Did you know that sex, oppression, the environment and “innovation” are “left-wing” subjects?
They are according the the Locke Foundation/Pope Center for Higher Education. Check out this morning’s “Carolina Journal Exclusive“ from the Locke Foundation to see what has to be one of the silliest and most embarrassing essays of 2011. In it, the author purports to expose a raft of “left-wing” lectures on North Carolina college campuses during the spring semester.
It’s hard to say what’s worse/more embarrassing:
- the utter lack of rigor in the “research” (the list of college lectures the author presents must be about 2% of what really took place on NC college campuses last spring),
- the author’s rather pathetic — almost poignant — notion that a discussion of sex slavery, LGBT prejudice and — we’re not making this up — a lecture by a patent attorney on “losing your innovation in 10 easy steps” are “left-wing” subjects, or
- the fact that the Locke people gave this nonsense a big headline and pushed it out as their lead story of the day.
