Comey Speech At Howard University Gets Heckled, Democrats Reaping What They Have Sown [VIDEO]

The left has been told that the “heckler’s veto” is a legitimate way of shutting down speech. College students have taken this to heart. In a recently released study from the Brookings Institution, 51% of college students believe that “disrupt(ing) the speech by loudly and repeatedly shouting so that the audience cannot hear the speaker” is an acceptable action.

And now it’s coming around to bite the Democrats in the butt.

On Monday, Nancy Pelosi – yes, Nancy Pelosi! – was heckled and drowned out by “Dreamers.” Let’s go to the video tape.

I’m sure Pelosi never thought the heckler’s veto would be used on her.

And now, a much less popular political figure on the left, James Comey, has gotten shouted down during a speech he was attempting to give at convocation this morning at Howard University.

He barely got the “thank you” out before the yelling began. And it just kept going while he attempted to give the speech.

And it continued.

Oh, and the university tried to stop them. But since they failed to teach the students about the free exchange of ideas on a college campus, they also failed to convince the students that there might be another point of view to consider.

University officials repeatedly and unsuccessfully sought to convince the protesters to let Comey speak, telling them to “be better than this’’ and allow for an open debate of ideas. In response, the protesters chanted: “White supremacy is not a debate.’’

Comey, wearing black academic robes, sought to get the attention of the crowd, to no avail.

“I’m only going to speak for 12 minutes,’’ he said, joking that if the protesters kept it up they were all going to be late for lunch.

“I love the enthusiasm of the young folks, I just wish they would understand what a conversation is,’’ said Comey, trying to speak above the interruptions of the protesters.

At one point, university professor Bernard Richardson sought to quell the protest, saying, “That’s not the Howard University way.’’

Oh, but it is now, Professor – because you haven’t taught them any differently. Congratulations, Democrats and the left. You have sown, and now you shall reap. The mob is coming for your speech, too.

    In fairness to Comey any white speaker would have gotten the same treatment. Also, why didn’t Professor Richardson try the Obama hooey-R card, as in “at Howard University that’s not hooey-R”?

  • Stephen Ippolito says:

    This scene is both sweet and bitter.

    Sweet to see Comey, who dishonestly rescued Hillary from prosecution, getting the lack of respect he so richly deserves – and from her constituency, too;

    bitter and unsettling because it is a taste of the fate that awaits us all in the west as the indulged and intolerant puritans of right-think come into their own.

    In his brilliant play, A Man for All Seasons, Robert Bolt has Sir Thomas More say a line that resonated with me through everyday of 30 years of legal practice:
    “I would give the devil himself benefit of law – for my own safety’s sake”.

  • Stephen Ippolito says:

    I must add: Full credit to San Fran Nan on standing up to these louts.
    She and her like and their indulgent policies may have weened these rude, ungrateful, graceless twits in the first place – but full credit to her for not running away or just yielding them the floor like Bernie so shamefully did during the primaries.
