Re: “At UNC, student protesters crash Tom Tancredo's party

All I can say is that William Gheen is skilled at using rhetoric to turn what was really a group of concerned students protesting to stop the spread of hate on their campus into a group of tyrants and radicals obstructing the right to free speech. In no way is the brick through the window during Tom Tancredos speech analogous to the hate, intolerance, and savagery responsible for bricks through the windows of black churches and Jewish storefronts. Tom Tancredo is being opposed not because of his skin color or religious belief, but because his ideas and political views are founded on hate and intolerance for others. If you look back at history, it always begins with the spread of the idea, and once thats sufficiently ingrained, people will then begin to act. Imagine if there were protesters at all of Hitlers speeches and meetings. Nazi propaganda would not have spread as easily and as quickly as it did. I believe in free speech, but I dont believe in the spread of hate.
