    Condi Rice prevented herself from going; no leftist stopped her from freely speaking. As a matter of fact take note of what the President of Rutgers said:

    In a statement when the controversy first erupted, Rutgers president Robert Barchi said, “We cannot protect free speech or academic freedom by denying others the right to an opposing view, or by excluding those with whom we may disagree. Free speech and academic freedom cannot be determined by any group. They cannot insist on consensus or popularity.”
    The University is the only factor that could have stopped her and they didn't choose to do so; it was Rice's decision alone.

    Okaaaaay.


    Well, I think I have wasted enough time on someone that would say something so nonsensical as:

    'Why do liberals hate black people?'


    We are definitely done on this - I only waste so much time on people I don't respect.


    Good day.

    It was pretty obvious from your first reply to me that you took my post seriously. Then you do a nice pirouette and say you didn't take it seriously or not seriously. If you're going to try to insult me personally, at least have the courage to stick by it. Otherwise you just look sad.

    Lol...you also said in another thread:

    'It's good to see the racists lose.' Referring to those who support Affirmative Action.

    Your track record is clear pal...making ridiculous race-based statements against liberals seems to be a hobby for you.


    Bye bye now.

    certain faculty and students bullied rice into withdrawing.

    they're a bunch of hypocrites as far as i'm concerned. they must feel really satisfied with their accomplishment.

    Bullying?

    Exercising their right to free speech by peacefully protesting is bullying to you?

    Noted.

    Ah, how sweet of you to get all stalkery and look at my previous posts! Actually, I was dead serious about the affirmative action post. Why would any logically minded person support a racist policy? It boggles the mind. By the way, just to be perfectly correct, I didn't say a word about liberals in the affirmative action thread. That was your own projection.

    I was playing around in this thread, and made a post similar to ones I've seen by some on the left here concerning conservatives. Your weak attempt at a personal insult was pretty funny.

    Yes, I think the safest thing for you now is to scurry away. No more stalking, now!

    I was looking at some of the headlines on Google News about this story, and saw this post on Google+:

    The Rutgers community has every right to make their feelings known about Condi Rice addressing their grads. But they are losing far more than they win when Rice does the classy thing and turns down the invite. It’s easy to place your hands over your ears and shut out ideas you disagree with. It is so much harder — and far more honorable — to open your mind in order to listen to someone with whom you have little in common.

    I think that pretty much nails how I think about these kinds of situations.

    And then he said this;

    "Barchi had adopted a different tone this week: “I frankly wish from my point of view that this whole affair was not here right now because it’s distracting from what great things we’re doing as a university. . . . It does have us, for better or worse, right in the crosshairs right now.”

    You really should have kept reading beyond what you wanted to see.
