‘Scaliagate’ At Georgetown Law: The Conservatives Strike Back | Above the Law
I noticed the SJW-ish tone too, but thought to myself: that’s not a bug, it’s a feature. To the extent that the left is often about playing the victim, it seems to me that Barnett and Rosenkranz are saying, “Two can play at this game.” The conservatives are taking the “talk of micro-aggressions and trauma,” typically deployed so effectively by liberals, and turning it around on them.Is it sincere, or trolling, or a little bit of both? To be honest, I find it hard to tell (but perhaps that’s a sign of how exquisitely calibrated the Barnett/Rosenkranz message is).
Both sides in this debate, the liberals and the conservatives, profess to be standing up for students — the liberals for students who feel oppressed by Justice Scalia, and the conservatives for students who feel oppressed by liberal orthodoxy.
