Rioting lesbians have stormed a speech by "Born Gay Hoax" author Ryan Sorba on the campus of Smith College in Massachusetts, shutting down his address, according to two major pro-family organizations, Americans for Truth and Mass Resistance.
"Beware lesbians with frying pans (if you care about free speech)," AFT said in his announcement. "Lesbian activists at Smith College just couldn't stand by and let a young critic explain his views about the supposed innateness of homosexuality so they stormed Ryan Sorba's speech on the 'Born Gay Hoax' and forced him to end it prematurely."
"Thus they decided for everyone in the room supporters, foes, the curious and the undecided whether Sorba's arguments would be heard. Stalin would be proud," said AFT's Peter LaBarbera.
"Brian Camenker, Amy Contrada and the dedicated folks at MassResistance.org have captured the totalitarian episode on film for the world to see. Kudos to MassResistance for once again chronicling the anti-democratic antics of the 'gay' Left for the record. It is absolutely shameful that Smith College and Massachusetts authorities would allow Sorbas First Amendment rights to be neutralized in of all places the academy, which is supposed to be a place where opposing ideas can be debated freely," he said.
President Carol Christ noted in a memo "to the Smith Community" after the attack that "on a pragmatic level, after about 10 minutes the speaker could not be heard" and suggested a strategy to defeat such statements that homosexuality is not innate.
"When faced with the visit of a controversial speaker, our challenge as a community is to reaffirm our commitment to teaching and learning. Hearing the views of someone with whom you disagree affords the opportunity to sharpen one's own counterarguments, displaying the weaknesses in their reasoning or evidence," she wrote.

That had to be one ugly riot.
Our rights to freedom of speech are being systematicly destroyed by liberals.
Once again the open minded, peaceful, left demonstrates its true nature.
Good name for a rock band!
If people are “born gay” that would mean that there is a “gay gene” that has yet to be identified. Should this ever be identified, would gays really want that information to be let out given pre-natal testing and the easy availability of abortion “services?”
Are there any pictures? :)
“Lesbians riot at Smith College”
Can’t be the first time, won’t be the last
Nancy Reagan went to Smith, before it went for comfortable shoes....
There is a joke about Northampton and changing litebulbs, but I will pass....
This just shows the "Pink Hand" for the fascist, cretinous, gang of thugs and villains that they are.
Hmmm, one of these could be the next president.
Some images and videos at link below.
If abortion on demand is going to remain the law then that information should be available to all prospective parents.
Maybe we can take up a collection and use that to send the “girls” to Denver in August. I’m sure they’d fit right in.
Is the low class behavior genetic or environmental?
I repled that if there was genetic proof then there could be genetic testing, and I'd welcome you and everyone else to the Pro-Life side. That freaked her out and she left me alone. I'm guessing that she wasn't pro-life at the time, but I gave her something to think about.
