RE: Where is the Moral Outrage

To continue building on previous posts (here, here, here and my post yesterday), it seems that progress is being made on one front in the battle for academic freedom. As I have previously mentioned, some Columbia students were outraged when confronted by blatantly anti-Israel rhetoric in the classroom. Thanks to the David Project and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (F.I.R.E.), pressure is being put on Columbia University President Lee Bollinger to take action. (F.I.R.E’s latest press release is here, and here is their guide to Academic Freedom.) Bollinger drafted a promising letter and formed a committee to investigate the students’ charges. He has subsequently come under pressure from faculty groups. F.I.R.E. is keeping up the heat though, and others have joined in. So, in answer to the question that titles this post…there is moral outrage, it just takes some digging to find it. (nod to Instapundit)
