Co-Managing Editor of School Paper at Loyola University Also Allegedly Leads Campus Communist Group

Co-Managing Editor of School Paper at Loyola University Also Allegedly Leads Campus Communist Group

“also worked at the Chicago Sun-Times, one of the major papers in the city”

Do you think this person’s communist views influence the way the paper covers the news? Also, this is a Catholic school.

The College Fix reports:

Leader of Catholic university’s unofficial Communist group is also an editor on the campus paper

The new “Premier” of Loyola University Chicago’s unofficial Communist student group is also an editor for the Loyola Phoenix.

“With the semester’s end, and most of our CC graduating, we begin a new chapter of our Party’s history under the leadership of the new Premier, @TanRylee!” the Communist Party of Loyola University Chicago announced on Twitter on May 30.

Rylee Tan is also the “co-managing editor” of the campus paper and he previously worked as its opinion editor.

“I’m lucky to have some awesome people by my side,” Katie Anthony, the graduating editor-in-chief said in a May 12 column. “Zack Miller and Rylee Tan will be serving as Co-Managing Editors.”

Tan also worked at the Chicago Sun-Times, one of the major papers in the city.

As an opinion editor, Tan wrote pieces in support of unionization and higher wages, while also writing news articles that covered union demands on campus. Other news articles from last year cover COVID news both nationally and as it related to Loyola.

Tan also said that “imperialism” contributed to violence against Asians.

“In watching and reading about the rallies all over the country, one aspect of anti-Asian violence — arguably one of the most important — continues to be left out of mainstream discourse,” Tan said. The aspect left out, according to the newspaper editor, is “the connection between anti-Asian violence at home, and U.S. imperialism abroad.”

A faith headed up by a communist now anyway, so where’s the problem?
