Fired for being critical of Black Studies! (which, let me point out the irony, exists to be critical of just about every academic discipline designed by the White Oppressor class to normalize a heavily European colonialist epistemology).
And the firing? Comes at the hands of the journal of record for promoting academic discussion. If by “discussion,” one means promotes and institutionalizes speech parameters enforced by the left and its thought police.
– Which, I’ve been warning you all for years is the natural and inevitable end game of ceding interpretive authority to consensus communities you’ve previously granted authority to create and control their own identity group narratives. That is, by adopting as your epistemological base leftist ideological premises.
The saddest part of all this, however? Is that Rich Lowry himself didn’t get the chance to fire this unhelpful, nasty, and indefensible racist first — and so save conservatives more broadly the indignity of being branded as haters because a lone actor with hate in her indefensibly racist heart decided to speak out so indefensibly on topics that can only properly be broached by those with the authenticity to do so. Which whitey here most certainly has not.
Meh. You reap what you sow, GOP boosters. And trading your principles for votes ultimately leaves you without principles. Get used to it.
