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.

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.

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

The talk about democracy and democratic ideals when they want access to power. Once they get there, they don't want those things anymore. They shut them down.

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?

I am not going to defend this women's wish to curb freedom of speech even in a private institution. You all do defend a private operation to control the intent of discourse and action. It is just in the public forum one is insured the freedom of speech. She was asking if this private institution had goals of encouraging diversity and opposes racism then it does have a responsibility to facilitate its goals just like all private endeavors.

I think that it is a secondary goal to education and a liberal exposure to ideas in general.
