The post has been deleted in the cause of academic freedom. As well as repeating and justifying his gay-bashing, Ferguson has expressed contrition for being caught at it, thereby unhappening his offense and obliging us to accept his unqualified and only slightly conditional apology. As he explains in his Mea Non Culpa, his use of homophobic bigotry in lieu of economic exegesis cannot possibly make him a homophobic bigot, because "Nobody would want to study with a bigot".
He has, after all,
labored long and hard to expose precisely what was wrong about the theories that condemned homosexuals, Jews and others to discrimination and death. … I doubt very much that any of my vituperative online critics have made a comparable effort to understand the nature and dire consequences of prejudice.Apparently Ferguson was the first person to have revealed the flaws in Nazi racial ideology. Thus it is doubly ironic that he is now subjected to the Interduct version of the Nuremberg Laws.
There is some consolation in knowing that even if his intergrid critics succeed in burning Njáll alive at his homestead Bergþórshváll, he will be revenged by his son Kári Njállson.
