Here is video of Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio being heckled out of an event on the campus of Arizona State University. Arpaio has been strong on cracking down on illegal immigration, and protesters showed up to drown him out as he tried to answer questions at an event on the ASU campus. The protesters began singing, making it impossible for the Sheriff to be heard. He eventually simply got up and walked out, ending the forum. University officials said the protesters' actions were "very shortsighted."
It warms your heart to see that liberal First Amendment tolerance for diversity of opinion on display. . . . (VIDEO)

Its a STATE university. What do you expect?
Here we go again. Liberals at colleges simply do not believe in free speech.
Better not run afoul of the law Kiddies. Uncle Joe has some pink underwear waiting for you.
Bad move for any Real American, going into enemy territory like that...the enemy within, y’know...behind enemy lines...
Typically stupid - I’m sure the faculty on campus were delighted.
If the Dean of the University spoke out against these jerks after the fact, why didn’t he simply have them removed from the auditorium? Let them do their singing outside.
Law and above all O R D E R. Anything short of that is anarchy and should have been a task of the swat team to restore.
It is no surprise, really. College campus leftists are the most radical and do not believe in free speech unless it only applies to them. I’m sure the campus staff/officials didn’t throw out the protesters as they want to hinder the “free speech” of the protesters.
All you have to do is take a look at California. They don't like it at all.
Exactly. He seems a smart fellow. I can’t imagine why he would agree to play by the enemy’s rules, in the enemy’s territory - unless it was to allow the enemy the chance to expose himself.
PS Following the restoration of order, the President of the State University would have been removed from office. End of story.
I’d like to nominate Sheriff Joe to be Ms. Clinton’s replacement. Effective Immediately!
College students - not old enough to have had life experience, not paid taxes to earn a say, and influenced by marxist tenured professors that hate America.
Why would a sane person even give them the time of day?
My oldest two were warned when they went off to college that if they participated in riots, protests, or other behavior they hadn’t earned AND it was on our dime - they had better hope the National Guard gets there before the parents do....
If conservative students had behaved that way towards a scum speaker they would have been forced to make a public apology at the least. More likely would have been kicked out for “hate speech.”
This sounds worse than the treatment Jeane Kirkpatrick got when she tried to give a speech at UC Berkeley in the early 1980s—in that case I think it was just a small minority who were heckling her. The left has gotten more aggressive in shutting down views they disagree with.
1) Why didn’t the campus cops remove the hecklers from a sanctioned campus event?
2) What issue was being protested? I’m “assuming” it had to do with illegals but the article didn’t explain.
3) Who exactly were these hecklers? Again, I’m “assuming” they were illegals who were getting a free education at US taxpayers’ expense.
“Exactly. He seems a smart fellow. I cant imagine why he would agree to play by the enemys rules, in the enemys territory - unless it was to allow the enemy the chance to expose himself.”
All I can think of...just wanted to make a point as to letting the libs show themselves for what they are...
