Matt Teitelbaum, former President at College Democrats of Maryland
The Huffington Post
June 5, 2017

Quote:
At Evergreen State College in Washington, the dangerous authoritarian streak of college-aged, left-wing extremists is being exposed in disturbing detail. In recent weeks, social justice activists demanded that white students refrain from attending class or being present on campus on a predetermined day, in order to appropriately, from their perspective, observe the traditional ďDay of Absence.Ē ...

These so called ďactivistsĒ are not interested in dialogue ó one of them said exactly that in a video of their confrontation. They are only interested in their political agenda being enacted at all costs, without any negotiation with dissenters. To me, that mentality is inherently illiberal and undemocratic. It is close enough to fascism to warrant use of the label ďfascistĒ at this point...

I am no conservative. I am the former president of the College Democrats of Maryland. However, this insanity is unrepresentative of true liberalism. Liberals who donít call out these illiberal fascists are complicit in their growing influence and impunity...

I guess I am a lot more tolerant of extremist views than a lot of folks.

What rational person would be attracted to ideas of say white supremacy who were not already believers in their own white superiority? So why would I care if Richard Spencer were speaking to these folks?

People do not wake up one morning and rationally choose to be bigots? They were environmentally raised to be bigots.

I'll say it again .... ignorance is the enemy and education will defeat it

Oh please, we could call them out all day long and call them what they are (FAILED liberals who let loose their inner fascist) and it wouldn't matter.
It would never get a second's worth of airtime.
CON-servatives are overjoyed at the existence of these brats because they get to paint ALL LIBERALS with this brush.
This group is Horseshoe Theory writ large.

Some do, but I'm not one of them.
