1. Start with a lie that will be useful if people buy into it.
2. Dress it up with legitimate sounding academic activities, seminars and endless conferences.
3. Dress it up some more with angry pronouncements from "civil rights" organizations.
4. Dress it up as an ever more serious and growing problem with huge societal ramifications.
5. Dress it up even more with serious sounding books hundreds of pages long.
6. Repeat 2-5 ad infinitum.

But after all the dressing up, still, the emperor has no clothes.
