Idiot Protesters

I meant to catch this yesterday, but it slipped my mind. Apparently, when torture-loving' John Yoo spoke at the University of Minnesota Wednesday, a bunch of protesters managed to disrupt the event with their protests. I'm hardly a fan of Yoo, but the best way to take on idiotic ideas is to debate them and show how stupid they are, not yell the loudest. When you do that, you give the supporters of these idiotic ideas power, as they think that they are so right people are trying to beat them down.

Why didn't they just flood the event and ask pointed, intelligent questions that would show how wrong Yoo is? Beats me. It does anti-torture supporters no favours, though, when protesters resort to these tactics when faced with people like Yoo.
