    The Ongoing Cultural Purge — Livestream, Sunday, June 28, 8 p.m. Eastern

    A chance to discuss what is unfolding before our very eyes: The tearing down of civil society, the mindless trashing of history, the repulsive rhetoric and conduct, the purge of wrongthinkers in academia and the workplace.

    Listen to this article

    On Sunday, June 28, at 8 p.m. Eastern, we will be holding our fourth online virtual event: The Ongoing Cultural Purge.

    I will speak for “a while” about many of the things we have been witnessing: the tearing down of civil society, the mindless trashing of history, the repulsive rhetoric and conduct, the purge of wrongthinkers in academia and the workplace. Then we will turn to Q&A.

    This is a livestream via Facebook (and possibly YouTube also), and will be live on our website as well. You will be able to ask questions either throught the Facebook ‘chat’ feature or in the comment section. You also can submit questions in advance in the comment section to this post.

    We will share the Facebook link via the newsletter on Sunday (sign up here), and you also can come to the website.

    Some things to think about between now and then.

      He’s mostly correct, but for some reasons he claims that
      “we willingly handed over the principles of free speech and expression to right wing bigots”?

      Seriously? When did that happen? The rant is otherwise good but this current imposition of fascism is entirely a Left Wing creation. We on the right welcome free speech. We are the solution to this cancel culture madness which is based on lies and hysteria.

      Professor Jacobson is right. Black Lives Matter is based on a false narrative. Crime statistics show that Blacks kill twice as many Whites as vice versa. BLM is marxist, bigoted and supremacist.

      The problems in the black community are not because of systemic racism. They are self imposed and are a result of the breakdown of the black family caused by well-intentioned welfare policies. The economic postion of Asian-Americans in America completely rebuts the allegation of systemic racism. Success comes from hard work. Ethnic background is not a barrier to hard work. Acceptance of the false narrative of systemic racism is contributing to the lack of economic progress for blacks.

      The situation is so dire that only Black Conservatives can prevent this continuing descent into darkness.

    Question, or an area I would like mentioned during the webinar. Not sure if this is more of a Leslie question, or Prof. Jacobson, or both.

    4 Years Ago Trump Rally Attendees were assaulted in San Jose CA.

    Lawsuit was filed. It just got settled with the city. Due to immunity all they got was an apology and some training for the police.

    Nobody has been charged.

    Great way to purge wrong think! You are endangering yourself if you attend a Trump Rally in a Blue Area. Orange County had similar issues, at least that was only cars being vandalized.

    Questions for Professor Jacobsen – Since it is clear that conservative faculty are being systematically eliminated from our universities based on their political beliefs/affiliation, what can be done to afford them legal protection? Several states have laws prohibiting such discrimination, but I never hear of lawsuits brought by academics using such laws. Why is that?

    On the federal level, could Title VII be amended to include political belief/affiliation as a protected class? Could we perhaps find support for such amendment in equal protection principles, and recognition that being free from such discrimination is a fundamental human right, as reflected not only by state laws prohibiting it, but by federal immigration law offering foreigners asylum based on such human rights?
