Univ. Of Florida President: Taxpayers Just Spent The Equivalent Of 100 Tuitions To Subsidize Hate Speech

"At UF, which had nearly 1,000 state and local law-enforcement officers on campus on Thursday, the tab exceeded $600,000, the equivalent of nearly 100 students’ annual tuition. In effect, taxpayers heavily subsidized racist speech rather than education or research."

    No such thing as selective free speech.

  2. So, here’s the thing . . . that money was spend because some people threatened violence. I may not agree with the speaker (I don’t), but the problem I see is not with him.

    The problem I see is that certain groups currently feel justified in resorting to violence. Imagine, instead, if this guy gave a speech and everyone but the crazies ignored him (mentioned as a possible scenario in the above piece.) Better yet, bring in another speaker to counter the arguments.

    We (rightly) decried conservatives threatening and perpetrating violence on behalf of their beliefs (abortion is one) but appear to condone the exact same behavior when “we agree with it.” I think that on this point, the far left is doing more harm than good.

    Think about that . . . of course we can do violence; we’re in the right! And then, we want to blame the person who came to speak for the fact that we have to protect him from our own.

    Sorry. I don’t blame the Spencers of this world, and the article is right . . . by acting like whining angry babies prone to break things if we don’t get our way, all we are doing is feeding ammunition to the other side. For that, I blame the notion that people are entitled to not being offended.

    • Heisenberg hates Trump and all affiliates….The US has thrown away about a Trillion $ on Afghanistan..that seems to be a pretty reliable figure…That is precisely 6.9 million 4 year scholarships to Stanford..that’s 4 YEAR SCHOLARSHIPS…..so kiss my ass Florida…and the alt right..hate speech supremacists aren’t responsible for any US soldier deaths… So..what is a US soldier death worth????

  3. $600.00 to stand around for a day and look official.
