Even Liberal Professors Can’t Navigate the Topsy-Turvy World of Political Correctness

There is an odd ideological dynamic playing out across college campuses. The highest share of students since the 1970s consider themselves left of center and yet they are also more likely to hold illiberal views, such as demonstrating hostility to free speech. Every year the Higher Education Research Institute surveys incoming freshman about a variety…

The Left is Wrapping It’s Political Correctness In a Veil of Constitutionality. Don’t Let Them.

There is a classic horror movie trope in which a baby sitter gets a phone call asking if she’s checked on the kids. In a panic the sitter calls the police who trace the call and tell her that it came from inside the house. The scenario works by turning the idea that you are…

Georgetown Students Demand Ideological Diversity Among Faculty

Higher education has lost its identity at the moment. Rather than foster an environment where challenging ideas can be discussed and debated, it has bowed to the mob, allowing, and in some cases supporting students’ efforts to censor the viewpoints presented on campus. In some ways, this trend toward political correctness is a predictable outgrowth…

Evergreen College’s Budget Goes Into the Red After PC Protests

“There is a huge difference between a group or coalition deciding to voluntarily absent themselves from a shared space in order to highlight their vital and under-appreciated roles, and a group or coalition encouraging another group to go away,” Evergreen College professor Bret Weinstein wrote in an email to faculty. “The first is a forceful…

Google’s Attempt at “Diversity” is Really Just a Demand for Homogeneity

Eighty percent of Google’s technical employees are male. That’s a hard thing to square for a company who has long sought to be a leader in diversity, and views it as a necessary predicate to growth. “I walk around the campus where I work and see a vibrant mix of races and cultures. Every one…

Diatribes Have Replaced Dialogue on College Campuses

“On a college campus, one’s right to speak — or to be —should never be based on skin color.” Helen of Troy had a face that launched a thousand ships. Professor Bret Weinstein’s seemingly innocuous words launched a thousand protests. Evergreen College has now been shut down for the third straight day and Professor Weinstein…

There Are No Shades of Gray in Today’s Progressive Movement

Liberals have a tendency to eat their own. In their inexorable march leftward, progressives seem to forget that they’re leaving devotees behind, people who support their ideas, but only to a rational degree. Nowhere is that more clear than the so-called women’s movement. This tendency toward political self-immolation isn’t limited to any given issue. Indeed,…

Young Adults are Being Suffocated by the Left’s PC Culture

This blog is, in many ways, devoted to answering the question of whether Millennials will survive the Left. In short, will liberalism’s penchant for big government and disdain for liberty inexorably put us on a path to losing our unique American identity. But in an unexpected twist some left-leaning publications have been forced to ask…
