Conservative comedian and talk show host Adam Carolla has teamed up with conservative radio show host and author Dennis Prager to create a film documenting the dwindling right to free speech on college campuses.
The film is titled "No Safe Spaces," and according to Carolla, is intended to combat of the dying notion of free speech and return students' rights to exercise their 1st Amendment rights.
“The epicenter of free speech was always college campuses,” Carolla said about the film. “The very same place that advocated, fought, couple people actually died at Kent state for ... free speech, now are shutting down everybody who disagrees with them.”
Calling those trying to quash free speech "miserable," Carolla said, “We have a group of insanely miserable people who are just hammers looking for a nail. If President Trump could just put up a wall around the campuses and keep everything in the campus that would be fine. But this horrible child-like adolescent attitude is spreading into our society.”
In a Wednesday press release, Prager said that the story must be told because "the future of our country literally depends on what happens on these campuses."
“If these students don’t understand the very concept of free speech, our whole nation is in trouble,” he added.
The press release continued:
“The film takes Prager and Carolla to college campuses across the country, interviewing students and professors, comedians and commentators on the left and right, and those who have been impacted by the silencing of different voices on campus, analyzing the value of so-called safe-spaces.”
The project is being crowdfunded via Indiegogo, and as of Thursday evening, the project raised over $60k toward the goal of $500k.
