The conference happened to be scheduled on a day called Admit Day, when prospective medical students would be visiting the campus. The threat of a ruined Admit Day intimidated the administration, and they told the Anscombe Society that they could not use a campus building for their event and would have to move it off campus.
The depressing part of this story is that there’s nothing unusual about this. It’s the typical intolerance of anything leftist college students don’t like. Colleges today are not places for open exchange of ideas. They’re places where liberals erupt in hysterics over the existence of a different point of view. Notice that we never see conservative student groups behaving this way—when was the last time you heard about College Republicans protesting a speaker, or complaining that there weren’t enough conservatives at a conference? I’d like to congratulate the Stanford Anscombe Society for its courage in making a conservative viewpoint heard despite such a hostile atmosphere.
