Comedian Adam Carolla went before the United States House Oversight Committee today to address free speech concerns on the nation’s college campuses -- along with college professors, administrators, and Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire. Carolla is producing a movie with radio host Dennis Prager called “No Safe Spaces” that tackles this issue head on.
He told the House that today's college students “grew up dipped in Purell,” both in truth and metaphorically. He said many of them need to “build up their immune system.”
He also used outer space as a striking example of what safe spaces on campus do to young people. People in a zero gravity environment suffer from loss of muscle tone and bone density. College kids “need to live in a world that has gravity,” he emphasized.
“Children are the future, but we are the present,” Carolla said, imploring congressmen and professors to act like adults. Mike Opelka agreed on today's "Pure Opelka," saying many boomers are “worried about being friends with the young people” instead of guiding them into responsible adulthood.
