The “Intellectual Dark Web”

NYTimes covers the “Intellectual Dark Web,” and isn’t completely dismissive and horrified.

Here are some things that you will hear when you sit down to dinner with the vanguard of the Intellectual Dark Web: There are fundamental biological differences between men and women. Free speech is under siege. Identity politics is a toxic ideology that is tearing American society apart. And we’re in a dangerous place if these ideas are considered “dark.”

I guess I was IDW before it was cool to be IDW.

Debra Soh, who has a Ph.D. in neuroscience, self-deported from the academic track, sensing that the spectrum of acceptable perspectives and even areas of research was narrowing. Dr. Soh said that she started “waking up” in the last two years of her doctorate program. “It was clear that the environment was inhospitable to conducting research,” she said. “If you produce findings that the public doesn’t like, you can lose your job.”

When she wrote an op-ed in 2015 titled “Why Transgender Kids Should Wait to Transition,” citing research that found that a majority of gender dysphoric children outgrow their dysphoria, she said her colleagues warned her, “Even if you stay in academia and express this view, tenure won’t protect you.”

Right. Can’t have the left-wing’s trendy social causes debunked by actual science.

Salacious Details

Eric Schneiderman was, until yesterday, the very, very left-wing Democrat Attorney-General for the very, very Democrat state of New York. He was a champion of the #MeToo movement, a fervent hater of Donald Trump, fiercely opposed to the right of citizens to bear arms, and the leader of a multi-state “Climate Change” lawsuit that aimed to shut down or nationalize the big petrochemical companies. In other words, a mainstream Democrat.

Harvard-educated activist writer Tanya Selvaratnam told the New Yorker magazine that her yearlong affair with Schneiderman “was a fairytale that became a nightmare” — and quickly escalated into violence in the bedroom, even as he begged for threesomes.

“Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said.

“He started calling me his ‘brown slave’ and demanding that I repeat that I was ‘his property.’”

But at least he never told a lingerie joke in a crowded elevator. That would have been a deal-killer for the feminists.

I am going to go out on a limb and predict that the MFM will not make Eric Schneiderman the face of the Democrat Party the way they made Todd Akin the face of the Republican Party. They will ask demand that every Democrat running for office denounce him. In fact, I expect this scandal to be buried by the Democrat Media Complex very, very quickly.

Update: It’s a conspiracy.”

Update: Deranged SJW – Eric Schneiderman and Mike Pence are the same when it comes to abusing women.

Update:  Seems like a nice person. (more…)
