College Student Attacks Christians – Liberal Media is Silent

In a newly released video from Arizona State we see a student become enraged at the free expression of beliefs by a couple of older gentlemen. The video begins with the student screeching hatred at the protesters and very quickly escalates from there. Almost immediately the student turns to violence as he rushes the Christian protester and begins pushing and hitting him. Fortunately for the protesters, someone was recording the entire event.

(Be forewarned there is some profanity from the angry attacker.)

This is just small example of the kind of mentality we are dealing with in today’s America, folks. The student himself sums up the entire episode near the end of the short video.

He says, “It’s Hate Speech, it’s Provoked Assault!”

Irony of ironies.

The student is the one who began the attack and he dares to claim that simply holding a sign or saying the things that you believe about a subject are themselves “provoked assault”? It’s incredible the lengths that the liberal mind will go to in an effort to justify their horrendous behavior and contradictory beliefs. The mental gymnastics that this young man must have to go through in his mind to believe that screaming obscenities, hatred and vitriol at someone is not hate speech — and that physically attacking them is not assault — but a lone man, holding a sign and calmly speaking what he believes, that is both hate speech and assault?

quiet free speechIs your mind blown yet?

Sadly for us, this is happening all over the country. Colleges and Universities, once the forum for thoughtful debate and disagreement, have become one sided propaganda peddlers. Anyone outside of the mainstream liberal ideology does not deserve to be heard – they don’t even deserve to THINK as they want.

Consider that Condoleezza Rice, former provost of Stanford University and a brilliant academic, drew protests from the faculty and student body of Rutgers University when they heard she would be their commencement speaker. Why? Because her politics were outside of “mainstream beliefs”! Rice is a former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor! Rice is a moderate-liberal Republican! And somehow she is out of the mainstream? Imagine if Rutgers had invited Ted Cruz, Ben Carson or Rick Perry to speak – there would have been an outrageous clamoring against these men… and these are serious candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination.

Does that seem sane to you? It’s not.

We conservatives don’t demand that liberals not be allowed to speak at events. We conservatives don’t boycott companies or schools when they share the interests or influence of a politicians we don’t agree with. No, we speak out when someone like the terrorist Bill Ayers is honored by academia. Or liberal groups persecute conservative people simply for being conservative. Anyone remember Chik-fil-A and the attacks on the Cathy family for being Christians?

The only reason we haven’t yet succumbed to a society where our beliefs and ideas are completely drowned out is that conservatives are the majority… even still. That’s why liberals can seem to be in complete control, yet they cannot force our nation at large to bend to their disgusting will.

Make no mistake – liberals want to demolish free speech. The only “free speech” in the liberal America is the speech that is politically correct, and what is politically correct will be decided by fringe leftist groups who are willing to wage guerilla warfare on everyone else. In a liberal America conservatives don’t have a “right” to free speech. We won’t even have a right to “free” thought.

If more conservatives don’t get involved in the ongoing culture war (and there is a culture war – the field of battle may be different than the one from previous generations, but the war is still here) then we can’t win. We are the majority and its time we started acting like it.

Freedom of speech must remain sacrosanct. Majority. Minority. Everyone must have the right to free thought and free speech. Even when it is offensive. Especially when it is offensive.

    The liberal “stoo-dent” is correct in being “provoked.” If I were there, HIS behavior would have “provoked” me into kicking his behind………”free speech”……..his and mine.

  • Rick J Black, Sr.

    A free thinking individual is a blight upon the body politic
    of Marxim. It is a free radical that must be eliminated for the good of the
    public and public safety. Least the infection should spread to others and cause
    a massive outbreak for cries of freedom.
    In that enviorment, such people would be quarantined, isolated and
    terminated with malice. Command and Control must be adhered to at all times and
    never threatened by the ideas of Liberty, freedom and freewill. That is the Progressive Marxists
    idea of Utopia.

    Liberalism is the politics of adolescents.

    I am afraid I would not have stopped at chucking the student to the ground.

        To your point, did you notice the student crying after he was confronted?

  • Rick J Black, Sr.

    Progressive Mar xists have no
    desire for compromise, least none that does not favor the advancement of their
    agenda. They have no interest in the exchange of ideas, unless of course you
    can be swayed by their manipulation and deception. Their idea of governance is
    con trol and sub mission. Their creed of inclusive tolerance does not allow for
    divergence. They have no national identification beyond their ideology and no
    allegiance to any particular country. In short, any dialogue with them is point
    less and better served by the end of a g un. That is the one thing they
    understand and submit to. It is, unfortunately the only way you can stop
    them from implementing and inf licting their beliefs and actions on
    the unsuspecting masses. They will not stop nor quit while they draw
    breath. The good news is that we won’t either.

  • hayrake

    More and more it becomes obvious that politically correct IS hatred. There is no peace in it. It is pure twisted liberal poison.

  • Jim

    If people would look back at history, the radicals who installed the communist government in Russia we only a small minority of the Russian population. They got away with it because they were violent radicals that had no respect for the views of the majority of the population. The same thing is happening here. The demonstrators at Rutgers made up only a very small percentage of the students and administrators but were allowed to get away with it because of their viciousness to anyone who disagreed with them. Typical liberal, progressive, socialist, communist tactic.

  • Noni77

    Demon possessed boy, clearly.

  • M. Faze

    Have you noticed that it’s those who are LIBERAL are the ones that are so FILLED with “HATE” and they are the ones who do the ATTACKING. That kid is lucky that he was walking after he assaulted the man with the sign. I would have gotten him in a lock hold and waited for the Police to arrest him. He was out of control.

    That kid is a perfect example of the next Mass Murderer.

  • Judah

    Remember that the world (cosmos) hated Him FIRST…

  • revanonymoose

    This should show what spirit the liberal agenda is of. I am convinced that that young guy is demon possessed(Mark 5:1-21; Acts 16:16-18)! I believe that the VAST MAJORITY of liberals are! In fact I am convinced that homosexuality is a form of demon possession!
    Even as I watched and listened I couldn’t help but want to plead the Blood of Jesus Christ over that young guy! Inspite of the horrible thing he was doing I feel compassion and mercy for the young man! Like Jesus my prayer is, “Father, forgive him for he knows not what he is doing!”
    I believe that young man needs demons cast out of him(Mk.16:17&18;
    Acts 16:16-18)! And to be truthful most liberals need demons cast out of them!
    Sad many won’t let the devil be cast out of them. They love darkness rather than light(John 3:19-21)!
    This ought to show us what we are really facing. We are wrestling not against flesh and blood but against demon powers(Eph.6:12; II Cor.10:3-6)!
    Don’t get me wrong I believe we as Christians MUST stand against such evils in this hour(Matt.5:13-16)! But we need to be more aware that this cultural war is a spiritual battle.

  • SandraJ

    A close-up look at mental illness. Glad someone could video these actions or no one would believe it!

    • jessica22

      I wish I could believe it was mental illness, but my guess is the kid was raised by extremely liberal parents or parents with no moral conviction.
      He didn’t look mature enough to think for himself.

  • LeAnn Addleman

    It’s something how a young person can get so insanely angry because of a sign. All he had to do was look the other way and keep on walking.

  • William M Durham

    Well again we have an example of someone who had a really bad set of parents. Anyone who is raised right respects the right of others to legally express their thoughts and beliefs. Those who do not show what sorry parents they had, and in fact probably are the exact representation of their family and parents.

  • blackhawk132

    Parents . Unless you are of this mind set ; DON”T send your children to any Liberal school.This video is the result

  • guest233

    God has warned..woe to those who call evil ‘good’ and good ‘evil’.

  • DetroitDom

    A good taser and some pepper spray would adjust this moron’s attitude right quick.

  • Blessings

    We find ourselves in a world that Satan has many disciples and most are ignorant to this fact, Christians are not! This vedio provided us the opportunity to see Christians who applyed their biblical knowledge and faith on how to handle this hatred and attak on them.. I’d say, God was pleased on this day..

  • slk5

    what i found amusing about the rutgers incident, was the muslim women protestors, protesting rice, but not sharia law!!!

  • ibcyn

    The kid sounds like someone that belongs in a mental institution. He also sounds like a someone that has gotten his way most of his life by the way he was not only yelling but sniveling. The older guy should have pressed charges because how else is the kid to learn there can be consequences to your actions.

  • Reb

    This young man is obviously mentally ill. His behavior is completely out of whack with even atheist, left wing radicals, whom, as crazy as they are, don’t usually act like this.

    • http://www.comcast.net/ Rick

      I hope you are talking about labob.

      • raffaelecafagna

        no , it is about the young student`s action ; but you can apply it to
        labob too .

  • gwedem5995

    This is what these kids are learning at school and at home. They need to have charges filed against him so maybe he would learn his lesson, but I doubt it. Thank you Obama for all the hate you have instigated in this once great country of ours. Has divided our country more in thelast 5 years than all the 73 years I have lived.

  • colleenf

    This kid is obviously possessed by a demon. He needs our prayers……….our whole country needs our prayers.
    And just to let you know, I am NOT kidding about him being possessed!
    This IS the work of the devil and his demons.

  • seeymour kleerly

    Condi Rice severely damaged America with her deceit (mushroom cloud wake up call)!The Neo-Cons killed the GOP. and inexplicably are still appearing in public.

    Just curious..anyone know what the sign said? Not that it matters, that kid was a nut case.

    • http://www.kjv-truth-ministries.org/ Preacher Cruz

      It is a paraphrasing of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

      Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

      Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. http://www.kjv-truth-ministries.org

  • KingofBeers

    One more question…why bring the terms liberal/conservative into the discussion? Does anyone know?

    • Chad

      Seems fairly obvious to me. Academia in general today is very liberal. Liberals often speak strongly about free speech and tolerance, but that really means they will allow and tolerate anything as long as they agree with it. Do you doubt that the student is a lib. Do you think there is any possibility that he is conservative?
      Although this guy is more demostrative than most libs, I believe this is what the hardcore leftists feel inside when they see something such as a sign claiming something like homosexuality is a sin.
      I hope this explains why conservative/liberal was brought up, but since it seems rather obvious, I still doubt you understand.

      • KingofBeers

        I think you’re allowing your own bias to interpret what you choose to see in the video. I still doubt you’d understand.

        • Chad

          So, which part of my reaponse do you disagree with? Do you believe academia isn’t far left in general? Do you believe this kid might hold conservative views? Are these observances by me caused by my “bias”?

          You are right about one thing. I look at your comments and I don’t understand.

          • Truthteller

            Speak not into the ears of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of thy words. Proverbs 21:9 KingofJeers and LaBobE are reprobate minds.

  • Doug Icenhower

    From my perspective, the terms are employed only in an effort to keep score. Thing is, I have no idea where the scoreboard is located, unless it’s being housed at the IRS:-)

  • Chad

    Friendly reminder: please don’t respond to the Soros paid troll LABobE. It only serves to justify his salary from his employers.

    • KingofBeers

      Friendly reminder…please don’t respond to Chad. He’s too far gone for anyone to reach, and has zero proof about LABobe.

      Didn’t like that much, did you? So, why make a ridiculous comment like that about another poster?

      Now you can libel me.

      • Chad

        Ok, I have my suspicions about you being a paid Soros troll as well, but I’m not as sure about you. You aren’t nearly as polished with the communist talking points, and unlike Bob, there is a chance you actually have a real job since I don’t see your posts taking up such a large proportion of comments.
        It seems like you thought you got a zinger in on me or something with your post. I imagine you sitting in your parents basement, calling for someone to bring you a hotpocket, sticking your chest out, patting yourself on the back, all while most on this site are laughing at you.

        • KingofBeers

          Gee, I hope I can sleep tonight?! Lol. I’m a veteran of 4 years, with 30 years of government service, recently retired. Made wise investments when Clinton was in office and put all my money in the standard G fund when Bush was president…thus saving me from losing a bundle. Also I’m a part time professional guitarist, singer/songwriter. I’m not here all the time because most of the posters I won’t learn anything from. (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink)

          • jessica22

            Not sure who or what this Chad is but a couple weeks ago he accused me of some “crime” that offended his little feelings.
            He has some issue and obviously can’t deal with dissenting opinion.

            Good luck sleeping tonight and thanks for your service as a veteran.

          • KingofBeers

            You’re a sweetheart, Jessica. Thank you so much!

          • Chad

            I don’t remember who or what this Jessica22 is, but she’s probably mad that I exposed her twisted viewpoint. Like the liberal in the video probably does, she accuses others others of not being able to handle opposing viewpoints when leftists on average are most guilty of this.

          • jessica22

            If you want, say it to me directly.
            Look, Chad, I’m not mad because you exposed my twisted viewpoint (btw what twisted viewpoint are you talking about?). You trash people without having any idea where they’re coming from and when you’re called on it, can’t defend yourself. I just wish you’d be more diplomatic…

          • Chad

            I was just guessing at what made you upset with me since I have no idea what you were referring to in your first above statement or any comment I made concerning you. I don’t recall accusing any one of “crime” or “hurting my ‘little feelings’ ” (btw, that part sure was diplomatic). It is possible that I might misconstrue someone’s comments, since we don’t have the benefit to see or hear them in this forum, and if I believe that is the case, then I’ll admit that I made that mistake. What was I called on btw. I’m more than happy to defend myself, but what from?

          • jessica22

            Tell you what, Chad… I apologize for making a crack about you accusing someone of a crime and hurting your feelings. It was a moment of frustration and I took it out on you. I just get irritated when I read some of the bizarre comments people make here without reason. I need to slow down and accept that this is an anonymous place for people to voice their opinion. You have every right to say whatever you want. No more interference… my bad…

          • Chad

            Fair enough. That happens to me sometimes as well. I really do try to not hammer posters from the get-go. I will challenge what people post though. On my end, people who post comments constantly claiming or implying things like people being against Obama only because he is black, for instance, bypass the opportunity for having a cordial debate (not saying this is you, because I can’t remember previous posts from you).

          • Truthteller

            There is very little in your statement that is true. You are better off posting your diatribe on socialist sites.

          • KingofBeers

            Which of my statements do you believe to be untrue?

    • Carol Skelton

      Chad, thanks!!! Will remember that. We need to add KingofBeers to that list. Wonder if the brewer knows he is slandering their slogan. Using it the way he is and all.

  • Brabado
