Campus protesters quash Minuteman speech

Storm stage in near riot, forcing security to whisk away founder Gilchrist

Posted: October 5, 2006
1:00 p.m. Eastern

Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist was attacked by angry, violent protesters last night who stormed the stage during his speech at Columbia University in New York City, forcing an abrupt end to the event. An African-American member of the Minuteman board who spoke prior to Gilchrist was taunted with the "n-word," according to WND columnist Jerome Corsi.

Corsi had been scheduled to follow Gilchrist with a speech of his own, but after university security personnel whisked the Minuteman leader offstage, the New York Young Republican Club meeting was shut down. Gilchrist told WND the "violent outburst is yet another indication that those who support illegal immigration are happy to use communist tactics in their intolerant determination to prevent the Minutemen from exercising their First Amendment rights."

A protester who spoke anonymously to the independent student newspaper Columbia Spectator said the stage takeover was planned. "I don't feel like we need to apologize or anything. It was fundamentally a part of free speech. ... The Minutemen are not a legitimate part of the debate on immigration."

Prior to the event, a group of protestors estimated by New York police to number around 200 assembled with placards and a loudspeaker to denounce Gilchrist and the Minutemen. Slogans on the placards included, "Workers of the world unite! Same struggle, same fight!," and "Minutemen, Nazis, KKK! Racists, fascists, go away!"

About 20 protesters managed to momentarily take control of the stage during Gilchrist's speech, with loud shouts and fists thrust in anger. Security fought to restrain them and managed to rush Gilchrist backstage before he could be assaulted, according to Corsi.

Corsi told WND the protestors were "angrier than I have seen before." The melee at Columbia suggests the "pro-illegal immigration forces are moving in a more violent direction," he said. "The street protests last spring didn't convince Congress to pass an amnesty," Corsi commented, "so maybe the next wave of their protest activity will turn more violent, in their frustration that the U.S. public is not convinced they should be allowed to live and work in the U.S. in open defiance of our rule of law."

After taking over the stage, protesters unrolled a banner that read, in both Arabic and English, "No one is ever illegal."

According to the New York Sun, as security guards began escorting people from the auditorium, students jumped from the stage, pumping their fists, chanting victoriously, "Si se pudo, si se pudo," Spanish for "Yes we could!"

Marvin Stewart, an African-American minister and member of the Minuteman Project's board of directors, was the first speaker at the Columbia event. Protesters in the crowd harassed Stewart with shouts, and toward the end of his speech, some in the audience stood silently and turned their backs to him.

Stewart expressed dismay at the audience's intolerance. "If this is how low we have sunk in U.S. higher education, I am deeply concerned about our future," he said. "Don't any Columbia University professors teach these students the importance of free speech under the First Amendment?"

The Sun report said that when Stewart referred to the Declaration of Independence's self-evident truth that "All men are created equal," audience members called him a racist, a sellout and a black white supremacist. One student's demand that Stewart speak in Spanish drew thundering applause and brought the protesters to their feet, the New York paper said. At that point, the protesters turned their backs to Stewart and drowned him out by chanting, "Wrap it up, wrap it up!"

Stewart appeared unfazed, however, and with a smile, said, "No wonder you don't know what you're talking about."

The Columbia Spectator said Gilchrist and the president of the College Republicans, Chris Kulawik, eventually called Stewart off the stage. "I clearly had the false assumption that I was at an Ivy League school," Kulawik said as he introduced the main speaker.

"Who's a racist now?" said Gilchrist, putting an arm around Stewart. "I love the first amendment!" he shouted. "You're doing a great job, kids. I'm going to have more fun with this than with my prepared speech." But before he could get much farther, the campus paper said, two students stepped on stage with a banner.

Corsi said that when university personnel screened audience members as they entered, a number of eggs were confiscated.

Yet another peaceful demonstration from the tolerant, democracy loving leftists of Ivy League schools. This is just another good example of the kind of violent brainwashing that occurs in higher education. If right wingers had done this at a pro-immigration speech, they'd have all been arrested and probably expelled.

I'd like to see one Dem, one lib, explain this unconstitutional, illogical "reasoning".

It's a JOKE.

psssh. Abbey don't you get it? The illegals with the backing of pro-illegals have much more of a say than those that want to adhere to laws. Clear enough?

Yeah, I know. I'm just beyond disgusted by the hypocrisy. I want to see if anyone will actually defend this with some semblance of reason, logic and constitutionality.

Can't and won't be done. The left will never acknowledge those of us on the right that are more than 'pro immigration' just not illegal immigrants.

What I'd like to know is WHERE IS THE ACLU?
Aren't they supposed to be the big supporters of FREE SPEECH?

Seems like there should be a lot of ACLU supporters around that campus since Columbia is a major source for ACLU attorneys. Wonder where they all are? :huh:

The whole issue, and that it even IS an issue is absurd to me. The US is a sovereign nation. We have borders, and laws governing those borders. ANyone who crosses those borders without doing so legally is a criminal, period.

How much simpler could it be?

Can't be any simpler. But they don't care. These protestors are the Al Qaeda of America. They are the domestic terrorists that are out to destroy America.

At Columbia, Students Attack Minuteman Founder

By ELIANA JOHNSON - Staff Reporter of the Sun
October 5, 2006

Students stormed the stage at Columbia University's Roone auditorium yesterday, knocking over chairs and tables and attacking Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the Minutemen, a group that patrols the border between America and Mexico.

Mr. Gilchrist and Marvin Stewart, another member of his group, were in the process of giving a speech at the invitation of the Columbia College Republicans. They were escorted off the stage unharmed and exited the auditorium by a back door.

Having wreaked havoc onstage, the students unrolled a banner that read, in both Arabic and English, "No one is ever illegal." As security guards closed the curtains and began escorting people from the auditorium, the students jumped from the stage, pumping their fists, chanting victoriously, "Si se pudo, si se pudo," Spanish for "Yes we could!"

The Minuteman Project, an organization of volunteers founded in 2004 by Mr. Gilchrist, aims to keep illegal immigrants out of America by alerting law enforcement officials when they attempt to cross the border. The group uses fiery language and unorthodox tactics to advance its platform. "Future generations will inherit a tangle of rancorous, unassimilated, squabbling cultures with no common bond to hold them together, and a certain guarantee of the death of this nation as a harmonious ‘melting pot,'" the group's Web site warns.

The pandemonium that ensued as the evening's keynote speaker took the stage was merely the climax of protest that brewed all week. A number of campus groups, including the Chicano caucus, the African-American student organization, and the International Socialist organization, began planning their protests early this week when they heard that the Minutemen would be arriving on campus.

The student protesters, who attended the event clad in white as a sign of dissent, booed and shouted the speakers down throughout. They interrupted Mr. Stewart, who is African-American, when he referred to the Declaration of Independence's self-evident truth that "All men are created equal," calling him a racist, a sellout, and a black white supremacist.

A student's demand that Mr. Stewart speak in Spanish elicited thundering applause and brought the protesters to their feet. The protesters remained standing, turned their backs on Mr. Stewart for the remainder of his remarks, and drowned him out by chanting, "Wrap it up, wrap it up!" Mr. Stewart appeared unfazed by their behavior. He simply smiled and bellowed, "No wonder you don't know what you're talking about."

"These are racist individuals heading a project that terrorizes immigrants on the U.S.-Mexican border," Ryan Fukumori, a Columbia junior who took part in the protest, told The New York Sun. "They have no right to be able to speak here."

The student protesters "rush to vindicate themselves with monikers like ‘liberal' and ‘open-minded,' but their actions, their attempt to condemn the Minutemen without even hearing what they have to say, speak otherwise," the president of the Columbia College Republicans, Chris Kulawik, said. On campus, the Republicans' flyers advertising the event were defaced and torn down.

The College Republicans expressed their concern about the lack of free speech for opposing viewpoints on the Columbia campus in the wake of the evening's events. "We've often feared that there's not freedom of speech at Columbia for more right-wing views — and that was proven tonight," the executive director of the Columbia College Republicans, Lauren Steinberg, said.

The Minutemen's arrival at Columbia drew protesters from around the city as well. An hour before Messrs. Stewart and Mr. Gilchrist took the stage, rowdy protests began outside the auditorium on Broadway, where activists chanted, "Hey, hey, ho, ho, the Minutemen have got to go!"
