Robert Spencer couldn’t speak for more than 30 seconds without students shouting and cursing at him.
The attempt to silence someone who has a differing viewpoint was a “quintessentially fascist act, and you are manifesting it in a wonderful way tonight,” said Spencer.
Spencer frequently discusses terrorism by Muslims as being religiously motivated, an argument that has put him in the cross-hairs of American Muslims who say his interpretation of Islam is dangerously inaccurate and perverts their faith.
When I hear Spencer say that Islam should be illegal, I hear him saying my religion should be outlawed … and what I hear him saying is that he will chip away at the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
The speaker last night was promoting ISIS ideology on campus. He was essentially their spokesperson. That’s how dangerous this rhetoric is.
