The Right Way to Protect Free Speech on Campus
"...a primary obligation to foster open and civil discourse."
       The difficulty arises when modern America believes that people who disagree with them do not deserve civil discourse. It is the Talibanization of our culture: some opinions (especially those that disagree with mine) may not be heard, and it is acceptable to attack those who hold them, whether verbally or physically.
      What we saw at Middlebury, and at many other campi, is lynch-mob thinking, pure and simple.

DUP Protest: Pro-Corbyn CYoung Voters Take Aim At The ‘Racist, Sexist, Anti-Gay’ Party
DUP’s Record On Abortion, Creationism And LGBT Rights

What did you THINK was going to happen, snowflake?
Or do you just want to ensure that the UK is ungovernable.

Is that like "London is reeling?"
The protests seem to be saying:
"We lost a free and fair election, but you should do as we say anyway."
How very American.
