    itd always the liberals who get violent. They don’t believe in free speech. The proof is “safe spaces” on campus, So called safe spaces are not free speech zones, its a place for snowflakes to hide from free speech.

    Have you put it together yet? the libs are attacking both the first and second amendments.

    It appears if you can’t make it into UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, you stuck going to state. So it’s not surprising that this lower form of life would act in this manner.
