Yep. Liberals don't believe in diversity or tolerance and anyone who thinks they do is a total idiot.

Interesting. Another moonbat. Campus newspapers always have these types. The feed on these look ideas and hang out for four years with fellow kooks, get a degree in philosophy or Sociology. Then the slither off into a career in acedemia or end up running a pottery cooperative somewhere on a mountain or behind a truckstop in New Mexico.

Good for her.

The OP is really quite remarkable. Usually the right wants these professors held accountable for their comments and to not be protected by tenure, and in the case of public schools, free speech. Here, a student is saying, "Let's hold them accountable" and now the right is against it. The article calls it "rejection of intellectual freedom."

You folks are truly amazing.

Oh, I know the point of the article--and that is to slant the actual story in a way that would enrage right wingers. What do you think the point is?

Well, one person in this thread actually tried to address what I said. That person was misinformed, but I do appreciate the effort.

Since when does the right not want professors held accountable for what they say? The sentiment being expressed in this thread is a 180-degree turn from what the right has always complained about--faculty says stupid shit and the school administration can't do anything.

Who do you expect a response from? Which poster in particular has given different responses in the two situations?

You haven't addressed the topic which is about campus liberals and their hatred of diversity and tolerance. That is why nobody is responding to your tangents. If and when you address the article I bet you will start getting feedback in your attempted misdirections

Nobody should be "held accountable" in higher ed. A professor that believes the Holocaust didn't happen is a joke of a historian and likely produces terrible research, and the students will hate him/her as a professor. That professor won't be able to keep a job.

It gets better, too. With colleges and universities naturally avoiding tenure-track positions in favor of part-time adjuncts, there's never been an easier time to "clean out" professors who hold frankly unacademic views. There's no real reason to sacrifice good teachers or outstanding research for what she calls "justice."

This student is full of shit. I'm shocked it came from somebody who goes to Harvard. And as far as I'm concerned, she's just as bad as right-wingers who bitch about higher ed being an ivory tower of uncouth liberalism.

I don't agree with her. My point was the same as what you've written here. I said that the right wingers who bitch just doing the same as she is, but they've been doing it for a lot longer.
