No free speech at Catholic college

Breitbart reports:
After a tepid apology to college Republicans last week after disruptive protests and threats of violence forced the early cancellation of their event with Breitbart senior editor Milo Yiannopoulos, the President of DePaul University has released a statement kowtowing to left-wing activists on campus.

The President, Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, has faced a week of pressure from left-wing activists after he released a statement apologizing to the college Republicans for the disruption of their event, and criticizing protesters for their actions (which included grabbing a microphone from the event’s host, waving it in Milo’s face, and threatening violence).

In the wake of his apology (which included a condemnation of Milo as a “self-serving provocateur”), Terry Smith, a Distinguished Professor of Law at DePaul authored an article in the campus newspaper calling on him to step down or be fired, due to, among other things, betraying “marginalized” students by allowing the Yiannopoulos event to take place on campus.
The DePaul President has now resigned.

You would think that a private Catholic university could have a guest speaker with some non-leftist opinions. I have seen a couple of videos of this Milo character, and I did not see anything particularly offensive. He is not even very right-wing. He is some sort of gay anti-feminist.

Our colleges are in a sorry state. I think even the Catholic schools are run by (((lizard people))). Holtschneider's statements do not even sound human. The Pope is also suspect.
