Wow, what an example of tolerance to divergent ideas. He will continue working where he is because he is trying to change, fundamentally, our system of public education (sound familiar?). With regard to your last sentence - if true, it doesn't say much for Cornell.

We do. "Nationalized industry, identity politics"—those were the NSDAP platform, and they're very popular in academia.

We have already hired professors who espouse Marxism and progressivism, and those who publicly mock Christianity, or religion of any sort. What's your take on those hires?

Oh, I see, only divergent ideas of which you approve are allowed. Speaking of extremism, shouldn't you go back and read your own post?

Divergent ideas? Well gee, nazism and satanism are divergent ideas too. Should we hire professors who espouse them?

Liberal academics have been using speech codes for years. They hear an idea they don't like and it makes them angry. But they don't quite know how to defeat the idea on its own merits. So instead of either a) taking the time to cool down and offer a rational response, or b) actually changing their view, they simply give in to the impulse to censor. That is why our campus speech codes really don't reduce so-called hate speech. They simply embolden those who hate speech.

I wish I could say that this childish inclination toward censorship is unique to liberal...
