Facing Down The Witch-King

Following on our previous post, our reader and commenter “Whitewall” has sent along a link to a post by the professor of history at the University of Chicago who was, as it turns out, the object of Dr. Karl Seigfried’s fulminations.

The post, a brave and rational woman’s response to a darkening madness that seeks to engulf her (and all the rest of us), is at her blog Fencing Bear At Prayer. I will be visiting often.

The West is at war with a fell and implacable foe, and this embattled scholar is on the frontlines. May the righteousness of our cause give her strength, and may she keep her sword in hand.

  1. I wrote a post a while ago which details the rampant leftwing bias in academia. It isn’t surprising that she is getting messed with by those communist assholes. They push every institution left until it collapses under the weight of its own bullshit.

    Here is my article which actually shows some relatively rigorous data on the topic:


    Recently I also found an article by a guy who wrote a book about pirates. He said that the academic community have been quite busy re-writing history to claim that pirates were really race mixing homosexuals. Ya.


    This shit happens a lot, and probably to a lot more people than we hear about.

    Ah, you found one. One of the shrinking minority of the intellectual class not yet gripped by the mass delusion. Had her older colleagues not merely winked while marking their calendars to retirement, this madness would not have metastasized in the first place.

    I guess today, for older professors it is hang on to retirement. Among the younger ones it is a chase for the holy “safe space” of tenure. Tenure used to be reserved for the best and most productive scholars. Today it is more often a license to be less scholarly and anti free inquiry. Many universities will in time collapse under the weight of their own “tyranny of conformity”. Let them collapse. The loud bang sound that a check book makes when slamming shut will help this along. My wife and I have acquainted our respective schools with this sound and they were not happy when we told them why.

    Historical context … perhaps?

    JK, that’s an interesting article! The ongoing war against masculinity is a large part of this anti rugged individualism onslaught. I believe there will a “snap back” response from men…mark you I said men, not males. Some things just come natural to the human species. Maybe in time, proper treatment of women will return right along side. More respectful and maybe even, hush hush…chivalrous!
