No one needed stuffed animals

From the Facebook page of Steve Horwitz:

Isn’t it interesting that Bernie Sanders (and GOOD FOR HIM for doing so) can give a speech at the religiously conservative Liberty University, where his views are absolutely noxious to those students and where being pro-choice effectively makes him a supporter of mass murder in their eyes, yet no one protested, and no one said they were unsafe, and no one was triggered, and no one needed stuffed animals to feel comfortable with this wicked man on campus?

There’s something seriously wrong with the students at elite colleges when Liberty University is a more liberal, open, tolerant, and civil place, not to mention having students who are better able to engage with intellectual diversity, than the Ivy League or the top liberal arts colleges or the top public universities.

[Yes, maybe those students are just more passive in general, but if you read accounts of the speech, they actually asked good questions and engaged him intellectually. You also don’t see THAT enough when the roles are reversed.]
