The Shame of Columbia

Crossposted from The Amboy Times:

The left continues it's trend towards radical politics. This time it turned violent for the sake of silencing free speech.

Jim Gilchrist, the Aliso Viejo accountant who co-founded the Minuteman Project, was forced offstage seconds into his speech at Columbia University on Wednesday night by students who said his anti-illegal immigration message was not welcome in New York.

Gilchrist, who was invited by the Columbia University College Republicans, was unharmed but was unable to continue speaking as planned and was forced to leave the stage after an altercation with students.

A bunch of spoiled, petulent, rich kids with no respect for the law or free speech. Perhaps we shouldn't be surprized that a group the stands for the rule of law would be physically and illegally attacked.
