These are progressives/socialists protesting Ben Shapiro's speech at Ohio state. The producer and others, tried to ask questions of the protestors, and contrary to how they are portrayed throughout the media, the protesters proved NOT to be level headed, rational, benevolent, fair minded peaceniks. In fact, right from the very beginning, they proved that they literally knew absolutely NOTHING about Ben Shapiro, aside from the typically hateful, dishonest garbage propaganda they are "told" to believe!

But they also show that they DO NOT believe in free speech for people with different opinions than theirs. They prove that they don't even listen to the people they are protesting, and have NO idea why they are actually trying to shut down his free speech. They prove that MANY modern progressives automatically accept the ridiculous leftist propaganda that almost everyone who isn't on their side, IS a Nazi! They also prove that they openly support not only arbitrarily denying free speech of anyone they are 'told' is a "Nazi", many also support arbitrarily assaulting and beating those people to a pulp.

There is at least 1 person here(DP) that thinks the exact same way the most radical of these protesters do, because that person made a bunch of BS accusations against me in a post, then followed it up with the threat that "once we take power, we are going to take care of 'Nazis' like you". I'm in no way afraid of that threat, but I think that reasonable people need to actually pay attention to the things these people ARE actually saying, because it's clear that they would literally support a communist style of dictatorial and arbitrary 'purging' of anyone they randomly decide is a "Nazi", which at this point is literally anyone who doesn't think exactly they way they think, or worse yet, anyone who they are 'told' has wrong-think! BTW, doesn't their mindset strike anyone as, oh I don't know, fascist? :confused:

I call BS. A Trump-like assertion that you failed to link to.

I applaud your generosity limiting the radical count to "at least one person"...You should be a diplomat.

This is absurd stuff on the left. To paraphrase what Robert Reich is supposed to have said about Ann Coulter, "let him speak; how else can we learn how vapid his ideas are?"

What happened to debate? Some, probably not many, universities live in a liberal bubble. As to conservatives, when will Limbaugh come out from behind his mike to mix it up with someone for an hour?
