CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Campus police used pepper spray on student protesters angry over immigration issues who disrupted a speech by former Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Hundreds of protesters denouncing Tancredo's tough stances against illegal immigration gathered at Bingham Hall on Tuesday evening, shouting profanities at the former Colorado congressman, who tried to speak about his opposition to in-state tuition for unauthorized immigrants.
Tancredo left after a protester broke a window and police shut down the event. He had been invited by a student group that opposes mass immigration and multiculturalism.

Your “right” to “free speech” does not include interrupting some group that is peacefully gathered (the conservatives).
Same with the pinko witch who interrupted John McCain's GOP acceptance speech.
Here is it’s companion article in the Raleigh News and Obstructor:
Ah..... Freedom of Speech.
You gotta love it./sarcasm
I think this is just the beginning.....as more Americans step up to make thier voices be heard, those on the left are going to come out in full force to shut us down.
It can get real ugly.
Typical for the People’s Republic of Chapel Hill. Marxist display to deny the freedom of speech of a conservative. In this society of Barack Omamamamabamamama, only those who follow the Great Zero will be allowed to speak.
Were the protesters ‘right-wing extremists’ on the DHS list? /rhetorical?
No surprise students are intolerant of free speech that disagrees with their point of view. It’s what they’ve been learning from their teachers and professors for years and years.
Liberal brown shirted fascists need to be meet with greater force. It is way past time to teach them a lesson.
These protests are led by students who have drank the liberal Kool-aid their professors have fed them. They havent started paying taxes yet. Wait until these students become more Conservative after they have started paying through the nose for illegals to live here.
Right now Momma and Daddy are providing for them, when they have to provide for themselves ,and illegals too their positions will change.
Leftist have never been about the truth, because the truth hurts.
So they resort to the childish tactics.
Tempers are flaring. The left keeps pushing and pushing, their way and their way only. The crap will hit the fan alot sooner than we may think.
Don’t you like how wral.com uses the term, “unauthorized immigrants?”
Someone should tell the pc-fascists at wral.com that they are called ILLEGAL ALIENS!
Where is John Galt
It’s a revolt against the “physicists” and truth. Ever since the US got the bomb, it’s been a nono for America to figure things out.
Actually it's late, and possibly too late. The way that schools in our country have been allowed to become nothing more than indoctrination pens is the primary reason for what exists in our government presently.
Wasn’t it convenient for Obstuctor to begin the article with Campus police using pepper spray and threatening to taze people. If your believed the propaganda, you would think that the police were the brutish thugs instead of the Multicultural Marxists.
College used to be a place where you intelligently described your opinion and backed it up with spirited debate. A necessary skill in life.
Alas, those days are long gone.
Sad to see how the leftist cancer has taken over UNC!!! Whatever happened to free speech???? Free speech is only for the radical left!!
They've been doing a great job of that for years. Our side absolutely SUCKS at countering them.
Yep. They're all about feeeeeeeeeeeelings.
