Car With “Co-Exist” Bumper Sticker Runs Over Pro-Life Display

You’ve seen those dark blue and white bumper stickers on the road with religious symbols from all sorts of religions urging people to “coexist.” The idea behind them is to promote some sort of respect for tolerance and diversity and they generally appear to be aimed at Christians.
As Bristol Palin notes in a blog post, that level of open-mindedness apparently doesn’t apply to abortion backers.
A student’s pro-life display caused one of his fellow students to go sort of nuts. According to FIRE President Greg Lukianoff:
FIRE just released a video featuring the story of student Robert Smith at Dartmouth College. In 2012, one of his fellow students hated his campus pro-life display so much that he actually ran over it with his car right in front of the student organizers.
(This display was American flags, not crosses.) Not only was this move crazy and dangerous, it came with an ironic twist: the car had a “Coexist” bumper sticker on the back.
What part of “co-exist” did this guy not understand??
Destroying pro-life cross displays is something of a theme for abortion proponents.
Abortion activists over the years have vandalized and destroyed dozens of pro-life displays meant to memorialize unborn children who are victimized by abortions. One wonders what is so upsetting about remembering the babies abortion has killed that drives them to little trample on the displays and violate the free speech rights and property rights of pro-lifers.

In 2011, a pro-life display of crosses meant to memorialize unborn children killed by abortions was the latest to suffer from pro-abortion vandalism following an incident at a Pennsylvania college.
Student vandals at Missouri State University wrecked a pro-life cross memorial on the school’s Blair-Shannon Lawn in 2008. And in 2010, abortion advocates at La Crosse University in Wisconsin vandalized a pro-life student the pro-life campus group erected.
