The Intolerance of the Left

Justice Antonin Scalia speaking with Peter Robinson of Uncommon Knowledge:

“My youngest child went to Amherst. I went to graduation there, and while I was there I gave a lecture. The lecture was boycotted by all of the faculty members at Amherst. It’s no skin off my nose…but it shows a closed-mindedness that should certainly not exist in the academy.”

This is truly appalling to me. This is a Supreme Court Judge. I would be just as appalled if it were a liberal Judge boycotted by the faculty. They should serve as examples of free thought and ideas. This behavior is antithetical to that end.

The left never fails to disappoint with their intolerance of people who don't agree with them.

Shame on Amherst indeed.
