Scarier than Corona
is the firing of Bo Winegard from Marietta College. The article doesn’t say it, but in the podcast interview he mentions that one of the triggers to his being fired was him liking a tweet by Steve Sailer. …
One can be optimistic about a vaccine or antiviral agents making it all go away. But not so if the dudes from the dude wall have all been #cancelled, and there’s no-one left to give us the nice things, like bridges and medicine.
Winegard, unfortunately, was not post-tenure.
Bo and Ben Winegard (a professor at Hillsdale College), by the way, are identical twins, which perhaps give them an advantage at being more realistic on Nature/Nurture questions.
