Freedom of speech is only for the Left?

The far left is at it again. This time students at Columbia University—one of America’s preeminent universities—rushed the stage during a speech by a member of the Minute Men. Violence nearly ensued, that is if you don’t consider a mob rushing a stage and pushing over a lectern while intimidating a speaker to be violent. Without security present, who knows what would have happened? Obviously the speech was effectively terminated; yet again another visitor from the political right was silenced. Freedom of speech? Forget about it.

This has been going on for years. Benjamin Netanyahu, Ann Coulter, Pat Buchanan, Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin—all of these individuals were silenced by aggressive crowds of leftists on college campuses; all have had their freedom of speech denied.

I do not like Coulter or Buchanan, but I support their right to free speech, just as I support anybody’s right to speak.

I harp on the radical left a lot on this blog, but that doesn’t mean I’m giving the far right a free pass either. The difference between the two, however, is that the far right is miniscule compared to the far left. Example: when was the last time you heard about a throng of skinheads or KKK members rushing a stage at a university because a person of the left was speaking? That’s my point: whereas the far right are generally eschewed by society and their ideas given little consideration—their tactics less so—the far left are heavily represented on college campuses everywhere—even by some of the faculty on those campuses.

It’s just a matter of time before this country experiences the modern-day version of the Weather Underground. Don’t be surprised when the next terrorist attack is committed by a suburban leftist thug instead of some wild-eyed jihadi.
