Pope group’s embarrassing take on college lectures

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 [1] 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.

Simply amazing.
