Hat tip Campus Reform

Hide the snowflakes. Disguise Frosty the Snowman in camouflage. Milo Yiannopoulos is coming to the University of Wisconsin at Madison.and the badgers are hiding in the woods. Fortunately, a group of faculty  (aided by students, "workers" and "members of the community") called the Coalition Against the Ultra Right is manning the barricades to get Milo's appearance cancelled.

Once gain, lost in the shuffle is the idea of free speech- at least as far as the Coalition Against the Ultra Right is concerned. People like this are always complaining that they, as academics, are under fire and their right to bloviate in classrooms about their personal political beliefs is threatened, but let a conservative come within 100 feet of the hallowed halls of ivy protests sprout like weeds.

Meanwhile, Milo must be laughing all the way to the bank. He has marketed himself masterfully- aided by clowns like the Coalition Against the Ultra Right.

Ultra Right? Isn't that a brand of toothpaste?
