Free speech continues to be an issue on college campuses and it is almost entirely the fault of the far left.
It has just become routine for left wing students to shout down and silence speakers they don’t like.
At Binghamton University, conservative economist Art Laffer was unable to give a scheduled speech this week because of a protest.

VIDEO: Unruly campus activists shut down speech by ‘father of supply-side economics’ Arthur Laffer
Rowdy and aggressive activists shut down a speech Monday night at the State University of New York at Binghamton by the famed “father of supply-side economics” Arthur Laffer, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in June.
Various videos of the incident show dozens of students yelling and disrupting the lecture, with one man with a microphone declaring “we are tired of being oppressed and we are tired of getting murdered by this administration,” referring to the Trump administration.
The speaker goes on to call incarcerations “the modern day slavery of our time” as a fellow activist hands him a bright spotlight that he shines toward the front of the room, apparently where Dr. Laffer is standing. As supporters of the economist move to block the light, many in the crowd erupt with laughter.

Absolute madness at a Binghamton University event right now at an event Arthur Laffer was scheduled to speak at. Laffer spoke maybe five words before students started protesting. pic.twitter.com/hopCwzKiqy

I’m disgusted by the chaos we’ve witnessed erupt across the @binghamtonu campus over the past several days. Our college campuses should be places where ideas and peaceful discourse can be shared freely by all individuals, no matter their differing politics or opinions. pic.twitter.com/75QENYMlRv

Art Laffer was recently awarded a medal by President Trump.
That is probably part of what triggered these snowflake students.
