Entitled leftists declare themselves the sole arbiters of truth
Do you say what you think? That's risky! You may get fired!
You've probably heard about a New York Times editor resigning after approving an opinion piece by Senator Tom Cotton that suggested the military to step in to end riots.
Many Times reporters tweeted out the same alarmist wording, "Running this puts Black NY Times staffers in danger."
In my new video, Robby Soave, a Reason Magazine editor who writes about young radicals, explains, "They only claim it because that's their tactic for seizing power in the workplace."
They learned this tactic from so-called woke professors and fellow activists at expensive colleges, says Soave.
Last year, Harvard students demanded that law professor Ron Sullivan resign as a resident dean. Why? He'd agreed to be part of Harvey Weinstein's legal defense team.
A female student said, "I don't feel safe!" although Sullivan had been a dean for many years. Sullivan resigned.
At UCLA, business school lecturer Gordon Klein rejected a request to give black students different treatment on their final exam because of George Floyd's death. Klein pointed out that since the class was online, he had no way of knowing which students were black. He also told students: "remember that MLK famously said that people should not be evaluated based on the color of their skin."
The activist group Color of Change (which once demanded that I be fired) launched a petition to have Klein "terminated for his extremely insensitive, dismissive, and woefully racist response." UCLA quickly caved. Klein is on mandatory leave.
