UC San Diego Students Actually Protested Dalai Lama Over His Lack of Tolerance

Even ‘world peace’ is problematic.

Students at the University of California San Diego staged a protest last week in the hopes that school administrators would cancel a planned appearance by that hard-line conservative commentator whose rhetoric is known to incite violence wherever he goes: the Dalai Lama.

For once, the complainers weren’t campus liberals, but Chinese students who claimed the Dalai Lama’s message of world peace was actually a cover for a campaign of violence, property damage, and death, which runs contrary to UCSD’s commitment to tolerance and equality….

Of course, the irony of using a claim of tolerance to shut down a speaker is lost on the students working so diligently to exile the Dalai Lama not just from his home territory but also from a San Diego university.”
