I agree. It's just how they (we) go about saying it. Just look at San Jose protesters yesterday. Do you think that is justifiable discourse?
As I said before, it is largely a social issue. Whether consciously or subconsciously, people have adopted the Machiavellian / Alinsky tactic of depersonalizing "the enemy". They are not "people", but rather they are "liberals". It is even done in other contexts where power is to be wielded. Example: They aren't "employees", they are "human resources". When we depersonalize we can then exploit or destroy. And it has become pervasive. Listen to the talking heads of either political persuasion and you'll hear it. It is hard to do that if you have a desire to "love thy neighbor". Your neighbor is a person, at least up until you label him to depersonalize him. In Germany they were neighbors until the Star of David or the "Juden" badge was put on their clothing. Then they were depersonalized. It really is that dangerous.
In the California protests, once a person was labeled a "Trumpist" then it was okay to physically abuse them. After all,"Trumpists" are really "people" in the truest sense, right?
In short, on a UC campus, speech that is not overtly liberal or "P.C." it is more likely to be branded as inappropriate. And, yes, I have seen this first hand, and it is truly mind-boggling.
