Ethics Hero And 2022 Ethics Alarms Award For Most Ethical Website Of The Year: Legal Insurrection

The instances of schools and other institutions violating core American principles in pursuit of the correct radical woke agenda—which I would summarize as obliterating the unique ethical culture of the United States of America while an apathetic public shrugs with its metaphorical finger up its nose and the biased mainstream media provides cover—are proliferating with frightening speed. The only remedy is rapid action, exposure, and sufficient condemnation to make these dreadful revolutionaries back down and either give up or regroup, to be slapped down again another day. That was what Prof. William Jacobsen’s courageous blog Legal Insurrection did when the Providence, Rhode Island, Public School District attempted two measures that were discriminatory—you know, the “good” kind of discrimination.

The District tried to inflict an “Educators of Color Meet Up” program in which white educators were excluded from attending by the explicit terms of the announcement and a sign up form that listed only non-white races and ethnicities. The Legal Insurrection Foundations sent a letter to the planned venue for the event, putting the owners on notice of the non-discrimination provisions of the Rhode Island Public Accommodations law. The school district moved its location and changed its sign up form and event description after being exposed,

But this is a many-headed Hydra, and the foiled event was not its first strike. The same woke district has a loan forgiveness program for new and recently hired teachers, funded by the Rhode Island Foundation, the largest charity in the state, that is only open to non-whites. That’s illegal. In November of last year, after a 6-month investigation, Legal Insurrection’s foundation filed a civil rights complaint against this flagrantly discriminatory program.

With the ACLU now working on the side of the censors and discriminators, and most of the media providing silent approval of these direct attacks on U.S. pluralism and democracy (which indeed “dies in darkness”), it is essential that those who care about the Bill of Rights, equal protection under the law and basic fairness be proactive, vigilant, and courageous. Prof. Jacobsen, who has faced calls for his dismissal at Cornell for his advocacy, and his blog have provided a superb role model with their work, which reached new heights last year.

I’m clearly not going to be able to announce all of the deserving 2022 Ethics Alarms Awards for the Best and Worst in Ethics before my January 31 deadline, but this award is crucial:

  1. I agree. It does not do to try to make up for past discrimination by engaging in discrimination. I wish the so-call racial justice advocates in this country would recognize that.

    • The Racial Justice ™ advocates make their living selling discrimination now as a remedy for discrimination then. They will never, ever realize this as error because to do so would be an existential threat to them.

      Self-preservation is a much stronger motivator than truth, as we all know.

      • “They will never, ever realize this as error because to do so would be an existential threat to them.”

        Engaging in objective critical thought would reveal the glaring flaw in their logic and illuminate the uncomfortable yet unavoidable next phase of transitioning into adulthood.
        Scary stuff for the unprepared brain hacked contemporary SJW who possess the emotional maturity of a teenager, are uncreative, build nothing, but terribly well-versed in anarchy, destruction, resentment, anger.

        Their net contribution to society is always in negative numbers.
        Isn’t that special.

          Heh. We are talking about the Racial Justice ™ disciples here, you know. The word “critical” may be included in “Critical Race Theory,” but it has nothing whatever to do with critical thought. This group is all about the feelz, and neither logical nor critical thinking work in that environment.

          Their net contribution to society is always in negative numbers.
          Isn’t that special.

          Indeed.

  2. Legal Insurrection (and guest contributor Andrew Branca) is my go-to source for legal commentary in self-defense and police use-of-force cases. Mainstream media sources have a tendency to analyze such cases based on their own political agenda concerning things like race and guns, the actual law is either ignored or straight-out invented.

  3. I am not a lawyer, but three blogs I read daily are yours, Althouse, and Legal Insurrection. While I would argue that your site is the most ethical, I realize you can’t award your own creation. L I is to be commended for following many legal controversies, not the least of which was their extensive and detailed coverage of the Oberlin College vs Gibson Bakery case.

  4. I would support the defunding and ending of Historical Black Colleges and Universities. Those doors need to be opened. The BET needs to be canceled. Athletic teams, colleges, and professionals need to be quotified, according to national demographics. We must do away with the various divisive caucuses in our legislature. Applications should ask for “SEX” not Gender but only when it is applicable to the reason for the said application.

  5. Bill Jacobson is a Hamilton College graduate. I asked him if he’ be amenable to going back to our school as president and do the Augean Stables thing. He responded that the college “is too far gone.” He’s certainly a realist. The problem at all these schools is the awful faculties and the graduate schools which are only turning out lefty revolutionaries.

    In any event, it’s nice having someone like Bill Jacobson as a fellow alumnus. As opposed to another Hamilton College graduate, the villainous Mark Elias, the man responsible for, among other things, the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Russia hoax. From Elias’ wiki page: “He earned a BA in government in 1990 from Hamilton College, at which he attended a class taught by Bernie Sanders.” The college invite Elias to the campus regularly to be feted as a hero. Which tells you all you need to know about Hamilton and Marc Elias.
