Well, the goal of the protest was originally to shut down the speaker and prevent the speech. So because they were unsuccessful are we supposed to pretend we didn’t hear that part? Read more
It’s not the act of voting I’m addressing, but really, the stupidity of the explanation, which reads (and probably is) a dumb kid’s attempt at cribbing anti-establishment rhetoric they read from a bunch of other people. Read more
