The distinction must be made between modern statist “liberals” and “progressive authoritarians.” That is the “liberals” and the The American Red Guards. The PC brigades. The college army (not really a large one, but vocal) of the intelligent dim.
Political correctness and the “grievance studies” are anti-intellectualism dressed up as postmodern intellectualism.
The truth is the current “post-colonial,” racial, gender obsession (in some circles) is a religion for the dim. A salve for the bright, but not the brightest.
I’m sorry if you don’t understand why The Great Books are great, or worse if you think the wisdom and knowledge of Western Civilization should be tossed aside in the name of reductionist politically correct dogma.
Some folks from Students for Liberty should join. Or maybe the lacrosse team.

Yale was really something at one time. Now, PC stupidity, and it is stupidity, has spread like a plague across campus. There is no way I’d send my child to Yale these days. No way.
It has been my experience that social justice “warriors” (SJWs) are just bullies wrapped up in a religion that helps them make sense of their – what often appears to be – sad little worlds. It’s not about justice. It’s about bullying and crushing intellectual inquiry because the SJWs know that if inquiry is allowed their whole worldview crumbles into a million pieces of perceived slights, microagressions, and sociology dissertations written by people who have no business getting a PHD in anything.
Hope you like your roommate.
This is what we’ve devolved to huh? If Michigan were to capitulate on this it would be appropriate to insist on no state money for the school (might be a problem for Michigan) including student loans. And perhaps alumni who do not agree with segregation should consider joining the #AlumniStrike too.
As we’ve said, Trump has unleashed a whole lot of crazy across the country.
Read him. Or don’t if you think you have more to learn from “gender studies.” Your choice.
Political correctness, founded in Marxism, is anti-intellectual and a philosophy of the dim witted.
