Campus Police Chief Placed on Leave After Students Discover He Liked Conservative Tweets

“unacceptable for someone in charge of keeping any community safe”

The police chief didn’t even write things on Twitter that angered students. He just liked them.

The Daily Wire reports:

Campus Police Chief Put On Leave After Student Outrage For Liking NRA And Trump Tweets

On Wednesday, Mount Holyoke College announced that the newly-selected campus police chief Daniel Hect was placed on administrative leave after a backlash when students discovered he had liked conservative tweets on his Twitter account.

The whole ordeal started when Hect was appointed to lead the Mount Holyoke College and Smith College shared campus police departments. Then on February 6, Hect announced his new appointment at MHC and Smith on his personal Twitter account, The Daily Wire previously reported.​

“I am excited to announce I have accepted the position of Chief of Police at Mount Holyoke and Smith colleges, two of the most prestigious all women’s institutions in the nation,” he tweeted.

Hect’s excitement was short lived because soon after, students investigated his Twitter account, finding a few conservative-leaning tweets that he “liked.” Two tweets were from the National Rifle Association, one wishing followers a Merry Christmas and one stating, “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” Other tweets were from President Trump discussing the border wall and the government shutdown.

The MHC student who shared screenshots of the tweet said it was “unacceptable for someone in charge of keeping any community safe, let alone a campus as diverse as MHC’s, to be publicly displaying his support for hateful regimes and organizations, as well as for individuals who demonize migrants from Mexico or other latin american nations.”

So tired of these snowflakes falsely accusing someone of a conservative bent of “demonizing” someone or some thing, when at the same time the snowflakes are actively demonizing the conservative individual. The hypocrisy abounds.

Conservative thought is **not** hateful.

    I’m on the same page as you. What really concerns me is that these snowflakes will be in charge by the time I’m in retirement.

All those guilty of thoughtcrime must be destroyed.

Thinking that thinking is not a thoughtcrime is a thoughtcrime.

This is one more example of colleges using a political litmus test to exclude conservatives from admission and employment there.

In all their fawning over “diversity,” they actively exclude any diversity of thought, opinion, professional activity, and politics. In an academic environment, one would think that such diversity would be more important than skin color.

    I agree! It seems most ‘educational’ institutions today have no use for intelligent inquiry, dialogue, debate, or the scientific method. They appear to be on the path to the lowest common denominator: more income, grade inflation, and reduced rigor.

So essentially, in the eyes of Academia, Conservatives have no First Amendment Rights; Hate Speech against Conservatives isn’t Hate Speech at all. We’ve already seen that Hate Crimes against Conservatives are tolerated and even encouraged.

Essentially this amounts to taking someones livelihood away because they do not agree with you?

And what the heck is Mount Holyoke College? Never mind, I looked it up and at $50k a year you are being taken! Does it even rank in the top world universities?

We can’t have individuals deviating one iota from Leftist orthodoxies.

When people are consistently punished and vilified by the Leftist jackboots, for evincing insufficient fealty towards Leftist orthodoxies, we have reached full-blown totalitarianism.

Students didn’t authorize the action, though, that was done by administrators who think their turn won’t come.

Hope he sues the living Hell out of the admin (personally, not as college admins). And wins.
