No Statue of Limitation in Identity Politics

Tear ’em all down.

Mark Lilla is a liberal history professor at Columbia. He blames identity politics for Democrats’ failure to win elections. The professor thinks the left focuses too much on what keeps us apart rather than on what brings us together. He says his conservative students make arguments based on ideas and principles. But his liberal students make their arguments based on identity.

Here’s a link to his latest book The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics.  And here are a couple of reviews from The Guardian.

Speechless in Berkeley

A generation ago UC Berkeley was considered the home of the free speech movement. Now students and imported thugs riot there to silence speakers they don’t like.

Speechless

Last week the university cancelled a speech by Ann Coulter. The school claimed it couldn’t assure her safety. She vowed to speak anyway but backed out yesterday.

Update 4/29:

Apparently anti-free speech protestors are pro-free massage. They got free rubdowns in the “Empathy Tent” at the sans Coulter event.

Middlebury College students, and some of their professors, didn’t want to hear what author Charles Murray had to say. So they turned their backs on him and chanted slogans during his lecture. Then, as he was forced out of the lecture hall, protesters assaulted him and his group. A Middlebury professor accompanying Dr. Murray was injured.

Tuition, room and board, and fees at Middlebury College amount to $65,000 a year.

The Obama administration sent a “Dear Colleague” letter to Universities threatening to yank their federal funding for failure to offer an open admission policy for their restrooms.

Bathroom Administration

The Trump administration is reversing course and leaving bathroom administration up to the states.

Getting Uncle Sam out of the bedroom was a  good thing. So why not the bathroom too?
