Andrew Sullivan:

Look: I don’t doubt the good intentions of the new identity politics — to expand the opportunities for people previously excluded.

Having spent the article up until this point making his case for why campus radicalism can’t be dismissed as an irrelevant sideshow with no bearing on the “real” world, we arrive at this curious statement — curious, because a mere four sentences later, he correctly observes that “the new identity politics” is better understood as a Marxist assault on the very notion of a liberal society than a logical extension of the traditional liberal project of integrating minorities, which makes one wonder just what would have to occur to make Sullivan suspicious of their motives.
