As part of their ongoing mission to destroy the Enlightenment, the right has latched onto a tweet by Lawyers, Guns and Money's Erik Loomis, a non-tenured academic at a Rhode Island university.
They're of course trying to get him fired. It's completely hypocritical, the substance of their complaint is preposterous and too often this shit works. They stage a disingenuous freak out, some nervous school administrators over-react and someone's career is in tatters to the chortling glee of a bunch of sociopaths.
I have signed this open letter and emailed the University's mucky-mucks. This post is to do my little bit to raise its profile.
