Its a funny thing how liberals far left whine about their free speech, but seem to forget about The First Amendment when it comes time for others to exercise their right. Such was the case at Columbia University when the Minute Men and Jim Gilchrist tried to speak. This is unbelievable. Columbia University, its President and alumni should be ashamed at the behavior of what makes up its student body.
At Columbia, Students Attack Minuteman Founder
Students stormed the stage at Columbia University’s Roone auditorium yesterday, knocking over chairs and tables and attacking Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the Minutemen, a group that patrols the border between America and Mexico. (New York Sun)
Also read a great live blogging account from The BWOG, (a must read)
7: 30 PM: In the biggest old-fashioned activist shindig Broadway has seen since Chris Kulawik’s last guest arrived in November 2005, hundreds of students and community members yelled and picketed outside Lerner to protest the arrival of Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minutemen. They had catchy slogans.
“Workers of the world unite! Same struggle, same fight!”
“Minutemen, Nazis, KKK! Racists, fascists, go away!”
What an amazing display from students who attend an Ivy League School. Let the President of Columbia let him know how you feel, here. Folks, take a good look at these videos and read the live blogging events that took place. Ever wonder what side of the aisle does not want you heard? It is amazing sometimes the intolerance of those who claim they are the the tolerance movement.
Michelle Malkin also has a great round up of events.
