Racial Mccarthyism On Right Redux

Racial McCarthyism on the Right Redux

A repeat and a reminder to let your academic friends know:

The petition I set up to defend John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt from scurrilous charges of anti-Semitism (which is to say, racism) for daring write an academic paper on the Israel lobby, is percolating along, accumulating signatures from post-secondary teachers, as I had hoped. Academics from all over the country are signing, from all sorts of institutions, and it is a pleasure to see so many standing up for the principle of freedom of rational inquiry. (Of course people from all walks of life are doing so, and I’m only asking academics to sign because I think this issue affects them in their workplace and in their professional lives in a special sort of way) . . .”
