Outgoing State College Republican Chair: Make Sure What You Say is Politically Correct Before You Say It
Ethan Wingfield has resigned as chairman of the State College Republican Federation (h/t the RI Report website). Mr. Wingfield’s resignation letter includes this vague statement on freedom of speech…
As I leave this post, College Republicans around this state have created multiple controversies by exercising our liberty of free speech. We are conservatives, not liberals. Use wisdom, and be virtuous when you exercise free speech.If Mr. Wingfield has problems with positions expressed by other Rhode Island College Republicans, or with how they’ve been expressed, he should challenge specifically what he finds to be objectionable — and do it in a way without recommending that campus Republicans limit themselves to speech that it is, in a literal sense, politically correct.
