Last week, Y81 left a comment about the role of the “safe space” debate on college campuses in the election of Donald Trump. I poo-pooed him. I thought that events on the Yale campus and the University of Alabama wasn’t on the radar of the Trump voter.
I spent some time reading Brietbart’s education coverage last Friday. I take it back. I think that reaction to college rules about Halloween costumes and protests about race were very significant. I’m about to wade into those articles again this morning and figure out how to cover this topic for the Atlantic.
It’s not just the Alt-Right who think college kids are sissies. Even more establishement conservatives, like George Will, think the same thing.
And now there’s a Professor Watchlist.
The media and the university are under-fire.
