Yet you are unable to show any evidence that professors are punished for “violating academic left orthodoxies”. Sorry, I’m not afraid of your imaginary boogeyman that you use to stir up feelings of victimhood in your fellow asshats.— PZ Myers (@pzmyers) April 9, 2019
Curiously, I (O’Leary for News) know of no non-Darwinist who blew off the attack and its significance. It takes a completely entrenched and socially unhealthy privilege to not see what happened to Bret Weinstein.
From the comment stream:
Jesus dude. Have you heard of @BretWeinstein and @HeatherEHeying? They were literally hunted by baseball bat wielding students, denied campus police protection by the admin, and had to quit their jobs because they dared to say kicking white people off campus was “problematic.”— Dave Stephens (@DaveStephens11) April 9, 2019
Later, Myers seemed to double down but for some reason, I am unable to embed the tweet.
Yes, I’m familiar with their story, but not just the Fox News version. I see two people who demonize the students at their former university, who are now cuddling up with the right wing & making palsies with people like Tucker Carlson.— PZ Myers (@pzmyers) April 9, 2019
We are told that Weinstein’s brother Eric flagged attention to this episode: “The biologist @pzmyers in a thread with my brother & fellow biologist @BretWeinstein . @pzmyers is making the case that nothing bad happens to professors who violate leftist orthodoxy. This is brutal leftist reality denial on a scale unfathomable to me.”
Maybe Myers’s callous attitude is unfathomable to Bret’s brother Eric. But it is the reality progressives seek to impose on everyone, every day. The progressive war is, increasingly, with facts, with nature itself. They can’t win but we can certainly lose.
