Harvard University’s student newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, declared “Universities must not grant figures such as Milo Yiannopoulos a platform to espouse their hateful and unsubstantiated claims,” during an article published by “The Crimson Editorial Board” on Sunday.

“Yiannopoulos does not deserve to be granted the platform of a university campus to espouse his hateful beliefs,” wrote the student newspaper on Sunday. “Institutions of higher education pride themselves on generating new knowledge and challenging old beliefs for the purposes of advancing our understanding of the world. Furthermore, these institutions are built on the principle of evidence-based research.”
“In contrast, Yiannopoulos appears to challenge others’ beliefs simply for the sake of being a contrarian, and he does so with little tenability for his claims,” they continued. “Yiannopoulos is little more than a racist, sexist, and anti-semite who encourages hate and fear rather than intellectual thought.”
The student newspaper also claimed “Yiannopoulos poses a tangible threat to the safety and well-being of university students,” before adding that “This alone should be more than enough for administrators to bar him from campuses in the first place.”

Time Magazine Goes Full SJW

There was a very funny (and very politically incorrect) line in the Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. movie Tropical Thunder, when Downey's character (who had turned himself black to get a role) advises Stiller, "Never go full retard." I bring it up because recently Time Magazine published an oped blaming Hillary's FBI investigation on, that's right, sexism.

This would be a good example of going full SJW (which is remarkably similar to going full retard, in case you missed the connection). Most left wing publications like the NY Times, USA Today, etc. Try to avoid full on SJW (Social Justice Warrior) ranting, and couch their left/liberal bias in more subtle opinion pieces and skewed reporting.

But Time maintains Hillary's woes are entirely due to her sex, because the media wouldn't be bothered with a presidential candidate being investigated by the FBI (twice) if she was male. Uh, gee Time, have you ever heard of N…
