George is right that the elimination of the Alexander Hamilton Center by leftist faculty shows who controls Hamilton College and that this ruling claque won’t hesitate to use its power of veto to suppress non-leftist viewpoints.
Nor will it hesitate to pile on more ideological lopsidedness on campus.
