This week will be remembered with a series of event that embarrassed some of the best-known universities in North America. It started with the Milo Yiannopoulos’ attempt to speak at the University of California at Berkeley, which was cancelled after violent anarchists trashed businesses and public buildings. That was followed by an assault on Gavin McInnes’ event at NYU.
Today, it was the University of Toronto’s turn to show that psychopathic lefties have the upper hand when deciding who can speak. An event, which included the media personality and founder of The Rebel Media Ezra Levant, was stormed by a deranged crowd, which managed to interrupt it.
It happened at the Toronto Action Forum, organized by GenerationScrewed.ca – a student organization promoting free speech and political activism. Levant was the last one of a few distinguished speakers who spoke on various issues regarding current politics, economics and free speech. Prof. Jordan Peterson, Prof. Janice Fiamengo, Anthony Furey, and several economists.
Even though the organizers received a few threats via Facebook, the forum started and proceeded smoothly. It was sold out completely and the participants enjoyed the discussion panels.
Things changed drastically after Ezra Levant arrived at about 5 p.m. As soon as he took the microphone, we heard screams from the hallway. It turned out that a crowd of “social justice warriors” stormed the building and occupied the hallway, blocking both main exits.
We were trapped for a while and nobody was allowed to exit. Obviously, the campus security couldn’t handle those savages and we had to wait for the police. Then, one of the invaders pulled the fire alarm. Ezra was determined to continue his presentation, but the police came in urging everybody to leave. They promised that as soon as the Fire Marshall determined that there is no fire, we will be allowed back in.
We left the building and Ezra continued his speech without microphone. The red fascists kept screaming and shouting on the other side, but were unable to do any damage. Unlike the US, in Toronto, the police took them seriously – over 20 officers showed up and kept them under control.
While the police acted properly and kept the order, the university administration didn’t miss the chance to show its cowardice. While Ezra was speaking, one of the organizers approached Ezra and said that the administration cancelled the event and we had to disperse. Once again, censorship by the vile and violent lefties was enforced with the help of one of the major Canadian universities.
