Here’s an interesting excerpt from the article:
SGA President Emily Solomon said that the white nationalist emails sent to students and the posters found on campus raise questions about whether that sort of speech should be allowed in the name of freedom of expression or if it should be silenced outright.
“This is a conversation that is only just starting,” Solomon said. She also said personal security is an essential element of freedom of speech, and that hate speech jeopardizes that.
“To have productive conversation, people need to feel safe,” she said. “If I don’t feel safe … I’m less likely to profess my opinion, and that means philosophically, ideologically, my freedom of speech has been restricted.”
So one of Emerson’s best students thinks she will no longer be free to express her own hot-house-cultivated anti-White views if someone from outside expresses their opposition to such views?
And of course any view today that isn’t anti-White is labeled “hate speech.” Which she honks out like all the other trained seals that our colleges produce today.
