At many colleges today, regulations have been imposed that forbid the use in speech or print of language that “offends” or “insults” the members of any group, especially women and racial, ethnic, and religious minorities. Although these regulations are defended in the name of “democracy,” they restrict freedom of speech and the press in a way that opposes the true spirit of democracy.

The argument above attempts to prove its case primarily by
(A) impugning the credentials of an opponent
(B) providing examples that support a theoretical principle
(C) taking advantage of inconsistencies in the definition of “democracy”
(D) revealing a contradiction in an opposing point of view
(E) appealing to the patriotic feelings of its audience

It could be either C or D. Although it's clear that the author doesn't understand the true meaning of democracy, there is not much proof that he/she is taking advantage of the inconsistencies in the definition of democracy. So, I would be leaning towards D.

The imposed use of offending language indeed not support democracy, so it's D
