In comparison, when did American academics become such a soft, sorry bunch of men? (And let us not even talk about the women who deign to be academics, and wrongly believe that they are entitled to hold authority over men because of a credential representing their miseducation.)
If male academics, social conservative and/or Catholic, wish to have some role in helping restore order, then they must first learn how to be men, just like every other man. They cannot assume that just because they have some measure of authority that they are qualified to hold political leadership roles.
