There’s more in the story, but this is enough for an introduction. There’s more: the chairman of the Boulder Faculty Assembly says my comments “border” on “hate speech.” Why stop at the border? In any case, they’re welcome to fire me if they want. As good a time as any to let Power Line’s readers know that as of next fall, I’ll be succeeding James Q. Wilson as the Ronald Reagan Distinguished Visiting Professor at Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Public Policy, with the plan to strike the term “visiting” from the title at some point soon.
Progressive thinking now dominates the student bodies of almost all American colleges and universities, and, like all such thought, makes a practice of acting in the precise manner they claim that those whom they hate do.
These are pocket-jackboots, whose notion of diversity is utter conformity to the progressive party line. They wear the same clothes, spout the same tired dogma, and hate the same people – all in the name of inclusion and tolerance.
CU-Boulder has always been a cesspool of lefty ignorance and intolerance, even back in the day when I used to hang out and get sloshed at The Sink, “up on the hill.” I was a lefty myself in those days, although slowly starting to recover from the malady, so perhaps it didn’t seem as noticeable as stories like this make it seem today.
A note: these little student-body Hitlers of today are tomorrow’s leftist politicians. Take note, and be warned.
