John Lewis at George Mason

Nick Provenzo has two reports (1, 2) on the rescheduled John Lewis talk at GMU (read the comments to get a feel for the intellectual level of the opponents). I'm glad that our local universities seem to do a much better job of policing events than did the GMU officials.

As always, many thanks to Dr. Lewis and the event organizers for their courage to stand up to the barbarians.

(BTW, given that the opposition always resorts to force and intimidation to suppress discussion, I think it's imperative that anyone who can attend such events do so to offer moral support. Failing to do so reduces both speakers' incentives to continue fighting and university officials' interest in hosting similar events.)
