Liberals attack Duffy’s daughter for stand against socialism

Empower Wisconsin | March 11,  2020 

By Celine Ryan, Campus Reform 

The daughter of former Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy found herself in a swarm of online harassment for speaking out against socialism.

As part of a project for the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics called “Why I Vote”, UChicago student Evita Duffy took a photo with a whiteboard that read “I vote because the coronavirus won’t destroy America, but socialism will.” 

The photo was posted on Facebook by the institute, but Duffy says she was not prepared for the slew of online backlash she received.

Duffy spoke out in an op-ed, explaining “fellow students attacked my character, my intellect, my family, my appearance, and even threatened me with physical violence, using foul and offensive language.”

“I was called a racist and a xenophobe,” Duffy wrote. “Some compared me to animals. Others declared that they would personally stop me from voting, and many defended the personal attacks, saying I deserved to be bullied and that I don’t belong at the University of Chicago on account of my beliefs. I was told by many that I was the most hated person on campus. It was frightening. It was also hurtful, since some of the attacks came from people I considered friends.”
