After the riot at Columbia University last week, Ross Kaminsky of Real Clear Politics offers this piece of wisdom I picked up at OpinionJournal.com:
It is a remarkable thing about liberals (or, at Columbia, outright leftists) in free societies: They are far more intolerant than conservatives. The protesters hate people who oppose illegal immigration. They accept the use of intimidation and violence to keep such people from speaking, then blame the victim for having been controversial. Conservatives generally don't hate people for their views even if those views are as wrong-headed as those of many (or, in my experience, most) Columbia students.
Can't add much to that.
