Don’t feed me­dia flames with Spencer protest

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION -

Robert Spencer and his en­ablers would like noth­ing more than a loud, noisy, and hope­fully vi­o­lent protest when he speaks at Stan­ford, gen­er­at­ing lots of press and im­ages of the left at­tempt­ing to sti­fle his right to speak. I would sug­gest that in­stead of giv­ing himwhat he wants, stu­dents stay away from the speech and show their feel­ings of sup­port for the Mus­lim com­mu­nity by don­ning head scarves and hi­jabs for the day and go­ing about their lives as they nor­mally would. The nar­ra­tive would change to one of sup­port for an op­pressed com­mu­nity in­stead of feed­ing the me­dia flames of a racist provo­ca­teur. — Doug Ed­wards, Los Al­tos
