Tucker takes on a pro-Antifa professor over free speech and violence of the Left and whether political violence is justified #Tucker
Tucker Carlson gave a lecture of his own to an Antifa activist professor from John Jay College of Criminal Justice after they spoke about free speech and political violence. Antifa and far left groups had been around and headlining a lot of news and social media for their aggressive and violent behavior towards conservatives and alt-right gatherings, most notably the speech of Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley this year.
Professor Mike Isaacson, who is also the founder of the Smash Racism D.C., went on to contend that the activists of the movement have the right to defend themselves from violence with violence. At this point, Carlson started to lay down the law on him, by stating that this is about blurring the lines since what Isaacson was implying was not only that those groups would have a right to conduct violent acts in self-defence against someone raising a hand at them, but also if they had a different outlook or beliefs.
“You’re conflating violence with ideas. If I have not raised my hand to strike you, you have no right to strike me.”
Carlson went on with asking Isaacson if he teaches his students that the First Amendment does not apply to those who oppose their beliefs.
“I teach them to think critically, and that’s why I’m very open about my anti-fascism and my anarchism,” Isaacson stated. He also added he held his students to the same standards, no matter if they were alt-right members of Trump supporters.
NYPD’s largest police union found out after the interview, that a month back the professor had tweeted how he was “privileged” to “teach future dead cops” at John Jay College
If this does not call for an immediate termination of this “professor” from his job, we do not know what is.
Police officers risk their lives to keep our families safe. They’re braver men and women than almost all of us, period. This professor, a self-proclaimed antifa member, is a sickening example of a…
