He continued, “The protesters are being blamed rather than the bigoted speaker; the university administration finds the perfect excuse to stand publicly with the racists or the xenophobic; the national and international press is having a field day saying that it is the bigots who are being oppressed, instead of the people these bigots hate.” The fact that they are victims of oppression.
