This week, Fox News host Megyn Kelly had a Harvard student on her show to discuss free speech and “safe spaces” on college campuses, but even the seasoned anchor could not hide her disdain for what her guest had to say.
According to Western Journalism, Rachel Huebner is a psychology major and a writer for the Harvard Crimson newspaper, and Kelly had a very interesting reaction to what she said is happening on America’s college campuses.
Huebner told Kelly that she entered college believing that people go to college in order to interact with people of different backgrounds with a variety of unique ideological viewpoints. Unfortunately, Huebner said she has found that the opposite is true, and that she sees a lack of freedom of expression, and viewpoints and beliefs are being stifled.
In a popular editorial she wrote for her newspaper, Huebner described an interaction she had with another student.
“I posed a question about a verse from the Bible,” she wrote. “A Harvard employee in the room immediately interjected, informing me that we were in a safe space and I was thus not permitted to discuss the controversial biblical passage.”
Huebner went on to talk about an incident in which a freshman tried putting an American flag on the wall in his dorm room, but his roommate demanded he take it down because, to him, the flag was offensive and a political statement he wasn’t willing to make.
Kelly couldn’t hide her contempt for this situation, and she rolled her eyes as her crew members laughed around her.
“Can you believe these professors allows this and that these students think they’re going to be able to function in the world?” Kelly asked.
Huebner responded by saying she thinks censorship is perpetrated more by students than teachers.
Welcome to Obama’s America, folks!
