The College of William & Mary”s Black Lives Matter students shut down an ACLU speaker who was trying to discuss free speech last week. They declared that liberalism is “white supremacy” and were angry that the focus wasn’t on the fake police crimes against Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.
They were also angry that the ACLU didn’t keep the white supremacist groups from marching in Charleston, Virginia.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a left-wing organization like theirs, was trying to speak to students about the First Amendment with another organization.
Students would not let Claire Guthrie Gastañaga, the ACLU’s Virginia executive director, speak as they chanted psychotically for about five minutes.
When she tried to speak, they would chant, “the oppressed are not impressed,” “shame, shame, shame, shame,” and “liberalism is white supremacy….”
