Race to the Bottom

Here’s an article from the D on college professors and a petition to denounce “threats, taunts, and intimidation” in debates. Apparently, dissent is appearing in the two-headed monster of Jim Wright and James Freedman — Freedman engineered the petition, and Wright refuses to sign it. Because Wright has found a new respect for free speech and concedes that the price is oftentimes unpleasant speech? Alas, no. He’s worried because the petition only mentions Jewish kids, and what about those poor Muslims? He would willingly sign it, if only itall of the Left’s favorite groups, and not just Jews!

Watching lefties try to outflank each other in lefty nonsense is pretty entertaining, however.
