Long live the glorious rebellion!

Fans of Rashômon will appreciate this.

First, an account from the Libertas folks of what happened when two protestors tried to shut down David Horowitz's speech at the screening of the award-winning film, Brainwashed 201, at the Liberty Film Festival last week
We also had an attempted disruption opening night, when two left-wing protesters rushed the stage and attempted to attack David Horowitz. Fortunately, our very own Jason Apuzzo, plus volunteer Daniel Crandall, Chris Cook, and several others got to them first and dragged them out of the auditorium kicking and screaming. Ironically enough, David Horowitz was speaking about the need for free speeech and academic freedom at the very moment the protesters ran up on the stage shouting “Fascists have no right to speak! You have no right to speak! We don’t want your right wing **** here!” etc. etc.
Now, an account of the same disruption from another point of view.

The latter reminded me of something. Anyone remember the revolutionary cockroaches from Bloom County?
Long live the glorious cockroach rebellion against the great suburban bourgeois oppressor swine-pig!!
I hate revolutionary jargon.

Wow. The indymedia article was so badly written I had a hard time following it, beyond the "We hate those that have other viewpoints!"

Oops, I think that was too coherent. "We Hate! Others with. Other viewpoints that grand wizards kkk dirtbags! ENEMY OF HUMANITY!!"

Remember, free speech is for those that are enlightened! Conservatives need not apply...

When you haven't got a real basis for your gripes, you end up with gibberish like that article.

When you haven't got any ideas of your own, you have to suppress those who do.
