Incredibly enough, from the looks of the aftermath of Milo Yiannopoulos’ visit to Rutgers University, it was a resounding success! After all, the students who so vigorously protested his right to speak sought “group therapy” sessions in the wake of that speech (SEE: http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/02/18/rutgers-students-hold-group-therapy-session-after-milo-yiannopoulos-visit/)
When Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos visited Rutgers University recently, his visit was greeted by fascistic protests that sought to silence him, as they have at other locales.

What a far cry from the late 1960s Leftist movements that defended, among other things, "Free speech for fascists."
YES, every view has an innate "right to be heard."
In disagreement, we can only offer up more and different information....NEVER seeking to suppress information. For instance, Communism has correctly been defined as "economic terrorism," but that DOESN'T justify the silencing of Communists.
Breitbart reports, “One student at the event told the Targum that they “broke down crying” after the event, while another reported that he felt “scared to walk around campus the next day.” According to the report, “many others” said they felt “unsafe” at the event and on campus afterwards.
“It is upsetting that my mental health is not cared about by the University,” said one student at the event. “I do not know what else to do for us to be heard for us to be cared about. I deserve an apology, everyone in this room deserves an apology.”
A number of organizations were at the event to offer support to the poor, traumatized students. These included Psychiatric Services, the Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance, and the Rutgers University Police. However, as far as we know, none of the protesting students were institutionalized, arrested for vandalism, or for assaulting the peaceful attendees of Milo’s talk with red paint.
In the past, Leftists actually physically fought for their warped, twisted views, I think it’s progress that the very best this new generation can seem to do is cry over them.
From here, that appears to be a good thing.
