Grace Gottschling on what it takes to be a woke law professor:
A Yale University law professor encouraged people to “hide” illegal immigrants from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, but says he has “no qualms” about revealing the home addresses of ICE employees.
Apparently, the law professor in question, Dr Gregg Gonsalves, plans to aid and abet law-breakers in the name of “civil disobedience.” Note too that Dr Gonsalves doesn’t like his own public comments – one might call them boasts - being quoted verbatim by people he deems insufficiently sympathetic. To the extent that he wants Campus Reform, which reported on his views, classified as a “hate group.”
Heather Mac Donald on selective outrage:
In the first six months of 2018, more than 60 children under 15 have been shot in Chicago. In June alone, an 11-year-old boy was shot in the head; a 12-year-old girl was killed as she was carrying her baby cousin; and a 14-year-old boy was gunned down by a passing car. Black Lives Matter activists have nothing to say about this violence because it does not involve police officers. Officer-involved shootings are a minute fraction of Chicago’s ongoing carnage—in 2016, they made up 0.5 percent of all shootings in the city.
And Grace Carr on an unexpected development:
Zander Keig, a Coast Guard veteran, now works as a clinical social work case manager at San Diego’s Naval Medical Centre. She started transitioning in 2005. She told the Washington Post that she was encouraged to speak up loudly and often when she was a woman, but now that she looks like, and identifies as, a man, she gets accused of “mansplaining,” “taking up too much space” or “asserting my white male heterosexual privilege,” by outspoken feminists like her former self.
Truly, we live in an age of wonders.
