Weekly Standard's Kristol Hit With Pie

An Indiana college student expressed his dislike for a speech by Weekly Standard editor William Kristol by hitting him in the face with an ice-cream pie. Apparently, this is what qualifies as dissent on American college campuses nowadays. Conservatives have such a tight lock on academic discourse that poor, silenced libs have no alternative but to resort to bodily assault.

The Associated Press reports that Kristol wiped himself off and continued his speech.

I think the last line of the AP's report says it all:

"Earlham is a liberal arts college of about 1,200 students that is well-known for its peace studies program."
