The hypocrisy of leftists....

David Horowitz spoke yesterday at the University of Hawaii on his proposed Academic Bill of Rights. But, how's this for hypocrisy?
Many of the same campus leftists who had so urgently proclaimed the importance of defending Churchill's right to call some of the 3,000 murdered on 9-11 "Little Eichmanns" came to the Horowitz‚ event armed with signs reading "No free speech for fascists". Several attempted to shout down Horowitz‚ presentation, but were themselves shouted down by an audience determined to hear what Horowitz had to say without interruption. The presence of several campus security officers was an additional deterrent.
Shouldn't freedom of speech be for everybody? And not just for leftists?
