Which party will it be? “The Republican party is either going to be a political outfit that supports free trade or it isn’t. The Republican party is either going to be a political outfit that supports free speech or it isn’t. Republicans will throw in their lot with Lincoln, Eisenhower, and Reagan, or they will throw in with Putin, Le Pen, and Götz Kubitschek. The Republican party is either going to remember “When Character Was King” or it is going to forget all that happy talk about “family values” and make its peace with habitual dishonesty, adultery, and betrayal — so long as those things go along with winning elections. Which they very well may, but the Republicans will have to do it without my vote.”

Of course it was. They only want their voice heard. "Andrew Litt, a recent graduate of UCLA School of Law who was in attendance, told Campus Reform that “this heckler’s veto behavior is reprehensible by any standard. “It is literally the antithesis of productive discussion about freedom of speech in the United States,” Litt added. “Aside from disrupting a lawful assembly and interfering with participants’ educational opportunities, these disruptors’ behavior is immature and is by no means a form of persuasive protest.” Similarly, the school’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter strongly condemned the protests, calling them “ironic in the extreme” due to the intended theme of the event. “It turned disturbingly uncivil when protesters shouted over speakers, blocked aisles, and disrupted the event to the point where the remnants of the event were moved to another room,” UCLA YAF Chair Thea Dunlevie told Campus Reform, saying the student protesters “demonstrated that they disdain discussion, they discourage conversation, and they reject dialogue.” “Fascists tend to shut down free speech, just like Refuse Fascism who only allowed their speech to be heard,” she added. “Refuse Fascism’s protests derailed productive conversation about actual history for political gain regarding hyperbolic claims about today’s politics. Let’s have a conversation, not a shouting match.”"

The Punisher is not a hero or an anti-hero. He kills people he thinks are bad. There is a word for that: villain. The fact that he kills bad people and that we follow him as a protagonist and he has a code, makes him more sympathetic, but never forget he is not a good person. He is like Michael Corleone in The Godfather; a protagonist, not a hero.
