I’m not gonna watch your weird link, but I am curious to know if anyone else on this bored actually works in academia.

There seem to be a lot of people who love to criticize it, but I doubt half of them even went to college let alone work at one.

That doesn't change the facts of what she discusses. This PC identity is showing up all the time. Academia is at the fore front of it.

Not a single one of my university professors would have accepted “that’s just the way things used to be” as a justification for an argument.

Which, sadly, does kind of put the nail on the coffin of anyone hoping to find “conservative thinking” there.

That’s not a conspiracy. That’s just the nature of a place where any idea must be defended on its own merits. Not a “gut instinct” or “level of comfort”.

She was a right winger that wrote a book and was on Levin's show pimping it out..no more, no less. Her "opinions" are no more valid than any other writers. Levin has an agenda, and she fit that agenda.
