    UNC protest gets rowdy

    Tolerant folks.
    Freedom of Speech?
    It's nice they are so open minded.
    No doubt they supported A'm-in-a-Jihad, the Hilter of our time, speaking at Columbia.
    Wonder what would happen if you had a McCain/Palin or Bush/Cheney sticker on your car.

    UNC students protested a speaker who opposes illegal immigrants in schools. - 4/15/09 - Raleigh News - abc11.com

    .
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Freedom of speech, as long as you agree with the Left. It seems typical of many of these protest groups.

    Yes. And criticizing the Dixie Chicks and refusing to buy their stuff were unconscionable acts of censorship and McCarthyism.

    There is a big difference between private citizens boycotting something or someone and a public school doing the same thing.

    Seriously...you're going back to McCarthyism? Sorry, when I was talking about "these protest groups" I was speaking of relatively recent years.

    Dixie Chicks is nothing like that. That is the free market speaking. If you can show me an instance where protests occured that either kept large amounts of people from entering a Dixie Chicks concert or was loud/obstructing enough to cause the concert to not be able to happen, then you'd have a point.

    Refusing to buy their stuff is not "Censorship". Protesting the advertisers of a a radio station playing their music is not "censorship". Nothing is stopping them from physically being able to be heard or to speak.

    Shouting down a speech so its physically impossible for anyone to hear it and inciting fear for ones safety through the breaking of private property is COMPLETELY different than choosing not to buy a CD.

    You may want to re-read my post in the context of this news story and this thread.

    You guys, again, need to get your sarcasm meters checked.

    Man, on other boards, I'm taken as sarcastic when I don't mean to be. Here, people don't seem to be able to tell when I do.

    Why don't they go to Mexico and protest the government not providing jobs for the people?

    So that they have to leave their families behind and live in a foreign country?

    Liberals can never pick out the real culprit!

    Pardon me is sarcasm is hard to tell on the internets.

    No, but people throwing their Dixie Chicks cds into a pile to be bulldozed was a hilarious event to behold. They may as well have flushed their money down the toilet. It's no different than people burning their Beatles records because Lennon said that they were bigger than Jesus.
