If you want to really get people's attention, you should post Jonathan Pye's 'How and Why' post-election speech -- which is much harsher on the left, much more entertaining, and suggests that the demonization of Trump supporters pushes them further into ugliness. I'm not sure if it can be posted without triggering the 'spam alert', but you can easily find it on YouTube.

I'm of a different opinion than Jonathan, but I ultimately agree that Trump supporters should have the unfettered and unrestricted freedom to make their case for why Trump is good for America (or otherwise defend their viewpoint). I've been waiting, waiting, waiting for someone to make a good case for Trump, but I've yet to see anything passing as anything other than justification for Trump's behavior. Which is The Mooch's bread and butter.

So in conclusion, banning university speakers is wrong. At the same time, suggesting that the criticism is unjustified is equally wrong.

I think they should be able to make their case wherever. I think the issue I have with many of these "deabtes" is even if evidence is lacking. Folks do not really change their mind too often.

This is true for Trump supporters or really most supporters of anything that they value. People rarely if ever change their minds. In particularly, most people react to facts counter to their beliefs by doubling down.

Ironically, and I am picking on Trump supporters because I remember the polls, while many Trump supporters know he is lying. They do not care. What does one do to counter such things? It is not a lack of information at that point. It is a lack of caring and an indifference. So long as it is their guy.

That is beyond what our governmental system is meant to be based on. It is even cultish.

Granted, not all are like that, but it was a striking result.
