Leftist Protesters Shut Down Free Speech Activists in New Zealand

Two popular Canadian podcasters were forced to cancel their planned free speech event in New Zealand after leftist agitators pressured the venue to comply with their demands.

Podcasters Stefan Molyenux and Lauren Southern had just wrapped up an event in Australia, where the two spoke about the challenges of multiculturalism and the west’s flailing identity crisis as a whole. While there, they were confronted by a mob of protesters who contended their message was inherently racist. Despite the pushback, however, Southern and Molyneux were able to complete the event as planned. They did not receive the same treatment in New Zealand.

In a YouTube upload released shortly after they learned the planned venue had pulled out of the agreement to host them, Molyneux and Southern recalled the events that led up to the cancellation. Apparently, the venue owner was completely onboard with the event just a day before. The following day, he threatened to have the two arrested if they arrived at the location.

This development is among the latest in a long string of leftist resistance to free speech events. In the United States, popular speakers with much larger audiences including Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter, and Ben Shapiro have been forced to cancel similar speaking events. Universities typically known to host such events often cite security concerns, rather than actually taking responsibility and ensuring the safety for everyone involved. Shapiro, considered by many to be the least controversial of conservative podcasters, was once forced to fork up $500,000 in security fees to speak at Berkeley.

Stefan Molyneux, who hosts a podcast called Freedomain Radio, has been a controversial figure in the so-called “intellectual dark web” — a term used by many to refer to the budding right-wing commentary community on social media websites. He has been a sharp critic of multiculturalism, feminism, and identity politics.

Lauren Southern rose to prominence as an on-screen personality for right-wing Canadian broadcaster Rebel Media. She famously confronted radical feminists head on during the “Slut Walk,” where she was berated and shamed for stating the obvious fact that there is no “rape culture” in the west — at least in the same vein as in underdeveloped theocracies in the Middle East. More recently, she has independently produced a film called Farmlands, which takes a critical look at the treatment of white farmers in South Africa.

While Molyneux and Southern were unable to take the stage in New Zealand, they did manage to capture plenty of material for their YouTube pages. In the video below, the two attempt to engage the protesters who seem convinced they represent everything that is evil in the world, and the results are painfully predictable. Check it out below.

  1. If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION
    AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2018, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT

  2. The more I hear/read of leftists shutting down those who have other opinions, the more I feel and think that the world has gone RED!! ‘Hello, Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, & buddies.’

  3. IF this was reversed and there was a white person telling a black person to shut up there would be riots. Now we have ultra leftist telling ordinary AMERICAN Conservatives not only they are right and everyone else is wrong and can not voice their opinion.

  4. WOW what is going on ? the whole world is turning up side down ! Looks like the BRAIN WASHING has worked we have total left and total right and neither side will give an inch. I can not fix what is going on but I wish I could. What has caused it or who has caused it and why is it happening. If you think what you think is correct great BUT it is not what your friend thinks so do you kill him or her ?? of coarse not So lighten up and listen to the other persons opinion and don’t argue about it, evaluate it & see if you can understand why they think that !! YOU DON’T have to agree just listen !

  5. Everyone should stay out of other countries business. Yes, the dems are idiots and their policies will fail. The people will decide what is right and what is wrong. Not the bigots.

  6. The sane people of this world (and especially here in the states, where freedoms have always been our national identity) are at war, and under attack, by the insane who want an entire world patterned after the old Soviet Union, and contemporary North Korea, and they don’t even know it.
    We have a multitude of idiots right here in the United States of America, the most free country to ever exist, who listen to far left propaganda, and want to topple the first President in over thirty years who is doing something FOR the country, rather than TO it.
    It boggles the mind that there can be so many who are so ignorantly stupid, that they want to destroy the very thing that allows THEM to voice their opinions, no matter how subversive, but they are quick to shut down anyone with opposing SANE views.
    I’m afraid it’s going to become a bloodbath before it’s over!
