Exposing more lib tyranny

At the urging of a friend… “You really should post about this. We need more of this lib tyranny exposed”… I present the following link for your disgust.  HERE

Ben Shapiro was slated to speak at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.  His talk was invaded by snowflake terrorists.  There is also video of how they treated a local journalist and radio talk show host whom I call the “Rush of Madison”, Vicki McKenna. It’s pretty awful and it could have gone a great deal differently.

One of the most shocking things about this is that the UW cops were told to stand down and not interfere even though the interference with the talk had been broadcast ahead of time on Fakebook.

If you have ever wondered how The Terror took hold in France, just watch this.

    Today’s snowflake terrorists on college campuses are the modern-day “useful idiots” that Vladimir Lenin used to his advantage during the Bolshevik Revolution (inspired by, you guessed it, the proto-marxist French revolution). I look at these videos and hear interviews of these inarticulate fools and wonder how on earth they were even accepted to these universities.

    Sounds like there’s a need for a campaign called ‘Free Speech Matters.’

    You can watch his entire talk HERE As usual, Shapiro gives it right back to the protesters.

    I think this is a perfect example of how ‘the sins of the father shall be visited upon the son”

    God help us.

    If I was a cop, I don’t care what my Chief would have told me. I’m there to maintain Law and Order. And the Left wonders why they lost the election? I think it’s pretty darn self-evident.

    I’m an Englishman who takes an interest in American current affairs. This business (I have been watching the video at the address provided by acardnal) confirms an opinion I have about the United States: it’s such a big country that everything is magnified compared to Home; there is so much good and so much bad to be seen in whatever aspect of life you care to consider.

    I had already encountered YAF online, and I am positively impressed by what I have heard of them. I am similarly impressed by the large turnout for this lecture by Ben Shapiro, and that the thugs were so relatively few in number. I wish, though, that the majority hadn’t allowed themselves to be goaded into chanting back.

    acardnal: thanks for the link. “And the Left wonders why they lost the election?” Good one, Larry W2LJ.

    If I could add on to something Andrew D mentioned. After the French Revolution- and also after Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and Mao seized power- the new regime attacked many of their former collaborators (Hitler turned on the SA for example). These radicals at UWMadison would be a prime target if a totalitarian socialist regime arrives in the US. These local groups of the Permanently Aggrieved would then no longer be seen as comrades but as potential hostile challengers for power.

    Hopefully, though I’m not betting on it, these “students” will open a good book and realize the value of limited government and the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

    Watching the video, it looks like the officers did an excellent job at preventing an escalation. [They helped the escalation.]

    Madison, “77 square miles surrounded by reality.” One reason I live in a suburb.

    Madison is in Dane county. More than two-thirds vote Democrat here. In the state Presidential Primary they didn’t vote for Hillary. They voted for Sanders who won the Democratic vote. Kind of tells you how far to the left the Dems are in this state. Nevertheless, the Republicans won an even larger majority in both the state Assembly and Senate here!

    And they wonder why I drink.

    (X)MCCLXIIII wrote, “. . . wish, though, that the majority hadn’t allowed themselves to be goaded into chanting back.”

    This may have been a reflex action on the part of the students. You see, at UW football games large groups of students chant back and forth at each other using obscenities. (Use your imagination.) The university allows this – at least tacitly – and has not prohibited it. . . presumably in the spirit of free speech. On the other hand, recent political speech at a football game was disallowed because it involved a rope (and national news media attention) which they have now deemed to be a weapon in a new UW behavior policy.

    I am 53 and never in my life time has there been more racial division in the former USA. This all happened under the first black president in US history who is a democrat. We all wished him well.
    He made this bed and no one calls him on it!
    This was filmed in Madison WI which is headed by a democrat Paul Soglin. In the state of Wisconsin which is struggling to come back from a democratic lead governor under a new republican leadership.
    These people voted for this!
    What did they expect love and harmony?
    Peace and flowers?
    The democrats lead these people down this road for the past 60 years. They got what they wanted and deserve.
    What is worst it that the republicans let them get away with it.
    Obama. Hope and change? No he meant No hope and change.
    Never more divided since the Civil war hope and change.

    I got about 2 minutes into the video of Vicki McKenna. My pulse was going up just watching it.

    The few times I’ve had encounters with people I was concerned might be hostile, there was nowhere near the imbalance in physical size, nor number that she was facing, and I was not cornered. And yet, even having somebody your own size, by themselves, get in your face like that is extremely intimidating.

    I can’t imagine how she felt.

    acardnal: Good to hear that your fine state is tacking over to the starboard side of politics. I’ve been to the North Woods several times, fine people there and beautiful scenery. Wait…or was that beautiful people and fine scenery…Either way, the micro-breweries were excellent.

    Semper Gumby,
    Aye, aye mate.
