PFAW Strikes Again
Neas is grasping for straws here for several reasons. First, it is not at all clear that these comments represented official positions of CAP. Second, membership in a group does not mean that one agrees with all of its positions. Third, Alito's personal (and decades old) views on coeducation, affirmative action, or any other issue are irrelevant to what kind of Justice he will be.
Fourth, the views that Neas is attacking are hardly outside the mainstream. For example, a solid majority of Americans oppose affirmative action in admissions. And, in the 1970's, when coeducation was brand new in the Ivy League, many people questioned the resulting loss of tradition. In fact, today, many people across the political spectrum defend the value of women's colleges. I don't suppose PFAW would consider Hillary Clinton too radical to be on the Supreme Court because she continues to be associated with her alma mater Wellesley, which excludes men to this day.
