An editorial at Wellesley College tells students that violence is acceptable when shutting down unpopular campus speech, according to a report in The Daily Caller.
Published in the student newspaper Wellesley News, the column justifies hostility and violence against anyone who “either continue(s) to speak hate speech or refuse to adapt their beliefs” to accepted progressive norms, adding that “hostility may be warranted.”
The editorial then uses the Constitution to justify mob rule. “Shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and rights of others is not a violation of free speech; it is hate speech,” the grammatically-challenged author states. “The founding fathers put free speech in the Constitution as a way to protect the disenfranchised and to protect individual citizens from the power of the government.”
The piece concludes that violence may be necessary to use against anyone who “supports racist politicians,” obviously a thinly-veiled warning to Republicans and fans of President Trump.
