As we approach year-end, I just sent out my third year-end letter to readers and supporters who subscribe to our newsletter. It's quite different from my prior two letters - I don't do all the talking, I let 'canceled' people whose stories we covered tell their story about Legal Insurrection. Here it is:
University of Chicago geophysics professor Dorian Abbot was supposed to give a lecture at MIT until the school caved to a campus mob over Abbot's unwoke views on diversity.
His lecture got picked up by Princeton University instead and thousands of people have signed up for it.
"Cancel culture" is a plague that has infected academia and campuses for a long time, and has moved from campus to the general culture. But it has been particularly prominent in the news in 2020 over issues of racial politics, particularly the Black Lives Matter Movement and Critical Race Theory (sometimes called "antiracist") indoctrination.
