DEGENERATION OF THE AMERICAN CAMPUS

John Derbyshire has apparently been banned from speaking at a midwestern college for being too extreme. I guess it shouldn't surprise me that any conservative would be "too extreme".

But what is disgusting is he asked them to define "extreme". Here's the quote from his column today:

Curious to explore the meaning of the word "extreme" as it is understood in the minds of tenured academics at U.S. universities, I asked my intermediary for the names of some speakers who had been welcomed at that campus without incident. He named, among others, Angela Davis. Are you getting this? Derb — extreme. Angela Davis — mainstream. These are our colleges, "educating" the next generation of our cognitive elites. God help America.

Indeed.
