Liberal speaker shouted down at conservative Whittier College. Why do rightists hate free speech?

A disturbing report from FIRE (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education) describes the shout-down of California Attorney General, Xavier Becerra and California State Assembly Leader Ian Calderon by Pro-Trump, MAGA hat-wearing protesters. Disruptors shouted slogans like: “Build that wall,” “lock him up,” “respect our president,” and “American first.” Becerra’s question and answer session with Calderon was severely disturbed and cut short as a result.

  • Those more on the right, take facts as offensive because their beliefs are deeply held and rarely flexible in light of new facts. It the definition of conservative.
    Deeply held beliefs rely on emotional thinking over rational thinking.

  • Sounds like both parties exercised their right to free speech.

    Free speech protects you from prosecution. It does not protect you from having other's countering your speech with their speech.
