Re: Tancredo Protest

In a world where universities threaten students with expulsion when they merely want to post pro-life materials in a display case, where students are shouted down by their own teachers for defending marriage, and when a student is actually expelled merely for her Christian beliefs regarding sexual morality, it is disheartening to see the other side of ideological aisle feel so bold as to actually engage in violence (language warning) to disrupt conservative speech.

I wonder, will UNC pursue violent student protesters with the same diligence and vehemence with which they have attacked the free-association rights of their Christian students? I doubt it. After all, we all know where the real threats exist

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
