Allman Interview: National Review's David French Talks Free Speech Under Attack On Campus

It's something we've been talking about on The Allman Report for quite a while, ever since the protests at Mizzou two years ago. The attack on free speech on college campuses across the United States, specifically conservative speech.

It's something we've been talking about on The Allman Report for quite a while, ever since the protests at Mizzou two years ago. The attack on free speech on college campuses across the United States, specifically conservative speech.

David French, Senior Fellow with the National Review Institute was in St. Louis Wednesday to talk about that on the campus of Washington University. First, he stopped by The Allman Report to talk about the culture wars on college campuses. French has been writing about the culture wars for some time now, and he says it can be traced back to the 1960's.

Back then, it was a fringe movement focused on stifling conservative thought and speech in favor of left-wing ideology. French says things have escalated in recent years to the point of even the most reasonable voices being shouted down.

French pointed out that recently the ACLU was blocked from a campus event at the College of William & Mary by 'Black Lives Matter' protesters who chanted, "by chanting "liberalism is white supremacy" and "ACLU, you protect Hitler too!" for a full hour.

French tells The Allman Report that we have now reached a point where opponents are simply shouted down instead of being allowed to debate. He calls for financial incentives for universities to promote more free speech from opposing points of view.
