What if Conservatives Started Protesting Liberal Speakers the Way Liberals Protest Conservatives?
What if conservatives started protesting liberal speakers the way liberals protest conservatives? What if conservatives drive off liberal commencement speakers like liberals do to conservatives? What if conservatives occupy campus demanding safe places? What if conservatives tried to muzzle liberal speech on campuses? What if conservatives issued not debatable ultimatums to college leaders? What if conservatives refused to hire outspokingly liberal faculty members? What if conservative students disrupted rallies and speeches by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Barry Sanders? What if conservative students challenged and tested the limits of campus free speech? What if conservative students made full use of safe zones and speech codes? What if conservative students demanded trigger warnings from liberal professors every time they professed their liberal bias in class? What if conservative students filed complaints every time a liberal student said or wrote something that outraged the sensitivities of the liberal or was viewed as threatening? What if Jewish students filed complaints every time an administrator, student of professor said or wrote an anti-Semitic statement? What if Christian students filed complaints every time an administrator, student, or professor discriminated against Christianity? What if conservative students mounted protests proclaiming “All Lives Matter”? What if conservatives mounted protests proclaiming “Police Lives Matter”? What if conservative students won control of student government and began to defund left-wing radical organizations? Why don’t conservatives demand, including through protests, the firing of every professor who expresses anti-conservative bias or anti-Semitism? Why don’t conservatives file lawsuits against public campus administrators who dent them their First Amendment rights and seek not only damages but attorneys fees against the individual administrators? And why don’t campus conservatives constantly proclaim the I Have a Dream” quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jt.: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Why don’t they do these acts of the campus liberals? First, they tend to actually vote with their hands and feet rather than their mouths. Second, some universities will undoubtedly attempt to expel them. I have MLK’s Dream.
