How Dare You Try To Educate Us

Again the audience erupted in shouting, with one young man saying he was upset at her audacity to speak to the audience with such information.
Further to this, Heather Mac Donald visits UCLA and attempts to share statistics with unhappy students.
Ms Mac Donald is of course scolded for her impertinence, loudly, repetitively and at length, and this sharing of relevant data and neglected perspectives is denounced as proof of her supposed embrace of “white supremacy,” and of her “capitalist, imperialist, fascist agenda.” Acknowledging statistics is, we’re told, “violent in itself.” Ah, academia, that temple of the mind.
And again, only more so, at Claremont McKenna College:
Thirty minutes into the speech, police officers told [Ms Mac Donald] to cut it short, and she was given a four-officer escort through a side door.
You see, if you’re invited to speak on campus and you say things that challenge leftist prejudice, there’s a good chance you’ll need an armed police escort to protect you from the mob of budding intellectuals.
