DAILYKENN.com -- I'm back in Facebook jail again. It's the result of expressing views not in keeping with the dogma of the far-left's cultural Marxism cult.
A student in Britain is facing more dire consequences for expressing his traditionalist views on Facebook: Felix Ngole was kicked out of college.
"A ‘Fitness to Practice’ committee concluded that while Ngole was entitled to his opinion, he was in danger of causing offense by voicing it. As a result, Ngole was expelled from the university and barred from gaining professional qualifications," a report explains.
Apparently the post-grad student noted his Christian orientation regarding same-sex marriage. The expulsion sends a clarion message to those outside the cultural Marxism cult: Shut up or be excluded. The ramifications of the punishment — with judge or jury — will likely cost the student countless thousands of dollars (pounds) in future income. It's effectively a life fine.
Now, imagine British culture prior to the invasion of the far left. Imagine a student expressed his opinion favoring homosexual marriage and was, consequently, kick out of his university for expressing those views. Would there have been an uproar of protests? Would conservatives have been on the front line defense of the offender's right to free expression?

Two years after marriage was redefined in the U.K., Felix Ngole found himself in a discussion on Facebook. The topic was same-sex marriage, and during the discourse, the-father-of-four put forward the Christian position on the matter. At the time, Ngole was a postgraduate student, enrolled in a social work course at Sheffield University.
Two months after posting his comment, Ngole received a letter from the university informing him that he was under investigation. He was eventually summoned to a disciplinary hearing where he was told that he had breached social work guidelines regarding “personal conduct” and “brought the profession into disrepute.”
A ‘Fitness to Practice’ committee concluded that while Ngole was entitled to his opinion, he was in danger of causing offense by voicing it. As a result, Ngole was expelled from the university and barred from gaining professional qualifications.
In the letter expelling Ngole, a departmental official said, “The committee were clear to point out that their decision is not based on your views but on your act of publicly posting those views such that it will have an effect on your ability to carry out a role as a social worker… this action was extremely poor judgement on your part and had transgressed boundaries which are not deemed appropriate for someone entering the social work profession.”
In other words, “I may not agree with what you have to say, so I’ll fight to the death for the right to prevent you saying it.”
