      Fifth Circuit judge Duncan was invited to speak about the interaction of the Fifth Circuit with the Supreme Court. Protestors exercise the heckler’s veto. Administrator sent to deal with the situation is the DEI Associate Dean, who in an earlier e-mail to the students basically whipped up the mob. She says the right things but kind of continues whipping the mob up while basically telling Judge Duncan to leave.

      From athletics to undergraduate education to graduate education- Stanford is a woke shitshow, starting with the administration and now spread through the entire campus.  The Marxist progression is alive and well.  Look for us to be playing football in a league with Fullerton State, etc… real soon, these idiots are watching even Kal leave us in the dust by hiding their heads in the sand and relying on elitism instead of dealing with the NIL in a competitive set that includes everyone else.  Give Dave Shaw $9.5M for 4 years of mediocrity, and then pretend we are the destination location for men’s D1 football is beyond fantasy.

       

      “I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?" "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times." It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I

      Disturbing that she came into the “situation” with prepared remarks. . . .

      Comments from Duncan:

      ‘This is one of the best law schools in the world. The students are the cream of the crop. The future judges, senators, presidents, leaders of industry.

      ‘And yet here is a mob of the best and brightest, shouting down a federal judge who’s been invited to campus, and thereby demonstrating that they don’t have the foggiest grasp of the basic concept of legal discourse: you have to meet reason with reason. Instead, their operating principle is: If I don’t like what you say or think, I will silence you.

      ‘Unless those students undergo a radical change in their whole approach to argument and disagreement, they are unfit to be members of any bar.’ “

      Stay classy, Stanford.

      Law students protest the Dean for her apology to Judge Duncan, and those who didn’t join in the protest.

      Stanford would never punish the hecklers… the hecklers have become Stanford’s customer and audience.  It used to be that professional schools served the profession and helped weed out the bad aspirants. Now?  Show me the money.

      This whole episode has Stanford looking like a compromised institution.

      You’re right.  The actions to discipline the students are being initiated from outside Stanford law school.

      Hopefully, the actions taken will be by law firms looking for new hires, like finding them elsewhere.

      [quote quote=7059]I think you’re spot on. However Stanford’s “path of least resistance”, may instead be a rocky road? https://justthenews.com/nation/free-speech/stanford-law-required-courses-under-scrutiny-amid-fallout-letting-students-shut[/quote]

      From the article -“The false narrative running through the whole curriculum is obvious: that we are a systematically racist, gender-biased, environmentally poisonous society and culture, whose legal system perpetuates injustice that Stanford Law grads must address on their way toward ushering in a socialist utopia,” von Spakovsky wrote.

      Stanford Law didn’t respond to queries seeking its response to criticism about its decision to let disruptive students off the hook and politically loaded mandatory first-year classes.”

      So Stanford Law has determined the best course of action is to say nothing? At the very least it needs to defend its decision to disregard Stanford’s Code of Conduct.
