The recent meeting of the Organization of American Historians, according to
a report on the History News Network, was characterzied by a “near-unanimity of opinion” on issues such opposition
to the war in Iraq and to President Bush. As university presidents fight
before the Supreme Court to maintain campus “diversity” by discriminating
against people of Asian ancestry, history departments and other humanities
departments at many universities hire according to an intolerant code which
leaves little room for intellectual diversity.
