Description

Conservative students don't feel like their ideas are welcome on campus. So they're fighting back. We go to Nebraska, where one skirmish spins out of control.

Why does the left always equate right wing with Facism? It seems to me that the left feels comfortable with that assertion, and if so...can we equate the left as Socialist? They make it sound that since they're "for the people" they somehow have an altruistic utopian moral agenda centered in equality. Maybe it would be a good idea to read a little more about the history of Socialism.

I'm a registered Republican but this made me realize it's a party of hate and their agenda scares me. The conservative party has been hyjacked by haters. Even the very innocent seeming girl tabling has caused so much damage and has now allowed hate to grow. I'm out Republican party.

I share Courtney's sentiments, but I think if she had just sat down and talked to Katie - an impressionable young woman. You get more bees with honey. We can't respond to the Right with the tactics they use - makes us no better than them. All we're doing is adding fuel to the fire - we're giving them what they want. Choose love. Always. For everyone - even if we disagree vehemently with them. They're still human beings.

Maybe just once a liberal can show some restraint and not shouting down opinions of others in their typical vulgar manner

The conference sounds far too much like a Nazi propaganda session. Not that they were advocating Nazi views, rather they sound one step away from outright shooting people who disagree.
