    Yes because Clinton doesn't have a dirty history that trump can use
    Her history is by far her biggest downfall. Whilst some may be drawn to the fact that she's been a fairly important and successful politician, many see her past as a clear warning why not to vote for her.

    Anybody else enjoying the online backlash against DePaul? Now watch the liberals go cry with the shoe being on the other foot.

    It's amazing how the faculty are standing up saying they support assault and the apology issued attacks the speaker and misrepresents his views.

    Something along the lines of supporting the assault because Milos makes them feel (can't remember the specific word but it was one of those always bandied about by that crowd)

    Basically he made them uncomfortable was the crux and they were entitled to defend their safe space.

    It's like they don't realise that the room was the college republicans safe space.

    The speech what opened it at the beginning that announced milo makes the point 'it is easier to come out as gay than a republican'

    Clinton's has already pretty much been done to death, and Trump's is going to be worse in the eyes of the ordinary voter.

    People who simply shout others down shouldn't and indeed don't deserve to be at university - as I've often said, university is a place for listening to viewpoints other than your own and then challenging them in a calm and mature manner; it's the bedrock of scholarly debate. If so-called 'activists' can't cope with that, then they should not be at university at all.

    It seems that the faculty taught them to behave like that.

    There is a petition to ban social justice being taught as it currently is because of the increase of these types of incidents around at the moment.

    Some of it is the fault of universities, especially this safe space nonsense, but a lot is to do with social attitudes these days, children brought up like little princes and princesses, taught that they are always right and ill-equipped to deal with the idea that they can also be wrong and that the world does not revolve around them.

    The fact that faculty members come out in support of the behaviour the other night is a problem and considering that the staff member said when she met elder ward he needed polishing shows the attitude of some people in these departments and it isn't just the USA this is a problem, it happens in a lot of universities.

    Absolutely and it is happening in a lot of universities which is extremely depressing. What makes it worse is the following:

    Mine used to be, but then Milo was effectively banned by the SU so between that and the cause of him coming in the first place got dropped to amber.

    Still not too bad since the trend seems to be towards global red

    It's quite amazing how this much more tolerant society is somehow losing free speech.

    My uni is only green because it doesn't do things like invite milo.

    It's seems people's opinions<my feels
