38. Please. For every instance of this
I could cite a number of protestors from the last 8 years who did the same thing. Campus speakers with a right slant are routinely shouted down by the left. I wouldn't tolerate republicans trying to brand all protesters as being extremists mobs egged on by the democrats. So I don't tolerate this move.

"They can dissent - but using tactics that *only* aim at rattling speakers and stopping other citizens from having discourse is Un-American."

I assume then any protestors that say, insinuate our current president should be assassinated would fall under that category? Or disrupting any sort of meeting where they are not welcome? They are all extremists mobs connected to some high seated authority? Some people seem to quickly forget the last 8 years.

2007: left: these protesters are patriotic and are only using their freedom of speech!
right: no they are terrorists out to disrupt government through anti-democratic methods!
2009: left: no they are terrorists out to disrupt government through anti-democratic methods!
right: these protesters are patriotic and are only using their freedom of speech!

How soon we forget.
