An exaggerated account written with panache, this is a very long article framed at the beginning by the Evergreen protests.  Sympathetic to Weinstein in regard to the Evergreen protests, critical of his persistent but minimally argued attacks on postmodernism (he says Weinstein goes "full Archie Bunker on postmodernist philosophy"), Beckner launches into his views on Critical Race Theory, which he says went "rogue"  at Evergreen.

Hargreaves, Scott.  "The Courage to Say No".  IPA Review.  1 May, 2018.

Hargreaves expresses deep concern for "the dominance of progressivism and identity politics in our public culture", and celebrates the "moral courage" of those "exposing the shallow and pernicious nature of the official ideology".  Weinstein is his second example, although he devotes only one sentence to Weinstein and Evergreen, which concludes ambiguously that Weinstein "had to leave his job".
