“Free speech has been strangled on college campuses in Canada, America, and Britain… In Canada, according to a free speech index by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms’ annual index which measured the state of free speech at 61 Canadian public universities. The majority of these universities valued diversity of characteristics rather than diversity of thought and belief… From this report we can see that only 21 percent of universities claim to uphold the values of free speech and thought and open enquiry. This as opposed to 69 percent to proclaim the furtherance of diversity as their highest institutional good.” – Henry George, “Free speech on college campuses suppressed across the English-speaking world” – The Post Millennial, October 4th, 2020.

“We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms, and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.” – Adam Casalino, “Trump announces patriotic executive order – instead of liberal 1619 Project, he creates 1776 commission” – The Patriot Journal, September 18th, 2020.

“An Ofsted spokesman commented: ‘The Department for Education’s guidance makes it clear that secondary schools must teach about LGBT issues… Therefore, from next summer, if secondary schools do not teach about all the protected characteristics, they will receive a judgment of ‘requires improvement’ for leadership and management.” – Virginia Hale, “UK to penalise schools which don’t teach children LGBT lessons” – Breitbart, September 20th, 2020.

“Based on its admitted racism, the U.S. Department of Education (‘Department’) is concerned Princeton’s nondiscrimination and equal opportunity assurances in its Program Participation Agreements from at least 2013 to the present may have been false… The Department is further concerned Princeton perhaps knew, or should have known, these assurances were false at the time they were made.” – Extract from Education Department formal records request, quoted by Wes Walker in “LMAO: Princeton’s ‘systemic racism’ self-flagellation could cost them millions” – Clash Daily, September 24th, 2020.

“Two years ago, long after Lynn’s retirement he was formally stripped of his (purely honorific) emeritus status at the University of Ulster where he had created a psychology department from scratch and taught for twenty-three years. This was in response to a students’ union resolution accusing Lynn of advocating ‘racist and sexist’ views. Of course, Lynn never simply ‘advocated views,’ but rather published findings: a distinction apparently lost on both students and university authorities.” – Martin Witkerk, “Richard Lynn’s ‘Memoirs of a dissident psychologist: Life story of a genuine scientist’.” – Unz Review, October 2nd, 2020.

“With increasing audacity, progressive faculty in social sciences and gender studies programs are preaching a groupthink that brings undergrads to a low opinion of themselves and their country. They impugn whole races and genders over privilege and power, promote class warfare as atonement, and give a wink and nod when rioting overtakes propitious moments of social unrest… It isn’t just about teaching layers of progressive pedagogy to young minds, it’s also about cleansing the academy of reactionary viewpoints. One by one, conservative professors are going the way of the dodo. Many are veterans of more tolerant times, now close to retirement or dispirited by insolent student groups and uppity faculty chairs who brush off even moderate orthodoxy with contempt.” – Rick Fuentes, “The University as Madrasah” – American Thinker, September 27th, 2020.
