The movie is set to open in select theaters on November 5th, but you can still pre-order DVDs that include a lot of extras, including statements from GOP presidential candidates Ben Carson and Ted Cruz.
Those of you who have followed us here at the Conservative Firing Line for any length of time know that we have dedicated a lot of space to the erosion of our freedom under the auspices of political correctness. You may also know that yours truly has written about this a lot over at Examiner.
Just today, for example, our very own TK Whiteman wrote about a Christian football coach who was placed on administrative leave for daring to pray on a football field after a game. Meanwhile, Satanists have been invited to the games to offer, what, exactly?
That teacher is not alone, however. Average Americans of all stripes have also felt the tyrannical oppression of liberals practicing what they call “tolerance.” Christians are told they must accept whatever dogma liberals come up with — or else. As this writer can personally attest, those whose opinions fall somewhere to the right of Stalin are often told to sit down and shut up. Refusal to march to a liberal drumbeat gets one instantly labeled a “racist-sexist-homophobe-right-wing-fundamentalist-bigot.” Add to that the latest slur: Islamophobe.
This movie is sorely needed, and you must go see it, or better yet, buy it and share it with your friends.
Pastor Doug Wilson wrote about the background of the movie:
About three years ago, Nancy was invited to speak at a women’s retreat in Bloomington, Indiana. We hate being separated, so I tagged along. The retreat was sponsored by a church pastored by a friend of mine, and so the thought occurred to somebody that I could also do some event while I was there. We settled on the topic Sexual by Design, with the thought that I could present a few talks on that topic on the campus of Indiana University.
Word got out among the intoleristas that I was coming, and so opposition began to coalesce, if coalesce is the word I want. As the time approached, the opposition began to coalesce with even greater energy in it such that it became a Coalescence. We got word that I was going to be glitter-bombed. I remember telling someone here that my prayer request was that I not be glitter-bombed, but if that indeed happened anyway, that I would look fabulous.
“The event was an eeeevent,” he added. “With a raucous and disrespectful crowd, brim full of hate, spite, irrationality, malice and vituperative noise, I was frankly glad for the presence of the cops. There were about twenty cops, as I recall.”
Imagine that — having cops on hand for protection from unhinged liberals. Sadly, that’s what America has turned into, and unless the silent majority stands up, it will only get worse.
…Since that exciting evening, the cultural wrecking ball that was represented by these students has done its damage to many more institutions, and in many more places — as in all fifty states, and most institutions within those fifty states. Our once fair republic circled the drain a couple more times, and then this last summer, as though somebody gave a signal, the great juggernaut of tolerance was dragged across our continent. Perhaps you have noticed? And perhaps you noticed how many metaphors were in this paragraph? Like two hummingbirds who had also never met?
So, he adds, if you care about this country, the first thing you need to do is watch this movie. A post at Joe for America notes:
“The Free Speech Apocalypse” is an eye-opening film which gives the viewer a close-up glimpse into the world of the contemporary University campus; where young adults have been literally brainwashed into believing that ideas and differing points of view are dangerous and must be stopped.
The film exposes the strategies of the anti-God, anti-traditional, hyper-liberal elite and offers perspective on the cultural decay that has accelerated across the country over the three years since Wilson’s visit to Indiana University.
Darren Doane, director of the film, sat down for an interview with Joe for America, and it’s well worth a read.
You can get a glimpse of what to expect from the trailer below:
