From safe spaces to trigger warnings to cries for reparations for black students to segregated “privilege” workshops, many of today’s college campuses are steeped in a frenzy of political correctness.
Comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla is teaming up with radio host and WND columnist Dennis Prager to expose the madness through a documentary titled “No Safe Spaces.”
They have been filming for several months, but they recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to help finance the movie. Carolla and Prager are seeking to raise $500,000, which would then be matched by another $500,000 from Dangerous Documentaries, the movie production branch of the Capital Research Center.
“For obvious reasons, Hollywood won’t be financing a film that calls out the hysteria and indoctrination taking place at universities,” reads a message on the project’s Indiegogo.com page. “That would be like asking a clown to take a stand against wearing giant shoes and driving tiny cars. This film will entertain and educate as an independent voice: your voice.”
Carolla and Prager promise to sweeten the pot with a wide variety of perks for donors, depending on how much they donate. For example, those who chip in $10 will receive a coloring book, which is a staple of safe spaces on many college campuses.
Those who donate $50 receive a “No Safe Spaces” film crew T-shirt. Anyone who gives $5,000 gets to enjoy either dinner and drinks with Carolla or dinner and cigars with Prager. And those generous enough to donate $20,000 are promised an executive producer credit, a trip to the movie’s Los Angeles premiere and admittance to a private reception on the premiere date.
As of June 2, more than $154,000 had been raised, representing 31 percent of the $500,000 goal.
