    It is also dangerous. Our liberties are worth fighting for.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of states to propose amendments.

    He would be correct. Coulter's freedom of speech is not being squashed by the government, therefore, there is no violation. There is no expectation of freedom of speech outside the government's limitation.

    I would have thought constitutionalists and those who claim to hold the constitution close to their heart would know this already.

    The state has the obligation to provide safe crowd control. They have to strike a balance between that and free speech. This is exactly, not kinda, like the yelling fire falsely in a crowded theatre standard in the supreme court free speech rulings is all about.

    Except it's protesters yelling fire by getting violent.

    Thus my question why are they "provide safe crowd control" by stopping her instead of those breaking the law?

    Universities, public and private, championed free speech in the past. This new trend of violent protests shutting off debate is contrary to the entire purpose of the university.
