    No matter what side of the political aisle you are on, No Safe Spaces delves into the center of the culture wars and the current state of higher education. 


    I work at a university: the relatively recent ring-wing claims that conservative voices are being silenced (via speech codes, safe spaces, etc.) and the older notion that universities are dominated by leftists are both demonstrably false. The film's premise is flawed from the outset--it's bemoaning a problem at that doesn't actually exist. 

    There is plenty of examples and evidence of Conservative viewpoints and speakers being barred and other times physically stopped or assaulted on college campuses.  Berkley burned down its own student union building.  Any evidence or stats of this being "demonstrably false?"

    Wait, what? Did that really happen? I feel like I would have heard about it, but maybe not. 
    Pudding in and pudding in--don't feel like methadone.

    No safe spaces say the conservatives...except during the National Anthem, the Olympics, sports games, audio and visual entertainment, anywhere in the vicinity of a soldier or police officer, or regarding the (conservative) POTUS...

    A few more conservative safe spaces that come to mind: the area immediately surrounding a flag, Bible, or person who believes in the big Sky Daddy...

    Right. There's no controversy or in-fighting surrounding the flag and the Bible...your examples are far from Safe Spaces.

    Is that the measure?  No controversy or in-fighting?  
    Well then I guess there is no such thing as a safe space on the left, either.

    So, no.
    Not even close, really.
