Black Lives Matter Shuts Down ACLU Free Speech Event: “Liberalism Is White Supremacy”

You have no freedom of speech on a college campus unless you say what Black Lives Matter militants want to hear — even if you are a moonbat yourself:

Students affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement crashed an event at the College of William & Mary, rushed the stage, and prevented the invited guest—the American Civil Liberties Union’s Claire Gastañaga, a W & M alum—from speaking.

Ironically, Gastañaga had intended to speak on the subject, “Students and the First Amendment.”

The spectacle certainly was instructive regarding the relationship between students and the First Amendment in the age of safe spaces and Affirmative Action run amok.

Students took to the stage just a few moments after Gastañaga began her remarks. At first, she attempted to spin the demonstration as a welcome example of the kind of thing she had come to campus to discuss, commenting “Good, I like this,” as they lined up and raised their signs. “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this illustrates very well. Then I’m going to respond to questions from the moderators, and then questions from the audience.”

That was the last she was able to get out before the militants drowned her out with chants that included “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution” and “liberalism is white supremacy.”

This confirms two assumptions: (1) the Constitution that defines this country will be abolished in favor of raw tyranny the moment these people get the leverage (no wonder BLM types won’t stand for the national anthem at NFL games); and (2) if they get their revolution, the white liberals who enable it will not be spared the firing squad.

This went on for nearly 20 minutes. Eventually, according to the campus’s Flat Hat News, one of the college’s co-organizers of the event handed a microphone to the protest’s leader, who delivered a prepared statement. The disruption was apparently payback for the ACLU’s principled First Amendment defense of the Charlottesville alt-right’s civil liberties.

Thug tactics are used because thug tactics work, although only among people with insufficient commitment to liberty. Before long, this will inevitably lead to rule by thugs. Zimbabwe, here we come.

Not even the ACLU is moonbatty enough.

On tips from J, TCS III, and Torcer.
