As I suspected, the latecomers to the debate would have to get rid of all the classical liberals who saw the problem years ago and dismiss the as right wing, racists and crackpots in order to say precisely the same things as we have yet preserve their credentials in the high strata of academe they call home. This isn’t the first example and it won’t be the last.
