Liberal comedian and political commentator Bill Maher: Cancelling Speakers on Campus Is The Liberal ‘Version of Book Burning’.
“Berkeley used to be the cradle of free speech, and now it’s just the cradle for f*cking babies … They invite someone to speak who’s not exactly what liberals want to hear, and they want to shut — I feel like this is the liberals’ version of book burning, and it’s got to stop.
“Howard Dean tweeted today about this, ‘Hate speech is not protected by the [F]irst [A]mendment.’ Yes, it is! Threats are not protected by the First Amendment. This why the Supreme Court said the Nazis could march in Skokie. They’re a hateful bunch, but that’s what the First Amendment means. It doesn’t mean, ‘Just shut up and agree with me.’”
