Aye, Aye, Aye

Who is the Ringer hiring as writers? This is totally ridiculous.
The phrase “ideological diversity” is a Trojan horse designed to help bring disparaged thought onto campuses, to the media, and into vogue. It is code for granting fringe right-wing thought more credence in communities that typically reject it, and nothing more.
Thus denying anyone can disagree reasonably on ideological grounds. Notice the reductio-ad-absurdum she uses in the article:
History is littered with horrible ideas that aren’t worth poking holes into during a question-and-answer session. “The earth is flat,” for instance. “Castrating homosexuals is an acceptable punishment for homosexuality.” “Slavery is good.” “Women’s suffrage is incompatible with democracy.”
Notice that exactly NONE of these ideas are the ones being pushed by speakers on campus, or the President, or really, anyone other than Kyrie Irving.
