There are no printable words I can summon that would adequately express my disgust at Paul Campos' latest post comparing people who disagree with his and other's critiques of law school with holocaust and slavery denialists.
Update: You can read Paul Campos' response in the comments thread.
Update #2: As reported by Brian Leiter at http://leiterlawschool.typepad.com/, Campos' primary target in this matter, Michael Simovic, is the grandson of holocaust survivors which makes the reference to holocaust deniers even more gratuitously offensive. Seconding one commenter's comment, is there any doubt that smearing opponents with references to the holocaust and slavery has no place in the legal education debate? Among other defects, it is absolutely insulting to the survivors and victims of those tragedies to compare their suffering with that faced by law school graduates. Even with the qualifier that it's not "as bad" as that.
Update #3: Paul Campos has posted another response way down in the comments thread. If that's too far to scroll for the average reader, I think a fair summary of his response is that since only one person objected in the comments thread on his original LGM post, his references to holocaust and slavery deniers should not be considered offensive.
Update #4: This thread has officially gone off the rails. Everyone please enjoy the weekend, I am suspending comments. (I will unlock and update if the info about the IBR and marriage is incorrect. If there is no update, that means the info is still valid to the best of my knowledge). We now have an update, see the last comment by me.
