As Twitchy reported last week, Fifth Circuit appellate judge Kyle Duncan appeared at Stanford Law School and was shouted down by protesters; Duncan later called the event a “bizarre therapy session from hell.” Duncan, you see, is a Trump-appointed judge and a member of the Federalist Society, but even worse: he once refused to use a transgender sex offender’s preferred pronouns in his opinion. When Duncan asked for an administrator to step in and restore order, DEI Dean Tirien Steinbach gave a short speech in which she said that she was “deeply, deeply uncomfortable.”

Jonathan Turley notes that Standford has sent out an email offering support from Steinbach:

Turley writes:

Federalist Society leaders received an email (that went to all students) from acting Dean of Students Jeanne Merino to stress that traumatized students could seek “safety and mental health” support resources from various individuals, including Dean Steinbach.

As previously discussed, Steinbach shocked many by condemning Judge Kyle Duncan of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit when he tried to speak at the event. Unable to speak, Duncan asked for an administrator to intervene and Steinbach stepped forward.

Steinbach promptly declared that “I had to write something down because I am so uncomfortable up here. And I don’t say that for sympathy, I just say that I am deeply, deeply uncomfortable.”

The email is also telling in its reflexive assumption that such conflicts are matters for emotional support. After Steinbach condemned Judge Duncan’s effort to speak as causing untold emotional harm to students, Stanford is now moving to deal with the emotional harm from Steinbach’s words … by directing them to Steinbach and others.

These are tomorrow’s law clerks and this is their idea of “justice.”
