Hat tip Campus Reform
Campus Reform has listed the top 15 most outrageous stories from academia this year, and sure enough, UC Irvine (where I taught for 18 years) made the list. That was after the College Republicans sponsored a speaking event by Milo Yiannopoulos and indicated their intention to bring him back. That was when UCI suspended the College Republicans for a year over some silly infraction involving their security arrangements. After a national outcry, the suspension was lifted en lieu of a letter of warning- pending the CR's appeal. The CR responded by saying, "What appeal?" It was a classic case of outmaneuvering your opponent.
