Beware silencing free speech

Shame on the football players at Tulane University for tossing the sandbag wall supporting Donald Trump into the street.

The players, and any other participants in this behavior, have yielded to their non-functioning barbaric brains to obliterate a non-violent population whose minds and mouths they would silence as the Nazis did to the Jews in the 1930s and 40s.

Had these non-evolved brainless hulks built a wall with opposing views on the opposite side of the street, I would applaud them. Their violent anti-free speech behavior is a precursor to the demise of democracy and of America. Violence leads to fear and silence and death. Opinion promotes discussion and reflection and growth.

Which behavior survives? The one we feed.
