Waiting for Liberals to Defend Naomi Schaefer Riley

This is a test of integrity. Naomi Schaefer Riley has been fired by the Chronicle of Higher Education for expressing views that some liberals find uncongenial. That’s it. Just uncongenial (she critiqued the doctoral theses of candidates in black studies). Not “offensive.” Not even that weasel word “insensitive” —  far less “racist.” This represents a profound corruption of the principles that should animate academia and a free society generally. 

Where are the liberals protesting this assault on liberty and civility? Waiting . . .
