Students At Wesleyan Demand Abolition Of Free Press

Severe Leftist censorship attempt in response to a balanced article

The student newspaper of Connecticut’s Wesleyan University is being targeted with a boycott by left-wing activists who say the paper doesn’t do enough to accommodate “minority voices.”

The trouble for The Wesleyan Argus began a week ago when the paper published an op-ed by student Bryan Stascavage, who criticized the Black Lives Matter movement for having members who allegedly support anti-police violence. Students expressed so much outrage at the piece that just days later the paper published a staff editorial apologizing for it.

“The opinions expressed in the op-ed do not reflect those of The Argus, and we want to affirm that as community members, we stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement,” the editorial said. The paper promised to publish a “Black Out” issue written entirely be racial minorities in order to atone for its sins, and also said it would institute a tougher fact-checking process to stop “questionable information” from being published.

But critics aren’t satisfied. On Sunday, during an open forum of the Wesleyan Student Assembly, a petition signed by 147 students and faculty demanded a boycott of the Argus and for the paper to lose its funding from the school.

Liberals are completely committed to the nonsense that they preach.
They ignore the actual fact of many young black males being murdered by other black males.

Free press is only allowed if the Liberals agree with the message.
