Gotta love the one on one audience exchange (the right idea wins)

Naturally this embarrassing story goes national before the local media even makes a peep.

So to no big surprise conservative author Don Feder’s hate crime speech this evening at Umass, the flagship of higher public education in Massachusetts, never got off the ground. Well...more like that Airbus A320 that sort of, briefly, got off the ground and then crashed into the Hudson River.
“The way to counter bad speech is with good speech. “ ACLU
And if the Justice for Jason crowd had brought in a black speaker expounding on racist hoonkies hiding under every bed, would the conservatives on campus (not that there are all too many) have interrupted, harassed and shut down his presentation?
"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it," Evelyn Beatrice Hall
If the purported 400 protesters did not want to hear Feder's opinions, then they could have simply stayed home and played hackey sack. They trampled--in a hateful way--his First Amendment right to free speech and the rights of those who came to actually hear his presentation.
Got to wonder what they are teaching in Umass classrooms these days (at least the ones those nitwits attend.)
“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.” Benjamin Franklin
