Campus Watch Responds:

Campus Watch responded to an attack at HuffPost College by Yale political science lecturer Jim Sleeper with a CW blog post, "Yale's Jim Sleeper Targets Campus Watch, Reveals Own Biases." It begins:

In a convoluted apologia for political correctness in academe (HuffPost College, "The 'Blame the Campus Liberals' Campaign Targets Yale," Feb. 12, 2016), Jim Sleeper, a lecturer in political science at Yale, blames Campus Watch (CW) for matters on which it has never commented and which lie far beyond its mission.

He charges that CW and others are responsible for "a national campaign to blame campus distempers [as exemplified recently by certain Yalies] on politically correct liberals":

That campaign has been crafted across more than a decade by Daniel Pipes of Campus Watch; David Horowitz . . . Roger Kimball . . . and . . . Greg Lukianoff.
