State of Conflict

Lawton’s protest had lasted about 20 minutes. She had attacked her political opponent head-on with chanting and cursing, and temporarily drove her off the plaza. Mullen’s counterprotest was longer, quieter, and less direct. But she found an audience among Nebraskans who did not want Lawton getting a toehold at the public university. And so they drove Lawton off the small plot of territory that the graduate student had claimed as her own free-speech zone: the classroom.
Just before Christmas, Katie Mullen traveled to West Palm Beach, Fla., for Turning Point’s annual Student Action Summit. The speaker list was a who’s-who of conservative TV personalities.

Mullen was in her element. She took a photo with the former White House aide Sebastian Gorka. She shook Donald Trump Jr.’s hand. On her 20th birthday, in a convention hall filled with 3,000 other young conservatives, the radio personality Joe Walsh asked her to stand for applause. "Guys, I don’t want to get in trouble — I know we live in a time when everybody’s harassing everybody — but guys, she’d be a great catch," he said. "She’s adorable, and she’s a hard-core conservative, baby. She is a freedom fighter!"

JNU of America? Weren't Republican politicians doing the exact thing that they routinely accuse democratic politicians of doing, politicizing a college's internal matter?
