My friend Diversity Chronicle urged me to see “No Safe Spaces” at a theater, since it’s now playing in the Portland area.
The venue had posters outside the entrance, showing some of the movies currently showing:
Notably absent was any poster advertising “No Safe Spaces.” Once inside, I also noticed that “No Safe Spaces” was being shown at the very last auditorium:
The showing was supposed to be at 8:45, and I arrived at 8:40 to an empty auditorium. In the end, there were about 10 of us watching the movie. This was the last showing of the day; I’m sure there were more at earlier showings.
It had been many years since I’ve been inside a theater, so I showed up on time and took my seat. Somebody should have warned me I’d have to sit through 20 minutes of vile, in-your-face, propaganda (AKA “previews”) before the feature film actually started. Apparently, most people are inured to such propaganda, so they think nothing of it. For me, it was painful to watch.
But once the feature film started, I was not disappointed. I learned some things about Dennis Prager I had not previously known, and I have new respect for the man.
As one would expect, the movie tells the many tales of left wing censorship and oppression, mainly on American campuses, but also within the comedy industry. It was riveting and humorous.
The producers emphasize that it’s not only conservatives who fall victim to left wing oppression; anybody who can think for himself, including some leftists, are vulnerable.
Much of the movie is dialog between Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla. They repeatedly tell us how ethnic groups don’t matter, that all that matters is the individual, and that America was founded as a “concept nation.” That is what will be inscribed on the epitaph of American Conservatism.
I haven’t watched many Prager University videos, so somebody correct me if I’m wrong – but I get the impression that this conservative group is eager to entertain dialog with leftists, but not with white-advocates. I would love to see a debate between Mr. Prager and a prominent white-advocate… or perhaps the “free exchange of ideas” only goes so far with this crowd.
Despite its flaws, I wish this movie were required viewing for all American high school students.
