CNN Host W. Kamau Bell, of “United Shades of America” has now stated that cancellations of conservative speakers on college campuses is all about protecting students from “hate speech” and has nothing to do with free speech.
On The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer asked Bell about his thoughts of the cancellations of speakers such as Ann Coulter and the regards of free speech.
Bell then went on some crazy rant about “The People’s Republic of Berkeley, CA” and something about the riot cancelled the farmers market he goes to and then continues about how Berkeley was in the right to shut down any right-wing speakers.
“That’s not about free speech,” the CNN host said. “The reason why people’s speeches are being canceled is because it’s a safety issue. If your free speech leads to hate speech, and it makes people feel unsafe, then universities have the right to protect the kids on campus.”
