Bad News For Academia

Political Correctness Has Peaked.

So claims attorney and National Review staff writer, David French. And he takes no prisoners:
If you’re Social Justice Warrior, you’re a liar. You actively spread absurd falsehoods about the nature of men, women, sex, and culture that can’t withstand even the slightest scrutiny. You change history and conceal facts to fit preferred narratives, even when it costs human lives. You claim the best of intentions yet achieve the worst of outcomes. And through it all, you hate the very nation and political system that have granted you the liberties you so grotesquely abuse. . . . the PC Left is reaching its limit. Intolerance is ugly, self-righteousness is unappealing to everyone but the already-converted, and lies eventually lose to reality.
Again, contrast this piece with the absolutely delusional scoffing at the existence of PC coming from many in academia, as well as many "professional" historians. Moreover, I think the worldview described by the "hate the very nation and political system that have granted you the liberties you so grotesquely abuse" comment is the offspring of the "anti-American Exceptionalism" attitude. The similarities in perspectives are undeniable unless, of course, you're in denial, as so many of that persuasion are.

You can read the piece here, which dovetails nicely with a recent post of mine.
