In his column today Michael Barone parses Judge Alito’s autobiographical statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee: “The beautiful people vs. the dutiful people.” Barone drops this blunt observation into the middle of his column:
Our universities today have become our most intellectually corrupt institutions. University administrators must lie and deny that they use racial quotas and preferences in admissions, when they devote much of their energy to doing just that. They must pledge allegiance to diversity, when their campuses are among the least politically diverse parts of our society, with speech codes that penalize dissent and sometimes [with] violent suppression of conservative opinion.
Don’t miss this one.
