In the continuing “Liberals are the real Fascists” story that people have decided to just run with Reason essentially reprinted this article (https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Churchill-At-Skidmore-curiosity-might-get-you-15553968.php#photo-19749884)
This Reason article and the source article don’t contain any direct quotes from the students.
Anyone else think it’s odd that both articles contain zero direct quotes from anyone making the complaint? Like maybe there may be more to this that “He went to a Blue Lives Matter display”
Why would two different articles be made without a single direct quote from someone making the complaint?
There are quotes that are purported to be from people, but no direct quotes (there are direct quotes from students who are against his firing, so it’s not like Churchill didn’t reach out to Students)
Also, the articles state that his Wife is not employed by the school, but it’s clear from school sources that there are classes taught by the wife.
I’m concerned that there really is only one side being presented here and the Students are being portrayed as focused on a single event rather than even addressing their concerns directly.
On Balance; only the “free speech” of one party here is being defended.
Here’s one from a Student, take from it what you will, but at least is gives the Students themselves a voice that both linked articles don’t http://skidmorenews.com/new-blog/2020/8/31/opinion-the-petersons-amp-blue-lives-matter-students-reveal-a-pattern-of-racism-among-skidmore-faculty-and-staff
