“We’re living targets on this campus”
College Republicans at Columbia have been targeted by Antifa but the school paper doesn’t seem to think that’s newsworthy.
Campus Reform reports:
Columbia newspaper silent after College Republicans doxing
The Columbia University student newspaper has declined to cover Antifa harassment towards the school’s College Republicans chapter despite both negative and positive coverage of the group in the past.
As Campus Reform previously reported, the NYC Antifa branch posted flyers of seven Columbia University College Republicans (CUCR) board members around campus, with each flyer containing their names, a photo, and a directive to readers that “if you see [name of board member], let him know what you think…”
Although NYC Antifa claimed responsibility for posting the first round of flyers, it appears that at least some Columbia students were involved as well, since flyers have been spotted in areas of campus only accessible to students.
“‘Let him know what you think…’ is a bit ambiguous and could reasonably be interpreted as ‘if you think this guy deserves to be beat-up, go for it,’” CUCR member Joey Siegel told Campus Reform, with CUCR President Ari Boosalis expressing similar sentiments.
“We’re living targets on this campus,” Boosalis recently told Fox News. “The scary thing is that we don’t know what these people will do to us. If I walk outside I could get attacked by any person.”
However, despite the concerns over potential Antifa violence, The Columbia Spectator has neglected to cover the doxing, a decision that CUCR president Boosalis argues is in line with the newspaper’s history of “biased coverage.”
