    I remember when college campuses were diverse and celebrated free speech, actually I lied, I don't remember; my whole life colleges and universities have been invaded by SP's and it's really unfortunate.

    The university feared an attack on campus. Period.

    I didn't go to college until I was 26 and already served duty in the Canadian Armed Forces. Translation: I was already done with my youth and liberalism. I had gotten it by that time. I saw a little bit in the school I went too, but that was in Canada, and it wasn't all that political..

    Anything else you'd like to know?

    If campuses are going to insist that we need to have an armada of left-wing socially conscious films and documentaries that may be controversial (which is fine by me), then let's not get our panties in a bunch when a mainstream film is being shown. American Sniper was relatively tame, given that its main criticism was that it didn't even highlight (let alone make the decision to celebrate) his more controversial racial/ethnic views.

    Furthermore, attacking a film for being nationalistic is tremendously lame. Many of the celebrated left-wing films made in the past half century were nationalistic. They were attacking the colonial social order of the French, the British, the Soviets, and so on. In its place they frequently desired the native-grown population to take control over their own affairs. That's nationalism, folks. Methinks the youth meant to say "colonialist" or "hegemonic."

    One more. Were there, by any chance, friends you had in college who also didn't give in to the PC BS?

    I choose my friends carefully, so no not really. As far the babes, well although younger than I, I really didn't care about their politics if you know what I mean.

    There was no coercion involved. A bunch of people said "we don't like you're doing this and don't think you should" and so they didn't.
