You’re right that noone should debate Murray or other racists. Putting that aside, shouting down a speaker is not “free speech.” It’s referred to as the “heckler’s veto.” In a free society, large groups should not be able to dictate what other groups are allowed to hear. There is no obligation for you to listen, to debate, to respect, or to acknowledge in any way odious speakers and viewpoints, but shouting down, or otherwise violently disrupting speech you don’t like is not ok.
