The revolution eats its own

Lib Students Shout Down ... a Liberal. By Bernard Goldberg |
Excerpt: Hothouse flowers threw another hissy fit on a college campus recently. But this time it was different. This time the target in their progressive crosshairs wasn't some conservative bogeyman whose views were deemed unacceptable and so had to be shouted down. This time left-wing students, at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, went after the ACLU, an organization that champions all sorts of liberal causes and no one is calling right-wing. Call me a bad person but it's fun to watch the left devour its own. And here's something else to giggle about: The ACLU speaker who was silenced by the progressive mob was on campus to speak about ... free speech on campus. (“A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel.” ― Robert Frost. With notably few exceptions such as Alan Dershowitz, liberal leaders have been AWOL opposing the anti-free speech actions of the militant left and the violence of antifa and its allies. Remember the Mensheviks? They were too reasonable and sure of themselves to effectively oppose the Bolsheviks. Yours truly, Larry Greenberg)
