  1. Great quote “Bigotry never feels like bigotry to the person committing it. The left-wing brand of bigotry—the kind directed at people deemed to be powerful and privileged—is especially easy to justify, as it takes some deliberate thinking to remember that the targets can still be victims.4 It’s the brand of bigotry famously employed by groups like the Maoist Revolutionaries and the Rwandan Hutu militia. But the Nazis—more of a right-wing movement—used it too. Hitler didn’t only talk about the Jews as outsider scum, he also talked about them the way left-wing movements talk about their enemies: as powerful, privileged manipulators who were pulling the strings of society in secret, hard-to-see ways.”

  2. Another great quote “FROM PLURALITY TO PURITY
    University faculty have always skewed progressive. In the past, the ratio of progressive to conservative professors was in the 2:1 – 4:1 range. But over the past 30 years, that ratio has grown far more extreme. One large 2021 study looked at 12,372 professors at the most elite universities in every U.S. state, noting their political party registration. STEM fields have maintained a semblance of ideological diversity, with a Democrat to Republican ratio of 4.5:1 in Chemistry and 5.5:1 in Mathematics. Psychology (11.5:1) and Philosophy (11.4:1) were far more lopsided, while English (26.8:1), Sociology (27.0:1), and Anthropology (42.2:1) were more homogeneously progressive still. By far the most lopsided ratio emerged from “interdisciplinary studies”—the category that is home to most social justice classes. These areas were so politically homogeneous, the study’s author says, that “I could not find a single Republican with an exclusive appointment to fields like gender studies, Africana studies, and peace studies.”

    The study also looked at professors’ political donations between 2015 and 2018, which is one possible proxy for political fervor. The ratio of donation dollars to the Democrats vs. the Republicans was 21:1 overall. These ratios were the most lopsided at top-ranked colleges, like Harvard ($96 donated to Democrats for every $1 donated to Republicans), Brown (113:1), and Cornell (196:1). At Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Penn, Duke, Berkeley, Georgetown, Cal Tech, and Johns Hopkins, the ratio was infinite because not a single professor donated to the Republicans”
