On June 6th of this year, conservative columnist George Will published a piece in the Washington Post where he disputed statistics by the Obama administration concerning sexual assault and rape of women on college campuses.
Since that time, there’s been a huge firestorm or his column which has led calls for his column being dropped , most notably The St Louis Post-Dispatch.
If you haven’t read the column and already formed an opinion based on what others have written about this controversy, you should take a few minutes to peruse what he wrote.
It’s instructive in a way. Whether his facts are correct may be debatable, but it appears that he’s being punished for his opinion. As he states in the video below, that’s his job; his opinion.
You may dislike him, what he writes about, infer any intent you wish but just like all of us, he has the right to his opinion. He doesn’t have a right to make up facts with that opinion, but beyond that, even if it’s unpopular, no one should be calling for anyone to be fired.
We’ve seen that before. Haven’t we?
