Torture by the Politically Correct Police at an Institution of Higher Learning
|by Kim Moreland|
Psychologist J. Michael Bailey, from Northwestern University, was placed on a rack and the screws were plied mercilessly.
You see, Dr. Bailey published some unpopular scientific explanations that run afoul of the campus’s thought police, and found himself in a cauldron of bubbling vituperation.
I’ll let you read the details of his case in this New York Times article, but his story is a reminder that racks and screws, even figurative ones, have ruined many a career and have caused untold misery in the victims' personal lives.
Lastly, actions like these PC hunts have a chilling effect on academic freedom, which will ultimately affect freedom countrywide.
I'd like to start a list of PC victims starting with four people who quickly come to my mind: Guillermo Gonzales, Iowa State University; William Dembski, Baylor University; Richard Sternberg, Smithsonian; Bjorn Lomborg, The Skeptical Environmentalist.
Feel free to add to the list.
