School president "ashamed for DePaul" over anti-conservative riot

DePaul Student Center, where
Nero spoke
The Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, president of DePaul University in Chicago, in a letter denounced the antics of leftist protesters at Tuesday's anti-conservative riot that took place when author and Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, also known as Nero, was forced to cut short his speaking engagement at the nominally-Catholic college.

When did "Father Holt" find his backbone? The late Thomas Klocek could have used such verve when he battled the politically-correct liberal mafia at DePaul a decade ago.

Holtschneider is in France but he saw the video where a leftist whackjob grabbed a microphone from the moderator of the event.

From his letter:
Yesterday's speaker was invited to speak at DePaul, and those who interrupted the speech were wrong to do so. Universities welcome speakers, give their ideas a respectful hearing, and then respond with additional speech countering the ideas. I was ashamed for DePaul University when I saw a student rip the microphone from the hands of the conference moderator and wave it in the face of our speaker.
