Once again, student protesters, this time at the University of Michigan, tried to prevent a speaker from bringing his right-of-center perspective to the university’s campus. The event, hosted by the University of Michigan’s College Republicans and the American Enterprise Institute Executive Council, had a rocky start as Charles Murray, a libertarian political scientist, was interrupted by the hecklers for 40 minutes before they decided to end their harassment and leave.

A few hours before the event, flyers were handed out to students in an attempt to keep the event peaceful and ensure everyone in attendance would be safe. The flyers stated that weapons, masks to conceal one’s identity, ice picks, drugs, laser pointers, amongst other items were prohibited inside the auditorium. At the bottom, the flyers stated that all attendees and their belongings were subject to searches.

The protesters called Murray a racist, a sexist, a member of the KKK, shouted over him as he spoke, turned off the lights, and even projected the words “white supremacist” on a screen behind him. Protesters continued to shout over Murray even as he attempted to respond to some legitimate questions they asked.

In the video below, one protester is heard yelling, “… Republicans want to kill us! You, sir, are killing us!”
