The Right's Answer to Moore

Evan Coyne Maloney of Brain Terminal was one of the first conservative bloggers I discovered when I was a green internet surfer, trying to find something interesting to read. He has been profiled in an article in the New York Sun today. Evan has been recognized as one of the best up and coming conservative film makers. Not only do I recommend reading the Sun's piece, but go and discover his website. He has many interesting videos to watch.
Mr. Maloney then turns his camera to the case of Steve Hinkle. A student at California Polytechnic State University, he was disciplined by school officials after posting a flyer promoting an upcoming speech by a black conservative who equated welfare and slavery. The school dropped charges against Mr. Hinkle only after a civil-liberties organization sued, saying the university was violating freedom of speech.

To top it off, Mr. Maloney interviews Sukhmani Singh Khalsa of the University of Tennessee, a Sikh convert who received a death threat by e-mail from another student angry over his conservative opinion pieces in the student newspaper. The university refused to punish the author of the e-mail, who called Mr. Khalsa a "towel head" and reportedly urged students to shoot the student in the "face."

"The problem on campus becomes who defines harassment," Mr. Maloney said in a recent interview with The New York Sun. "Who on campus is going to stand up to a multicultural office or a diversity office?"(emphasis mine)

Exactly. I've argued here many times that the favorite word/phrases the liberal wackos love to hide their agendas behind is either 'multiculturalism' or in the name of 'diversity'. I invite you to go and learn.
