      He should be sent to Pakistan on sabbatical, so he can be enriched.

          Nice touch.

    ” Apparently he was a well-intentioned Leftist multiculturalist who has swallowed the full gamut of “Islamophobia” propaganda and was trying to “help out.”

    Doesn’t that describe, sadly, a majority of academia? I’m glad my son is finished school because I fear this type of indoctrination, under the guise of openness, multiculturalism and tolerance, is probably far more widespread than one would suspect.

      For the past few years I have been unprogramming my kids.
      I hope it sticks.

        Keep at it. The corrosive lesson of cultural, moral and religious relativism has given us the mindless, repressive university faculties we are now seeing and their graduates are now starting to join the workforce. I fear academia is going to get worse before it gets better. Where else than in academia and government policy making and policy enforcement will the precious, eternally offended snowflakes find work.

          Academia is in it’s death throes.
          They just don’t know it, yet.
          Technology is about to take them down.

            But, but if everything goes on-line, what about those hallowed halls, those ivy covered walls, those risqué fraternity celebrations, those $60.000.00 per term fees and the student loan industry they support? Yeah, mostly them.

            Whatever happened to radio valve road?
            And mainframes and fax machines and through hole electronics?
            Whatever happened to renting your wall phone from the telephone monopoly?

            No, I agree with you. I just think they’ll go down kicking and screaming considering the million+ of tenured professors and billions of dollars involved just in the US. By the way, we’ve probably dated ourselves. You refered to a radio valve and I understood what it meant.

            I agree with you, too.
            My point is that no matter how they scream of being on the right side of history, they kinda aren’t.
            Being an anglophile, I can’t tell you how embarrassed I am to tell you that it took me many years to understand that a radio valve is a vacuum tube.
            It’s hard when you come at technology from the future end.
            A bipolar junction transistor used for amplifiers is understood as a valve and then they come up with the FET things which are just switches.

            I just started my career in the mid 70s in TV, changing plumbicons in cameras with old guys who learned their trade as radio operators in the Army during the Second World War. Valves was their common word for vacuum tubes. They were already getting so few and far between, we had to buy some behind the iron curtain, with all the import restrictions, permits and paperwork required.
