Universities have consistently underestimated the power of a furious public. At the same time, they’ve overestimated the power of student activists, who have only as much influence as administrators give them.

That didn’t go far enough for fellow Democrats who called on her to rebuke the demonstration.
“It’s very disappointing and uncalled for. If Rep. Abrams does not rebuke what happened, she will lose a lot of support,” said state Rep. Scott Holcomb, who is neutral in the race. “This isn’t how Democrats want this primary race to be conducted.”
Evans joins the ranks of other Democrats who have been booed or heckled at Netroots events: Nancy Pelosi was booed and heckled in 2013, Black Lives Matter protesters interrupted Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley’s speech in 2015.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Netroots of the democratic party: bigoted, intolerant, impolite, immature, ugly, thuggish, incoherent.
If this is what being a democrat looks like, Georgians will say “thanks but no thanks.”
Great op-ed on the destruction of the personal beliefs and feelings at the hands of far left minions. It appears those on the far left have replaced faith in a higher being with their own post-modern illiberal religion which can’t consist of those who value free thinking. Little do they know that these continuing infringements on peoples consciences could have dire effects in the future when the inevitable backlash hits. The fact that a pretty liberal individual who happens to have a belief in God was consistently hounded by the left and press while other candidates were not having their faith questioned is appalling. I hope Mr. Farron is able to find some peace now that he is no longer in the crucible of 21st century post modern politics.
