A cowering editorial board at Oklahoma State University succumbed to the backlash incited by posting an op-ed that opposed masks carrying; prompting them so as to add an anti-triggering clause and oust its editor-in-chief for publishing the piece.
According to a report from Not The Bee, Madison Farris — editor-in-chief for the O’Colley scholar paper — was requested to resign from her function by the editorial board after she known as necessary masks carrying a violation of her private freedoms in her opinion piece, “Enough is Enough.” Farris grew passionate over the ruling when she was instructed to put on a masks throughout class, refused, and needed to depart the lecture corridor.
O’Colley’s editorial board selected to guard itself from on-campus outrage by including a correction:
We welcome any and all opinions providing rebuttal of this column, and don’t want to diminish any opinion. As American residents, we affirm our perception within the First Amendment and the appropriate as journalists to specific our private opinions irrespective of if our viewpoint is completely different from these round us
Patience was skinny towards the coed editor over her inflammatory opinion and the board requested that Farris submit a resignation letter. Madison went together with the pandering digital press’ request — additionally calling them out for siding with the outrage mob over cosmic theater.
“I regret that this was the outcome of exercising my First Amendment rights, but even more so, I regret that I have been robbed of the opportunity to learn from my errors and that productive discussion was unable to take place,” claimed Farris’ resignation letter.
The scholar paper later obtained and revealed one in all its letters to the editorial board, which piled on the criticism towards Farris utilizing logic as porous as a surgical masks.
“I could not help but feel you were (and possibly still are) missing the larger point and I felt compelled to respond,” wrote Dr. Kevin McFarland, alumni from OSU’s Class of ’95. “What I would first say to you may sound a little harsh, but please stop thinking of yourself so much and consider others a little more.”
The critic added, “I have had COVID-19, I am fully vaccinated, and I strongly dislike wearing a mask because it fogs up my glasses. However, I will wear one to prevent the spread of a known disease in an area where it is known to have been.”
On Wednesday’s episode of OutKick the Show, Clay Travis mentioned the endless COVID restrictions that Americans are subjecting themselves to by refusing to acknowledge the knowledge, drop the masks and reside a standard life.
