Radical liberal protesters demonstrated against a speech by conservative Jewish-American writer Ben Shapiro at Ohio State University Tuesday, the Huffington Post reported.

Carrying red flags and covering their faces with ski-masks, protesters shouted obscenities at Shapiro and chanted "Regan's dead" and "John McCain's dead."

Shapiro tweeted a video of the protesters with the ironic comment, "But I'm the threat to civility guys."

Journalist Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain, tweeted a video of the event and called the protesters "snowflakes," meaning people who are overly sensitive and cannot tolerate people who hold different views.
Shapiro is now on a campus lecture tour sponsored by the Young America Foundation, touching on themes such as "facts don't care about your feelings" and "the myth of white privilege."
