Subject: Student Newspaper Threatens Students Who Do Not Conform to Progressive Values

The editors of The Wellesley News, the student newspaper of Wellesley College threatened their peers who refuse to conform to the campus’ progressive orthodoxy, in a column that was published this week.

Students at the all-female Wellesley College, the alma mater of both Hillary Clinton and Madeline Albright, are threatening their peers who refuse to tow the progressive line in a recently published column in the student newspaper.

As a part of a wider conversation on hate speech on campus, the student editors of The Wellesley News penned a column ironically titled “Free Speech is Not Violated At Wellesley,” that claims that students who “refuse to adapt their beliefs” will be treated with hostility by their peers.

This being said, if people are given the resources to learn and either continue to speak hate speech or refuse to adapt their beliefs, then hostility may be warranted. If people continue to support racist politicians or pay for speakers that prop up speech that will lead to the harm of others, then it is critical to take the appropriate measures to hold them accountable for their actions.

A contradictory policy, to be sure.

Wellesley is a bastion of sexist entitlement and anything but anti-sexism.
