    I don't always agree with the guy but for the most part he is spot on, on a lot of things. Still, this is ludicrous how they ban him despite wanting him there to begin with all because of a minority group of people who have made threats.
    Voltaire said something cool once....

    "Both Shapiro and YAF hit back in statements provided to Minster. “It’s both pathetic and predictable that the University is happy to grant a veto on speakers to snowflake leftists so long as the leftists threaten violence,” Shapiro said. “This is how free speech dies: when people in power cave to the bullies rather than standing up for basic rights.”"

    Yeah, saw this trending this morning. The rise of the new fascist left continues.

    It seems like it used to, but lately there has been a giant paradigm shift.

    Communist systems are known for their thought policing. Considering it's the Marxist left that this is coming from it makes a lot more sense to look at say the Soviet system for analogies rather than a fascist one.

    disgusting. I think what Ben said is 100% true. Failure to stand up to social bullies is empowering these hate groups to spread their own agenda even further. How did we get here as a society where common sense and freedom of belief is shunned for a standard acceptance of the blame game and a select few remain virtually untouchable to any rebuke. It has to stop, and this is coming from someone that has never voted for a republican in his life.

    Gotta love the logic of the left.

    All of the Breitbart trolls that have shown up to b*tch about free speech, is missing the point “Given the experiences and security concerns that some other schools have had with Ben Shapiro speaking on their campuses, DePaul cannot agree to allow him to speak on our campus at this time,” That's because Shapiro's past appearances are marked with violence. Google "violence at Ben Shapiro's appearances", & you get a bunch of hits.

    The problem - in the first place - is lefty intolerance and violence. How can we fix that?

    No the problem is Shapiro attracts protests like sh1t attracts flies. If he wants to spread his hate, he can rent a hall, & pay for his own security.

    Pathetic. So violent leftist students riot when speakers they don't agree with are on campus, so the decision is not to crack down on those students but to give them what they want, which is to prevent people they disagree with from speaking? What kind of parallel universe have we entered?

    Absolutely shameful. I hope the school suffers financially due to this bad press, like Mizzou.

    DePaul is where Milo Yiannopoulos paid for security that stood down when the stage was overtaken by those two BLM shitbags.

    Sane people are staring to fight back, usually with their checkbook.

    I've heard that DePaul's enrollment is down. Much like the reaction at Mizzou, where they had to close two dorms because of the high number of students/potential students who left.

    Maybe things are different in the states, but at the University I went to in Canada, if you got caught fighting, you got expelled. If you got caught rioting, I imagine it would be the same. I don't understand schools that allow students to riot. If the school can't provide a safe learning environment for it's students, that school should be shut down imo.

    well you saw in that Milo clip there that the security guards didnt do anything to help them. I think they were afraid to get invovled because of the implications that would arise from a confrontation considering thats what their main sticking point is about. Its a catch 22 I guess. I love how Milo called them useless and pointed it out to the entire crowd. Milo is really awesome and I think with a guy like that, a lot of these bible thumping republicans could have a more favorable opinion regarding lbgt people.

    You are exactly right. This is probably the most worrisome thing I have seen in life and I was alive in the 80s when we were always worried about nukes.

    Said that a christian university is bowing down due to a threat of violence by assholes. I guess they would have Jesus just shut up too and fall in line with the powers that be. Fucking hypocrites.

    I have listened to a lot of ben and he is the least racist speaker I have ever heard. It is just like these butthurt crybabies to try to shut him down.

    Prepare for more of this if hillary is elected.

    I don't think you need to specify "shitbags" when talking about BLM. It is a given. Saying BLM is the same as saying dumb racist piece of shit shitbags blm.

    So American universities can add anti-semitism to their on campus agendas. Should fit in quite nicely with their Anti-free speech movement.

    It's an extremely tough battle. These people are beyond insane and will use any tactic. It has to be so damn exhausting trying to fight the progressive hordes.
