On the plus side, Ben Shapiro wasn’t banned from speaking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison like he was at DePaul University, where multiple security guards were posted to ensure he didn’t step on campus and pose a danger to the fragile creatures preserved inside.

Security was a little lighter at UW-Michigan, despite advance notice that several groups would be protesting his defense of free speech.

The show did go on, but people filing in to the auditorium were greeted by this NSFW chant. Maybe it’s reflexive naiveté on our part, but would it hurt to tone down the obscenities, at least around the sleepy looking kids who don’t seem to have any idea why they’re there?

Slim chance that child was able to nap inside. By the looks of this next photo, mom brought the kids along to help take over the stage from the invited speaker. Nice.
