Here’s something we didn’t expect: former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg telling the graduating class at Harvard that “conservative faculty members are at risk of becoming an endangered species” — and that’s a bad thing, in case any were wondering.

“In the 1950s, the right wing was attempting to repress left-wing ideas. Today, on many campuses, it is liberals trying to repress conservative ideas,” Bloomberg said, adding, “When 96 percent of faculty donors prefer one candidate to another, you have to wonder whether students are being exposed to the diversity of views that a university should offer.”

And then?

Well, it was a good start.
