Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg accused the entire Ivy League of liberal political bias during a particularly fiery commencement address at Harvard University Thursday.
"It is just a modern form of McCarthyism," Bloomberg said of university "censorship" of conservatives. "Think about the irony: In the 1950s, the right wing was attempting to repress left wing ideas. Today, on many college campuses, it is liberals trying to repress conservative ideas even as conservative faculty members are at risk of becoming an endangered species"
"And that is probably nowhere more true than it is here in the Ivy League," declared Bloomberg.
Bloomberg cited campaign contributions from Ivy League faculty members during the 2012 presidential race in order to press his point. Bloomberg, an independent, endorsed President Barack Obama's re-election. However, in his speech, he said he found it troubling that so many university employees were on the Democratic side of the race.
"In the 2012 presidential race, according to Federal Election Commission data, 96% of all campaign contributions from Ivy League faculty and employees went to Barack Obama," he said. "There was more disagreement among the old Soviet politburo than there is among Ivy League donors."

Blind squirrel. Nut. Lucky day.
Bloomberg must have national political ambitions and needs to retune his messaging.
He should consider his own signing legislation to control what people were eating and drinking in New York.
Yea, Bloomburg for President. /heavy sarcasm

What are the other four best books ever written?
If deserving I’ll put them on my book list. Witness is already there.
Ping for later. (I want to see the list).
I don't know.
I allowed that there may be 3 or 4 other books out there that I haven't read that may equal or top 'Witness.'
It's at the top of my list and the only book that ever made me cry.
