As Twitchy reported, the Federalist Society invited conservative judge Kyle Duncan to speak at Stanford Law School. Students shouted down Duncan, who’s famous for refusing to use a transgender sex offender’s preferred pronouns in court. Here’s how the Q&A went with the law students:
Other questions were less academic. “I fuck men, I can find the prostate,” one student asked, according to Rosenberger. “Why can’t you find the clit?”
Duncan was escorted out of a back door by federal marshals, who told him, he said, that they were there to “protect” him.

Students then organized a protest against the school’s dean because she had apologized to Duncan for their behavior.
Here’s a highlight:

Jay Willis of the San Francisco Chronicle says it doesn’t matter to Duncan what happened … he got the fame and attention he wanted, as he’s probably angling for a seat on the Supreme Court.
No matter who you think behaved worse here, the answer doesn’t matter for Duncan, because he got what he wanted: fame. Ever since Brett Kavanaugh’s shameless partisan histrionics got him confirmed to the Supreme Court in 2018, maintenance of a dignified temperament has hardly been a prerequisite for Republican judicial candidates. As Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern noted, it’s hard not to view Duncan’s performance as a not-so-subtle audition for the next Supreme Court vacancy that arises under a Republican president. If he were honest, he wouldn’t be excoriating protesters for “silencing” him at some forgettable law school lunch event. He’d be thanking them for making him an overnight celebrity in the circles that matter most.
It’s pretty clear who behaved worse here.
What a horrible take. You’re in timeout. Think about what you’ve done.

There’s news and then there’s this. This is propaganda, not news.

Fragile students are becoming averse to free speech. This is not only making our population dumber but forcing smart members of our population to hold certain political views if they wish to be heard.
If there’s anything needing calling out it’s the lack of viewpoint diversity

This is the same way I feel when I walk into a room hoping to have a civil conversation and instead get prevented from speaking by people yelling obscenities and insults at me. My first thought: “This is exactly what I want.”
I mean, isn’t this the kind of treatment we all want?

Being publicly harangued by immature hecklers who hopefully don’t exemplify the general caliber and character of Stanford Law students seems like a steep price for a headline. Just saying

Let’s say your supposition is true (questionable, but OK): Who, in fact, handed Judge Duncan “what he wanted” on a silver platter with a single, beautifully wrapped Godiva truffle?

Such a creepy outlet. It’s disturbing how leftists assert the inner motives of outsiders, non-leftists. Such a terrible ideology. And of course they start the title with the word Trump, call him a Trump judge.
The left is a real cult, which is obvious given the Stanford behavior

Completely ridiculous attempt to divert blame from woke, radical, leftist crybullies for their atrocious behavior.

Good lord journalism really is dead. Its just a bunch of political activist masquerading as journalist now.

“No matter who you think behaved worse here”
There was no option but to embrace the most insane and deranged premise.

Why can’t @jaywillis just aknowledge that the students acted like spoiled, misbehaving, self-entitled brats, unfit for university education? Just because he doesn’t like Duncan?
— Terence Hill (@hillbillynl) March 15, 2023
Exactly; he doesn’t like Duncan and he doesn’t like any judge confirmed by President Trump. Is this the kind of publicity that Stanford wanted?
