It's too bad the protestors didn't just kill the Trump supporters.

Until the students said they didn't. And I'd consider the student body to be a part of the overall institution, or the venue.

The lunatics shouldn't run the asylum.

Now who's the authoritarian?

Yeah because I think dumbass students shouldn't have a say in who the school allows to talk, that makes me an authoritarian. They can protest peacefully outside if they want.

They are STUDENTS.

Keep ignoring reality, it's really helping your cause.

Just because one douche burnt a sign doesn't mean I think Berkeley should have let a bigot incite a crowd with his rhetoric and put undocumented immigrants in their community in very real physical danger.

So your imagined physical danger of illegal immigrants is more important to you that the real physical attacks that these deranged antifa assholes did to elderly people, women, and others? Brilliant.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Then you aren't paying attention, and you haven't followed the story. Two words: pepper spray.

Whatever the protesters did doesn't change my point.

Nor does it change mine. You'd rather protect illegal immigrants from imaginary danger than protect American citizens from actual, active violence. Because xenophobia!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not anti immigration, it's anti ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Why is this so hard for you goons to understand?

Yes, xenophobic assholes are always very careful to make this distinction.

Don't be retarded. I fully support legal immigrants, and I've literally never met anyone that doesn't. Illegal immigration hurts everyone, but it especially hurts the poor. Why do you hate the poor?

Illegal immigration does not hurt me. Not 1 bit.

This happens often...people confuse "freedom of speech" with "freedom from any and all consequences or ramifications of speech." It's the same thing when someone's show gets cancelled because of boycotts and protests. If a business (or a school) decides the protests make the person not worth the trouble, their speech isn't inhibited if that show gets cancelled.

They are STUDENTS.

They're also adults. This is a college, not a middle school.

So? It's moronic to allow students much say in what they are allowed to hear at a school.

That's how this ignorant safe space bullshit started in the first place.

Or it can be a judgment call. Maybe the school can listen to them, and then decide?

I'm sure they did listen. It's fucking Berkeley. Then they had the audacity to act like adults and allow free speech to occur at their university.

It's one or the other, chud. You can want to protect illegal immigrants from speakers trying to incite violence against them or you can condemn people who are committing violence. You can't do both.

Both sides have the right to free speech. Both sides exercised that right. 1 side "won" out because the college institution listened to its "constituents" who pay their fucking bills.
