On the Daily Caller yesterday, DC reporter Amber Athey reminisced about her speaking visit to American University. “A large group of protesters eventually showed up halfway through my speech and complained when they were informed that the room was already filled to capacity,” she wrote. “Despite their claims of wanting to come in and ‘silently protest,’ it’s clear that they were attempting to disrupt my speech by having a large group enter the room while I was in the middle of speaking.”
“While I was inside talking about how a false sexual assault allegation led to Emmett Till’s lynching death in the 1950s, the group of protesters stood outside with signs and began chanting, ‘We Believe Survivors.'” Perhaps they do, but they should also read history and put on their listening ears when somebody other than them is talking.
