Fox News host Megyn Kelly recently had a Harvard student on her show to discuss free speech and “safe spaces” on the college campuses, and things took a ridiculous turn very quickly.
According to Western Journalism, Rachel Huebner is a psychology major and a writer for the Harvard Crimson newspaper, and Kelly had a very interesting reaction to what the student said was happening on her campus.
Huebner told Kelly that she believes people go to college in order to interact with people of different backgrounds with a variety of unique ideological viewpoints, but she added that the exact opposite is happening on campuses. Instead, Huebner is seeing a lack of freedom of expression, and viewpoints and beliefs are being stifled.
In an editorial she wrote for the Harvard newspaper, Huebner described an interaction she had with another student.
“I posed a question about a verse from the Bible,” she wrote. “A Harvard employee in the room immediately interjected, informing me that we were in a safe space and I was thus not permitted to discuss the controversial biblical passage.”
Huebner also told Kelly about an incident in which a freshman tried putting an American flag on the wall in his dorm room, but his roommate insisted he take it down because, to him, the flag was offensive and a political statement he wasn’t willing to make.
Kelly could not help but roll her eyes, and her crew could be heard laughing in the background.
“Can you believe these professors allows this and that these students think they’re going to be able to function in the world?” Kelly asked.
Huebner replied by saying she thinks censorship is perpetrated more by students than teachers.
