    My post was mostly frustration and annoyance at y’alls hard right posts and stances. I’ll still give money to gmu and nvcc, but the situation is a little gross. Like others have said, it’s not the money it’s the strings Ponochio

    I’d rather that Koch money had been used to bribe refs for the men’s basketball team to get them to twenty wins this upcoming season .

    You do realize the Koch's are libertarian and hold views -- as a conservative -- I abhor as amoral and a betrayal to the American citizen - like globalism and open borders (which are no way practical).

    So they are probably more middle road than you would give them credit for.

    Post gets a boner for anything "social justice," make believe or not.

    My favorite bullshit article they did was one about how evil whiteys took over the Ratt in the 90's every day and people of color were "afraid" to go in.

    This occurred simply because the Ratt was as big as a closet then and predominantly white fraternities and sororities simply liked drinking at 11am sharp most days, getting most of the seats when it opened. Which of course made them racists.

    There is nothing new under the sun. We were doing that in the eighty's, too. And it wasn't just to start drinking, the pizza was actually pretty good in the Ratt, too.

    From the comments section: "This is a long standing game played by the left, as Kim Strassel describes in her most excellent book The Intimidation Game. A horrifying read, but crucially important to know. "Disclosure" of donors has been a primary weapon of the left for a long time. They use it to do exactly what they did here: try to intimidate anyone from donating to conservative causes, knowing they might be "outted" and then demonized by the mob."

    We need to stop being afraid - and just stuff it down their throats like they have us for 50 years. No apologizes - in the interest of diversity in higher education - Mason will have a right of center School of Law and Economics. You want to be indoctrinated in left wing progressivism - you have 90% of public and private universities to choose from.

    Too long conservatives have been made to feel afraid - the natural order should be the reverse. Its time for them to be afraid.

    Good article in the Post about lack of ideological diversity.

    "If there is a problem here — and I think there is — it is that rules and norms of university governance give faculty the power to hire people who think like they do. This problem extends beyond the economics department and the law school — and well beyond Mason. There is ample evidence that feminists prefer to hire other feminists, behaviorists like to hire other behaviorists, “crit lit” scholars hire other “crit lit” scholars. Sorting by political or academic ideology is a naturally occurring phenomenon at universities."
