Fascist quote of the day

From Wellesley student newspaper.  “If people are given the resources to learn and either continue to speak hate speech or refuse to adapt their beliefs, then hostility may be warranted.” [my emphasis] The context shows they mean what they say.

 

I would like the student newspaper to discuss the paradox of them being confronted by a free-speech advocate.  Assuming the advocate presents his arguments for free speech, and the editorial board ‘refuse[s] to adapt their beliefs’, would hostility against the board be warranted?
