“what happens in higher education matters”
For anyone not in the know, a number of reporters at the New York Times are freaking out because the paper published an op-ed by Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas.
This is the consequence of campus social justice warriors entering the workforce.
Jennifer Kabbany writes at the College Fix:
‘We all live on campus now’
“We all live on campus now.”
That was the observation made by venerable writer Andrew Sullivan about the state of affairs Americans find themselves in today.
The comment was in response to another observation made by journalist Tim Carney: “Remember 6 years ago when conservatives would point at the censorious college PC woke leftists and say ‘LOL, those kids are in for a rude awakening they enter the real world.’ That was always wrong. It was the rest of us who needed to brace for them.”
They’re sentiments that The College Fix has offered for years: what happens in higher education matters. It reverberates. It has consequences — far-reaching ones.
Sullivan and Carney could have been talking about a lot of topics: violent riots (UC Berkeley in 2017, anyone?); cancel culture (pick a week); the call to “defund the police” (a.k.a. critical race theory).
But in this case they were talking about the New York Times’ decision to reform its op-ed policy after running a column by a Republican U.S. senator that was wildly unpopular among the left.
Remember 6 years ago when conservatives would point at the censorious college PC woke leftists and say "LOL, those kids are in for a rude awakening they enter the real world."
That was always wrong. It was the rest of us who needed to brace for them. https://t.co/iaLpFowZif

Journalists at the NY Times are calling for the censorship of a Republican senator and high ranking Dems around the country want to defund the police. The college campusification of the American left is now realized.
