    Students at Brown University vehemently objected to a speech by conservative pundit Guy Benson, saying he enables “white supremacist and fascist ideas” by supporting free speech.

    The 18 students, calling themselves “A Collective of Students at Brown University,” wrote an open letter slamming Benson’s appearance at Brown Tuesday night, even preemptively arguing that the event violates the Student Code of Conduct.

    The letter first attacks Benson’s support for freedom of speech, specifically referencing his view that hate speech should not be limited by the government.

    “Based on our research into the speaker, we anticipate that Benson will make arguments in support of the freedom of any person to make hateful, oppressive, or damaging remarks based on their constitutionally protected right to free speech,” the students fume.

    The price of freedom is something the protected will never know.

    They don't even realize that from a different perspective their speech is hate speech.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Nope, because to them, any other perspective is both wrong and "hate speech."
