What Is Wrong, A Simple Answer

Reader comment on item: My Disrupted Talk at the University of California-Irvine
in response to reader comment: What's wrong with protesting? Or is it just what's being protested?

Submitted by AnneM (United States), Feb 8, 2007 at 13:10

What is wrong is that the protestors were preventing a noted speaker from giving a speech on issues of the Middle East that was of interest to those who wanted to attend. There was time and effort put in to get Dr. Pipes to speak at UC/Irvine. What had happened was nothing short then being not considerate to both the visiting speaker and for those who wanted to listen. It would have been better for the protestors to have kept it outside the theater in an area close to the theater. Plus it reflects badly on UC/Irvine.
