NYU Students Protest Conservative Speaker

It's becoming a regular occurrence.  The message is that the liberal left is tolerant, but don't bother to bring your message that disagrees with them to their hive or they will swarm and cry and protest because an opposing opinion just won't be tolerated.  Last night it was Berkeley.  Tonight it is NYU.

Reminds me of the William F. Buckley quote: “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”

Multiple protesters were reportedly arrested Thursday night after an outcry over conservative speaker and Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes appearance at an NYU seminar.

According to CBS New York, police didn’t release any information on how many people were arrested or what charges they would face.

The raucous crowd appeared outside the Kimmel, Rosenthal Pavilion over McInnes’ speech at a seminar for college Republicans.

The ideological battle from the liberal left Democrats seems to have adopted a strategy of silencing the opposition.  You know, like Karl Marx taught, and like the communists, socialists and Nazis put into place.

Live video from inside the event showed McInnes speaking to the crowd and shouting at protesters who managed to sneak into the seminar. A frustrated McInnes cut the speech early after having a few choice words with some protesters who yelled things like “Shame!” and “Who’s campus, our campus!” at him.

Tolerant?  Hardly.

Gizmodo reported that McInnes barely made it into the NYU building. He was met with several protesters rushing him and unruly chants. The Post reported that some set “Make America Great Again” hats on fire.

The protests were apparently coordinated through Facebook under the name “Disrupt Gavin McInnes at NYU.”

“Come to Kimmel, Rosenthal Pavilion to let NYU know that we will not stand for bigotry, racism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny on our campus,” the event page reads. “Gavin McInnes has a long track record of using incendiary language to attract media attention and frenzy…Most recently, in December 2016, Gavin McInnes launched an informal group called the Proud Boys, an “anti racial guilt,” anti-feminist organization. When NYC Antifa began to share information about members of the group with their employers (in many cases leading to job loss), McInnes urged the Proud Boys to attend an Antifa concert and ‘wreck the s–t’ of the ‘f–gots.'”

The College Republicans group said in a statement they were disappointed in the protests, calling it a “shame” that the protesters couldn’t “be respectful of McInnes.”

The McInnes protest comes a day after UC Berkeley erupted over Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ planned speech. Rioters were seen lighting fires, pepper-spraying a Trump supporter and vandalizing buildings.

Apparently, the protesters and the leftists behind this crap don't understand that in a free country that means both sides should have a chance to speak without being forced into silence by violent mobs.  The problem is, they think they are so ideologically superior that there is no need to hear the other side.

Again, that was the same belief system of the communists, socialists and Nazis. . . yet, these idiots have tried to paste similar labels on their opposition.

"The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism." - Karl Marx

"The art of leadership... consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention." - Adolf Hitler

"He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future." - Adolf Hitler
The violent liberal left Democrat supporters on college campuses are showing what good totalitarian tools they are.
