Campus Free Speech

Gonzaga University Won't Let Ben Shapiro Speak on Campus

"Events policy requires us to consider whether an event would pose substantial risk to the safety of any member of our campus community."

Gonzaga University will not allow its chapter of the College Republicans to host conservative pundit Ben Shapiro.

An administrator of the private, Catholic school in Spokane, Washington, cited safety concerns and the potential for Shapiro's visit to create a "hostile environment" on campus.

"Gonzaga's events policy requires us to consider whether an event would pose substantial risk to the safety of any member of our campus community," wrote Judi Biggs Garbuio, according to Campus Reform.

It's not clear whose safety Biggs Garbuio believes is threatened by Shapiro's presence. Her message to the College Republicans seems to suggest concern about both disruptive leftist protesters and what Shapiro might say. Neither are good reasons to deny students a chance to hear from Shapiro: One gives veto power to the mob, the other conflates words with violence.

Gonzaga is a private university and can do as it pleases, of course. I will note, however, that Gonzaga's broad conception of public safety is selective. Concerns about a hostile environment and unspecified risks to members of the community did not stop the administration from hiring former Mizzou professor Melissa Click.

  1. Only people who recognize the joys, benefits and wonders of socialist slavery are allowed on American re-education camps of higher education.
    After all, if conservative speakers were allowed on campus, the students might confused, frustrated and head toward their safe places and engage in puppy therapy which is over-booked as it is now that these poor urchins found out math does not compromise its principles.

    1. Math is such patriarchal oppression. Cold, inflexible, and favoring logic over emotion.

      1. I’m not a leftist, I just let them fuck me in the ass and defend them as though I were a leftist.

        1. Creeping senility will kill me soon, and everyone who knows me will rejoice and line up to take a shit on my grave.

          1. I smell like shit and I don’t know why.

              1. So, fucking my dog, NAP violation or no?

    2. (smirk)

      Censorship traces ENTIRELY to the right! For over two centuries.

      Book bans and burning. Censorship of movies. TV. Speech. Burning witches at the stake.

      Government force vs a PRIVATE university deciding what happens on private property.

      This is why we libertarians find it so easy to laugh at you people.

      1. Fuck off Hihn.

      2. This is a perfect parody of the Hihnposter. Whoever it is, well done. It’s got every element of his carefully designed, obtuse provo-prop nonsense down perfectly.

        It would be churlish of me not to respond with the traditional FUCK OFF, HIHN!

        1. How desperate are the goobers to DENY
          Salem Witchcraft Trials?
          Book burning?
          Movie censorship?
          TV censorship
          Book censorship?
          Speech codes?

          ALL the initiation of state force. BY THE FASCIST RIGHT, for over 200 years.

          Versus the PUSSIES WHINING about actions of a PRIVATE university on PRIVATE land.
          The jack-booted thugs are coming. I the Catholic Church is not safe from them — what are you and I?

          1. “PRIVATE university on PRIVATE land.”

            Its funny for me when you’re too stupid to understand where pell grants and student loans come from.

            1. (sneer) How is that relevant, goober? To ANYTHING

              1) Those go to STUDENTS

              2) When farmers get subsidies … WHY DO THEY NO LONGER OWN PRIVATE PROPERTY?

              3) When automakers get subsidies, which flow through to buyers of electric cars HOWS IS THAT A GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF THE AUTO INDUSTRY.?

              4) When FanniE and Freddie insure a home loan, HOW DOES THE HOME CEASE TO BE PRIVATE PROPERTY?

              Why did you commit this MASSIVE fuckiuop …. TWICE? (OMFG)

                  1. (My tone and bold face is defense of aggression … by an illiterate sock.)

                    What kind of fucking idiot doesn’t understand why accepting taxpayer money changes one’s responsibility?

                  Pussy

              2. “1) Those go to STUDENTS”

                This is wrong, checks are cut to the school, not the students.

                1. This is wrong, checks are cut to the school, not the students.

                  For what purpose?

                  1) Does ir pay the students’ tuition?

                  2) Does the student own the debt?

                  3) How does that convert private property to public property?

                  4) Where does the Constitution sanction the seizing of church property and institutions?

                  Any questions?

      3. Die already, Hinh.

      4. Burning witches at the stake was over 400 years ago.

        And it was done those, who settled a colony with a Communist charter

        1. Burning witches at the stake was over 400 years ago.

          Your math is off, but 400+ years would make right-wing oppression even worse.

          And it was done those, who settled a colony with a Communist charter

          You believe Puritans were on the left? They were far to the right of Santorum, Huckabee and Pence. Roanoke was communal, much further south. Puritans were the opposite — they came here as a company with shareholders.

          If you equate Biblical Communes wirth State Communism — is Israel Communistic? The many religious communes (more than just the Shakers and Oneidans) were ULTRA conservative, some as bad as the Puritans.

          Even if you were correct on Salem, the other censorship — books, movies, TV, speech were 1000 times greater, and indisputably the right. And nothing even close to Charlottesville has come from the left.

      5. Yes, Michael, explain to us all how Al and Tipper Gore are far-right ideologues. Educate us about how Wilson and FDR’s censorious policies are rooted in their right-wing extremism. Inform us about the nature of PC speech codes that were deftly implemented by those notoriously rightist college administrators.

        We eagerly await the sanity that you will bestow.

        1. Cowardly diversion. Irrelevant and immaterial to the topic..

          P.S. McCarthyism

  2. Well who cares what goes on in Gonzaga University?!?!?

    I want to know, what is going on in Gazongagas University!?!?! And HOW do we take off that over-the-shoulder, bolder-holder, anyway?!?! (PS, the Germans call it a Schtopp-em-von-Floppen!!!)

    1. Is that a satellite of Brazzer’s University?

    2. It’s a private university on private land. which makes YOU the fascist.
      But even that is mild, compared with 200+ years of oppression STATE censorship and book burn by the right?

      Left – Right = Zero
      Reject BOTH dictatorships. Choose liberty.

      1. “It’s a private university on private land”

        That accepts taxpayers money in the form of grants and loans.

        You lose.

        1. OMFG This time Incorrigible repeated the same fuckup … but CRAZIER!

          How is that relevant, goober? To ANYTHING

          1) Those go to STUDENTS

          2) When farmers get subsidies … WHY DO THEY NO LONGER OWN PRIVATE PROPERTY?

          That’s why we call them Trumptards — just as manipulated as Progtards, just suckers on different issues.

              Did he say that Pell Grants and student loans (FOR STUDENTS) change a private schools to a governernment. Did laugh like a spastic m0ney, or give EXAMPLES (gasp) to prove him wrong?

          2. SCOTUS says if you take the money you have to abide by the rules.

            Sorry all your stupid whining just makes you look uninformed and deranged.

            1. Why does this dumb-fuckstick sock ALWAYS post a few minutes after Incorrigible ,… and just as crazy????

              SCOTUS says if you take the money you have to abide by the rules.

              WHERE DID SCOTUS SAY THAT ALSO CONVERTS PRIVATE PROPERTY AND INSTITUTiONS INTO PUBLIC??

          3. “1) Those go to STUDENTS”

            Again, this is incorrect. The checks are cut to the school, and the payment is from the loan company to the school, NOT to the student.

            Yours is a common misconception but you are quite wrong.

            1. (boldface in defense from repeated aggressiond bu a PROVEN psycho)

              ***** ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, PUSSY *****

              Again, this is incorrect. The checks are cut to the school, and the payment is from the loan company to the school, NOT to the student.

              COWARDLY EVASION
              AGAIN, (for the integrity challenged

              For what purpose?

              1) Does ir pay the students’ tuition?
              2) Does the student own the debt?
              3) How does that convert private property to public property?
              4) Where does the Constitution sanction the seizing of church property and institutions?

              Any questions?

              **** CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? ***

              Be a man. Stop running from yourself, like a pussy.

              AND STOP STALKING ME

            2. Maybe things have changed, but when I was in school, the grants and loans were checks made out to me.

              1. As student loans became far more numerous, so did fraud.
                I’d send them to the school; myself, just to be sure it goes where it should. Our friends should ask themselves where the checks go for car loans. Home mortgages?

                Many of them insist — even multiple times, often in the nastiest of rage — that my home mortgage was not for me.

  3. If we can’t get some real enforcement to keep social media platforms within Section 230, and we can’t get the taxpayer dollar spigot to these “private” colleges turned off completely, can we at least get Betsy D to start cracking the whip and issue some “academic freedom” rulemaking?

    Then again, Sooners President David Boren (yes, that David Boren) blatantly and self-righteously kicked those fratboys out of the school for singing a racist song on their own coach bus, so the Constitution ain’t even working in public schools!

  4. I hope John shows up and starts ridiculing Gonzaga for being scared of pussy little Ben Shapiro.

    1. You’re the pussy (lol)

      HOW DARE YOU contrast the actions of a private university on private land with TWO CENTURIES of STATE CENSORSHIP by the right?

      I RIDICULE your self-righteous hypocrisy
      Who the FUCK was banning and burning books? Censoring movies – TV – speech?
      BURNING WITCHES AT THE STAKE?

      The self-righteous are ALWAYS the greatest hypocrites on moral values.

      What a bunch of pussies.

      1. Fuck off Hihn.

        1. PRECIOUS snowflake triggered AGAIN!

          Fuck off Hihn.

          WHINEY PUSSY on Gonzaga ,…. MUCH WORSE THAN THEY ARE!!! … proving AGAIN that the right is far worse.

          How bright does that make the goober? Like General Custer? (sneer)

      2. The self-righteous are ALWAYS the greatest hypocrites on moral values.

        This parody account exhibits uncanny precision in the way it captures the complete lack of self-awareness and hypocrisy. Bravo.

        1. IN DEFENSE OF AGGRESSION — A SIGN OF THE RIGHT FOR OVER 200 YEARS/

          HOW DARE YOU contrast the actions of a private university on private land with TWO CENTURIES of STATE CENSORSHIP by the right?

          I RIDICULE your self-righteous hypocrisy
          Who the FUCK was banning and burning books? Censoring movies – TV – speech?

          (as the genius’s CONFIRM!!!))

          What a bunch of pussies.

          1. So now you admit you’re Hihn after lyong about it.

            1. To be clear, I do not have a particularly strong opinion on Ben Shapiro. I think he is a skilled communicator, and seems to be a big phenomenon. I think nurturing any sort of anti-progressive subculture among the young, especially the educated or otherwise prosperous middle class, will be crucial to saving this country. That burgeoning demographic forms the core of a particularly worthless and dangerous form of centrist-prog politics; only a serious reaction in at least some of its booming core demographic, coupled with serious drop in Latino (and/or black) support for Democrats can save what is left of traditional American political values. So I don’t look to him to be any great philosopher, just to get the kids excited.

              John is the one who enjoys ridiculing those who are skeered of lil’ Ben (scroll down a bit too). I was just referencing that.

            2. So now you admit you’re Hihn after lyng about it.So now you PROVE you’re a lying sack of shit … ON TOP OF your FUCKUP on Pell Grants and student loans.

              Cyber-bullies are that that way because obvious,

              1. Lol wut? How is WHERE THEY GET THEIR FUNDING FROM relevant?

                Ahahahahahahha did you ACTUALLY JUST SAY SOMETHING THAT MORONIC?

                AHAHAHHAHAH OMFG YOU DID!!!

                  SAME FUCKUP.

                  What is he doing? Arguing that the left is more oppressive that the right …
                  By launching the IDENTICAL assault FOUR times. … FROM THE RIGHT!!! (snort)

                  OMFG How retarded is THAT?

      3. “I RIDICULE your self-righteous hypocrisy
        Who the FUCK was banning and burning books? Censoring movies – TV – speech?
        BURNING WITCHES AT THE STAKE?”

        Answered is The Catholic Church.
        Remember it was the Protestant Church that hang Witches.

        1. One of the wacker responses. And the highest percentage of bullshiir (so far)

          LIBERALS were banning and burning books!!!
          LIBERALS WERE CENSORING MOVIES!!!
          LIBERALS WERE CENSORING TV!!
          LIBERALS WERE CENSORING SPEECH!!!
          SALEM WAS CHURCH AND STATE, LIKE THE INQUISITION

          The most infamous trials were conducted by the Court of Oyer and Terminer in 1692 in Salem Town.

          Court of Oyer and Terminer This new addition to the government system was created in order to help reform Salem ViLlage and organize the numerous amount of trials.

          That is the COLONIAL cause of our Separation. The (un)Holy Inquisition was still committing morai atrocities until roughly our Civil, War.

          Anything else? FACTUAL?

          1. Yes, you were wrong, student aid money goes from the loan company to the school, not to the students.

      4. Why is it the trolls always come from a certain POV?

        Also: it’s been a long time since burning witches was a hot button political issue.

        1. It’s not a hot button issue here either. It’s just one in a long list of examples, of how suppression and censorship originated on the right long ago, and only moments ago (historically) on the left.

          As a libertarian, I am of course neither, and oppose suppression by either. Also oppose oppression and denial by a few here on the authoritarian right. I am old enough to have seen McCarthyism, book burning, and censorship for portions in every type of speech and entertainment. And have been fighting it ever since.

  5. “If he comes to campus we’re afraid there will be violence.”

    “Who do you think is going to be violent?”

    “Us.”

    1. “If he comes to campus we’re afraid there will be violence.”
      “Who do you think is going to be violent?”
      “Us.”

      The left told us that if Trump was elected, there would be more violence, and, sure enough, he was and the left got more violent.

      1. Right-wing violence has ‘accelerated’ in the US since Trump took office

        Far-right violence has been on the rise since President Donald Trump entered the White House, according to a new analysis from The Washington Post on global terrorism data.
        In 2018 alone, at least 20 people have been killed in alleged right-wing attacks, according to the research.
        Terrorism analysts told The Post the rise in right-wing extremism and violence was driven by “white anxiety” over former President Barack Obama and has “accelerated” under Trump.
        Far-right violence has been on the rise since President Donald Trump entered the White House, according to a new analysis from The Washington Post on global terrorism data.

        The report found that 92 out of 263 incidents of domestic terrorism between 2010 and the end of 2017 were committed by right-wing attackers, constituting a third of all incidents. Meanwhile, Islamist terrorists committed 38 attacks while left-wing attackers were responsible for 34 incidents.

        1. On the other hand – –
          http://thefederalist.com/2018/11/26/ washington-post-claims-theres-surge -right-wing-violence-isnt/

          1. Then again, even if we use the criteria offered by GTD, we need to be exceptionally generous to even get to 36 incidents of right-wing violence in 2017 (I could only find 32).

            The author at your link disputes four of the attacks (of 36).

            1. PB, it’s all bullshit. There is no real organized right wing violence. Unlike the left, who is consistently violent.

              1. Who said anything about “organized” right wing violence? The MAGA bomber and Pittsburgh shooter were lone wolf types like nearly all of them are.

                fucking Eric Rudolf was found alone in a brush pile.

                1. What’s with the weird obsession with a washed up nobody Republican?

                  And the funniest part is that you don’t even realize that your name literally means you’re a shithead!

                2. Still can’t find anymore examples to cite?

                3. Yep. A few rare out,jets. Ipunlike the left, who are populated with large numbers of rioting, raging, would be murderers. Without which, socialists couldn’t have murdered over a hundred million people in the 20th century. A number that today’s socialists are excited to top.

                4. 20 years ago

              2. Hey, LastoftheShitheads, Who the FUCK are you FASCISTS to criticise what a PRIVATE university does on PRIVATE land?.

                Versus over 200 years of oppression with STATE FORCE by the right?
                Who banned and burned books?
                Who censored Movies – TV — Speech?
                Who BURNED WITCHES AT THE STAKE.?

                More mindless hysteria by the alt-right. Self-righteous thugs.

                Shame on you whining pussies

                1. Okay I think this tops it. The whole thing in bold. Sublime. Like who on earth could not burst out laughing at someone that blissfully unaware of their own obnoxious absurdity? This parody has it locked down with clinical precision.

                  1. He’s legit mentally ill DP, I try not to laugh at him but he doesn’t make it easy.

                    He seems to be slipping into senility and that’s a horrible way to die, especially sonce he’s also unimportant, unsusscessful, and irrelevant.

                    1. I hope I decide to just kill myself before I devolve to Hihn’s level.

                  2. More Goobers

                    Who banned and burned books?
                    Who censored Movies – TV — Speech?

                    Cowardly pussies are SO easily triggered

                    Decosntructed Potatohead DENIES 200 years of PROVEN history.
                    Except Obama, who WAS born in Kenya!

                    1. “Who banned and burned books?
                      Who censored Movies – TV — Speech?
                      Who BURNED WITCHES AT THE STAKE.?”

                      Leftists.

                    2. FUCKUP #4! fot Inorrigible!

                      “Who banned and burned books?
                      Who censored Movies – TV — Speech?
                      Who BURNED WITCHES AT THE STAKE.?”

                      Leftists.

                      Did Trump tell you that? (snort)

                    3. It’s “Incorrigible” not “Inorrigible”

                    4. Who keeps copying and pasting the same things instead of debating in legitimate debate.

                2. Fascists are a kind of socialist. Another of Amrsism’s bastard children. Therefore not part of the right.

                  Also, fuck you Hihn bitch. And your faggot doxxing website. Gonna have to get you civilly committed.

                  1. Fascists are a kind of socialist. Therefore not part of the right.

                    Do you also believe the KKK was on the right? The white supremacists and neo-nazis who went full rogue in Charlottesvile.

                    Fascism has no public ownership, private, but with oppressive government regulation and control;.
                    Fascism can be either right or left, depending WHO the controls benefit.

                    Left-wing fascism, also called guild socialism, subordinates everything to labor unions. Mussolini.

                    Right-wing fascism is a corporate oligarchy, subordinating everything to corporations, Hitler.

                    Right-wing goober are either TOTALLY uneducated, or they say corporatism id LEFT-WING!!! (smork)

                    It’s all quite simple, to most of us. If a large enough faction wants to take total control, without communism, they have two choices … anyone else so hopelessly confused on Big Business versus Big Labor? Anyone with an IQ above 50?

                    1. I’m not a leftist, I just let them fuck me in the and defend them as though I were a leftist.

                3. Golly Hihnbitch, I thought left and right were identical. But here you are, once again, dumping solely on the right.

                  You’re just a commie cunt.

                  1. How CRAZY is LastoftheShitheads?

                    I thought left and right were identical

                    The defense rests.

                    1. I’m not a leftist, I just let them fuck me in the ass and defend them as though I were a leftist.

                  2. You’re just a commie cunt.

                    Or a Reason intern whose duties are to stir shit in HnR.

                4. Golly Hihnbitch, I thought left and right were identical. But here you are, once again, dumping solely on the right.

                  You’re just a commie cunt.

                  1. (boldface and tone in defense of MORE aggression by a serial stalking psycho)

                    I thought left and right were identical.

                    ADMITS his stupidity

                    But here you are, once again, dumping solely on the right.

                    1) LIAR Left – Right = Zero
                    2) Link me to aa left here. (sneer)

                    You’re just a commie cunt.

                    Since you think I’m Hihn I’ll use HIS website PROVE you a total psycho liar. (Somebody posted this link earlier)

                    http://libertyissues.com/reaso….._a_LIBRUL1

                    1. That is easily the dumbest website I’ve ever seen.

                    2. I love that he came in here, defensive, combative, and aggressive as all fuck, and then has the balls to call anyone else a cyberbully. It’s pretty amazing.

                    3. Please stop sending people to my website, I don’t want your traffic.

            2. The author at your link disputes four of the attacks (of 36).They LIE. Then line up for a MOB ASSAULT.

              The same MENTALITY as all that right-wing violence.

              1. Which still doesn’t come close to the amount of left wing violence.

                Awwww sore Hihney is sore!!

                  Which still doesn’t come close to the amount of left wing violence.

                  SEVEN FUCKUPS!

                  THIS one was jammed up your ass here

                  (yawn)

                  1. “Discussion of the number of victims of communist regimes has been, according to Klas-G?ran Karlsson, “extremely extensive and ideologically biased”.[30] Although any attempt to estimate a total number of victims of communism depends greatly on definitions,[31] several attempts to compile previously published data have been made.

                    According to R. J. Rummel’s book Death by Government (1994), about 110 million people,

                    1. Feel free to try to top that instead of talking about creepily anally raping people.

                    2. NOW EVEN CRAZIER …

                      PROVEN rightwing censorship IN America here is no big deal … BECAUSE ,,,,DICTATOrSHIPS LIKE Stalin, Hitler killed 110 million people

                      GOT IT?

                      HITLER GASSED THE JEWS, SO THE ALT-RIGHT AND CHRISTIAN TALIBAN CAN
                      Burn and ban books.
                      Censor Movies, TV and speech
                      WHICH IS WHAT CHRIST WOULD DO!!

                      EVEN SCARIER ….

                      THESE PEOPLE VOTE arrggghhh

              2. I’m not a leftist, I just let them fuck me in the and defend them as though I were a leftist.

                1. NOW he says jamming WORDS up his ass is RAPE!!!!

        2. So are you trying to assert that they’re worried about violent right wingers coming to campus and beating the shit out of people who want to see Shapiro speak? Because that’s the opposite of what’s been happening.

          Or are you just changing the subject…?.

          1. Not at all. I was countering Sevo the Dumbass’s assertion of The left told us that if Trump was elected, there would be more violence, and, sure enough, he was and the left got more violent.

            You see, the evidence proves the Sevo is wrong again. Trump was elected and the right got more violent.

            Of course he will call me a liar for using evidence and facts like he always does.

            1. “Trump was elected and the right got more violent.”

              And….so did the left. So his statement was not wrong, it was correct. He just left out 50% of the problem. You did too.

              1. Name one politically motivated homicide committed by a leftist since Trump’s election.

                1. “It’s not violence if nobody dies”. LOL.

                  A moftherfucker tried to shoot 25 Republican congresspeople, but he was incompetent so it’s not violence. Videos of Antifa beating the shit out of people are all over the internet, but beating the shit out of someone but it’s not violence because they’ve been lucky enough not to kill anybody.

                  The reason a lot of people here don’t like you is that you’re consistently intellectually dishonest. You’ve literally changed the subject twice in this little mini-thread.

                  1. The right kills far more people.

                    You lost. Accept that fact.

                    1. “You lost. Accept that fact.”

                      Bullshit. You must have a really sore back from continuously moving goalposts.

                      Remember, you’re the guy who couldn’t even admit that the Soviet-style campus show trials for sexual assault were started by the Obama Administration. You called that a lie too.

                      And apparently you’re fine with Antifa continually shutting down speakers on campus they don’t like. “I’m a classic liberal”. Bullshit.

                      Your side lost the last Presidential election to the biggest buffoon in America. Accept that fact.

                    2. And apparently you’re fine with Antifa continually shutting down speakers on campus they don’t like.

                      Lies.

                      I supported William Shockley speaking back in the 80’s when prog-nuts were shouting him down. I would support the speech of an idiot Holocaust denier.

                      I am a free speech Open Society absolutist.

                    3. “I supported ”

                      When are you gonna realize no one believes anything you say, you creepy obsessed with an irrelevant politician loser?

                      And I STILL cannot get over the fact that your screen name is an admission that you’re a shithead!

                    4. “I am a free speech Open Society absolutist.”

                      No. No you’re not. You’re a progressive SWJ who tries but fails – pathetically – to create some pretense that you’re some kind of balanced libertarian. Bullshit. The story that this comment stream is a response to is about the left shutting down yet another speech from the right on a college campus. In response, you can’t even say “Gonzaga is wrong”. All you can do is bash violence from the right, which has absolutely nothing – NOTHING – to do with the original post.

                      You’re a dishonest piece of garbage and I’m done with you.

                    5. “I am a free speech Open Society absolutist.”

                      The Open Society is a globlist Marxist front group. So by your own admission. You are a Marxist traitor, amd should be executed after a treason trial finds you guilty

                    6. “Sarah Palin’s Buttplug”

                      Hey weird creepy obsessive stalker-like self admitted shithead, you do realize he made you look even dumber than you normally do right?

                      And that everyone knows you’re a liar since you have never paid your bet and have lied about that and other things since?

                      You’re a known liar and a weird creepy obsessive stalker-like self admitted shithead.

                      Why on earth do you think anyone does anything but laugh at how pathetic you are?

                    7. Eat shit you liar.

                    8. No, that’s YOUR screen name.

                      Now pay your bet you proven welsher.

                    9. You’ll notice the self admitted shithead IMMEDIATELY flew off the handle whem reminded that everyonre knows he never paid his bet and has been lying about it for years.

                2. There was the attempted murder of several GOP congresscritters. Just because the left is incompetent and have bad aim doesn’t excuse their violence.

              2. Beavis the Butthead, Bend over, LIAR
                Let’s explore Trumptard’s BULLSHIT about violence on the left, again with proof. (sneer)
                Trump is ONE SICK FUCK

                Now Trump’s psychopathic lie, sucking up to white supremacists. Bad enough that he said both sides were to blame. But he also went bat-shit crazy, saying the counter-protesters charged the nazis, swinging clubs.

                The initial assault, Charlottesvile– Nazis and white supremacists attacking peaceful protesters with clubs
                “Alt-Left” standing peacefully, no visible clubs or bats.
                Alt-Right Facsists/Racists crash into them en masse, swinging clubs.
                Fascists are carrying the same shields as cops in riot gear. The motherfuckers CAME for violence

                Shame on Trump and the party who defends him
                Giving aid and comfort to the enemy is … treason

                These are Nazis, Racists and Jew-Haters. Ivanka and Jared are Jewish.
                Trump threw his own daughter under a bus, playing to the very worst in his base SHAMEFUL.

                To be fair, Trump’s base are ALL scum. Most are just easily manipulated snowflakes.

                1. What should I do if I shit myself and forgot where the toilet paper is?

                  1. Check your playpen and crib — sock puppet

                    1. Please stop sending people to my website, and I proved you wrong leftists killed more people than anyone else. My sourced arguments destroy your lunatic ravings.

  6. You know who else was a Jew who stirred things up?

    1. Hiram the kosher chef?

      1. Eddy, you so lazy. You could have googled “famous Jewish chefs,” like I did.

        1. In the time it took for you to look that up, I got in ahead of you.

          1. You Jews you lose, Backy.

    2. (((No idea)))

    3. Anthony Bourdain?

    4. Yotam Ottolenghi?

    5. Jesus. The answer he’s clearly looking for is “Jesus”.

    6. Meyer Fuckerfaster?

    7. Do you know who else was a Jew who stirred things up?

      You who lead over 200 years of oppression with STATE force … while whining like pussies about a PRIVATE school on PRIVATE land?

      The right. Every bit of it
      Book burning and bans.
      Movie censorship
      TV censorship
      Speech censorship
      BURNING WITCHES AT THE STAKE?

      Why of why can you people manage to be publicly humiliated so often, by your own ignorance of … Junior High knowledge. Disgraceful tribal bigotry. Moral hypocrisy on steroids

      1. Wait. Are you claiming libertarians burned witches or Republicans burned witches? Because either way you’re wrong. But you know which party lynched black people and even started a civil war to continue the practice of slavery?

        1. Wait. Are you claiming libertarians burned witches or Republicans burned witches?

          Wait. YOU THINK LIBERTARIANS ARE ON THE RIGHT??
          YOU THINK THERE WERE EITHER REPUBLICANS OR LIBERTARIANS IN 1692??

          . But you know which party lynched black people and even started a civil war to continue the practice of slavery?

          1) SECESSIONISTS WERE DEMOCRATS???? A PARTY FOUNDED BY THOMAS JEFFERSON (OMFG)
          2) THE TOPIC IS SUPPRESSION AND CENSORSHIP

          PLEASE PAY ATTENTION STALKER

      2. Zip ties. 10 for $10 on Amazon. Put a 32″ one around your neck and pull it tight, Hihn. Spare us all.

        1. MOAR PROOF … THE VICIOUS AGGRESSION COMES FROM THE RIGHT
          And kinda dumb, strategically. Just blindly attacking in mindless rage, flailing at the clouds.

    8. Son of Sam?

  7. Baddie Gi & Jade will take the place of that twerp Shapiro.

  8. “Concerns about a hostile environment and unspecified risks to members of the community did not stop the administration from hiring former Mizzou professor Melissa Click.”

    But at least Melissa Click is a faithful Catholic, at least by the standards of the new pontificate.

    Technically, on p. 11 of their Statement of Affirmation, committing the University to Catholic and Jesuit values, we see that students are supposed to be capable of

    “Thinking: reasoning, finding and evaluating information, and interpreting and performing critical analysis.

    “Communicating: exchanging information and ideas through effective use of listening, speaking, writing and technological tools”

    https://bit.ly/2req9PA

    Well, the College Republicans “found” a source of information for them to evaulate and interpret using listening.

    1. But at least Melissa Click is a faithful Catholic, at least by the standards of the new pontificate.

      Does she use reusable straws?

  9. You’d think that a university named for a genre of pornography would care a bit more about the freedom of speech.

    -jcr

    1. Free speech is a restriction on government, proggie.
      You’ve also attacked the right of a private university to choose its activities on private property.
      Perhaps you confused this with your own university, at Berkeley
      Are you not aware this is a libertarian web site? Wr defend the rights you would trash.

      1. “You’ve also attacked the right of a private university to choose its activities on private property.”

        As has been explained to you, they are not fully private. Tjey accept taxpayers money in the form of loans.

        Those loans DO NOT go to the student. They go to the University.

        You have made a fool of yourself again.

        1. They also take federal grants for research.

          It’s seldom a great idea to take the danegeld.

          1. As I’ve asked over a dozen time. how does that convert a private university to a public one?
            Why do you believe the government now controls every university in America once owned by the Catholic Church? Provide a source.

            P.S. Government grants comprise less than 1% of university funding. The rest comes from students and frees — originally from church collection plates. Since government now owns these schools, by paying less than 1% of their funding, which would probably be 0,001% of all assets including endowment funds .. how do you propose to end this blatant fascism, that only a handful of you even know of?

            What’s to stop government from seizing the hundreds of billions in endowment funds. since government owns them now?

            I am deeply indebted for you alerting us to this travesty, which nobody else is even aware of.
            God Bless!

  10. What was that about it being a MYTH that Ben Shapiro’s appearance will bring a high risk of THESE to campus? VIDEO CONFIRMATION! #Resist the right-wing DISINFORMATION campaign!!1!

  11. Sqrlsy was right, I’d rather see the girls of Gazonga University.

  12. Who cares what’s happening at a school that’s named after some kind of nasty cheese?

  13. “event would pose substantial risk to the safety of any member of our campus community”

    Why? Is Ben Shapiro going to DESTROY the students with FACTS and LOGIC?

    1. He’s going to OWN them, which of course is racist and contrary to the 13th Amendment.

    2. (laughing) I discovered him only recently. Confirms all those who say conservatism is dead.
      I guess you sucker easily. It’s called confirmation bias. He could bray like a jackass, but if it matches your own tribal bias.it’s like Holy Scripture. Hes not as crazy as Trump, but who is?

      It’s like those who adore Tucker Carlson and Judge Janine.
      Or Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes.
      All obsolete

  14. Jokes aside, the issue I have with the “protestors” who start riots over right wing speakers is not that they punish the speaker. It’s that they punish the students. They think they are the gatekeepers for what other adults are allowed to hear or read.

    Plus, I’m old enough to remember when Christian SoCons were society’s moral guardians.

    1. Tipper Gore > Jerry Falwell.

      1. What, you mean who you would rather? I reluctantly concur.

        1. Since it’s Crusty, I assume he is talking about which one is in top in a threesome involving both of them.

  15. Remember when Bernie Sanders spoke at Liberty University and there was a riot?

    Just kidding, nothing bad happened.

    1. Do you know WHY it never would. (lol)

      1. Because the Right isn’t batshit insane and is willing to listen to opposing views while the Left is incapable of the same?

        1. Charlottesville..
          Thank you for sharing your feelings

          The oppression of opposing views originated on the right over a century ago, less than a decade ago on the left. Book burning. Speech codes and censorship over movies, TV, libraries and speech. McCarthyism

          Also originating on the right, whining.
          .

          1. So there were a bunch of lnational socialists protesting, and the globalist communists showed up and started a riot with multiple street fights.

            That has nothing to do with the right.

            But you’re a moronic shitstain, so your confusion is understandable.

  16. Not to go all broken record, but we had Louis f’n Farrakhan speak back in the day, and the result was a few pointy editorials and a few people protesting with signs outside the venue. No riots, no bike locks, just normal public discourse/protest stuff.

    1. Translation: back in the day we were a bunch of feckless pussies.

    2. Columbia had Ahmedinijad there speaking. No riots.

      Head of the Minutemen spoke there also. Riots ensued.

      Apparently, Columbia’s left is quite pro theocracy.

  17. I cannot believe what has happened to Gonzaga over the last few years. I graduated from there in ’06 and it was a pretty centrist place. Active R, D, AND L clubs. I don’t know if it’s because the long time president Spitzer retired about a decade ago or what, but this is another bullshit move.

    Not only did that bitch from Mizzou get brought on to teach, but the fucking racist and proud communist Angie Davis was allowed to speak on campus last year! But man, after all the rioting the conservatives did on campus in response to that, no wonder they’re being cautious. (Do I need the sarc tag?)

    I don’t get it. Spokane isn’t even that blue. The city itself is, but the surrounding metro area is dark red, as is eastern WA as a whole.

    Fuck Gonzaga. Never getting another donation from me. And fuck you Rev and Assplug and you’re equivocating bullshit. When the right commits violence, it is called out and (deservedly) punished. The left? They get rewarded and pandered to. Fuck every last soulless socialist piece of shit. Each of you can DIAF.

    1. Right-wing nuts are far more violent than lefties.

      For the record I applaud the ACLU for supporting the Klan’s right to march in Skokie. I don’t take the side of the little butthurt students.

      I may be the only true independent that posts here. Most of you Peanuts are conservative.

      1. Marcie was certainly a conservative, with her deferential language. Maybe a Log Cabin Republican.

        Frida (sp?) would have been a Republican, with her fashion sense.

      2. Fuck you.

        You’re a liar.

        Pay your bet, shiteater.

        1. You’re a typical conservative. Void of ideas, filled with hatred of non wingnuts. Lies all the time. You can’t debate but instead toss lies and ad hominems around just like Breitbart did.

          Is that fucker still dead? Eaten alive by his own bile. Sad little bastard.

          1. Awwww you’re so brilliant and wise. Yet you can’t pay a bet.

            I didn’t give a shit about Breitbart and his joke of a “news” corp. And I’m fine they let Angie Davis speak. It’s called the freedom of speech. I didn’t like what she has to say, but I didn’t call and threaten or protest to see if they could cancel her appearance!

            But you don’t care because she’s on your side. No yeah, I’m the one whose concepts of freedoms is out of whack. Eat shit coward.

            1. You began by attacking me, asshole.

              I am a Hayek classic liberal and like him I have no use for conservatives. Angela Davis would call me an evil capitalist white devil.

              That is what pisses you off – that I escaped the GOP plantation.

              1. You know, I did call you out. Regardless of my thoughts on you, it was childish and I apologize.

                Honestly, I don’t care what plantation you’re on. Part of our country’s problems is the undying devotion to a “plantation”. I would rather, and in fact do, have friends who are lefties that support the bill of rights fully than a flag-waving, mindless drone for ‘Murcia.

                What I don’t like about your approach is how you shrug off shit like this. You’re okay with conservative speech being shut down and chalk it up to it just “kids being kids”. This shit is happening constantly in supposedly world-class colleges and universities throughout the US.

                They’re supposed to be the guardians of academic knowledge and help craft the minds of tomorrow; they’re being turned into left-wing safe zones and you seem to be okay with that.

                If it was a few schools, I wouldn’t care either. This is clearly systemic, though, and if these are tomorrow’s leaders, then we’re all fucked. The left has been pushing soft power in schools for decades and it’s finally paying off.

                1. You’re okay with conservative speech being shut down and chalk it up to it just “kids being kids”

                  I NEVER have said that! I am a free speech absolutist – which is why I brought the Klan’s march up.

                  There is nothing “progressive” about me unless the slavery Amendments (13-15) are still considered progressive.

                  1. Naw, you’re a proven liar who picks a screen name that literally means you’re a shithead.

                    And you let progressives ass fuck you for free.

      3. “Right-wing nuts are far more violent than lefties.”
        The 20th century calls you a fucking liar.

        1. Charlottesville
          Need more?

          1. Two,groups,of socialists? Try again cunt.

            1. White supremacists are pro-Trump, NOT left wing.
              Neo-nazis are pro-Trump, NOT left wing.

              Hitler nazis were NOT left wing. Fascists can be either left or right.
              Private property, . with oppressive government controls, have TWO alternatives

              There are two competing major factions in any private ownership economy.
              SAME AS HERE! Labor vs Capital. Unions vs Corporations.

              Mussolini’s fascism was controlled by labor unions, also known as guild socialism. the left.
              Hitler’s was controlled buy a corporate oligarchy. the Right,

              If you knew German history, the National Socialists competed for control with communism. Hitlers Germany and Russia were enemies. It was Russians trying to communize Germany. Hitler invaded Russia, in the opposite direction from the war, which was a disaster, because he feared an attack from the rear.

              History can be complicated. Here’ s the easy way. Simply name a communist country governed by a party with socialist in its named. Simple.

              BTW. communes can also be on the right — voluntary ones.. Most of the over 100 religious communes in our history were conservative. Their breakaway was similar to today’s fundamentalists.

              Try again cunt.

              I shall not respond further unless you ask with civility, as an adult.

              Seeing you elsewhere on this page, I shall not hold my breath

      4. Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

        That’s a good one demfag.

    2. Angela Davis?

      By Jove, you’re right!

      “She also dismissed the notion that the United States ever evolved into a society free of racial disparities. While Barack Obama was president, she said, a prisoner told her, “It may be true that there is one black man in the White House, but there are over a million black men in the big house.”

      “Such insights, she said, have been integral in her academic work at the University of California. She has written more than a dozen books spanning issues of feminism and misogyny, Marxism, popular music, mass incarceration, racism and African American history.”

      There was a time when someone with her kind of Communist background would only speak at a Catholic University if it was on the subject of “How I Left Communism and Found Christ.”

      1. Angela Davis is looney tunes. She is taken even less seriously than Cynthia McKinney is.

        Their equivalent on the right are people like David Duke, Pat Robertson, and Jerry Falwell Jr.

        1. Angela Davis’ Archive Comes to Harvard
          The papers illuminate her rise from philosophy professor to global icon and activist

          “Currently, the library is sorting and digitizing the material, which will be available for research by 2020. But Snibbe reports that people interested in the archive won’t have to wait that long for a peak inside?a series of events in 2019 will take place to recognize the archive, including an exhibition and a conference featuring Davis herself.”

          1. “Famed political activist and scholar Angela Davis took the stage at the Harvard Art Museums’ Menschel Hall on Thursday to share her views about immigrants’ rights….

            “Davis was guest speaker at a screening of “Asmarina,” an event co-sponsored by the DACA Seminar….

            “Other sponsors of the screening were the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, the Harvard Art Museums, the Inequality Initiative (Social Science Dean’s Office), the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, and the Schlesinger Library.”

            1. This is a link

              “On Thursday, scholar-activist Angela Davis will sit down for a Q&A on her experience fighting for social justice in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Global 1968. The event will be moderated by English professor Michele Elam and Gabriella Johnson ’17 and is hosted by the Division of Literature, Cultures and Languages (DLCL)….

              “”2018 marks the 50th anniversary of a series of seminal events in world history,” said Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow and DLCL Lecturer Elizabeth Marcus, who organized the event alongside department chair Dan Edelstein.”

              1. Elevating her to status as a “scholar” is a form of affirmative action.

                1. Harvard and Stanford are among our top liberal/libertarian institutions!

      2. The Pope is literally a communist

          1. Liberation Theology is neither. It was formed to address a much higher degree of poverty in Latin America, versus the Catholic Church’s base in Europe. Different priority and focus, Pope Francis is in that faction.

            My ex-Brother-in-Law was a Catholic missionary in El Salvador, back when they were killing nuns. He adopted Revolution Theology down there. I once heard him defend America regarding slavery, with the most brilliant and powerfui argument I’ve still ever heard.

            Paraphrased from memory. “Slavery was certainty shameful, but it came t this continent, along with its culture fro. It had existed since the Old Testament, for thousands of year, but we ended it on less than 90 years. In our own new culture. I won’t say we can be proud of that, but we certainly have nothing to be ashamed of.”

            He was a lefty. Still practiced RevolutionTheology back in the US. But I’ve never head anything even half as good from the right. And many on the right have a greatly distorted view of the left. which as as many different strains.as the right.

            NOTHING in Pope Francis’s history has even a hint of Communist or Peronist views.
            P.S. I’m a devout atheist.

            P.S. Technically 110 years, including the Confederacy.
            .

      1. *throws trident into the fray*

        1. [throws boomerang]

        2. ouch!

    3. And fuck you Rev

      I had not participated in this one, but because you invited me . . .

      You, HGW xx/7, are precisely the type of bigoted, character-deprived, right-wing dumbass who makes it such a privilege to mock half-educated, faux libertarian, hicks-and-sticks Republicans. You also are the type of stale-thinking, white nationalist dimwit who makes it worthwhile to work for continuing liberal-libertarian progress in America. That liberal-libertarian mainstream has been shaping American progress against the wishes and works of losers like you for at least a half-century, and all you can do is whimper about it. So keep whining, HGW xx/7, because it helps your betters understand that jerks like you are losing, and that we have won the culture war, which means you will toe the line on our preferences for the rest of your deplorable life. Complain all you want in a free country, but you will obey your betters.

      Now be nice, or we may start positioning that progress sideways before we shove more of it down your whining, inconsequential throat.

      1. How are you gonna do that when you keep losing elections?

      2. When the deplorables get sent to re-education camp, it will be the rev’s voice they’ll hear over the loudspeakers, mocking their defiance of historical progress.

        1. He’ll be the Lord Haw-Haw of the SJW dictatorship.

      3. Awesome! The rev personally riffed on me! I’m touched, truly.

        Now, give mom back her thesaurus and get ready for bed, sweet’ums. You got a big day at school tomorrow. Did someone say fingerpaints? đŸ˜€

    4. When the right commits violence, it is called out and (deservedly) punished.

      Allow me to PROVE how TOTALLY brainwashed you are.

      Now Trump’s totally psychopathic lie about Charlottesvile, sucking up to white supremacists. Bad enough that he said both sides were to blame. But he also went bat-shit crazy, saying the counter-protesters charged the nazis, swinging clubs. He is one sick fuck. UNDENIABLE proof

      The initial assault, Charlottesvile– Nazis and white supremacists attacking peaceful protesters with clubs
      “Alt-Left” standing peacefully, no visible clubs or bats.
      Alt-Right Facsists/Racists crash into them en masse, swinging clubs.
      Fascists are carrying the same shields as cops in riot gear. The motherfuckers CAME for violence

      Shame on Trump and the party who defends him
      Giving aid and comfort to the enemy is … treason

      These are Nazis, Racists and Jew-Haters. Ivanka and Jerod are Jewish.
      Trump threw his own daughter under a bus, playing to the very worst in his base SHAMEFUL.

      Left – Right = Zero
      And their loyal goobers.

  18. Threaten to cause violence if x person speaks. Yeah tel me who the fascists are

    1. estevbv7
      Threaten to cause violence if x person speaks. Yeah tel me who the fascists are

      Why lie so shamelessly about this?

      PROOF of your tribal bias is uppage.

      Any questions

  19. Also, if you are a student who would think shouting down a speaker is appropriate, you do not belong in university and should be expelled. If things like this doesn’t show you that too many are going to college that don’t belong there, I don’t know what would

    1. I agree with you – maybe for the first time ever.

      1. See. That wasn’t hard. It is possible for you to post without flinging heaps of vitriol and unfounded accusations. Well done. You’ll find you get on a lot better in life when you’re not being a sour cunt accusing everyone of being a “conservative” or whatever you happen to be lashing out with.

        1. I would find PB tolerable if he could do this more often.

    2. That hasn’t happened here.
      If you think students and/or leftist are the only ones who do that .. while you ignore FAR worse offenses by GOVERNMENT censorship of speech, movies, TV and books … including jail time…. ENTIRELY from the right, … can we trust you to properly distinguish between shouting down a speaker and exercising free speech?

      Do you defend our lying sack of shit President, for defending such vicious violence by the far-right in Charlottesville. Would there be a mob of Gonzaga students attacking a speaker with clubs and shields which prove they CAME for violence?

      Just askin’

  20. When I was in college our controversial speakers were the Timothy Leary/G.Gordon Liddy Roadshow. It was very entertaining and I could cheer enthusiastically for “both sides”

    1. If only Leary had been more sober and Liddy had been more stoned.

    2. I got to see Lester Thurow debate George Gilder at UGA.

      They were not like “debates” today. They were both actually good at debate.

      1. I’ve found that listening to/watching debates fro previous decades, that in general, people were better at listening to each other, definitely. You could listen to someone speak, disagree with them, but respect the fact that they made their arguments cogently and thoughtfully.

        1. Hence, gridlock.

          Now, those who *know* what the right thing is, and who *know* that anyone who disagrees with them is an evildoer trying to trick them into straying from the Right Path, will have no truck with time-wasting “debates” when they could simply be following these simple rules:

          -destroy your enemies

          -see them driven before you

          -hear the lamentations of their significant others and domestic partners

    3. way to rep Dutchess County. Lol u r old.

  21. Rev. Arthur L. Kirkland is precisely the type of bigoted, ego character-driven, left-wing dumbass who makes it such a privilege to mock his ascot wearing, city slicker fancy pants elite pals who lamely mock those ‘rubes,’ whereas the so call rubes have more character in their calloused hands than the Rev and his fancy pants elite chums, with all their fancy French wines and cheeses that smell like an old man’s feeble but deadly farts.

    1. Rock, I hate to break it to you, but Rev. Arty is not as you describe him. He is not an educated elite. He is a high school dropout assistant janitor who cleans up after his wealthy conservative boss.

      Not elite, just filled with envy and hatred, and he has no education.

      1. I don’t know if the asshole rev is educated beyond secondary school, but if you look at the history of claims, it is his (by innuendo) and Tony’s by direct claim, that they have advanced degrees.
        By accident, I found I have a customer and a friend who has two doctorates in STEM subjects, both of which are so math-heavy, he probably could have taken a third in math with another quarter or two. When I congratulated him, he simply said ‘Dave is fine’ (not real name).
        Like the ‘world famous’ restaurant; if it were, there would be no reason to make the claim. The asshole rev has shown nothing to suggest he has more than a GED, so innuendos suggesting otherwise can be safely ignored.
        Tony, AFAICT, is a LA grad, with a real lack of ANY education or interest in learning about any subjects other than what he got in his 4 years of LA courses.
        Like the asshole rev, he never posts a link, nor makes any comment suggesting he has any interest at all beyond promoting the D tribe. Oh, and early in the day drinking.

        1. Put another way:
          Those who tend to be educated are such because of a native curiosity which is typically manifest in their communication, including posting on a public site; interests which would lead to posting regarding issues peripheral but germane to the subject at hand, with some source-cites.
          Both the asshole rev and Tony have shown none of that at all. At best, turd manages to find irrelevant or dishonest cites regarding the hag’s loss and Obo’s ‘greatness’.
          OBL is a better troll than any of those three, but remains a one-trick-pony.

          1. “Sum up! Sum up!”
            OK: We deserve better trolls

            1. Yes, we could do better than you, I agree.

              1. “Yes, we could do better than you, I agree.”
                And that is the best you can do, proving that dimbulb assholes remain dimbulb assholes.
                Fuck off, Hihn. You bring nothing to the table other than your vintage ‘whinery’ that you and that miserable hag lost.
                Let me repeat:
                Fuck off, Hihn.

            2. And telling Hihn to fuck off is incumbent upon us all.

              1. Thank ypu for proving me right Shevo, your salty vag whining is low quality and easily topped by even a grade C replacement.

              2. And is the poster currently using the Hihn handle actually Hihn? Or another antagonistic asshole?

  22. Why does Gonzaga even allow a College Republican club on campus? Any Republican speaker they bring in can be demonized as a threat to someone on campus. Sooner or later the conservatives will decide to no longer roll over for this censorship and there will be brawls on campuses. Why do I get the impression that that’s exactly what the left is hoping will happen?

  23. University administrator is a hypocrite.

    In other news, water is wet and puppies are cute.

  24. Worst chat room ever

    1. Clearly, you’ve never stumbled into any of the messageboards for furries that litter the interwebs.

      1. Who are the weirder pack of pervs, furries or HnRers?

        1. Better yet, what’s the intersection? Do we have any intersectionality experts here?

          1. No, that wasn’t actually better at all.

            Why are you such an incredibly shitty poster?

          2. Well, is the intersection like a 4-way?

      2. Hehe. Furries…litter… I dig ya.

  25. Credit where due. Exactly correct Robby.

  26. I essentially started three weeks past and that i makes $385 benefit $135 to $a hundred and fifty consistently simply by working at the internet from domestic. I made ina long term! “a great deal obliged to you for giving American explicit this remarkable opportunity to earn more money from domestic. This in addition coins has adjusted my lifestyles in such quite a few manners by which, supply you!”. go to this website online domestic media tech tab for extra element thank you……
