Jonathan Last at the Weekly Standard suggests, “The Campus Left Begins to Implode”.  It may sound too good to be true—or at least premature—but his sources are leftists themselves, three of them, who have started to have second thoughts about the increasingly bullying left-wing culture of American colleges.

First source (“‘Everything is problematic’: My journey into the centre of a dark political world, and how I escaped”):

Barwick, HeatherVia Wintery Knight (whence title above), a great short piece at the Federalist by Heather Barwick: “Dear Gay Community: Your Kids Are Hurting”
