A Brief Critique of an Inside Higher Ed
The problem with “Charles Murray to Return to Middlebury College” is clearly the bias of the writer, Greta Anderson. "Controversial" writer, as she labels—essentially disses—Charles Murray is clearly a subjective term. Shouldn’t an announcement be objective, as opposed to pushing the left-wing narrative? Clearly, Murray is NOT "controversial" to the group inviting him. How does Anderson write "widely condemned by social scientists" wi/o presenting an iota of proof to back that negative criticism? Moreover, might the bulk of those scientists be “left-wing globalists,” a denigrating term that might be used by right-wingers? How can Anderson evoke the Southern Poverty Law Center w/o mention of the group’s extreme left-wing bias, as well as its other recent problems? Moreover, the SPLC’s "white nationalist" kill-the-messenger slur has become so overused today by “left-wing Stalinists” and “black nationalists” that it has become essentially meaningless, just like the term "nazi." Indeed, dismiss me as a "white nationalist" because I criticized Anderson's "controversial, Stasi-like" write-up. BTW, I am a Middlebury alumnus. Think! Get out of the groupthink box!
