Is the following quote from the H-L article accurate?
"The Family Foundation of Kentucky issued the fliers, which question the
need to spend state funds supporting the six individuals, to state lawmakers who
were in Frankfort last week for a special session on pension reform."
The answer, of course, is that it is misleading at best. The quote implies that the Foundation was concerned primarily with particular staff members. What it is concerned about is two things:
- That there is public money being spent to support political and social activism (in this case left-wing, but right-wing activism would be equally objectionable)
- That UK claims to promote diversity when, in fact, it has whole academic departments in which there is no ideological diversity whatsoever.
