Campus Reform: Nothing says progress quite like a hoard of liberal college students bullying one of their peers because of her conservative values. This morning (Dec. 4), a Campus Reform correspondent awoke to a threatening note taped to her dorm room door after she wrote a piece on a Ferguson protest that took place on her campus.
Yvonne Dean-Bailey, a freshman political science major at Mount Holyoke College (MHC), attended the student-organized protest held on Monday. She took photos, reached out to the event organizers, and researched the demonstration. And like anyone in professional journalism strives to accomplish, Yvonne found a unique angle for her story and ran with it.
But it was that angle—an event organizer asking “white folks” to keep their hands down during the demonstration—which angered crusaders for equality at Mount Holyoke so much that they resorted to “fighting the good fight” with hateful notes and vicious attacks on an online message board.
Since the article, Yvonne has been called a bigot, “closed-minded” [sic], hateful, homophobic, privileged, racist, rich, and transphobic. Yvonne’s appearance, character, intellect, and integrity have been eviscerated.
These attacks have all come from women—her Mount Holyoke peers.
Of course, none of these ad hominem attacks can be duly attributed, though the site requires a MHC email address to post. While these petulant college kids are so quick to become social justice warriors, they must do so anonymously in a purely phenomenal show of cowardice.
According to Mount Holyoke’s website, the college was founded in 1837 as a place where women could “develop their intellects, hone the power of their voices, and cultivate courage.” But what kind of courage are the women cultivating when they spend their collegiate days hiding behind anonymous online posts attacking the views—and the appearance—of one of their peers?
These women are not empowering each other or honing their own voices. They’re creating a homogenous liberal echo chamber where only the sounds of chosen voices can ring out without fear.
“Kindly take your bigotry and miniscule world view [sic] home with you and leave them there when you go, or consider somewhere else to voice your ignorance,” reads the note from Yvonne’s secret admirers.
Admittedly, I didn’t attend an all-women’s college, but I don’t think that was the type of female empowerment and cultivation of courage Mary Lyon had in mind when she dreamt up the school. But as a woman, I’m not afraid to say the level of intolerance the women at Mount Holyoke have displayed towards Yvonne is absolutely abhorrent.
To their credit, Mount Holyoke administrators, when reminded of the school’s strict anti-harassment policy by Campus Reform, have encouraged Yvonne to schedule a visit with the Dean of Students—a visit that will include the organizers of Monday’s Ferguson protest.
Are the women of Mount Holyoke so afraid of Yvonne’s conservative voice that she has to be flanked by the very peers who could be behind the anonymous threats at all times?
Yvonne says she doesn’t feel safe on her own college campus, her own community, but as she knows, true courage does not bend to frivolous attacks of intimidation. “Despite this I will continue to be an independent and active voice on campus until all sides are considered,” Yvonne told Campus Reform.
While immaturity and cowardice run rampant around Mount Holyoke, it seems Yvonne’s own bravery is the only flickering hope that any of the school’s founding principles can still be found on that campus.

  1. It’s not supposed to work that way

     
  2. Why would anyone want to go to a College like this anyway? She could learn all the same actual information,MINUS the Liberal slant,on her own. The only thing that would be missing would be the Degree,which,as we’ve seen during the current Badministration,is pretty much worthless as it relates to the Job Market,made even MORE so considering the ungodly EXPENSE of a College Education.

     
  3. Education is a field that I found to be strangely insane. It really brings out the worst in people. Why this is I don’t know. I’m glad I’m out of it.

    The person who wrote the note has some very undesirable traits in their handwriting/printing. The writing indicates a severe lack of listening skills and traits of living for the moment. There is some clubbing on the letter formations which indicates signs of meanness. The writing indicates being out of control, with low self-esteem, and some traits of impulsivity. There are traits of a “psyche overlay” usually rooted in childhood. One would surmise, that since the writer attends an institution for higher learning, she would know how to spell the word “disdainfully” correctly. Education , does not always equal having knowledge or wisdom. It appears the writer lacks in all three categories. Leeann

     
    • Typical spoiled suburbanite college student (female) with issues… might be verging on bulimia or a little cutting, if it didn’t cut into her time drinking cheap beer out of red Solo cups while trying to attract hot (obnoxious) guys wearing baseball caps indoors with only 34Bs at loud house parties. (Please, someone tell me college has changed… )

       
  5. Nothing says ‘higher education’ like a student sending a threatening letter to someone and they can’t spell….”distainfully” = disdainfully
    Also, what does “transphobic” and “homophobic” have to do with ferguson?

     
    • “Also, what does “transphobic” and “homophobic” have to do with ferguson?” Nothing, but it sounds cool and is SOP for liberals when you can’t debate the facts.

       
      • Heh heh, I have been called racist, homophobic, transphobic, hater, bible thumper Nazi, sexist a times all at once by far left libtards when the subject had nothing to do with any of the above.
        As I recall one of the times was when I got in a debate with a bunch of Harvard Square millennial zombies about my feeling that Apple almost seems like a religious cult
        Liberal does NOT mean the same thing as it did when I was a boy.

         
      • HA! HA! So true!

         
    • The most depressing thing about college graffiti was that some people after 14 years of education (on average) couldn’t spell the gerund of the F-word correctly (-en, not -ing or -in’) when they wrote it on the wall…

       
  6. My analysis of the note indicates to me:
    that she does not know how to select stationery,
    has poor penmanship
    probably was just passed through the system
    is unable to frame a thought or form a sentence
    is academically seventh grade level
    is most likely knocked (up but does not know who da mommy daddy is be)
    and is a dumb liberal bitch

    Reply to DCG: Wear the Bible Thumper accusation proudly. People who use those terms are speaking for the evil one, Satan. Remember, the devil is an accuser. Reply to Dr. Eowyn: Sprinkling Holy Water on some people would probably make them steam, sizzle and melt. Leeann

     
  8. The new fascists are becoming more dangerous. It won’t be long before they’re hauling Christians into kangaroo courts, and doing what Hitler did.

     
  9. The term Liberal has been hijacked and is being used by the insurgents as a cover.
    All FOTM posters seem to share the same frustrations. My previous post was unnecessarily vulgar, but I am angry and frustrated.
