A UCLA survey this week showed that 44% of college students around the country mistakenly believe the First Amendment does not protect so-called "hate speech." A full one out of five students believe violence is an acceptable means of silencing speakers they find offensive. So it's disheartening but unsurprising that support for the violent anarchists of Antifa is running high among those students, according to Campus Reform.
Campus Reform recently took to the campus of American University in Washington, D.C. to ask students their opinion of Antifa, recently labeled a domestic terror organization by the Department of Homeland Security.
“I like them...beating up fascists is good,” said one. Another claimed they were simply trying to “educate” their political adversaries, and that violence was simply “a very powerful tool.”
