I am afraid you are absolutely correct. His withdrawal will only serve to embolden those who will allow no one with differing views to have a say. It is interesting that the left's intolerance for conservatives is attacked with much the same vengeance as the old time racists attacked blacks in a day gone by. This is true no matter whether we are talking gay marriage, endangered species, or any other left agenda. The noise and the absolute hatred for those with an opposing view is so similar to the noise and absolute hatred for rights for blacks in former time.

It is hard to imagine a more inspiring occasion. The graduation ceremony for Johns Hopkins University Medical School was set to welcome the man who has brought it so much attention lately-- Dr. Ben Carson, the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery whose observations on culture and politics have earned him millions of new fans in recent months.

But those views ruffled the sensibilities of ideological hooligans at Hopkins, who sought to chase him from that occasion.

Sadly, they have succeeded.

Displaying characteristic gallantry and class, Dr. Carson has withdrawn, rather than see the event reduced to a circus.
