The intolerant left is at it again. I regret to inform you that, in yet another case of political correctness gone mad, the woke brigade has shut down free speech and censored a courageous conservative intellectual. Over the weekend, Donald Trump Jr was heckled off stage while promoting his new book – Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us – at the University of California.

Oh, hang on a minute. It looks like it wasn't the hateful left that silenced the president's eldest son; it was his own supporters. You see, shortly after Sunday's event kicked off, Trump Jr informed the audience that there wouldn't be a Q&A because leftwingers would inevitably twist his words. The lack of dialogue enraged a far-right faction of the crowd who believe the Trump administration isn't anti-immigrant enough and were eager to challenge Jr on this.

"We wanted to ask questions about immigration and about Christianity," two of the protesters, who identify as American Firsters, told the Guardian, "but [Trump Jr] didn't want to face those questions."
