Well, let’s see now.

On the one hand we have Lawrence Summers, president of Harvard University, who said, in part:

“In the special case of science and engineering, there are issues of intrinsic aptitude, and particularly of the variability of aptitude, and that those considerations are reinforced by what are in fact lesser factors involving socialization and continuing discrimination.  I would like nothing better than to be proved wrong…”

And on the other hand we have Ward Churchill, who is on record saying:

” “True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break. They formed a technocratic corps at the very heart of America’s global financial empire . . . . To the extent that any of them were unaware of the costs and consequences to others of what they were involved in – and in many cases excelling at – it was because of their absolute refusal to see. More likely, it was because they were too busy braying, incessantly and self-importantly, into their cell phones, arranging power lunches and stock transactions, each of which translated, conveniently out of sight, mind and smelling distance, into the starved and rotting flesh of infants. If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I’d really be interested in hearing about it.”

Now, guess which statement the leftists have more problems with.

Ben Shapiro explores this matter further.

I will say in fairness, that I’ve noted some unease on the left with Summers being strapped to the piller for his whipping… to be made an example of. Like for example, the link I posted yesterday to Delong.  Like it or not, DeLong almost gets this. But he won’t call out his fellow leftists on it. That process will be long in coming, I think.

And I’ve yet to see the left try to seperate itself from Churchill, and I wonder if that will EVER happen.
