Protests without a purpose

DANIEL PAYNE - ASSISTANT EDITOR MARCH 14, 2018

Student mobs function as performance art and nothing else

The noted scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, a sharp and welcome critic of modern feminism and broken campus  culture, was recently treated to a double helping of student mob mentality at Lewis & Clark Law School when, showing up as an invited guest of the campus’s Federalist Society, she was besieged by a crowd of protesters who attempted to shut down her speech. Students chanted and sang—those desperate mainstays of every wannabe-1960s student protest—and waved various signs. Doubtlessly there was some sort of hashtag associated with the whole thing. Ho-hum.
