    Free speech is free speech....if this anti-immigrant group wants to get up there and speak on a very controversial subject, then the protestors have every right to get the other side of the argument heard.

    I was bored one night and turn Hannity and Colmes on. The two ladies that started the protest were one. Sad thing is, they made Hannity seem like the sane one.

    I don't care if your going to protest a speech, but the video shows several protestors rushing the podium and one gets in the speakers face. That's not a "peaceful protest" as the ladies put it.

    I agree that protesting a speech is ok, but stopping and it is not. Free speech means everyone is entitled to their opinions even if we don't like the opinions. Shutting down speech we don't like does not make us a democracy.

    IMHO the best way to protest a speech is to have one yourself.

    Shutting someone up is not productive.

    Yeah I saw that episode too. In no way is Hannity going to let these punk college chicks dictate what is going to be discussed on his show. I was laughing the entire time.

    Alan needs to speak up more.
