is the firing of Bo Winegard from Marietta College. The article doesn’t say it, but in the podcast interview he mentions that one of the triggers to his being fired was him liking a tweet by Steve Sailer.
We posit that, all things considered, the firing of an academic for legitimate research is a bigger threat to civilization than a coronavirus. The projected death toll from the latter seems to be comparable to that of the flu, and in any case, this threat is, at least in principle, amenable to technological solutions. One can be optimistic about a vaccine or antiviral agents making it all go away. But not so if the dudes from the dude wall have all been #cancelled, and there’s no-one left to give us the nice things, like bridges and medicine.
