Georgetown Shoutdown: This is what the left looks like

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 9, 2019

Still not convinced the University of Wisconsin System needs a policy protecting free expression on its campuses?

Well, look no further than Georgetown University.

On Monday, a small group of protesters shouted down Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan. The White House official was invited to talk about immigration law and policy at an event hosted by Georgetown University Law Center.

The leftists wouldn’t have it.

They repeatedly disrupted the event, chanting anti-ICE slogans such as, “Children are under attack. What do we do? Stand up and fight back!”

One protester held up a sign declaring, “Hate is not Normal,” as his fellow demonstrators trained their hatred on McAleenan and the people in his agency.

It was clear event organizers had lost control early, and had lost it for good.

“All right, that is enough,” a mousy law school official said, attempting to shout over the din. “Could you please have some respect for this audience who came here to listen to this speaker?”

The room had lost all respect.

Tired of the nonsense, McAleenan walked out after giving the protesters several opportunities to pipe down.

“As a career law enforcement professional, I have dedicated my career to protecting the rights of free speech and the values we hold dear in America from all threats,” the acting Homeland Security director said.

“Bullshit,” a demonstrator shouted back. And the protesters resumed their chanting.

Wisconsin campuses have endured similar disruptions in recent years. The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents is finalizing rules for a policy that calls for expelling students who attempt to disrupt or science free expression on UW System campuses.
