    Stephanie G. It‘s not about being booed, its about being able to get to the podium! Many of the ultra left are intolerant and it‘s either their way or the highway so get your facts straight!

    How comforting to know that our "Justice" Department is diligently working to ensure that civil rights are not expanded. And, Jerry, there is no civil right to not be booed when you give a speech. Equating the "plight" of a conservative speaker at a Berkeley speech to the civil rights of a group of people based on a sexual orientation they were born with is absurd and offensive. Your suggestion that the LGBT community is the intolerant group in America just reeks of straight, white, male privilege and would be very much at home as a comment on a racist and xenophobic alt right website. The current administration is the least tolerant administration of our lifetime, and is enabled by people like you.

    "Actively exposing people to discrimination"? If one looks to the University of California at Berkeley, you will see conservative speakers boo‘ed, and outright called "Haters", "Bigots", and where , may one ask , is the "inclusiveness and tolerance"? If an individual can not decide what they "are", how can they decide which end of the rifle is to be used to fire? It is quite apparent , that this LGBT or whatever, is the intolerant, the bigots , the haters , the "undesirable".
