Devotion to free speech should fight ignorance, not enshrine it [Global Jewish Voice]

Some consider Nick Griffin a racist, some a hero.

The British National Pary Chairman was (almost) invited to debate the death penalty at Nottingham University. If you haven’t heard anything about the backlash, check out Rebecca Schapira’s latest article for the Global Jewish Voice:

Education Should Battle Ignorance at University

By Rebecca Schapira in Nottingham

Last week I was reminded of the ignorance and racism that exists in our society when I encountered this thought process:

Inviting the renowned racist and British National Party leader Nick Griffin to speak is the best way to improve campus relations, enshrine universities with values of tolerance and create an opportunity to learn from intense debate.

[...]

Perhaps Griffin is an authority on speaking about the death penalty, quite frankly I have no idea. But it wouldn’t change my position. I do not believe Nick Griffin should be allowed to speak on university campuses based on the hateful views he holds.

Make no mistake, Griffin is the number one symbol for racism and divisiveness in Britain today.  I cannot get past how anyone would value the opinions of such a man.

[...]

University campuses are different from other areas in civil political life. They are supposed to guarantee the safety of all of their students to study without intimidation or fear. I take a personal disgust from those who use the free speech argument to please their twisted intellectual curiosities, their ignorance fueling those who flirt with ideas of fascism under a guise of liberalism.

    Ha,there`s no free speech if you oppose white genocide:

    Africa for the Africans,Asia for the Asians,white countries for EVERYBODY!

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realise I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist.What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white.

    The legacy of white colonialism sort of belies the assertion that Africa has just been for the Africans. It was until white people sliced it up and exported black people like property.
    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
    Yeah, that kind of already happened. We generally recognize it for what it was – violent subjugation as part of a philosophy of white racial supremacy.
    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
    I’m sorry, genocide? Where on earth does this claim from? When was the last time white people were rounded up and systematically executed because of the color of their skin?
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white.
    So then, if the opposite of being racist (anti-racist) is the same thing as the opposite of being white (anti-white), you’d agree that being white is the same as being racist? If their opposites are equal, they must be equal themselves! By your logic (or lack thereof), anyway.
