Students Today Are Afraid to Say Anything That’s Politically Incorrect (VIDEO)

Christina Hoff Sommers, author of “The War Against Boys,” explains how political correctness in our culture seeks to silence opposing views. Whether someone is making an argument that contradicts the prevailing doctrines of feminism, or that challenges the “victim culture” that permeates the educational system, Sommers says free speech is constantly being challenged on campus. But if students are afraid to express views that are unpopular, critical thinking is stifled and the nation suffers.

“We have a generation of kids who can’t argue,” Sommers says. “They think that will create tension or there’s something wrong with it. Well, if you can’t argue, you can’t think.”
