Mob Rule Continues on College Campuses
The hysteria that met David Horowitz and various campus speakers as part of last week's Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week was, unfortunately, all too common. College campuses, far from being a setting for the free exchange of ideas once imagined, have now been overtaken by leftist and Islamist student (and otherwise) groups bent on silencing all viewpoints that don't match their own. Hiding under the banner of moral superiority, these group's have adopted the fascistic tactics of Brown Shirts.
While much has been written at Frontpage Magazine and, to a lesser extent, college publications about last week's disruptions, the mainstream media continues to ignore the elephant in the room. And college administrators and parents are, largely, doing the same.
As long as this state of affairs, which I dubbed "mob rule on college campuses" in a column and follow-up blog post last year, is allowed to continue, expect it to get worse. It seems we have ceded the day to the bullies.
