The Left was out in force at Emory University in Atlanta on Wednesday night.

The “enraged” billboards were planted in White Hall outside the auditorium where David Horowitz was planning on speaking.

But the real rage was inside the auditorium.
It was amazing to watch. The crowd of Leftists, and Muslims and Students were determined not to let David Horowitz speak.
Afterwards, many, many of the students said they were ashamed of the way the mob acted. But, they certainly didn’t try to stop it.

The Emory University Republicans wrote this about the blowout at FrontPage Mag:

“I’ve spoken at Emory University several times and I’ve never seen it this bad,” said Horowitz responding to the crowd as they shouted and jeered. “This is exactly what the fascists did in Germany in the 1930s.” Protesters began their efforts as soon as Horowitz was introduced with boos and chants of “Heil Hitler.” Despite the people who stood with their backs to Horowitz and the shouting of obscenities and other remarks from audience members, Horowitz attempted to deliver his speech that covered academic freedom and radical Islam. The loud chants, sign-waving, and disruptive gestures continued to escalate from audience members until the atmosphere was so chaotic that even the police present were unable to subdue the crowd. Horowitz was led off stage and left the campus under tight security, and the event came to an abrupt end. “This is a poor reflection on Emory, and we are embarrassed by the actions so many in the campus community,” said Emory College Republicans Chairman Ben Clark.” The Emory administration must make it clear that they do not condone the protesters’ behavior, but that they respect Horowitz’s right to speak on campus and will work to ensure that this does not happen again.”

Many in the audience left the event disappointed. “Even the students who did not agree with David Horowitz did not get a chance to speak their minds because of the protesters’ disruptive actions,” said Emory Professor Mark Bauerlein. “No one was able to listen to the lecture or to speak themselves – pro or con – everyone was shut down.”

What started with a few people standing up with their backs to David Horowitz soon became nearly half the room.

This is Emory University.
This is how Emory treats its campus guests.

The Left’s favorite chant- “Racist, Sexist, Antigay, David Horowitz go away!”
Is David Horowitz antigay? Is that why he asked Tammy Bruce to speak at Pepperdine?
The Leftists and Muslims both joined to harass David Horowitz. Both Leftists and Muslims were standing with their backs to Horowitz until the talk was cancelled.
This is Emory University.

Leftists Force Horowitz From Stage– Shut Down Free Speech at Emory!!!
