Brian Kilmeade interviewed Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz this morning on Fox and Friends, where they discussed the recent trend of rampant demands for “safe spaces” and political correctness around college campuses.
Dershowitz lamented how university students have become “afraid of ideas” and have taken on a low tolerance for viewpoints that stand opposite to their own. “They want to be kept safe from ideas that they may disagree with, and if they want to be safe from ideas, there are better places to be than college and university campuses,” the professor said.
Dershowitz also noted that students tend to display selective attitudes for which ideas are tolerated enough to have “safe spaces,” and that more attention should go towards making spaces safe on a physical level instead.
“I know when I speak on college campuses in favor of Israel, I need armed guards protecting me from radical leftist students who would use physical intimidation,” Dershowicz said. “They won’t give me a safe space. They won’t give pro-Israel students a safe space, they won’t give Christian students a safe space.”
