USC Students Protest David Horowitz's Speech By Silencing Themselves

If only all protests were this blissfully quiet.

Could there be any better representation of the college generation's anti-free speech obsession with suppressive speech codes and forbidden microaggressions than the image of students with their mouths taped shut?

Twitchy reports that Students at the University of Southern California protested a speech by David Horowitz last Wednesday, not by shouting him down or otherwise disrupting the event, but by duct-taping their own mouths shut and linking together in a pointless human chain at the side of the room in what has been described as the “lamest protest ever.”

Young America’s Foundation program officer Amy Lutz captured the lameness in photos and commentary which she tweeted out to her more than 11,000 followers:
