Politically Correct Fascism at Portland State University

Check this article for an explanation of the grievance of the intolerant people who felt they had a right to shut up the speaker of whom they disapproved.

Somebody yelled over a speaker? Fascism! Reverse discrimination! Rabble!


You're a political scientist. This is not fascism.

This is not fascism.

You need to study up on what the Hitler Youth were doing in German universities in the early 1930s.

Shouting down and shutting up speakers one does not like is most certainly fascist.

So yelling over a speaker you don't like is fascist? If PETA went to University of Alabama and got heckled, that would count as fascism? Fascism is a political ideology, not just an annoying form of protest. Making absurd Hitler Youth analogies does not help your case. "Young Nazis yelled at university speakers they did not like, and so do some hippies in Portland, therefore those liberal hippies are just like fascist Nazis." Come on, get serious.

"Fascism /fæʃɪzəm/ is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism[1][2] that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy during World War I, combining more typically right-wing positions with elements of left-wing politics, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and traditional conservatism."

I didn't find the section on how hippies yelling over a protester they disagree with qualifies as fascism.
