“Social Justice is important to me” Brai told us. “There was once a time in our American history where cops wouldn’t even file paper work on people who were beaten up for being gay. To me that’s unacceptable.”
Brai recently attended a campus protest to shut down a conservative speaker who was invited to his University. It dawned on him as he looked around the room and watched everyone chanting “Hey Hey, Ho Ho, this racist, homophobic scum bag’s got to go” over and over.
“We are being fascists” he said. “Sure, I don’t like the anti-homosexual commentary that is spewing out of his mouth on that stage, standing there in a position of authority while hundreds of students listen to him, but there has to be a better way to go about this. He has his right to freedom of speech too, right?”
Brai spoke with the organizers of the protest and offered his idea.
The student council and protest organizers were livid and began shouting in his face that he was a nazi sympathizer and that anyone who supported freedom of speech were supporting hate speech.
“I think they acted ridiculously” he told us. “I will never stop fighting for social justice and equality, but I will do so with enlightenment, discussion, and education, not attempting to shut down everyone I disagree with.”
A reasonable idea we thought, but unfortunately Brai is now known among the social justice warrior crowd at his school as ‘Brai the Nazi Guy’.
