DePaul refuses to run FrontPage Magazine ad in its school paper
Chicago's DePaul University is at its favorite game again, stifling free speech. Marathon Pundit was informed this afternoon that DePaul backed out of an agreement to run the pictured advertisement in the DePaulia, an owned and operated publication of DePaul.Read it all (and see the refused ad featuring, of course, our favorite professor in his favorite pose) . . .
David Horowitz responds to critics of his lastest book
[...] I never claimed that the [radical] professors I discuss are statistically representative of the faculty as whole. My claim is that they represent 10 percent, which would be more than 60,000 professors nationally. (In the book I reduce this figure to half to be conservative.) But far more importantly, it is immaterial how many students major in English Literature or Womens Studies or Black Studies, or Post-Colonial Studies fields that are either highly ideological (as the case with English Literature) or exclusively ideological (as is the case with the others). What is important is how many students actually take English Literature, History, Womens Studies and Black Studies courses. Because the academic left views education as an opportunity to indoctrinate a captive audience, academic radicals have conspired to ensure that all undergraduates are required to take at least one of these courses, and usually several. That is what multiculturalism as currently defined is about.
Observant PB readers will no doubt notice that we've changed the look of our banner. It may not be better, but it is differentand after more than a year of looking at the old version, we decided it was time to re-arrange the furniture. We've also made a number of less noticable changes to improve the reading experience; in any case, if you encounter problems with our new banner, format, etc., let us know.
