Video: Increase in the use of “Triggering” to suppress free speech at colleges



If you are not familiar with what “Triggering” or “Trigger Warnings” are you should watch the short video below. “Triggering” is a term in its current usage, used to limit free speech. “Triggering” first appeared on Liberal Progressive, Feminist and Social Justice blogs. The simple explanation is that Liberal Progressives of certain stripes started saying that certain words, phrases, movies, books, posters and other forms of speech would “trigger” an involuntary response including violent responses in certain people and therefore the speech should not be allowed. See how this can and is used to limit free speech? See how this can also be used to justify violent attacks against people who say something Lib/Progs disagree with? If someone does not like what you are saying, a “victim group” can just declare what you are saying to be a “trigger” and use regulations and policies restricting “trigger language” to stop you from saying it. This will be a growing trend as Liberal Progressives look for new ways to control free speech and even free thought into the future.
