    ““His work and views are not representative of the student body, and as such we do not see his visit as a valuable contribution to the University.”

    What is astonishing about this statement is not so much that they don’t want to hear him because they disagree with him – unfortunately, that is hardly an uncommon sentiment.
    It is the brazen public admission that they think they know what views are ‘representative’ and that only ‘representative’ views should be heard – coming from a university, of all places. It is simply an attempt to censor what their students should hear.

    “Softly spoken, highly-educated, liberal-minded people have become unwilling to accommodate or tolerate dissenting opinion”.

    Bit of a sweeping generalisation based on a few withdrawn speaker invitations at universities.
