An “Evening with Canceled Women” was scheduled to take place on Friday, January 17
at the New York Public Library. The Women’s Liberation Front in coordination with other leading feminists had planned to host a discussion espousing the feminist position of supporting women’s equality in the context of scientific truth of biological sex. A schism has grown in the feminist movement over this issue as the Left can no longer fully support both rights of biological women alongside the demands of the transgender movement. The feminist hosts understood the event to have been scheduled yet their deposit had not be taken. The day before the room deposit was due, the library reneged on the event without giving any explanation for the cancellation leaving the WLF to believe it was backlash from trans activists. Feminists feel they have been silenced.
Meanwhile, from out in the hinterland, conservatives have been anticipating and waiting for events such as these. Having been the first targets of censorship, conservatives have enjoyed the unsettling wisdom for quite some time.
The progressive Left is so radical and chaotic because it breeds division and disunity eventually, and necessarily, leading to irreconcilable contradictions. In this case, the feminist left thrives on protecting women from “pervasive harassment, silencing, coercion, violence, forced lying and endless punishment” while the mission of the trans left is to reengineer society’s “flawed”, antiquated biological designations. Conservatives have anticipated these conflicts. The Right contends with the paradox of allowing the removal of God from the American public square while understanding the entire American premise (our Declaration of Independence and US Constitution) is founded on the sacred belief in God.
The conservative right has been jarred into understanding what defense of free speech truly means: defending speech with which you disagree. With this wisdom, conservatives should be fully prepared to standing in defense of utterances that are undesirable and undignified as long as there is no measurable harm to another individual. This is the constitutional position for free speech advocacy. The Left will now have to learn these harsh lessons as they go in the ring to battle their own.
This event was predictable; what is not, however, is whether or not the American Left, in going through these tough political trials, will come out on the side of freedom or if they will remain hellbent on building their politically correct tyrannical empire.
