There are several developments in the wake of Breitbart tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ talk Tuesday evening at DePaul University, which was disrupted when Black Lives Matter protesters stormed the stage and threatened violence while security stood at the back of the room and did nothing.

Unfortunately, those developments don’t include any sort of punishment for Edward Ward, who led the protest and delivered a “historic” speech.


No, the real concern is not for the safety or well being of Yiannopoulos, but rather for the safety of the community, which suffered “deep harm” by the very presence of Yiannopoulos on campus.

On Thursday, DePaul’s Women’s Studies department — yes, the faculty — will create a healing space so that students and professors alike can “process” the damage done.

Yes, they’re going to file a formal discrimination complaint — presumably not on behalf of the gay man who was threatened by Black Lives Matter agitators, on video no less. He’s gay, but still white and male and practically a rapist because of it.

While DePaul’s president awaited that formal discrimination complaint, he chose to stick to his policy of ignoring entertainers and self-serving provocateurs of Yiannopoulos’ ilk.

That’s right: again, the speaker himself was the one who caused harm to the campus community: “This is unworthy of university discourse, but not unfamiliar across American higher education. There will always be speakers who exploit the differences within our human community to their own benefit, blissfully unconcerned with the damage they leave behind.”

Speaking of damages, Yiannopoulos would like a refund of the money he put up to reinforce security at the event, who did nothing. Worse yet, some suspect police took a cue from former Baltimore police commissioner Anthony Batts and gave the protesters “space” to express themselves.

Finally, about that refund.
