A Black Lives Matter Activist group at The College of William & Mary shut down an ACLU Free Speech event on the basis that “liberalism is white supremacy.” …
The event, which was titled “Students and the First Amendment,” was a lecture being offered by ACLU staffer and W&M alumna Claire Gastañaga.
The student group live-streamed their protest effort on Facebook. The video shows the students storming the stage shortly after the lecture began. For nearly 20 minutes, the students chanted, drowning out the speaker. “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too,” “the oppressed are not impressed,” and “shame, shame, shame, shame” were amongst the chants used by the protesters. In addition, they chanted “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution,” and “Liberalism is white supremacy.”
Identity group politics is turning on its master. White US liberals restarted and fanned the flames of identity group politics in the West, for their presumed electoral advantage. But now they are starting to fall victims to the monster they created. Keep it up BLM, this might get interesting.
