Progressives Score Victory in Campaign to Silence George Will
In reality, progressives want fewer voices in the debate, not more. And the only voices they want to hear are the ones that agree with them.
That’s the takeaway from the latest case of leftist targeting: George Will.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has dropped columnist George Will and told readers that his provocative column on sexual assault on college campuses was a factor in the decision.
“The change has been under consideration for several months, but a column published June 5, in which Mr. Will suggested that sexual assault victims on college campuses enjoy a privileged status, made the decision easier,” the editor’s note read. “The column was offensive and inaccurate; we apologize for publishing it.”
For now, the Washington Post is defending Will, calling his column “well within the bounds of legitimate debate.”
