Re: “O'Keefe Exercises His Right to Free Speech Without Disruption in Middlebury

That was a seriously terrible decision, Sam.

There is a clear line of demarcation between Charles Murray and James O'Keefe. It's the difference between ideas about which people can legitimately disagree or examine, and flagrant violations of basic integrity that deny facts and omit important occurrences. James O'Keefe has been repeatedly and relentlessly guilty of the latter - with ACORN, Abbie Boudreau, Mary Landrieu, the WaPo and countless others. In failing to differentiate between the two, you're making a fatal mistake. No matter how strong your commitment to free speech, which is mirrored by a majority of Americans, there is not one single tenet of that principle that you serve by providing a platform to a proven and unapologetic liar like James O'Keefe. In fact, free speech as a concept heavily relies on the notion that we should make this distinction, and refuse to reward people who lie, cheat and edit their videos with platforms for them to continue that behavior.

Kudos to the students who opted not to waste their eyeballs or time on this human garbage fire. That was the right response.
