    i say less collusion and more interaction, and you can't prevent interaction unless you somehow say that when you try to make $$ you lose all your constitutional rights.

    Meaning people throw around the word collusion to much without actually meaning what the word means.

    Not all interaction is collusion.

    Colleges don't necessarily need to facilitate every speaker with campus space and funds, because obviously those things are in limited supply. They should NOT, however, be actively blocking speakers people want to hear.

    And we're so far beyond "peaceful protests" at this point, we can't even see 'em from where we stand.

    Lefties believe that the right "incites" them to violence merely by existing. If they would just stop having those pesky dissenting opinions, leftists wouldn't be "forced" to riot and loot and beat people up.

    I think fair advertising is a reasonable thing to require, given that we require it from every other business in America.

    Exactly. I hear incitement given as an excuse for violent behavior, but conservative speakers on campus are not advocating violence.

    I think it depends. If the speaker is an agitator and requires high levels of security - should colleges have to support that? It's a fine line, but they absolutely support a diversity of voices.

    The security wouldn't be needed if left wing nuts knew how to behave in public.
