Columbia U. Students Tear Down Posters Advertising Christina Hoff Sommers Visit

Individualist-feminist author Christina Hoff Sommers is giving a talk at Columbia University, but some students don’t want anyone to know about it.

Posters advertising Sommers’ visit were tore down in buildings across campus, according to Toni Airaksinen, a reporter for Campus Reform and student at Columbia-affiliated Barnard College. Airaksinen wrote on Twitter that only one of about 20 posters survived for a full day.

Look, if students really don’t want to listen to Sommers, they are under no obligation to attend her talk. But other students might appreciate the chance to hear from someone who represents a perspective they are unlikely to learn about in class.

And if Columbia’s leftist-students are so afraid of alternative perspectives, they can’t have very much confidence in the persuasiveness of their own beliefs.

Sommers’ talk, “Victims, Victims Everywhere,” is at 7:00 p.m. on November 1.
