“The greater implication here is that the Stanford Daily is the ideological reflection of the most radical elements of the campus left.”
The newspaper published a column calling for the removal of the College Republicans, but won’t allow the College Republicans to respond. They’re speaking out in other ways.

Stanford conservatives stand up to ‘leftist fascism’ amid calls to cancel
The Stanford Daily, the student newspaper of Stanford University, published an op-ed criticizing the Stanford College Republicans, saying they don’t deserve a place on campus. The news outlet now isn’t letting the College Republicans chapter respond to the allegation.
Claire Dinshaw, a senior at Stanford, wrote the op-ed, titled “SCR does not deserve its place on campus,” where she argued that the group has gone “unpunished” for promoting “misogynistic” and “hateful” views.
“There are multiple groups on campus that have platformed and promoted racist, misogynistic and hateful rhetoric over the years. But one group stands among the rest as the most consistently unpunished offender: the Stanford College Republicans,” she wrote.
She went on to say that the SCR’s have “frequently provided a platform, or have themselves used, hateful and discriminatory rhetoric that serves to dehumanize groups of students that are members of the Stanford community. Furthermore, they have caused the doxxing of students and professors. SCR’s consistent disregard for student safety and unwillingness to engage in good-faith debates are grounds for removing them from campus.”…
Stephen Sills, president of the SCR’s told Campus Reform that the incident shows how the Stanford Daily is an “ideological reflection” of the most “radical elements” of those on the campus left.
“The greater implication here is that the Stanford Daily is the ideological reflection of the most radical elements of the campus left. We’ve actually received an outpouring of support from Stanford students on the right and center-left. Stanford students see the value in our contributions to free debate and civil discourse on Stanford’s campus,” Sills said. “It is blatantly clear that individuals such as Ms. Dinshaw have no interest in attending our events or understanding our point of view. Rather, Dinshaw joins a concerning trend of students interested [in] stifling any and all healthy debate and civil dialogue at Stanford.”
