Law school students who heckled judge freak out over their names being released

Stanford University Law School students who made national headlines for their harassment of a federal judge who was a guest of the school’s Federalist Society are howling in outrage over their names being made public, yet another example of how radical leftist bullies cry like babies when their own tactics are turned against them.

The prestigious institute of higher learning had to apologize to U.S. Circuit Judge Kyle Duncan after the appointee of former President Donald J. Trump was heckled by a group of tantrum-throwing leftists who were led by a boorish “woke” Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion dean, an ugly outburst of disrespect that went viral, bringing great shame and embarrassment upon the Northern California private research university.

While the campus revolutionaries craved the attention they would receive from their disgusting treatment of a respected member of the federal court system, they weren’t pleased after their names were published by the Washington Free Beacon, the conservative media outlet that has been covering their futile antics, despite their own doxing of Stanford’s Federalist Society students whose names were shared on the internet and on posters.

“The school’s chapter of the National Lawyers Guild—the organizing force behind the Maoist horde of would-be lawyers—papered the hallways prior to Judge Duncan’s arrival with the names and photographs of the Federalist Society’s board members,” the Free Beacon reported along with an example of one of the posters.

“NEW: The same students who plastered the names and faces of the Stanford Federalist Society all over the school are now demanding anonymity from the Free Beacon. They say we’ve violated their right to privacy by identifying them. You can’t make it up,” tweeted WFB reporter Aaron Sibarium.

“On Sunday, I identified board members of the Stanford National Lawyers Guild–one of the groups responsible for the posters–who in a public statement described the protest as ‘Stanford Law School at its best.’ A few hours later, the board demanded I redact their names,” Sibarium said.

Sibarium noted that Lily Bou, a board member of the Stanford National Lawyers Guild demanded that the outlet remove her name as well as other alleged troublemakers from their reporting on the incident.

“‘Listing our names serves no purpose other than to invite abuse and harassment,'” she wrote in an email, he said in another tweet. “‘I wonder what purpose the posters of the fedsoc board served.'”

“You do not have our permission to reference or quote any portion of this email in a future piece,'” she added.

“Needless to say, that’s not how the First Amendment works,” the reporter pointed out.

“We’ve gotten similar complaints about publishing images—pulled from social media—of Stanford Law School dean Jenny Martinez’s classroom, which protesters covered end to end in flyers after she issued an apology to Judge Duncan,” Sibarium continued. “We received a note from Mary Cate Hickman demanding that we ‘anonymize the face of the student in the red hoodie’ because ‘California is a two-party consent state, and you have no right to publish this student’s identity/likeness/face without consent.'”

Sibarium then schooled the whiners on California law.

“As we explain in our editorial: ‘California is a two-party consent state for the recording of oral communications, not photographs, and even that only pertains to situations in which there is a presumption of privacy,'” he wrote. “There is no presumption of privacy in a law school classroom where student activists are snapping photographs and posting them to Instagram, especially in the wake of a nationally televised protest at your law school.”

“From our editorial: ‘What’s eminently clear from the drama unfolding in Palo Alto is that while Stanford law students may be the vanguard of an anti-constitutional revolution, they don’t know much about the law,'” the reporter pointed out. “Where Stanford has failed to educate them in the limits of privacy and the rights of a free press, we will endeavor to fill the void with our continuing coverage of this ugly affair.”

In a letter dated last Saturday and signed by Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Stanford Law dean Jennifer Martinez, a formal apology was offered up to Judge Duncan for the boorish treatment that he was subjected to as a guest of the university.

According to the letter: “We write to apologize for the disruption of your recent speech at Stanford Law School. As has already been communicated to our community, what happened was inconsistent with our policies on free speech, and we are very sorry about the experience you had while visiting our campus.”

“We are very clear with our students that, given our commitment to free expression, if there are speakers they disagree with, they are welcome to exercise their right to protest but not to disrupt the proceedings,” the letter reads. “Our disruption policy states that students are not allowed to ‘prevent the effective carrying out’ of a ‘public event’ whether by heckling or other forms of interruption.”

“In addition, staff members who should have enforced university policies failed to do so, and instead intervened in inappropriate ways that are not aligned with the university’s commitment to free speech,” wrote Tessier-Lavigne and Martinez.

Judge Duncan called the disgusting display “dogsh*t” in frank remarks that summed it up perfectly in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon.

“Don’t feel sorry for me,” Duncan said. “I’m a life-tenured federal judge. What outrages me is that these kids are being treated like dogsh*t by fellow students and administrators.”

The university has yet to take action against Tirien Steinbach, the DEI dean who was the chief instigator of the unseemly protest.
