This is nothing new. I had a very liberal undergrad prof (English, feminism, lit-crit) that I became good friends with. She constantly kvetched about having sent her kids to private school vs. public school. It should be noted her liberal guilt did not stop her from giving her kids the gift of affluence and social capital.

The argument about Egypt is stupid. Just tell her, "respect my white privilege. Oh, and by the way, how about removing those jeans, your watch, your jacket, and your shoes, and stop speaking English. You're appropriating my culture."

Oh how I wish I were in college again.

Jumping into the Orwellian language war, I've been thinking of some new words to introduce into MSM. So far I have:

Xenorational

Anglophobic

Climatology

Harvard Law Professor Mark Tushnet compares Christians to Nazis, seeks harsh treatment like concentration camps, seeks federal law to publicly execute conservatives.

The culture wars are over; they lost, we won. Remember, they were the ones who characterized constitutional disputes as culture wars (see Justice Scalia in Romer v. Evans, and the Wikipedia entry for culture wars, which describes conservative activists, not liberals, using the term.) And they had opportunities to reach a cease fire, but rejected them in favor of a scorched earth policy. The earth that was scorched, though, was their own. (No conservatives demonstrated any interest in trading off recognition of LGBT rights for “religious liberty” protections. Only now that they’ve lost the battle over LGBT rights, have they made those protections central – seeing them, I suppose, as a new front in the culture wars. But, again, they’ve already lost the war.). For liberals, the question now is how to deal with the losers in the culture wars. That’s mostly a question of tactics. My own judgment is that taking a hard line (“You lost, live with it”) is better than trying to accommodate the losers, who – remember – defended, and are defending, positions that liberals regard as having no normative pull at all. Trying to be nice to the losers didn’t work well after the Civil War, nor after Brown. (And taking a hard line seemed to work reasonably well in Germany and Japan after 1945.) I should note that LGBT activists in particular seem to have settled on the hard-line approach, while some liberal academics defend more accommodating approaches. When specific battles in the culture wars were being fought, it might have made sense to try to be accommodating after a local victory, because other related fights were going on, and a hard line might have stiffened the opposition in those fights. But the war’s over, and we won.

In the past 6 months Mizzou has had an attendance drop of 1,500 students. And a potential budget shortfall of $32 million. White flight is a very expensive mistake. This college is going to be so black Bill Cosby is about to wear a sweater with it's logo on it.

I had never heard of this Milo Yiannopoulos until this moment. He seems like a very clear-headed and forthright young man. I think I would enjoy having him as a friend.
