One of those pieces of history that's so inconvenient to some

that they try to ignore it.  When it can't be ignored, it's still the fault of those Evil Europeans, because(the newer 'explanation') White Privilege.  Or something.

Never liked David Suzuki, and that was before he became one of the big Gerbil Worming people.  He's now demonstrated just why he doesn't like interviews where he can't control the questions.

"You don't want to carry those authors, they don't have the Correct opinions!"
Any bookstore that drops people over this, and then bitches about Freedom of Speech, is a bloody hypocrite.

And the New Campus Red Guard marches on.
Activists have also demanded the creation of an Office for Social Transformation, which would employ 15 students—young Robespierres in training—for the purposes of monitoring “racist, anti-black, transphobic, cissexist, misogynistic, ableist, homophobic, Islamophobic, and otherwise oppressive behavior on campus.” (Anti-Semitism, one notes, is curiously omitted.) These students will be granted terrifying powers to discipline faculty members who commit microaggressions. Professors—even tenured professors—can and will be placed under investigation if they are accused of maintaining insufficiently safe spaces within their classrooms.

These measures are hailed as “progressive” by the activists—because what could be more progressive than committees of liberal extremists conducting thoughtcrime investigations?
And the author better be careful, I'm sure that pointing out the 'no anti-semitism' omission is a microaggression.

To: Director Comey, FBI
Ref: 'Why do people suspect our motives in the Apple case?'

Sir, for the moment ignore some less-than-glorious actions by FBI over the past years: when we receive this slap in the face on top of various others, can you understand why we're not ready to trust ANY agency, including the one you run, to force it to be even easier to screw around in our lives?

Sincerely, etc.
