Read this for a good breakdown on why Milo should not be speaking at universities. If he wants to bully students, that he needs to have a platform off-campus and not funded or supported by the university.

They let Michael Moore speak there. Might as well be consistent and stick with the trend of providing platforms to irrational, dishonest nutcases.

I've never seen Michael Moore incite violence or bigotry like those on the alt-right

They can easily find some nutcase on the right that doesn't bully or harass people to take up the cause of providing alternative facts to the students.

YOU ASSUME that they are on the left, but all you have to back that assertion up is that they incited violence against the bigots of the alt-right. Whoever these people were, they no more represent liberalism or the political left than the KKK or Islamic Terrorists represent Christianity or Islam.

Again - we agree on absolutely everything. You've just got your panties in a twist because you didn't like the label I used. And again, the whole reason why I called them illiberal was to distinguish them from liberals like myself.

He was invited and funded by a private group of students. Also, it seems to me he was certainly the person being bullied in this case. It's not like he is being funded by taxpayers or anything. You know, like a church.

Not a bad way to advertise... Confused

This sort of thing happens all the time. Peaceful protest groups get infiltrated by violent factions as a deliberate tactic to throw the peaceful protest groups into disrepute. Is it possible that Milos himself orchestrated the whole thing?

This comment is precisely why I think you are failing to think critically about this situation.

Why is he the victim? Because people protested his event? Regardless, if the campus has the ability to cancel the event, then it should. Did you read the article? Can you understand why what Milo does is much different and far more harmful than the people protesting his event?
