    DePaul looks idiotic here.

      You misspelled “is”.

    Vulgar. The black racists who caused the disruption should be expelled and Holtschneider fired. This is an absolute abomination. You force them to get more security, then tell the security to do nothing while a pair a black racists make a circus of your institution.

    Universities have become brainwashing centers of failed Stalinists whose only pleasure in life is indoctrinating the young into their vile ideology because they are intellectually incapable of defending their beliefs in the open so they have to manipulate young people to act as criminals to enforce political correctness.

    American universities have become show trials of the left just like they had in the Soviet Union and Red China, where you had ideologically orthodox young people shout down and violently purge those who weren’t politically correct.

    The fact is leftists despise freedom. So Americans have a choice. You either side with freedom or you side with left-wing totalitarianism. It really is that simple.

    Great job proving to the world, once again, that US Universities are bubble universes filled with coddled, emotionally-underdeveloped toddlers. These young “adults” are incapable of functioning in normal human society. They are doomed. It’s time to clean-up the university system – get the cultists and indoctrination out.

    The noose on campus was another hoax planted by a student to get attention. Any time anyone finds a noose, or paints hate speech, or has something iced onto a cake, you can bet they’re lying about it to claim victimhood. Your reporting is pathetic.

    • Jamesf67

      The “noose” as seen in the twitter pictures making the rounds was a bit of frayed rope with a simple hitch tied in it. If it were intended as a racist symbol it would have had a full hangman’s knot and be hanging from a tree limb.
      What we have is someone dropped the tie down from their trunk and a bunch of hypersensitive crybullies flooded the twitter feed for morons.

      • ChicagoJohn

        I hope that no one on campus goes to the boat docks. The amount of “nooses” that they’ll encounter there will be enormous.

    • Jamesf67

      It wasn’t even a noose, just a piece of rope on the sidewalk.

        Balls. That’s a noose???
        If someone is getting themselves into a tizzy because they saw a piece of knotted rope that formed a loop?
        I can’t take any complaint from the people on that campus seriously anymore.

  • Amanda

    Thank you. I completely agree. The only speech I saw being suppressed was Milo, the speakers, the republican students, and Katie. I have no idea what video those snowflakes were watching.

  • Crow_T_Robot65

    Ah, left wing fascist crybullies strike again. The causes you espouse look weak and foolish if they rely on silencing dissent.

  • stephenlight

    If you are so fragile that speech makes you fold like a cheap suitcase, you have some very nasty surprises in life coming. If you need to shut down a speech that you disagree with, then you are a totalitarian. Plain and simple.

    I looked at the list of Emergent Speakers invited to campus. It was a parade of every soft headed cause of the Left imaginable. If a cadre of campus Reublicans had behaved at one of these speeches as the dim witted Milo protestors did, they likely would have been arrested and escorted off campus.

    There is a reckoning coming for these delicate flowers and it is likely to come from quarters they least expect it from. Their competition is not only the Campus Rebulicans. It is far more diligent students in East Asia studying actual topics in technology. It is also automation. There are only so many slots in cloistered sociology departments to go around.

    The frost is coming and these folks will be the first to feel the chill.

    “World War II joke in a Holocaust museum” are you interviewing those who are ‘special”

  • Paul Cavanaugh

    Where are the examples of all this hate speech? “Feminism is a cancer” isn’t hate speech, it’s a well reasoned opinion that illustrates the fact that Feminists urge discrimination and censorship. There are feminist videos calling for all men to be put into camps for god sake, where is the outrage over that?

    OMG Milo said microaggressions aren’t real??? OH NOES Milo is a conservative? HORROR OF HORRORS he wants Trump to win?

    The reason there are never any examples given of the so called hate speech is because it isn’t real. BLM members can be as racist as they want and no one cares. Milo says they should grow up and stop being babies? Call the police!!

    It’s time to take the babies out of the safe space playpens and show them the real world.

  • Sven Åke Svensson

    As a student newspaper. Why do you not report on the different issues the Faculty has? They are to blame in this. This is not something that just happened when Milo came to you. This in fact has been brewing for years on end. The evidence against professors are piling up all over the internet. You even have ISIS sympatizers teaching on campus.
    I understand that you students are scared now. With good reason too. What have you learned during your time there? What have you not seen but should be obvious? But i tell you this. You can all do great. But you need to be more critical to those telling you things. Do not just follow the plans that the teachers use. Investigate them. Why is it in the plan.
    I wish you the best of luck.

  • Reader_in_Colorado

    When people simply disagree with the PC fascist agenda, the reaction is the shouting of obscenities, deprivation of the freedom to speak one’s mind and mob violence. These folks look more like 3rd graders as opposed to college students …

  • Botzu

    Saying, “i believe in free speech, however” is the new “im not a racist, but”. Trying to stay neutral in a situation like this isn’t going to work. You are bound to just piss off everyone.

  • Brad D.

    The best thing about these comments is the sound of crickets coming from the sjw camp.

    They don’t want a dialogue. They want a monologue.

    *goes back to watching PCU*

  • Muzzlehatch

    Love it that these people are attemting to defend the indefensible. They think they can keep this on campus and deconstruct it in some post modernist double speak.

    • ChicagoJohn

      When you say “keep this on campus”… you mean, speech you disagree with?
      How will you live when you get off campus, and have to hear what others have to say?

  • Mina17

    A noose on campus. So who wants to place a bet that it was a leftist SJ whiner who did it to stoke the fears of racism?

    • popehentai

      the image of the “noose” looks more like a truck tiedown fell off someones cargo, its a simple knot, a few feet of cord, and frayed rope.

  • Chicago Joe

    When you get out into the real world you will fail. Since you Marxist scum are doing everything you can do destroy this country, there will be nothing that can save you from yourselves.

    I’ll take solace that your kind will starve to death first as the fires burn around me.

  • DePaul now looks to the outside world like a joke of a university populated by thugs and their do-nothing cronies in the administration. The stage-jumpers should be expelled and the administration sacked, along with all Social Justice-related classes. There is no Christian truth nor free inquiry at DePaul.

  • NanoNaps

    Yeah, “the timing is important”.

    Sure thing that a leftist was the one writing the grafitti <- hoax
    After DePaul drops in reviews and the presidents writes an "apology" you suddenly find a rope (not a noose, go check what a noose is) <- screams hoax.

    This is not a news site, it is simply leftist propaganda site.

    “It’s just really disconcerting and upsetting and kind of nauseating to
    hear (free speech) be the excuse or the pass to why this happened, and
    to fully put shame on the protesters,”

    No. It is disconcerting that people have excused those who wanted to silence Milo. It also is disconcerting to label these silencers as “protestors” as if their actions were legitimate. Additionally, it comes as disconcerting to see a lie which basically says that the protestors have shame fully put on them, when they aren’t getting prosecuted.

  • Joe Schmoe

    like… what… are… you… trying… to… say…?

  • dvrmte

    DePaul, remove your Communist professors or your university goes to Hell. That’s the bottom line. I predict your university is going to Hell.

  • Liam Redmond

    Can’t believe you guys actually gave time in this article to imply that these protesters were somehow justified in doing what they did because they, without authority, arbitrarily decide some parts of Mr. Yiannopoulis speech somehow do not classify as free speech. Absolutely disgusting. We have a word for people like you and that word is scum. But fascist could quite easily apply too. They usually go hand in hand. The sad part is that these people you are facilitating DePaul don’t even seem to realise they’re helping to destroy their own country. They don’t understand a good thing when they’ve got it or recognize the privilege that they have, or rather how privileged they are to have what they have.
