Free speech film ‘No Safe Spaces’ features Christian student attacked for her faith

Free speech film ‘No Safe Spaces’ features Christian student attacked for her faith

No Safe Spaces movie cover, October 2019

MJM Entertainment is gearing up to release the film “No Safe Spaces” that targets efforts to ban free speech. 

In "No Safe Spaces," comedian and podcast record-breaker Adam Carolla teams up with popular radio talk show host and author Dennis Prager to travel the country exploring how relevant the First Amendment is today on college campuses and across the U.S. The two men also talk to progressive and conservative experts and explore their own upbringings to highlight the intolerance in America today.

“What’s happening now in the United States is you are not to be heard on a college campus or at your place of work, this is brand new,” Prager says in the film.

PragerU's videos garnered over a billion views last year, but over 100 of their videos have been censored by YouTube which is owned by Google. YouTube has even censored PragerU's videos about the Ten Commandments, labeling them mature content that's “inappropriate” for “sensitive” audiences.  

In a clip shared with The Christian Post, UC Berkeley student Isabella Chow explains why she opted not to vote for a bill presented to the student senate because of her Christian faith and how she dealt with the repercussions of her decision. 

“I gave a short statement on why I couldn’t vote for that bill and the backlash was swifter and bigger than I would have ever imagined,” Chow says.

Hundreds of students demanded her resignation and she was called a “bigot” and “hater.” She was also denied the opportunity to respond to accusations that were being levied against her. 

The film's Indiegogo page says it “exposes the dangerous trend of suppressing free speech, and how our future depends on stopping it.”

It features commentators Van Jones, Alan Dershowitz, Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, Cornel West and "Last Man Standing" star Tim Allen, among others.

Award-winning actor Dennis Quaid and his band The Sharks also feature in the film with their song "Out of the Box."

“It’s not just Hollywood. Our whole culture has become intolerant,” Quaid told the New York Post in a previous interview. 

The 64-year-old explained that his song is about “being open to other points of view and not mindlessly giving yourself over to an ‘ism.’"

“I don’t give myself to any party or ism," Quaid asserted. "I don’t march lockstep with anything or anybody except for God and the values my mom taught me back in Texas."

The film begins its nationwide rollout in Phoenix, Arizona, on Oct. 25. Visit the movie’s website for more information. "No Safe Spaces” has been adapted into a book.
