We were very excited to be contacted by the PR team promoting the upcoming film No Safe Spaces starring Adam Carolla and our friend, radio host Dennis Prager. The PolitiChicks have been featured on Prager’s radio show many times so we are especially happy to let our readers know about his movie.
This film will chronicle the onslaught of attacks on the 1st Amendment, from banning speakers on college campuses to firing comedians if they express opinions people disagree with. And at one time wasn’t that the entire point of having comedians in the first place? As Adam Carolla says, “Free speech is free on campuses unless you’re hearing ideas you don’t like.”
Even people on the left understand the attack on #1A is a very dangerous one:
Bill Maher: “Whoever said you only had to hear what didn’t upset you?”
Van Jones: “I want every student to be physically safe. But if you mean ’emotionally’ safe? I don’t know why you’re in college…”
Alan Dershshowitz: “If you want to feel good go get a massage…”
The film is scheduled to be out this fall but we will give you updates as we get them along the way.
Here’s the synopsis:
Adam Carolla is an atheist but has teamed up with conservative radio show host Dennis Prager (who is a conservative Jewish radio show host and author) for the film NO SAFE SPACES (out fall 2019).
No Safe Spaces is a documentary detailing the ongoing battle regarding the First Amendment on college campuses across the country and how identity politics enables it. They argues that this generation has been trained to hate alternative opinions and debates and unleash their anger on those with opposing views.
Carolla talks to fellow comedians about the challenge of doing comedy on a campus today. Many comedians, such as Jerry Seinfeld, have said they will not appear on college campuses. Why would they? Comedy necessitates a certain irreverence and requires an audience people to be able take good-natured digs at them and/or their groups.
No Safe Spaces also includes commentary from a variety of Hollywood actors, scholars, academics, political figures, and media members, including Van Jones, Alan Dershowitz, Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, Cornel West, and Tim Allen.
