Description

Conservative students don't feel like their ideas are welcome on campus. So they're fighting back. We go to Nebraska, where one skirmish spins out of control.

Why does the left always equate right wing with Facism? It seems to me that the left feels comfortable with that assertion, and if so...can we equate the left as Socialist? They make it sound that since they're "for the people" they somehow have an altruistic utopian moral agenda centered in equality. Maybe it would be a good idea to read a little more about the history of Socialism.

I'm a registered Republican but this made me realize it's a party of hate and their agenda scares me. The conservative party has been hyjacked by haters. Even the very innocent seeming girl tabling has caused so much damage and has now allowed hate to grow. I'm out Republican party.

I share Courtney's sentiments, but I think if she had just sat down and talked to Katie - an impressionable young woman. You get more bees with honey. We can't respond to the Right with the tactics they use - makes us no better than them. All we're doing is adding fuel to the fire - we're giving them what they want. Choose love. Always. For everyone - even if we disagree vehemently with them. They're still human beings.

Curt Coleman It doesn't matter. We need to be better than them. We'll never get anywhere otherwise. If you study the research, study human psychology, you'll see this is the only way. Katie missed a huge opportunity. All she did instead is embolden this young woman. We can't let pride and emotion get in the way of reason.

Michelle McCurdy I am on the right, and yes I agree. There is far too much blaming of our countrymen right now. Within the conservative community there is a strong feeling of being attacked and people are very quickly gearing up to "Fight back" as we see it. No matter who is right or wrong this is very dangerous lots of people could get hurt or worse. Our freedom to disagree is the only thing we must all hold sacred.

T Abel I think Courtney is a **** she sits there and cry's about loosing her privilege to educate students yet she shows NO REMORSE for ridiculing a student on her campus who has different political views from her own. Maybe if she had been an educator FIRST and discussed her views about this party in lieu of her actions, she would have more respect. for the record, I consider myself a liberal independent, but I do not condone this behavior. our country is built on the idea of having a political balance. Even though I don't agree with all of their views, I do agree that the younger generation needs more people like katie, fighting for the Republican party. Shame on you Courtney.

Maybe just once a liberal can show some restraint and not shouting down opinions of others in their typical vulgar manner

The conference sounds far too much like a Nazi propaganda session. Not that they were advocating Nazi views, rather they sound one step away from outright shooting people who disagree.
