Minuteman Protest - Calm & Peaceful? You Decide

I found the video of the Columbia protest. To me, this was a planned disruption, intended to prevent the Minutemen from expressing their views. So, how does this NOT count as a violation of the Minutemen's 1st Amendment rights? Why did the university (a public one) not remove the protesters immediately? Could it be that they wanted the talk interrupted?

Judge for yourself - were they quietly expressing their view? Were they destroying property and deliberately intimidating the anti-immigration attendees?

Scott, the young man at the end of the video, provides a refreshing example of calm and reason.
