The academies have become increasingly leftist.
Too many people ignored the problem for too long, and the result is political correctness run amok.
Now woke law school students wrote one message that will send a chill down your spine.
It’s quite telling that nobody on the Left is condemning the Supreme Court leaker who breached the confidence of the institution and gave a copy of a draft opinion to Politico.
Democrats believe that the leaker is a hero because for the Left, the ends always justify the means.
The draft opinion strongly suggested that the court was preparing to overturn Roe v. Wade, which would send the abortion question back to the individual states.
Abortion has become a sacrament on the Left, thus the leaker is a saint.
But the behavior of presumably a rogue clerk should not come as a surprise because law schools, particularly elite law schools, have become far-left indoctrination mills.
Students at Yale Law scrawled in chalk, “We are the law, not your f*cking court.”

That is precisely how the Left think, especially ones from elitist institutions like Yale Law.
Centrist journalist Bari Weiss, who was run out of the New York Times for not being leftist enough, spoke to an anonymous professor at Yale Law who described how entitled the students have become.
The professor first commented on the Supreme Court, explaining, “To my knowledge, it’s never happened before in the modern history of the court. It is the most serious possible breach . . . To me, the leak is not surprising because many of the people we’ve been graduating from schools like Yale are the kind of people who would do such a thing . . . They think that everything is violence. And so everything is permitted . . . I’m sure this person sees themselves as a whistleblower. What they don’t understand is that, by leaking this, they violate the trust that is necessary to maintain the institution.”
But leftists only care about institutions insofar as they can exploit them to their political ends.
The Left whine about “Democratic norms” being violated, but then they celebrate the destruction of Democratic norms in instances like this.
Students are being trained to become activists and revolutionaries for radical left-wing causes.
During the summer of George Floyd, two New York-based lawyers, one of whom graduated from Princeton undergrad, pled guilty to firebombing a cop car.
These are the type of people America’s once-esteemed Ivy League universities are churning out.
Some of them throw molotov cocktails at police cars, and some leak documents from the Supreme Court.
They both believe the same thing – they just use different tactics.
