Protesters Interrupt Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Speech at U. Minnesota

Protesters Interrupt Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Speech at U. Minnesota

It’s so edgy, you guys.

The University of Minnesota Law School invited Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett to speak at its Robert A. Stein lecture series.

Professor Larry Jacobs committed a horrible sin. He invited Barrett and others to speak during the “Conservative Voices” part of the series. He wanted to….bring other voices to campus!

How dare he!

Students, alumni, and activists threw a hissy fit. Over 700 petitioned the school to remove her from the series.

The school said no.

People protested.

Well, some protesters did more than protest. Some interrupted Barrett’s speech.

Typical leftists. They can’t debate the points, so they try to cancel them or drown them out with their insipid whining.

Minnesota is a No-Go Zone. What they need is a healthy and painful dose of reality of how to respect others.

They should be prosecuted, and if they are indeed students, they should be suspended for the remainder of 2023-24 school year.

Minnesota is owned by Nazi-wokists. Non-woke opinions are violence. Has Justice Barrett been living under a rock?

    She’s not nearly as conservative as we have been led to know

    When Feinstein was drooling with how smart and wonderful Amy was

    I knew we were in trouble

      While she is good – not great – as a nominee and better than any Democrat radical and better than that weasel Souter … and will forever get points for her overturn on Roe …

      … she definitely is not fully the kind of judge I am looking for.

      We need judges who are going to break apart the administrative state and overturn lousy precedents and stand strong on the 1st and 2nd amendments.

      I think she is going to prove moderately conservative … not a Souter.

      But never Clarence Thomas, a true giant of the court.

      CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | October 17, 2023 at 9:46 am

      She isn’t a clone of Thomas but she’s way better than the three liberal to progressive members of SCOTUS. More consistent than Roberts as well.

I’m of a mind that only two things will alter such behavior.

First, donors to the law school need to turn off the spigot.

Second, and more importantly, those law firms and companies that would otherwise recruit from U. Minn need to ask, “were you among the protesters who shouted “F-ACB” or “F-the Supreme Court”?

I’m tired of wasted words, righteous outrage, and tsk, tsk-ing. Fine, hate who we are as a country, government and free speach

No worries.

Have a great life, but no top law firm, nor corporate in-house counsel is hiring your for a hundred thousand dollar job.

Given the craven nature of the hard left today – which seems to be worsening with every passing year – I think the threat to conservative justices is likely worse than the contemporary threat to any US president, particularly a Democrat US president. One of the biggest reasons for this is simply the matter of protection capabilities. While the US Marshals are very competent, they’re not the USSS. Yes, the Justices can’t hide in their homes. But, I’m not sure if a venue like this is smart, from a threat protection perspective.

Put more simply, If a Supreme Court Clerk will take the unprecedented step of leaking a draft opinion in order to change a case’s outcome, there’s likely no much limit to what a more unbalanced person might do.

They crossed the Rubicon several years ago now. Throw them in solitary confinement for an indefinite period of time.

I would bet my retirement that many of those protesters and haters of the Constitution are getting Federal loans to pay for their classes.

If they hate the US so much, then they should be going to law school on their own dime. Cancel their student loans, NOW.

The irony? They don’t know a damn thing about “democracy.”

    Unfortunately the first amendment means you can’t cancel their loans on the basis of their opinions, or make the loans conditional on having the right opinions.

    You could do it on the basis of the breach of university rules, or on the basis of their discourtesy, but only if you do the same to everyone with a comparable violation.

      Cancelling their loans is what they want. I think you mean refusing to supply future loans not yet disbursed.

        Milhouse in reply to healthguyfsu. | October 18, 2023 at 1:12 am

        Yes, I’m sure that is what the Sgt meant; or maybe cancelling the loans and calling them in.

        In either case it can’t be done on the basis of the students’ exercise of a constitutional right. Which is unfortunate in this case, but fortunate in general.

      “Unfortunately the first amendment means you can’t cancel their loans on the basis of their opinions, or make the loans conditional on having the right opinions.”

      Really? Because I still have a reasonably good memory of the loyalty oath I was required to swear to under pain of perjury to qualify for my National Defense Education Loan.

        Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | October 18, 2023 at 1:10 am

        That was part of your military duties, not a condition of the loan itself.

        It is unconstitutional to condition any generally available government benefit on waiving any constitutional right, or to deny it on the basis of the exercise of a constitutional right. Congress doesn’t have to make loans available at all, but if it chooses to do so it can’t make them available only to those who express opinions it likes.

Murderous thugs is all they are. I saw the abortion signs, they’re just wanton miurderers.

    Milhouse in reply to 4fun. | October 17, 2023 at 7:18 am

    No, they’re not murderers, they just advocate murder. If they were med students some of them might be murderers, or at least future murderers, but that’s not so likely at law school.

      MoeHowardwasright in reply to Milhouse. | October 17, 2023 at 9:19 am

      Have you read about the number of recidivist felons let out on no bond? Have you seen the carnage and death those decisions have caused? Dead fathers, mothers, children, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics! All caused by lawyers who have become judges. So yes, they do become murderers or at least accessory to murder.

The mere having a talk, as a social form, presumes that there is a structure to the world that can be reported, and so speaking is a sensible thing to do.

Interruptions presume that there is a structure and it should not be reported.

So ACB with x’s through her eyes is OK, but Sarah Palin’s cross-hairs map draws the left’s ire?

The left has no self awareness.

    Paul in reply to MrE. | October 17, 2023 at 12:21 am

    Shit eating embiciles rarely do.

    Milhouse in reply to MrE. | October 17, 2023 at 7:21 am

    That was always fake ire, and in any case most of these kids weren’t even politically aware 13 years ago.

      CommoChief in reply to Milhouse. | October 17, 2023 at 9:58 am

      The internet is forever and there have been several reminders of that same event and the double standard employed when the leftists have used similar imagery multiple times since then.

      They are adult men and women not ‘kids’. Buying into the idea of extended adolescence and that young men and women shouldn’t be held accountable for their actions is a bad idea IMO. It’s led to bad outcomes. When we choose to withhold consequences they come to believe that consequences don’t exist and they can do whatever they wish with impunity.

      See the many leftist voices shocked that their support of Hamas and condemnation of Israel has had consequences. Probably for the first time many of them to understand that X action leads to Y pain. When we don’t impose the pain of consequences we deny them the best teacher.

The key question is what punishment and accountability will be imposed on the removed protesters?

    wendybar in reply to lawgrad. | October 17, 2023 at 4:47 am

    It’s cute that anybody still thinks the left will be punished and that accountability will be imposed on them. We live in a different world now, where you must be silenced and will be thrown in the DC gulag if you do what the left does whilst being conservative.

Steven Brizel | October 17, 2023 at 5:55 am

These students should be doxxed and deemed beyond the pale of future employers and especially law school , admission to the bar in anyb state and employment by any law firm

As a U of M alumnus, I am ashamed.

Court should have a rule that if any school or organization that prevents a Justice from speaking, no one speaks there.

Law schools need to enforce respect for the courts.

Every law student who misbehaved needs to be identified and punished!

Capitalist-Dad | October 17, 2023 at 9:34 am

Nothing but weakling know-nothings spouting slogans and mindless insults any wino can come up with. Incapable of logical reasoning, and unable to make a sound argument. Why in the world are such indoctrinated dullards majoring in law when they have no discernible skills to be competent lawyers?

I believe people have threatened Amy’s kids to influence her votes on SCOTUS, especially the latest ATF order.

Ah SDS! I remember them from the 1969 building takeovers at Cornell when I was a pagan fool. They really know how to incite a mob. May God destroy their ability to do evil, and turn their hearts toward Him.

We have devolved back into the age of the Sophists. It’s rhetoric and emotional appeals all the way down and the only objective is power, not truth.
Our era needs a Socrates.

Fat_Freddys_Cat | October 17, 2023 at 12:39 pm

Looking at that SDS poster all I can say is “grow up”. There’s nothing wrong with having a different political opinion but can they at least act like grownups? Pro tip, using the “F” word is not edgy or radical. In this context it merely demonstrates an inability to engage in adult conversation.

So much of our Constitution and Bill of Rights was shaped by the way justice was administered by The Crown during the colonial era. Right to Counsel, Trial by Jury, Right to Confront Accuser, Right to Due Process….Freedom of Speech. The Crown would throw ‘insurrections’ and other enemies of the King into prison and leave them there, often preventing them from speaking publicly about the charges against them but frequently prohibiting others from speaking publicly about the criminal trial…or lack thereof.

And yet, here we are with a Jamaican immigrant who’s doing the exact same thing.

F### ACB is such an inspiring motto. Especially after Hamas’ dkemonstration last week of how this is done. Bunch of leftist misogynists. Crude, hateful, and sexual. Yeah, their Moms must be proud
