Professor Ruth Wisse spoke at my synagogue several times this past Shabbat. An eminent conservative in an ocean of liberal/Marxist academia, she is the Martin Peretz Professor of Yiddish and Professor of Comparative Literature at Harvard University.
I had the honor of meeting privately with Professor Wisse. We discussed the power of Hollywood movies and the corruption of the college and university campuses by the multi-culti crowd. Though 79 years old, Professor Wisse is young at heart with a vital, original mind in constant motion, processing and analyzing culture and politics.
When I described the poisonous, intolerant liberal atmosphere that dominates the Hollywood elite, Professor Wisse joked that Hollywood was nothing compared to Cambridge.
