The Unholy Alliance Between PC Students and The Shadow Administration at Universities
Anonymous pointed this out in a comment here not long ago: PC students tend to push for expanded powers for college administrations, and increased resources for the kinds of interstitial offices and programs that themselves tend to promote the PC agenda at universities. We see that very clearly in the recent so-called demands by Yale students.
Many of these offices and programs are staffed by people steeped in PC dogma, and they've kept the PC flame alive since the '90's. Pumping up their power and resources would be a way of strengthening illiberal left outposts at universities. The PCs will be beaten back again this time...but they may very well leave behind strengthened enclaves from which to work their mischief more effectively.
