Leftist students routinely intimidate and even physically menace those who dissent from their views, especially pro-Israel students. Conservative speakers are rarely invited to campuses, and when they are, face legions of hostile and even violent protesters. Universities are increasingly hostile to conservative views, and are mostly indoctrination centers for the hard left. This is academia today, as I detail in my new book The Complete Infidel's Guide to Free Speech (and Its Enemies).
On September 29, 2016, retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel and former Congressman Allen West was scheduled to speak at Saint Louis University (SLU) on what he termed "the threat of radical Islam." A group of leftist and Muslim student protesters, led by the SLU Rainbow Alliance and the Muslim Students' Association, packed the hall and then walked out, leaving West to speak to a nearly empty room.
