Intellectual Honesty

Professor David Graeber, a self-described anarchist is being dismissed from Yale as a result of a number of unpleasant interactions with the administration, and just downright poor teaching. The result? A firestorm of nutty student union activity. And while the administration and relevant department heads are saying that it's more than just that, anarchism was probably the thing that prevented a contract renewal. And for good reason. Anarchists are not peaceful people. They advocate the overthrow of our society, and their Ya Basta colleagues who always show up at G-8 and WTO meetings regularly challenge police and riot--notwithstanding the peaceful veneer of their website. Here are some snippets from some of Prof. Graeber's associates.

By contrast, this gentleman mentioned God in his classroom and was fired, just as Ward Churchill was calling 9/11 victims "Little Eichmanns". He is expected to go gently into that goodnight.

Compare and discuss.
