Conservatives reply to woke objections with a modest offering of facts that undo the woke narrative—and get nowhere. Here’s a better way.
She will stick with her vision, and if her classes get smaller, well, so be it. True believers do not weigh their truth by popularity.
The smartest ones in our society are some of the most frightened, too.
At elite universities one must never, ever criticize students of color, especially the black students. Those individuals are sacred.
When progressives lose, they only try harder. On the other hand, conservatives are too easily satisfied with small victories.
Millennials look for meaningful existence in false gods of social justice, unable to find it where they should, in church, in tradition, in humanitas, in country.
Show the activists and journalists that you have the goods, you’ve scouted the field, and you will let none of their prevarications pass any longer.
We aren’t a normal society, and the timid reticence of the elite whenever a charge of political incorrectness is launched is one of the sure signs of abnormality.
Collective guilt is no ground for citizenship.
We have gone from English and psychology professors punishing their intractable inferiors to commissioners of professional sports and governors of liberal states punishing them.
When conservatives decry the advancement of critical race theory they should remember that it couldn’t have happened without the support of the people they see in the mirror.

Popular conservative thinkers warn of the dangers of class warfare and everything-is-political thinking. But they can’t advise a subordinate class how to climb out of a pit.
Too many people fail to recognize that when liberal elites sign on to “systemic racism” and other leftist concoctions they are not endorsing an ideology, they are protecting themselves.
Any Republican politician who is not at the front in fighting election fraud should be understood quite well as one who never wanted President Trump to win in the first place.
Republicans act as if this is a political debate, a policy dispute, not a culture war. Put Hayek away, and read Mailer, Wolfe, Cleaver, Sontag . . .
Republicans, please hire some people to teach you how to seize the race issue, not run from it. The Democrat position is flimsy; it’s rhetorical, not empirical.
This is a campaign issue that frightens the Left, and with good reason. Republicans should move swiftly.
The question to pose to our humanities signatories is this: why have your fields proven so discouraging to African Americans? It takes quite a bit of cluelessness and self-regard to deflect your poor performance onto others.
