[Eugene Volokh] The campus anti-free-speech movement: Black Lives Matter protesters shut down ACLU speaker at William & Mary

Robby Soave (Reason) so reports, with links to the William & Mary student newspaper and other sources; an excerpt:

Students affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement crashed an event at the College of William & Mary, rushed the stage, and prevented the invited guest—the American Civil Liberties Union’s Claire Gastañaga, a W & M alum—from speaking.

Ironically, Gastañaga had intended to speak on the subject, “Students and the First Amendment.” …

[P]rotesters drowned [Gastañaga] out with cries of, “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too.” They also chanted, “the oppressed are not impressed,” “shame, shame, shame, shame,” … “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution,” and … “liberalism is white supremacy.”
