Crushing of Dissent at Columbia

Last night at Columbia University, radical leftists provided a dramatic illustration of the atmosphere of intolerance for conservative views that permeates much of academia. The New York Sun has the details (link courtesy of Pajamas Media):

Students stormed the stage at Columbia University's Roone auditorium yesterday, knocking over chairs and tables and attacking Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the Minutemen, a group that patrols the border between America and Mexico.

Mr. Gilchrist and Marvin Stewart, another member of his group, were in the process of giving a speech at the invitation of the Columbia College Republicans. They were escorted off the stage unharmed and exited the auditorium by a back door.

Having wreaked havoc onstage, the students unrolled a banner that read, in both Arabic and English, "No one is ever illegal." As security guards closed the curtains and began escorting people from the auditorium, the students jumped from the stage, pumping their fists, chanting victoriously, "Si se pudo, si se pudo," Spanish for "Yes we could!"

Yes they did. And I'm sure the little fascists are quite proud of themselves for it. Powerline has the video if you want to see it for yourself.
