@garfiald hold up, didn't something like this happen at another prestigious uni a few years ago too? I can't remember which one but I'm sure someone racist got hired somewhere major and it led to similar threats made to students fighting it

@sophia @garfiald Jordan Peterson except that was only a month or two ago?

@georgieboy @sophia This shit happens all the time. Peterson was at Cambridge also, I posted an exhaustingly long thread about it

@garfiald @sophia Yep, I remember that thread. I was just happy he’s out of my province, but I guess we should take out our own garbage.

@sophia @garfiald not sure if this is the thing you're thinking of but UCL hosted a eugenics/race science/white supremacist conference for several years before it got exposed by the student paper. the guy this thread is about was an attendee, unsurprisingly.

@lennie @garfiald I remember that well, I'm an avid Toby Young critic, this was probably closer to four or five years ago though. I know someone I can ask I think, at least
