‘‘By reneging on their obligation to foster independence and free inquiry, [the] privileged bastions [of higher education] have utterly forfeited the moral authority our society invested in them.  The accumulation of repulsive and cowardly episodes... will sooner or later—probably sooner—erode pubic trust to the point that the entire higher educational establishment will implode.’’ - Roger Kimball

‘‘...Liberals... have grown up in an intellectual environment where the racist/ sexist/ homophobe move is the one winning move, the forensic KO.  If you ever watch two liberals argue, you [will soon] realize that the entire argument is like a judo match, where they circle one another to see who can slap the other one with bigotry first and most devastatingly.’’

‘‘The obstacles to [immigration] reform are not bogeymen who want to deport everyone, but the disingenuous who prefer to deport no one.  The culprits are not mustachioed villains who want to close the border, but the more sophisticated who want it to stay wide open.  And the real reactionaries are not those seeking to make ethnicity incidental to legal immigration, but those who want to ensure that it remains absolutely essential.’’ - Victor Davis Hanson

‘‘This should sound familiar to everyone and give reason for alarm.’’

- ‘‘Stallion,’’ commenting at Instapundit
