    Yet once again we get a glimpse into that other world in which far too many (approx. 27%) still reside. Then there is the real world

    Looks like the 1st Amendment worked perfectly, both sides of the issue got to say their piece.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Of course not. You're dealing with fringers when you bring those topics up. Hardline cons would support liberals being disciplined and Hardline libs support conservatives receiving it, but that's it. They're hypocrites.

    In this case, liberals would've said "can the bigot" about Phil, and "free speech, free speech!" about the professor.

I'm all for protest, but I don't think this is a good way to do it. Not the worst way, I would just say it was rude.
    Can you give an example of how one would go about protesting the speaker at this event in a manner you would respect?

    Why do you think it will never happen?

    Besides being ignorant, it's also demonstrably untrue. The American Revolution inspired a series of revolutions resulting in the independence of numerous colonies from Europe, and of course resulted in Democratic politics in Europe itself. And within the judicial system there is the concept of precedent. According to you, "inspiration" isn't a thing. I can only imagine Jerry liking this post is for lulz.

    Failing? Have you been paying attention?
    Why are conservatives always against personal rights? They always come out for more government control in private lives.

    Not all conservatives. Not even close.

    I'm all for gay marriage, as are all of my conservative friends and my conservative husband. We personally don't give a damn who marries who. Gays, siblings, polygamists, whatever.
