more liberal tolerance on campus

I wonder when was the last time a liberal speaker on an American college campus required police protection in order to save him from a violent conservative mob.

Well... How about Kent state when the national guard shot at those liberals and killed someone ? A little different, I know.

They killed more than one, correct?

So you have to go back more than 50 years, and find a scenario that's fairly different (but still a good one for you to cite). At Kent State, the kids who were attacked weren't just giving a peaceful speech at a lecturn, I presume they were protesting fairly aggressively? Or were they killed just for speaking? Can't claim to be an expert on that one.

Where do these people get off, patting themselves on the back for being "liberal"?

They burned down the ROTC building and were throwing rocks . Not that that justifies being shot at and killed but they weren't peaceful .
The governor at the time was a moderate republican, not sure he would be called a conservative .

Correct, nowhere near justification for using deadly force, but they did certainly invite an aggressive, physical response. Nowhere near the same thing as one person giving a speech.

If liberals disagree with these people, why can't they engage in debate, and explain why their ideas are superior? Here's the answer...they know they can't win a debate on the merits of their ideas, so they usually do one of 2 things...either they engage in riot to end the debate, or they accuse the conservative of racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, or some other kind of hate. They don't respond to what conservative sare saying, they respond to what they claim conservatives are saying.

Oh, it happens to most provocative speakers, on both sides? How about answering my question, and give me a few specific, accurate exmples of liberal speakers who needed a police escort to flee campus?

It's so easy to say "it happens to both sides". How about proof? For conservative speakers, I can give you as many examples as you'd like.
