Cause for concern …

… Campus Free-Speech Crisis | City Journal. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
Under intense pressure from student activists to limit “hate speech,” college administrators can either acquiesce to demands or face protests. Many choose to acquiesce. As Mac Donald wrote last year: “Unless the campus zest for censorship is combatted now, what we have always regarded as a precious inheritance could be eroded beyond recognition, and a soft totalitarianism could become the new American norm.”

If your response to views that differ from your own is to silence them, it seems reasonable to conclude that you're not too secure in your own views.
