Carey Linde Salutes Universities and Libraries as Last Bastion of Free Speech


VANCOUVER, Oct. 31, 2019 /CNW/ - Vancouver lawyer Carey Linde accuses gender identity social justice warriors of labeling any statement  they disagree with as offensive "hate speech" and the author as irredeemably "transphobic." He argues their collective obsession to have their sensitivities protected from so called "hate speech" more than justifies denying the author any platform to speak, and attack anyone providing the platform.

Linde claims this is the ideology that fuels the demonstrations on the last bastions of public free speech: libraries and universities. He sent emails to librarian Vickery Bowles of the Toronto Public Library and the president of Simon Fraser University congratulating them for being the remaining public institutions resisting the onslaught to stifle freedom of speech. He regards today's insidious threat to free speech to be greater than it was during his university years in the Free Speech Movement of the late 1960s.

Linde said he expects an intentionally disruptive demonstration similar to the Oct 29th at the Toronto Public Library to confront the same feminist speakers at the SFU campus downtown Vancouver Nov 2 evening event.
