For most people, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message was about tolerance and inclusion for all. But for radical activists at Dartmouth College, MLK Day is an excuse to protest “far-right imperialism” and discriminate against conservatives and independents.
Last week, two non-liberal Dartmouth students were barred from attending a meeting held by campus activists for the purpose of organizing public MLK Day activities. They were denied entrance by a female student, who first asked them to state their political affiliation, according to The College Fix.
The students are contributors to The Dartmouth Review — the campus’s independent, conservative student newspaper — and described themselves as independents. This was enough to get them banned from the meeting.
