Last week, Black Lives Matter shut down an ACLU freedom of speech gathering held at William & Mary College. Not even five minutes went by before the Q&A was disrupted. The protesters stormed the stage where Virginia’s ACLU Executive Director, Claire Guthrie Gastañaga stood helplessly.
On September 27, the planned topic of discussion was, “Students and the First Amendment.” That discussion never took place.
Gastañaga was briefly introduced by a student, but never got a chance to get her argument out, as sign-wielding protesters chanted pointed slogans such as “liberalism is white supremacy,” and “the revolution will not uphold the constitution.”
After twenty minutes of the sustained, anti-racist din, one of the Black Lives Matter protesters was approached by Hasini Bandara, Director of Internal Affairs with Alma Mater Productions (who co-sponsored the event with the ACLU) and given a microphone. The unnamed activist read froma prepared statement, saying:
When is the free speech of the oppressed protected? We know from personal experience that rights granted to wealthy, white, cis, male, straight bodies do not trickle down to marginalized groups. We face greater barriers and consequences for speaking.
A #BlackLivesMatter group was in the news recently for busting into the historic Cheshire Inn in St. Louis. The protesters banged on doors and walked the halls chanting.
