I am both unsurprised and saddened to see that so many retreat to the same tired tropes of arguing that speech that they don't like is somehow different ... and always because of a speculative fear. Speech the person likes is magically immune to these fears, and speech the person doesn't like is subject to it. But for term paper writer that's not why we protect speech; we protect speech to protect the speech we don't like. This doesn't mean that speech shouldn't be countered, or that there aren't consequences (such as students boycotting the class, or people speaking out against the Professor, or even the University looking into whether or not he acted in an inappropriate manner); but in the end, if you can't protect speech you don't like, why bother.
