Comedian, radio personality and director Adam Carolla is on a mission to preserve the college campus as the epicenter of free speech.
Carolla has teamed up with conservative radio host Dennis Prager for a new film called “No Safe Spaces” with the goal of exposing the modern campus as the most dangerous place for ideas. He joined Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” to talk about censorship, outrage and victimization in the age of the safe space.
On the show, Glenn Beck asked Carolla to share his thoughts on actor Johnny Depp’s comments seeming to advocate for the assassination of President Donald Trump.
Carolla characterized Depp’s remarks as the actor forgetting that he wasn’t in insular Hollywood where people try to top each other in angry rhetoric about the president.
“It’s outrageous, and I understand, but I’m not outraged … because these are comedians and actors being stupid, and that’s what we do,” he said.
The real problem is when politicians and civil rights leaders try to teach women, minorities, gay people and other groups that Republicans have a target on their back.
“That kind of talk will get somebody shot,” Carolla said. “You compare this guy to Hitler enough; well who amongst us wouldn’t be a hero for taking out Hitler before he rose to his ultimate power?”
