The Aboriginal Grievance Industry and the Demise of the University


In a brace of scathing articles for the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship (SAFS), former Native Studies professor at Brandon University in Manitoba, Jeff Muehlbauer, recounts the doctrinal travesty and ideological perversity that has overtaken the modern academy. He soon ran afoul of the Native Studies establishment at his university, which had its own politicized agenda, namely, the preservation not of aboriginal memory but of a particular ideological purpose and perspective regarding indigenous experience. "I am in the boneyard now," Muehlbauer writes. This was to be expected. The best people are being hounded out of the university. The dregs-the cowardly, the careerists, the vigilantes and the Commissars-remain.
