Good point, I should have been more careful characterizing to broadly.

Of course, a counter-protest is just a type of speech that should be protected.

It's tough to say what percent of the counter protestors thought that Milo/Coulter/Murray/etc shouldn't have been allowed on campus, and what percent just wanted to voice their displeasure and disagreement. That said, it does seem like a large number of those in the crowd actually didn't want the speakers to voice their opinions at all.
