  1. Why do I think this group doesn’t stand for justice at all. Leftists have no idea what justice actually is. They pervert that word just like the word fascism, and everything else

    1. Funnily enough, it’s a libertarian club that’s hosting the event. Damn libertarians, always perverting the ideas of liberty and justice.

    2. You idiots sound ridiculous with this “leftist” crap. Ooh Elizabeth Warren wants to raise the minimum wage. It’s practically death camps.

      1. You idiots sound ridiculous with this “leftist” crap. Ooh Elizabeth Warren wants to raise the minimum wage. It’s practically death camps.

        Actually, it’s more like “Elizabeth Warren wants to raise the minimum wage, which betrays a disturbing ignorance of economics in someone who really should know better.”

        But without shrieking partisanship, you wouldn’t have anything to say at all, would you?

        1. It’s hardly a seller’s market in politicians who don’t know how economics work. Republicans come extra cheap, what with being lying psychopathic morons on the subject.

          1. YOU and your Lefty friends dont know the basics of how any economy works. You just never will. You dont want to because socialism requires an ignorance of actual economic prosperity.

          2. ‘Lying psychopaths’

            Tony, that’s you and your friends. We’re the good guys. You are all evil pieces of shit.

            1. You and Mitch McConnell are not the good guys. What a day it will be when you figure that out.

            2. Poor Tony.

              He still has not accepted that he is one of the bad guys.

    3. Probably because Harvard is more hostile to liberty and true justice than anyplace in the country!

      1. Their is no debate with progressives that will ever be ultimately solved with words. The sooner everyone gets on board with that, the sooner we can save America and ensure our freedom.

        1. Are you proposing violence?

          Forgot the NAP have you?

          1. Self defense does not violate NAP

            “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!”

  2. What’s the over under on the event being disrupted by protestors?

    1. I wouldn’t bet on crazy protesters not showing up…

    2. But I notice that they don’t have any time blocked out for protestors on the schedule. Guess that means there will be no protests.

  3. The words justice, Harvard, students, and liberty all in one line?
    I think I will double up on my meds now.

  4. Fascists, racists, thugs stamping out free speech, and haters. The protesters that is. SFL couldn’t be a nicer group of young people.

  5. I wonder if Harvard faculty members are preparing Safe Spaces with puppy dogs and coloring books to ease the Pain and Harm that students will suffer when Nick and his libertarian friends arrive on campus and have the nerve to speak.

    1. If they are, some should file a complaint against them for cruelty to animals. Those poor puppy dogs…

    2. They’re likely preparing to attack them, ten on one.

  6. Hope Mr. Gillespie follows up with a review of the day.
