Perpetually trying to pigeon-hole you, having no knowledge of what you say or what you are about, trying to bring up the most destructive anti-Pipes literature I've heard.

You came out of it pretty well, but not great. It just wasn't your forum.

What she said, and what the truth is to these loaded phrases:
"There were protests for you and against you". [Implying what's your problem]

Well, maybe that some people stand up for free speech makes it okay for others to be against it?

"Your critics claim you are doing the same thing to them." [,Mr. McCarthy]

Well, is there no difference between using government (including government university) power to enforce a point of view, and a private citizen speaking his mind on his own time?

"So, you are saying America is at war with its Muslim population?" [,Mr. Hitler]

No, just those militant Muslims at war with America.
