How a Liberal Understands ‘Intifada’

One influential strand of the left, especially powerful on college campuses, urges us to pay careful attention to the meaning of words. Among other things, we are encouraged to be mindful of “micro-aggressions.” For example, we are told that the sentence “I believe the most qualified person should get the job,” in the context of a discussion of affirmative action, is a micro-aggression against groups that have experienced employment discrimination.
