We could also invite Dr. Miriam Grossman to speak to the Sociology of Gender classes. Currently, we employ feminists who argue that all male/female differences are “socially constructed.” Dr. Grossman could explain, in medical terms, why the feminists’ Ms-guided decision to encourage promiscuity hurts women more than men.
We could also invite Dr. Larry Schweikart to speak in American History classes where students are taught that Ronald Reagan ran up higher deficits than Franklin Roosevelt. Larry could present them with charts they’ve never seen, which introduce them to the complex statistical idea of controlling for inflation.
In Microeconomics, we could have Dr. Richard Vedder explain how FDR’s New Deal policies exacerbated the Great Depression. We could invite the president to attend the lecture. I mean the President of the United States, not the President of UNCW.
In Linguistics, we could have John McWhorter talk about the deleterious effects the ebonics movement is having on black progress.
In our graduate course in Social Justice, I could make a guest appearance to talk about how most people on death row are white despite the fact that most homicides are committed by blacks.
The Campus Fairness Doctrine would cut both ways, of course. In my “Trials of the Century” class I teach about the O.J. Simpson case and the Charles Manson case. I argue that both are guilty. So, naturally, I would allow the feminist in my department who thinks O.J. is innocent (read: sides with O.J. over Nicole) to come make her case. I would also ask the sociologist who once told me that Manson was a “poor guy who got railroaded by the system” to come argue his innocence. Then I’ll remind everyone that insanity can negate mens rea but it can’t negate tenure.
Finally, I’ll have a First Amendment expert give a speech to the Women’s Resource Center. In it, he’ll explain that the Fourth Circuit has ruled that the display of child pornography is not protected by the First Amendment. Someone has to tell the empress that she isn’t wearing clothes.
