Wellesley College Student Newspaper Endorses Violence Against Unpopular Speech

Authored by Derek Hunter via DailyCaller.com,

Wellesley College made news last month when professors declared “speakers with ‘objectionable’ views are not only offensive to students, but actually diminish their liberty.” Now, the student newspaper at the elite private college has taken it a step further – justifying violence against anyone who “either continue to speak hate speech or refuse to adapt their beliefs” to accepted progressive norms, saying “then hostility may be warranted.”

The shocking statement came in an editorial in the student newspaper, The Wellesley News, entitled “Free Speech Is Not Violated At Wellesley.”

“Wellesley students are generally correct in their attempts to differentiate what is viable discourse from what is just hate speech,” the paper declared.

 

“Shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and rights of others is not a violation of free speech; it is hate speech. 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 editorial board at the paper then ascribes a new meaning to the First Amendment.

“The spirit of free speech is to protect the suppressed, not to protect a free-for-all where anything is acceptable, no matter how hateful and damaging,” the demand.

The reason “hate speech” exists is that the United States is a racist country, according to the paper.

“We have all said problematic claims, the origins of which were ingrained in us by our discriminatory and biased society. Luckily, most of us have been taught by our peers and mentors at Wellesley in a productive way,” the paper continues.

As for speakers and student who do not conform to what the paper deems acceptable speech, the editorial says violence may be justified.

“(I)f 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,” the editorial states.

 

“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. It is important to note that our preference for education over beration regards students who may have not been given the chance to learn. Rather, we are not referring to those who have already had the incentive to learn and should have taken the opportunities to do so,” the paper concludes.

Wellesley has always had problems with free thought and decades ago was instilling ideology through translations in language studies and other PC dimensions. I suppose if HRC went there it was always programming girls from rich households to believe in whatever claptrap was thought ideologically sound

Dear citizen number 210,014,290, a group of handpicked students in coordination with their administrators & benefactors at Wellesley College has decided that your speech is in the minority here at Wellesley and therefore hateful! ;-)

This is what happens when the lunatic fringe is given a voice, a platform and the freedom of their beliefs... Instead of embracing the variety of views on a topic, they want to impose their will on the rest of us... Perhaps it's time for mainstream Americans to start beating a little free speech into these "progressive" snoids... It appears to be their agenda, so lets oblige them...

literally that editorial as quoted does not endorse violence but hostile beration, which the act of chiding or scolding vehemently.

it makes a difference.

The Leftist so called "progressives" aka totalitarians, have had the pleasure of being violent without the favor being returned in kind to them. That time is rapidly ending in my view and they will learn like all other learn.

For Swellsley types, that pretty much is violence,  although I suppose your 2017 Audi A8 daddy and your step mom gave you for doing so well at the body image hospital could get keyed, a bit, like 4 inches, but just the clearcoat.

Liberal hypocrisy continues unabated:

"...speakers that prop up speech that will lead to the harm of others..."

Is that not exactly what this author is espousing?
Advocating "Hostilities" against those THEY deem are using "hate speech"?!

“Shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and rights of others is not a violation of free speech; it is hate speech."

The author of that sentence does not realize what it actually says.


Shift For Brains's picture

Hilarity ensues as the student "newspaper" of a pricey liberal university seems unable to muster editors who are equipped to write unambiguous sentence structure. I don't think it is even grammatically correct, setting aside muddled.

This is a textbook example of what happens when educated imbeciles take over a university.

Now I think I'm beginning to understand what you guys are talking about when you say stuff about women--this kind of thinking is really warped!  I guess when you live in estrogen overload, your mind probably would get mushy enough to believe just about anything, including twisting language to mean whatever you want it to be.  What a waste of education.

Now I think I'm beginning to understand what you guys are talking about when you say stuff about women

 

No matriarchial society has ever survived.  Women are different than men, they don't have the testosterone, nor were they evolved to "protect the frontiers."  Evolution has predicated men and women to have different roles.

There are always exceptions to the rule, so there are some exceptional women - who can think like a man.  But, in general, when women are given too much freedom, they abuse it.  They start twerking in the streets, and then demand that government become their sugar daddy.  

In other words, by giving women freedom, a boomerang effect occurs - women then disenfranchise men of their freedom with armed government.  Our ((overlords)) always push for female "rights" and "minority" rights, so there is tyranny of a minority.  This is a surefire way to tear down civilization, which is why they employ it through their owned media.

Pussy hats forever.

Wellesley - what kind of 'violence' are they endorsing ? A tantrum like they use on rich Daddy when he doesn't give them what they want ? Spreading of catty gossip?

No, they're not 'elite' - they just have money.

This.  Wellesley is not an academic tier-1 northeastern school.  More like a place for young lesbians who look like old battleaxes to play semi-competitive sports.

There has been, after Richard Spencer was sucker punched in front of DC cops who did NOTHING, articles in MSM, APPROVING violence against ALT-RIGHT, and other aware Whites.

The fact is that the "Hate Crime" laws and the SILENCING of speech is not something these paleskin morons have come up with, but it is rather part of an orchestrated movement by a certain (((GROUP))).

And the ADL was the prime mover of the THOUGHT CRIME Federal legislation named after Shepard, they even had a dying Ted Kennedy get out of bed to vote for it.

Here Jewish power was used to turn this exemplar of Jewish moral particularlism into an instrument of Jewish ethnic interests in advocating nation-destroying levels of immigration and multiculturalism. The creation of this icon of moral universalism is aimed at motivating the British to accept levels of immigration that within the century will eradicate the traditional people and culture of Britain. To do otherwise would be to approve the holocaust.

As is typical of the iconic stories put forward by our hostile elites, facts don’t matter.

Another recent example: the Matthew Shepard case, where we now find out that Shepard was a meth addict who was murdered as part of a drug heist; one of his murderers had a homosexual and drug-dealing relationship with Shepard. But that has made no difference to the narrative put out by the Matthew Shepard Foundation or the mainstream media, and the author of book with these revelations now finds himself besieged by hostility despite being gay, Latino, and politically liberal.

And just look at Berkeley, when in the 1960s (((Herbert Aptheker))) and his daughter (((Bettina))) started the "Free Speech Movement" it was designed to destroy America, now that ((THEY))) have almost total control, well Bettina in an interview with Der Spiegel earlier this year said that "NO FREE SPEECH FOR NAZIS" is what she supports, and she is a Professor at University of California at Santa Cruz, WOMAN'S STUDIES, of course.

If you have POLICE ordered by their Chief to STAND DOWN and allow SOROS thugs to beat and use weapons and wear masks as they deny Whites their First Amendment rights, and to ARREST Whites who try to defend themselves and others from these attacks, and the same police just STAND BY and watch tear gas bombs, M-80s, pipes and other weapons to be used on White elderly people and women and men, then you need to get a viewpoint change, the old America is DEAD.
FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT! Because your LIVES depend upon it!

“You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the ‘Russian Revolution.’ It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be understated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.”

"We cannot state that all Jews were Bolsheviks. But: Without Jews there would never have been Bolshevism. For a Jew nothing is more insulting than the truth. The blood maddened Jewish terrorists had murdered sixty-six million in Russia from 1918 to 1957."
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), Nobel-Prize-winning novelist, historian

The Tribe has worked its Black Magic upon the Whites and the Whites are just starting to awaken.
The Police STAND DOWN and let the Soros funded ANTIFA use tear gas, M-80s and other weapons, wear MASKS, and they are NOT arrested, but the Whites who marching, foolishly perhaps, for Trump, but really for themselves as Whites, if they only realized it, are arrested by the police who LOOKED the other way when the Jew sponsored terrorists were committing felonies.

This is why you wear a helmet and protective glasses at all times, during such an event.

Munich, Gathering of the SA -- Speech of November 9, 1921
On November 9, 1921--just five days after the Battle of the Hall (Saalschlacht) where fewer than fifty SA Men had beaten back more than 400 communists and Jews who had tried to disrupt Hitler's speech in the Festival Hall of the Hofbrauhaus--Adolf Hitler addressed a gathering of SA Men. The following is what he told them:

For us there are only two possibilities: either we remain German or we come under the thumb of the Jews. This latter must not occur; even if we are small, we are a force. A well-organized group can conquer a strong enemy. If you stick close together and keep bringing in new people, we will be victorious over the Jews.

Undoubtedly some spoiled 20 yr old got 'outraged' by something in the 'news', and the twit wrote an article in the student newspaper.

Well, it also says that you can beat the living daylights out of the Wellesley editorial staff if you don't agree.

I wonder how long those nerds would last a lead pipe beating :)

Can we start with the editorial staff of HuffPo, then move on to WaPo and the NYT?

This will eventually go both ways.  Snowflakes, do you want to escalate and play this game for real, considering that most conservatives are also NRA members?  Because you know, if you instigate violence, that pesky self defense thing comes in to play and when idiots overstep the line that's when things get out of hand and idiots get shot.  And no idiots, you will not become heroes, you will be forgotten within a week.

MalteseFalcon's picture

"self defense thing comes in to play"

Why feel restrained by the usual meaning of "self-defense"?

Wellesley College seems to think that the concept can be unilaterally re-defined.

If you hear anything that offends you, defend yourself with force.

To better serve the progressive ideals of the nazi feminists at Wellesley College, they should declare themselves a sanctuary campus, import and house all the muslim male students ages 25 to 35, and provide sex slave/goat services-on-demand to the aforementioned male students.

provide sex slave/goat services-on-demand to the aforementioned male students

Something tells me if they did become a sanctuary for muslim males, they wouldn't have to offer to be sex slaves--there would be plenty of rape and other sexual assault going on.  I wonder then what their stance would be on "racist hate speech"...

This line of rhetoric is coming from Jewish leaders and spreading out into the broader populations of the institutions they control. We really need to start naming them, instead of generalizing them as globalists or leftists.

SubjectivObject's picture

Agree, more effort needs to be put into naming the person of the originator and propagator of the variant NWO policy positions/directives in all the venues the come to surface.  It is doing little good to merely state that such and such is happening without identifying the responsible agent behind it.  Get the names recorded in the public discourse for propagation into general awareness.

Bring it! Weak ass pussies only operate in hyena packs. We'll see how tough you are when one by one picked off the street, throw you in the trunk and leave you butt naked in the wilderness. Still sounds like fun? 

Always the same. Sounds so nice. Expecting others to comply until they do not and... Fight back! Suddenly the criminal becomes the victim. Preaching violence but expect to be protected from it. The world upside down. The weak and useless pretending to be strong and powerful.

I didn't see anything in the Wellesley brochure about physical conditioning, Krav Maga classes, fundamentals of body armor, weapons selction and training.  Did I miss something or is the "wet noodle" still the preferred method of violence.  Maybe they march up in a front lines facing the unpopular speakers and let go with "violence".  I can tell ya that didn't work out so well in that Boston area over 240 years ago.

This was completely predictable when "hate" crimes were enacted.  It is against everything America ever stood for to punish someone differently based on an attribute of their victim, or indeed even the "criminal's" alleged belifs.   All that ever mattered was an objective assessment of their actions.  Every "hate crime" on the books is a fundumental violation of equality before the law.  They are all institutionalized revenge.
