The modern dark age: Despite Cornell University’s refusal to agree to their demands and cancel the lecture, a mob of students prevented her from speaking last night, forcing her in the end to cancel her lecture because she could not get a word out without being interrupted.
What appears to have happened, the Review added, is that protesters “seemed to be employing a chain tactic, beginning just as soon as the last heckler was removed, so as to continuously speak over Coulter.”
As The College Fix previously reported, Cornell University had denied a student petition to disinvite Coulter.
And at the beginning of Coulter’s talk Wednesday evening, the dean of students warned the audience that disruptors would be removed and referred to the Office of Student Conduct, the Review reported.
If you want to get a flavor of these goons, watch the videos at the link above. These are brainless thugs, who know nothing about Coulter other than the two-dimensional slanders they’ve been fed by the left. Moreover, they make it clear that they firmly believe that their violence (screaming and yelling and interrupting others) is speech — and must be allowed –but Coulter’s lecture, which never happened, is violence and must be silenced by any means necessary. Since their mob action appeared well planned, I would not be surprised if these goons also fantasized in their planning sessions about how wonderful it would be if Coulter was killed somehow. That would definitely silence her.
If these goons are not stopped soon, however, that fantasy will become reality. That Coulter’s blacklisting occurred on November 9th, the anniversary of Kristallnacht in Germany, is most significant. The tactics of the Nazis in 1938 are no different than the tactics now being used by these leftist brownshirts. In Germany, no one stopped the Nazis, and genocide soon followed.
Will someone stop today’s leftist goons? This remains unclear. Cornell authorities made it clear that any disruptors would be liable for punishment, and had each removed as soon as they began heckling. Whether the college actually sanctions them appropriately, including expulsion, remains unclear. The history of the past half century is that leftwing protests are never punished.
On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News
