Should students have the right to police each others’ social media posts?

I report Williams College for outing pro-lifers on Twitter:

Calling attention to their political beliefs will surely direct violence their way, given the heavily pro-abortion/anti-life atmosphere on campus. I expect that those responsible will be sacked.

1) Welcome to EphBlog! We need more new authors. Who else wants to join?

2) Are you sure that this isn’t Fake News? Recall that we discussed these topics during the Williams Speaks Up movement a decade ago. I don’t think that there is anything new here. All these polices/procedures have been in place since 2008. I suspect that, outside of incidents like the Taco Six, they are almost completely unused.

3) So why is Reason reporting it now? I suspect that this is a dumb game of right wing telegram tag. Some student surfs around college web sites, looking for right wing click bait. She finds it. She reports it and then it moves its way across the RW echo chamber, until it is finally picked up at a semi-respectable location like Reason.

The weenies on campus will become known soon enough without being encouraged by an administration sanctioned system.

I bet if a student posted anything pro-Trump, he/she would be sited for a micro-agression.
