The Dems’ New Civility, Part . . . Whatever

The University of Iowa college Republicans sent out a university-approved blast email inviting students and faculty to join them at various events in a “Conservative Coming Out Week.” 

With all the civility and eloquence we have come to expect from the modern left, “Professor of Anthropology and Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies in the Department of Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies,” Ellen Lewin responded to the kickball, flag-football, and BBQ invitation with this cogent argument against conservatism:


Ellen Lewin
Professor, Anthropology and Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies
Department of Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies

Note the novel use of all caps for emphasis.  Sheer genius.  How will the Campus Republicans ever respond to such a devastating argument?

Bonus stupidity — Professor Lewin later took offense to a student addressing her by her first name instead of “Professor.”

Setting aside Ellen’s useless department and virtually worthless field of study — have any of her students ever gotten a real job — her reaction to an innocuous and mildly funny email is indicative of a problem facing the left.  So many of their standard-bearers — academics and journalists being primary among them — live in such an intellectual bubble that they literally cannot mount a serious argument any more.

Enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame, Ellen.  Then go back to studying the Politics of Reproduction and Lesbian and Gay Anthropology.
