Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 169 (!!!) it’s the Corruption on Campus edition of the show with your hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist turned artificial intelligence bot Mike Stopa. This week we are happy to invite Mark Bauerlein back to the show with us!
We will talk with Mark about topic number one, which is the Big Lie that takes place on campus regarding racial equality. UPenn Law professor Amy Wax recently remarked (among other things) that “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black graduate student in the top quarter of the class and rarely, rarely in the top half.” Mark penned a fascinating column in the Weekly Standard about the Penn Law faculty taking up pitchforks and torches and launching a carpet bombing attack on the 65 year old professor (how’s that for a mixed metaphor?!?).
Then, speaking of marches, theeeeyyyyy’re comminnnng! The refugees are on their way! They’ve stayed off the nightly news so far – but as the parade of Honduran “refugees” rolls toward the southern border all of America is soon to wake up to…what? a big confrontation? a legally required blurt of thousands of self-selected immigrants into the country? Are we going to be forced by our own laws to take these people? WWTD? (What Will Trump Do?). We shall see.
Our shower thoughts as always and this week’s hidden gem (it is, at least, definitely hidden) is Waitin’ for the Wind by Spooky Tooth (I’m not making this up). Enjoy!
