Duke's 88 Moonbats Continue to Make Fools of Themselves
Remember the Group of 88, the collection of grossly irresponsible Duke University professors who assumed the lacrosse players had to be guilty in the Crystal Mangum rape hoax, and who signed a petition denouncing the innocent athletes and the political incorrectness they were made to personify? The public has now been called to account for daring to question the wisdom of these noble scholars.
The true victims of the drunken stripper's little hoax were not the lacrosse players, who as Terry Moron could tell you, deserved what they got just for being white. Here some of the Group of 88 explain the far worse indignities they were made to suffer:
[T]he most extreme marginalization was reserved for the faculty whose professional expertise made them most competent to engage the discourses on race and gender unleashed by the inaugurating incident — scholars of African American and women's studies. Instead, administrators, like the bloggers themselves, operated under the assumption that everyone was an expert on matters of race and gender, while actually existing academic expertise was recast as either bias or a commitment to preconceived notions about the legal case.
The impertinence of little people claiming a right to have opinions on matters of race and gender! Only the cognoscenti are capable of discerning innocence and guilt, which the unwashed public is unenlightened enough to cast in bourgeois terms of evidence and factual reality.
The authors also whine about being called communists, though one of them (literature professor Michael Hardt) evidently describes himself as a "joyful communist" and demands an end to the capitalist "empire."
Here I was thinking of Crystal Mangum and Mike Nifong as the scum at the bottom of the barrel. But Duke's liberal studies professors prove that if you scrape a little, you can always find something lower down still.

I'd still like to know when that loathsome lying slut is going to be charged with something. She should get nothing short of a jail sentence for her crime. It isn't the first time that she's made false accusations against someone.
If blacks are soooo discriminated against by the legal system, then how does an asshat of this caliber get off scot-free?

does "engage the discourses" mean "talk about"?

mega, I pretty sure that's what "engage the discourses" means, but I could be wrong.
I'd like to think "professional expertise" would roughly translate to "shoulda' known better", but I'd be wrong about that too.

"Down below Crystal Mangum, you'll find moonbat liberal arts professors."
And on any given night, on TOP of her too! After all, scum of a kind, cling together!!!

"[T]he most extreme marginalization was reserved for the faculty . . ."
AWWWWWWWWWWW! Shucks -- it does hurt when you're wrong, doesn't it? I hear the world's smallest violin playing in the background . . .

They are poor wittle victims who got caught red handed, in the National spotlight, victimizing the people they live to hate: American White Males! The Hate Department at Duke wants to make "progress"! And don't call them Marxists! And whatever you, do not call them unpatriotic!!!!!! They love to hate America.
