Black Lives Matter Students Shut Down ACLU’s Free Speech Event

The American Civil Liberties Union held an event at the College of William & Mary titled, “Students and the First Amendment,” and ironically, a handful of Black Lives Matter students hijacked the event and prevented the invited guest from speaking.

According to, the students took over the stage minutes after Claire Gastañaga, a W & M alum, began speaking. Gastañaga tried to demonstrate some woke inclusiveness by welcoming the disruption as an example of the very rights she was there to discuss, but the students weren’t there for a discussion.

They began drowning her out with chants of “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too!” and “The oppressed are not impressed!” and “Shame, shame, shame, shame.” Not too catchy, that last one. They also chanted, revealingly, “The revolution will not uphold the Constitution” and incoherently, “Liberalism is white supremacy!”

    A few cops with truncheons could readily deal with this problem. There just needs to be the will from Administration.

      except for all the MASSIVELY LARGE number of black-on-black murders


      There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.

      Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.

        I stand corrected.

        I would expect that publicizing this sort of information ranks right up there with eating out of the catbox when it comes to the mainstream media.

    The more the cops allow these BLM thugs to trod on the 1st amendment, the bloodier it will be when the citizenry finally rise up and settle it themselves. It appears to me that the lefts leadership actually want a civil war believing that they will be unaffected as they use it to their political advantage. The leadership of all the major political parties in western democracies are so disconnected from the people that they are supposed to be serving that bloodshed is almost inevitable.

    We need separate institutions.

    There is a large number of radical leftist organisation funded by globalist billionaires that fund these groups such as BLM, Antifa, etc., yet even this administration turns a blind eye. Prosecute the funders, the head, and the body will die.

    Funny. But think about what happened. A group of people whose beliefs are constantly changing and at any moment are willing to demand that everyone respect and adopt those beliefs. Not mob rule but rule by the whim of the mob.

    You’re/We’re never going to win this contest unless people will cross lines.

    If I’ve insulted “minorities” good; I meant to.
