What are these administrators so afraid of? How does it hurt the school to let Shapiro speak?

The Washington Examiner reports:

Twenty Washington state legislators denounce Gonzaga’s refusal to let Ben Shapiro speak

Gonzaga University has drawn the ire of 20 Washington state legislators in the form of a jointly signed letter for the school’s recent refusal to allow conservative commentator Ben Shapiro to speak on campus.

The legislators denounced Gonzaga’s decision and asked the private university to reconsider their stance, arguing that denying Shapiro the chance to speak was against Gonzaga’s values and mission. The lawmakers also pointed to the fact that Gonzaga was surrounded by Republican voters and districts, which had the potential to affect their future enrollment numbers. The lawmakers warned that the path Gonzaga was on could lead it to be “an island of isolated political views.”

In November, citing their event policy and their “mission based on the teachings of Christ Jesus,” Gonzaga formally declined to allow Shapiro, who is the editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire, to speak on campus. Gonzaga’s stance was that Shapiro’s appearances had a tendency to draw large protests that would eventually lead to “extremely divisive and hateful speech and behavior, which is offensive to many people, regardless of their age, politics or beliefs.”

Hitler and Stalin didn’t let those who had different political view speak either. The progressive fascist are emulating their roll models!
