George Will Gets Cancelled From College For Offensive 'Rape' Op-Ed

Conservative George Will believes he was cancelled to speak at a college because of his offensive "rape" op-ed. Can I get an 'amen' on that?
Views:

It's very rare in this day and age to see a conservative receive some sort of consequence for their horrible words and actions and Conservative pugilest George Will is still feeling the heat from his offensive "rape" op-ed in the Washington Post, where he downplayed college campus rape statistics and said that victimhood has become a coveted status.

Scripps College is the latest to take offense.

Scripps College revoked a speaking invitation to the Washington Post's George Will, an act the columnist believes is in response to a piece he wrote in June which trivialized sexual assault on college campuses.

In June, Will used his column to dispute evidence that 1 in 5 women on U.S college campuses experience sexual assault and argued that efforts to fight sexual assault on college campuses have made "victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges."

On October 6, a college newspaper called the Claremont Independent reported that the all-female Scripps College had revoked an invitation for Will to speak as part of a program "designed to promote conservative views on campus." Will suggested that the controversial June column was the impetus for the disinvitation, telling the Independent, "They didn't say that the column was the reason, but it was the reason."

According to the Independent, Christopher DeMuth, a member of the program's speaker selection committee who previously served as president of the conservative American Enterprise Institute resigned in response to the revoked invitation.

When does Will's op-ed come out where he says he's being victimized because of his views just like rape victims?
