Steve Hayes is correct, rabidly ignorant and overly aggressive ideologues are increasingly able to Mau Mau campus officials into knuckling under to absurdly inappropriate demands which are directly repugnant to the most hallowed and most often repeated principles of the academy. I witnessed its origins first hand in the late '60s and early '70s when cowardly campus administrators turned a blind eye to overtly criminal misbehavior and refused to discipline or even to acknowledge significant transgressions of policy or criminal statues organized by minority mobs least adverse publicity result.The seeds planted forty years ago are bearing today's strange and indigestible fruit.
What's especially telling is how lock-step academics in different places are in these and other matters these days. As if they all only knew one song. Plainly the sheeple are not all confined to the pasture.
Yes, it's all about conformity.
