Falwell Censored Anti-Trump Column in Student Newspaper

Falwell Censored Anti-Trump Column in Student Newspaper

Pistol packin’ Jerry Falwell Jr., President of Liberty University by grace of God being fathered by LU founder Jerry Falwell Sr., censored a column critical of his buddy Donald Trump in the school’s student newspaper, claims an editor. Joel Schmieg is the Sports Editor of the Liberty Champion, so he knows about locker room talk. “I have never in my life heard guys casually talk about preying on women in a sexual manner,” he wrote in his weekly column, in reference to the GOP candidate’s open mic remarks.

Mr. Falwell had the column omitted from the paper, claiming it was “redundant.” Oh, so there was another “grab her by the pussy” column in the Christian school’s newspaper? Turns out there was a short letter about Trump from an unhappy alum.

Lord have mercy. College president Jerry Falwell Jr. has certainly taught his students a few lessons about Christian morality, conservative politics,  and the First Amendment.
