    Legally exercising free speech in a peaceful manner is NEVER bullying to me...it is utilizing the rights granted in the constitution.

    But you are free to interpret their actions anyway you wish...that is your right.

    re: Rice Withdraws from Rutgers Commencement [W:77]

    I think people need to learn the diference between liberal and authoritarian leftist so they do not use the terms interchangeably.

    Extreme attempts to silence people are the product of an authoritarian leftist approach rather than liberal, and in that, these authoritarian leftists share many traits with the portion of the far right that is just as far from center.

    I'm reminded here of the way Brandeis treated Ayaan Hirsi Ali because she champions the rights of Islamic women -- what is actually liberal and what is called liberal due to the activities of authoritarian leftists are often two different things.

    It's still exercising their right to free speech...I see nothing bullying about that.

    They have the right to say that they do not want Rice to speak...just as others have a right to protest that they want her to speak now that she is not.

    None of that seems like bullying to me.

    IMO, free speech should always be encouraged...never discouraged.

    And so how does that wish stop Condi Rice from speaking?

    As I said in the OP, Rice showed alot of class by gracefully stepping aside. I never said she was stopped by anybody but putting words in peoples mouth they never said is the old and tiresome trick you libs always attempt.

    Oh. So no one stopped Ms. Rice from talking, huh. I guess she chose on her own not to talk because she felt it would be a disruption. Why goodness sake she even stated that in her statement on why she is not going. (Something of which no one stopped her there, either.)

    There is no in between. There is nothing in the middle but a large gaping chasm that swallows you up into a black hole of non commitment and babble. You can however be independent by being lib on some things, con on others.
