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 Magnum 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.

Down below Crystal Magnum, you'll find moonbat liberal arts professors.
